We stopped by on a Wednesday evening around 5pm for a quick bite before heading to Laurie fairgrounds for the Lake of the Ozarks shootout Party in the Park. We had read in local magazines that Bear Bottom was on the way and offered lakeside dining. The area was difficult to find, offering very little signage from the main highway.... More

There were about six families in our party that arrived by boat on a Thursday afternoon for appetizers and drinks. The kids immediately hit the water slide. For $10 each, it seemed like the kids really enjoyed the slide. All the adults gathered at the swim up bar where there were probably 50 other adults and only one bar tender.... More

I am sorry to read of you experience at Bear Bottom Resort. As you could tell by the crowds, this is not the normal experience our guest have come to expect. I wanted to share with you that most of our server staff is not 21, therefore can not bar-tend, that would be the reason they are not moved into... More

This is one of the best "boat to" restaurants.at the Lake of the Ozarks. Not easy to find anymore as the sign on Highway 5 is no longer there. This is a destination for a good time, food and drinks. They have have the typical Lake Bar menu. What Bare Bottom has that is different is a really nice staff... More

This place is fantastic! I had my college graduation at this resort. They were very helpful getting rooms for all of my family and friends from out of town. The water slide was so much fun. The owners made everyone feel right at home and made sure my party went of perfectly. The food was delicious and the drinks were... More

Food use to be adequate, however for some reason its now terrible. Worst roast beef sandwich I have ever eaten. Fries sent back 3 times because theynwere so cold. Ordered a drink that never did come. I cant imagine they will be in business much longer. By the way, this is the first negative review I have ever written for... More

Food is awesome. Staff is great. Rooms are clean but quirky old school Ozarks. Great location on quiet side. Owners are hands on. Totally cool retro lake place. Been here 50 years and still cranking. Longest water slides in MO, yes two. Swim up bar. Hello? What is not to love?

My family checked into the campground Friday March 8th and left on Monday March 11th before 9:00 a.m. When we made the reservation we looked through the website and even called several times. After many calls we finally got hold of somebody, a man whom did not identify himself. As most of our party were camping in tents we asked... More

If all you are wanting to do is ride some nice waterslides for fairly cheap ($10 for all day), then this is the place to go! The bar area next to the slides is well-designed and has potential to be a really cool spot. The problem is the atmosphere. It's not at all kid-friendly, which is problematic for a water... More

Three generations of our family from, 3 to 53, had a great time on our 4 night vacation at the BBR! We just about did it all. Including just hanging out at the guest pool and swim dock. We all went on the 2 water slides and liked watching other people enjoying themselves too. The view of the lake is... More
