Tag Archives: Fall at 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.

Summer is in full force here at the beautiful Lake of the Ozarks. There’s no better time for a quick getaway with a couple girlfriends or your family before school starts back up. But perhaps you’ve got something else on your mind. Does your office, company or team need a getaway, too? Now is the perfect time to plan a Fall Sales Meeting, Awards Ceremony, Team Building Retreat or any other kind of conference or event you may need.

Fall is a very popular time for conferences at Camden on the Lake Resort and for good reason! There are so many perks to holding your meeting or event with us any time of the year, but there’s something particularly special about a Fall conference. Read on to learn why!

The Toad

The Lake

Undeniably, a big part of what makes Fall such a great time to get your team together is the Lake of the Ozarks and here at Camden, we embrace that. Situated on the 7 Mile Marker of the lake, our property features an expansive boardwalk that runs along the waterfront connecting one end of the resort to the other.

In Fall, the weather here is usually very pretty and the traffic on the water slows down from the rush of the summer. This makes it the ideal time to take advantage of being on the water.

The Lake Aerial

Private Charters & Cruises

Take your event or meeting on the water by chartering a private boat cruise. Your group can be picked up and dropped off right from the Camden boardwalk. You can really customize your experience with meal and drink choices on the cruise, as well, and your Sales Manager can help you with every step of the planning process.  

Boat & Jet Ski Rental

If you’d like to give your attendees a block of free time or structured activity, there is also the option of boat and jet ski rental right off the boardwalk with Bombay Boat Rental. Rent a group of boats complete with captains and cove out for the day with your team or let loose on a jet ski ripping through the water.

Lakeside Receptions

Another very popular option is to host a lakeside reception or happy hour. Here at Camden, we have a full-service banquet staff and catering menu complete with a fully customizable bar experience. You can choose combinations like a hosted happy hour with hor d’oeuvres on the waterfront boardwalk before going inside to a more formal sit-down plated dinner with a cash bar. The choice is yours and we will be here to help you plan it from start to finish.  

Rent a Boat

Custom Meeting Experience

Our resort complex features over 19,000 feet of flexible meeting space as well as multiple dining options throughout the resort whether it’s catered meals or a la carte menu choices.

Flexible Meeting Space

Your specially-assigned Convention Services Manager will guide you in choosing the right room or rooms for your event by group theme, activities, and size. For example, the Theatre Room, with its stadium-style seating and a large projected screen is perfect not only for a Movie Night event but for classes and lectures where you can utilize the large screen for demonstration purposes.

On the first floor of the resort is the lake view Grand Ballroom which can be converted into three separate meeting rooms when needed. The Lakeside Room has large garage doors that can be opened up to the lakeside boardwalk for an open-air feel. If you’re looking for a smaller room to have a team breakout or a board meeting, the Camden Conference Room provides nicely, whereas the Harbor Ballroom, with its bars and dance floor, is the ultimate setting for an evening reception.

Catered Meals

When planning out your group’s meals and special activities, you’ll be able to create a fully satisfying event with our catering menu. From breakfast, lunch, dinner, drinks, and breaks, plated or buffet, you are sure to find a winning combination of meals and snacks for any size group. Have a specific theme in mind? Our culinary team is happy to create a custom menu that works within your group’s size and budget.

A La Carte & More

For even more options, Camden on the Lake is home to H. Toad’s Bar & Grill, a year-round restaurant featuring casual upscale American fare. H. Toad’s hosts a well-rounded menu and is a great choice for inviting your guests to order a la carte by providing meal vouchers for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Your Convention Services Manager can help you with this as well!

H. Toad’s also features a private space called Toadcove Room that is perfect for holding more intimate meals, meetings, parties and receptions. You can mix and match with a preset menu of H. Toad’s selections or choose from the catering menu. The choice is yours!

Toad Island is the Horny Toad’s island-inspired waterfront bar & grill. Since Toad Island is seasonally open to the public in the summer, it’s a popular place to host a private special event, dinner or social in the Fall. Your guests can play games like beer pong, sip on a frozen drink and sample tasty island nosh. Just inquire about availability in booking it for your group.
