Tag Archives: Dining Lake of the Ozarks

As the summer season at the Lake of the Ozarks is coming to an end, there comes the dawning of a time that many would argue is the best time to visit our beautiful Lake area – Fall! That magical time right after summer ends when the breeze is still warm, the leaves start changing, and life seems to move just a little slower before the craze of the holiday season begins.

It’s the perfect time to show the one you love that you appreciate them by planning a Fall Date Trip to Camden on the Lake Resort.

Get Out on The Water

It has been a busy summer at the Lake, with record-number visitors. The Lake area has provided a much-needed getaway for many to let loose and unwind. One of the best ways to enjoy the Lake of the Ozarks is to get out on the water! At Camden, we make it easy for you to do just that.

Boat & Jet Ski Rental

With a Bombay Boat Rental location right on our boardwalk, you can walk down from your room and rent a boat or jet skis. Spend the day coving out or exploring the lake or let off a little steam ripping through the water on a jet ski.

Fishing Charter

Treat your special someone to a day out on the water with a private fishing guide. Whether you are a novice or hard-core angler Firstmate Fishing Charters will not only show you a great time on the water, but also teach you some new tactics to catch a fish of a lifetime. All guides are USCG licensed, and they offer 4 hour and 8 hour charters.

With either of these options be sure to call ahead and reserve your spot to ensure availability.

Spa & Shopping

Spa 54

If a lakeview pedicure, Fusion Stone Massage or even a couples massage sounds enticing, check out the special Spa Packages as an option for your Fall Date Trip. The onsite Spa 54, an AVEDA™ exclusive full-service spa and salon, offers a variety of plant-powered skin, hair, nails, and body treatments. Speak to one of the friendly receptionists to book an appointment or build a custom plan for your stay.

Camden Boutique

Don’t forget to stop by Camden Boutique for a little retail therapy while you’re here. The boutique carries on-trend apparel, jewelry and accessories and a uniquely curated selection of gifts and lake-inspired home decor.

In the Mood for Romance

Camden on the Lake’s luxurious and spacious accommodations will set the mood for a romantic getaway. All rooms include high end finishes, quality furniture and fully furnished kitchenettes, large bathroom with over-sized showers, lavish beds with high thread count linens, plush comforters and pillows. All Grand and Double Grand Suites include additional amenities such as private balconies overlooking the water and a built in fireplace, sure to enhance the ambiance of any evening.

Take it up a notch even further by adding on a stunning bouquet or a chilled champagne to await your sweetheart upon entering the room.

Wine & Dine

On the top floor of the Horny Toad Entertainment Complex is the year-round staple, H. Toad’s Bar & Grill. H. Toad’s hosts a well-rounded menu of soup and salads, shareable appetizers, tasty burgers and sandwiches, and creative entrees of pasta, steak, and fish – including gluten-free options.

Don’t forget about drinks and dessert! With a full bar offering all the classics as well as specialty cocktails and wine, you can plan to wine and dine your date any night of the week. The unassuming atmosphere of H. Toad’s makes anyone comfortable whether you’re dressed to the nines or coming off the boat. Prefer to stay in? Have your meal delivered right to the door of your guest room.

Folds of Honor 2020

There will be opportunities throughout the property all weekend for guests and concert-goers to donate directly to Folds of Honor and a portion of the weekend’s proceeds at Camden on the Lake and the Horny Toad Entertainment Complex will be donated to Folds of Honor.

The weekend will culminate in a golf tournament at the beautiful Osage National Golf Resort on Monday. For tournament details, to sign up a team, or for any other sponsorship opportunities and questions please email sales@camdenonthelake.com.

Toad’s is right there offering a wide selection of meal choices to suit every picky palate. There’s even a kid’s menu!

Our lakeview suites even have private balconies. Plan ahead to have a fresh bouquet or chilled champagne waiting in your room to add to the surprise. Order in room service or walk across the skywalk to enjoy a date-night dinner at onsite H. Toad’s.

One of the most special places at Camden on the Lake Resort is the lakefront boardwalk. It runs along the shoreline of the beautiful Lake of the Ozarks and is the connecting factor to all of the different parts of the resort from Toad Cove Yacht Club & Marina to the 117 guest room hotel to the Horny Toad Entertainment Complex. It’s home to the pool with the swim-up bar, two hot tubs, multiple bars and the famous lakeside stage. 

The boardwalk is also home to several different eateries serving up a tasty selection of hot (and cold!) food options throughout the year.
