So people go here for the slides that are high and fast. Below that pool is another pool with a bar.....1. the concrete is ROUGH, you will ruin your bathing suit, if you sit at the bar sit on a towel. 2. CLOUDY WATER....you can't see the stairs - they're white, expect scrapes to toes and heels, these need to... More

We went to Bear Bottom on our last day at the lake. I had been before in past years and we usually have had fun. This year there was a few hiccups with us going. The slide had a sign said open everyday 10-9. It was 10:04a so given the early time I wasn't too worried when the waterfall and... More

I really love this place. I booked in advance and that's what you want to do because they run high occupancy in season. I booked it bare bottom resort because I had stayed here before under different management and I liked it then. The new management has made it even better. They are a great family and have put together... More

The rooms are small and the place is crowded. The slide is fine but nothing that will keep teenagers occupied for long. The wet bar at the bottom is kind of sketchy and not really what you want you kids to land next too. The lake side bar is nice and in the shade but service is ALWAYS SLOW and... More

The worst experience @ the lake! Go anywhere but here, the owners literally have their 10-12 year old son and daughter monitoring the water slide and bar pool. TripAdvisor speaks volumes on this establishment when the number 1 are double of the number 4. NGA never going again!!!!!!!!

My daughter and I came here to listen to a band we really like. Looks like an awesome water slide. Lots of patio seating. Service was ok but the food was not that great - bland and dull. I had a Hawaiian chicken sandwich that had no sauce or flavoring. We may give it another try just for the water... More

We waited for close to an hour for our food. When it arrived, we were missing parts of the sandwiches that the menu listed being on them. Two of us ordered fish sandwiches and after all that time waiting they came out raw. The waitress was very kind and kept apologizing. None of this was her fault, she was at... More

Terrible Food and terrible customer service. Some unhappy people leaving tried to warn us but we had already ordered. Took forever to get our food and then half of it was raw. Manager had an attitude and really didn't care if we were happy or not. We won't be back and would not recommend it to ANYONE. There are too... More

First they had only one place for a Jet ski parking and we had two. I asked 2 different staff members to have the owner come see me and he never showed up or sent a manager to talk with me. The food was good. We had a burger that tasted fresh made. Drinks were very good. We had a... More
