Look I know what the price is I was not expecting the Taj Mahal but there is really no excuse for this.We are talking about cleanliness and safety issues. I have no idea how they pass their inspections. I will let the pictures do most of the talking but a couple things I will mention. This cabin was not safe... More

our room was fine, our daughter in laws had ants pretty bad. Bar was fun and food was so so not too good. Could be a great place if they clean up the upper rooms and improve on service and food. Will go to party but might stay somewhere else or buy a trailer.

This is an old style LOTO resort. The have an RV park, some motel rooms, a water slide and pool and a restaurant. They also have music on Sat evenings in season. Overall the food is average. The nacho platter is huge and actually pretty tasty. The fireworks at 9:45 pm in season make it a fun time.

This is a complete resort. 3 bars, a restaurant, cabins and a camp ground. It also has the longest waterslide in the Ozarks! Live band every weekend, Friday and Saturday, Sunday on holiday weekends. Fireworks 🎆 every Saturday at 9:45! Great food and adult beverages.

Great food and people! Fun atmosphere and perfect setting overlooking a beautiful part of the lake! And the waterslides are fantastic! Family loves it and one of our lake favorites! Very fair prices too!

If you enjoy slow service and bad food, this is your kind of place. Worst BLT I've ever had accompanied by soggy onion rings. Nice lake view from the deck, though. The dock boy was very helpful. Not a lot else to report, but I have to keep typing in order to reach the minimum of two hundred characters.

I will start by saying that we only ate here so I have no knowledge of the "resort" end. It was a super hot day so we sat in the air conditioned bar and had an early dinner/late lunch. We got a 1/4 order of nachos which were HUGE and delicious. Apparently they are known for their chili that goes... More

This was our second time to stay at Bear Bottom. The first time we stayed in a small room and this year we choose a larger cabin. It is a family run business and everyone is very friendly. It is nice because there are two water slides right on the property that the kids loved. Unfortunately we did not have... More

It was ok. Pool is old and kinda falling apart. Slides are fun for kids but not the safest. Bugs and bandaids in the pool. If this place is close to you and you want to drive up the boat and sit at the swimup bar...maybe but I won't make a special trip to be here. Drinks were lackluster at... More

Really fun place on the water...excellent atmosphere, food and service! The nachos are a must...best I have ever had. Room for a couple or large group no problem. They have a water slide that can keep kids entertained for hours. Come by boat or land. Saturday nights they have fireworks display. Very friendly staff!
