Great resort! Loved the atmosphere and the magnificent views! Everyone was very nice and helpful. Will be back in the summer to enjoy the water! Can't wait! Also, I went to the Boutique to shop for a gift. I was lucky enough to be there when Amy, the Boutique GM, was working. What a tremendous help! She was super friendly and a complete professional. Amy is the very best! I could not be happier with my experience and my purchase. This was the first time I had shopped at the Boutique. And this experience has turned me into a very loyal customer :) Thank you!!!

In 2022 my wife and I booked a corner suite at Camden on the Lake and really liked it. We couldn't wait to go back. I made a reservation almost a year in advance for another corner suite, assuming, stupidly, that I would get a suite just like the first one. When I checked in, I made sure that they were giving me the type of room that I had booked and paid a deposit for. They bill your credit card a week before your arrival for a deposit, in case you are thinking of changing your mind. The room that they gave me was a substandard room overlooking the parking lot. I went back down to the desk and asked them to check my reservation. They explained that the room I was in qualified as a "corner suite" since it had more than one room and was on the corner of the hotel. There are only a few corner suites available, I was told, and they are all the same except for the one they gave me. Same price. I asked if I could have one of the other suites and was told "no". Next time, they explained, I should call ahead and request that we not be put in a bad room. It might not matter, they said with a chuckle, but at least I could try. They went on to tell me that my options were a) suck it up or b) leave. The hotel staff seemed to find all of this quite entertaining. I voted to leave. My wife voted to suck it up, which we did. We really enjoy the area and despite 5 nights in a bad room enjoyed ourselves. Needless to say, we won't be back, and neither should you. If you are planning an event remember that hotels who do not honor your reservations are bad to do business with.

I truly enjoyed my brief stay at this property. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The room was gorgeous with a thoughtful consideration of the decor to pay homage to the Ozarks, The palate in the furnishing was a collection of white, grays, and navies. The bed was scrumptious and comfortable. The shower is simply magnificent with slab tile to the heavens. The balcony overlooked the parking lot but we still had a fabulous view of the lake. The amenities of the hot tub and swim up bar on the lake was incredible. We got to soak up the lake vibes with a strawberry mojito in hand. We had a wonderful time and can't wait to return.

We were out wondering around America and happen to find this hotel on TA. Caught it just before Mother's day so it was open but not crowded yet. Had a very nice relaxing couples of days enjoying the view. The hotel was clean and the staff friendly (for today's standards anyway).

Just checked in. Was told no upgrades available for purchase and that the hotel was totally sold out. I can literally book an upgraded room online right now. Here for a conference so I was unable to book an upgrade in advance. The front desk agent didn’t even attempt to crack even a hint of a smile and was generally rude the entire interaction for literally no reason. Not impressed at all and a horrible start to the trip.

Outside music plays all night long which you can hear if your room faces the water. Spent two sleepless nights. Also if you want to use your balcony you must listen to this loud music all day. Restaurant closed for breakfast, bar staff seem unknowledgeable even making simple drinks.

It’s a beautiful resort In A cove with a huge yacht club on one side and a restaurant / party bar on the other. The party bar has a nightly band that plays plays until 1:00 am Insanely loud there is NO sleeping in the hotel no matter what room you choose until 1:00 am. It’s really is unreasonable and most the time a country band sounds like heavy metal. We had the doors ahut and curtains drawn. It’s still like being in the middle of the worst concert.

I had been fortunate enough in January to have had this hotel refund my deposit after being hit and totaled in Arkansas on our way to the hotel. I vowed to come back and this time stayed two nights. I also wanted to see if any of the horrible one star reviews given by other TA reviewers had any validity. It did not. I had also noticed on many of these bad reviews that the reviewers had one review only or maybe just a few. This indicates a deliberate attempt, in my opinion, to sabotage this property. They dropped from #1 to #4 following these. Since then the reviews have been mostly positive. Could it have improved THAT much since those negative reviews were posted? I have also three times flagged some for TA to look at but they have not. I stayed two nights in a corner suite and it was awesome. The suite was more like an apartment as the living room area had a large sofa along with a bar and bar stools. The kitchen had a range, refrigerator, and even a dishwasher. There also was a safe in one of the three closets in the hallway by the bathroom. The bedroom was nice and had a great water view. The suite was clean and comfortable. The bathroom was spacious and the shower was nice with a rear jet that could be used as well, if desired. There was free parking in a secure lot. The area is great as the hotel is the last business before the end of the road on this peninsula. I was able to walk to the end and back twice without cars zooming by. There was always two staff members at the desk and they were very friendly and helpful. There is a walkway to H. Toad’s Restaurant which is also a nice touch. H, Toad’s also has a bandstand down at ground level and has live music every weekend. They also have a second floor for private events. Wll thought out. There is a large boutique across from the desk and a spa a little way down the hallway. Since check in is on the fourth floor (even with the parking lot), there is an elevator to go to the first floor where there is a workout room and access to the pool area. I had a very relaxing stay, which is sorely needed. I saw signs all over the area about a 2.5% fee to use credit cards but my final bill did not show any charge. I feel that most likely 95% of guests use plastic and the fees should just be built into the cost, if they are not already in actuality. The one issue I had, which is not the hotel’s fault, was the bar across the lake (Shady Gators) blasting out loud obnoxious music until 1:30 AM! The guest who have lakeview rooms are likely unable to get to sleep until they finally end the noise. I ws told the bar is allowed to do this so, here are four steps the hotel needs to do in this order. Frist, have the owner contact Shady Gators and remind them that many hotel guests go over for food an drink, so maybe some mercy should be shown. I was there at lunch myself. The second step could be to contact the local government entity about establishing a noise ordinance at least by midnight. The third thing would be to purchase white noise machines for the lakeview rooms to try to drown out the racket. The last step should be to post on the site that guests should be prepared to have their hearing impacted and should bring ear plugs, etc. I have a pair in my musical instrument bag and would have brought them, if I had known that I was to have a short night of sleep.

We moved here after our other reservations fell through at another resort. Camden resort is beautiful, clean, and modern. Gorgeous views of the lakefront. We ate at the restaurant on site - Horney Toad. The food was good! They do charge a 2.5% fee if you use your credit/debit card and are not paying cash. We got coffee from them in the morning, 3$ a cup which is slightly overpriced for hotel coffee. Our room was equipped with a fireplace, full kitchenette and big screen tv in both the bedroom and living room. We were more than happy with the modern, clean accommodations. We also thought the crown molding in the rooms added a nice elegant touch. Camden on the lake is a bit removed from the main ozark area so it will add an additional commute of about 10 minutes to shopping/restaurants. The only negative was that the beds were too soft for our needs. This is personal preference to each. The staff at the front desk were more than willing to help come up with a solution and we were very appreciative of their efforts. Thank you. (Jackie & Lisa - may have gotten the names wrong).

Staff was friendly and hotel was very clean. We had a room with a view facing Shady Gators and the main channel. Room had a large couch, bar, small kitchen with mini fridge, fireplace, dual head shower, and balcony. Bed was very comfortable. We ate at H.Toads which is attached to the hotel. Food was decent and service was ok. Enjoyed the band playing at Shady Gators on our balcony. Would definitely stay here again!
