With only a few weeks of summer left at the Lake of the Ozarks, we know you’ll want to take full advantage of the beautiful weather and seasonal activities and there’s no better place to do that than Camden on the Lake Resort. Located on the 7 Mile Marker of the Lake, our waterfront resort property is perfectly situated for a variety of activities on and off the water. The piece that ties the resort all together is the boardwalk.  

Here’s what we have happening On the Boardwalk!

At the Pool

Lounge & Swim

On one end of the boardwalk is the Camden pool area complete with a large outdoor pool with a swim-up bar, two hot tubs and a spacious lounge area with tables and chairs and a variety of comfortable furniture. You can relax in the sun in a lounge chair or the shade of the canopy while gazing at the lake or take a dip in the pool. Soak away the stress in one of the hot tubs with a frosty beverage from the pool bar.


Boardwalk Eats

Toad Pizza

Located right beside the pool, Toad Pizza is our one-stop eatery where you can find grab-and-go hot and cold selections like yogurt parfaits, salads, wraps and fresh pizza by the slice. You can also order custom or specialty whole pizzas and boneless bbq or buffalo wings. You can walk-up to the counter or order right at the pool, never leaving your comfy lakeside lounge spot. 

Toad Island

On the lakefront bottom level of the Horny Toad Entertainment Complex is our seasonal island-inspired waterfront bar and grill. Enjoy Caribbean-fusion dishes like the Blackened Whitefish sandwich with pineapple salsa, fish or chicken Street Tacos, or the grilled chicken Cabo Wrap. You can count on this seasonal gem to be open predominantly weekends during the busy season. Come in off the boardwalk and enjoy a game of beer pong, some tasty island nosh and a frosty frozen drink.

H. Toad’s Bar & Grill

On the top floor of the Complex is the year-round staple, H. Toad’s Bar & Grill. Featuring casual, tasty American fare, 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. You’ll feel at home whether you’re on a date, a business lunch or right off the boat. On summer weekends you’ll usually find your dinner serenaded by an acoustic artist and you can’t forget about our famous weekend Breakfast Buffet complete with Bloody Mary Bar & Bottomless Mimosa special.    

Boardwalk Food

Fun on the Water

Boat & Jet Ski Rental

Since you’re visiting the Lake of the Ozarks, you’ll want to find some way to get out on the water! We make it easy with onsite boat and jet ski rental from Bombay Boat Rental.

Whether you are a novice or hard-core angler it’s their goal to not only show you a good time on the water, but also teach you some new tactics to catch a fish of a lifetime.


Boat Life

What would a waterfront resort be without being able to accommodate boats? Running along the boardwalk of our resort property are the docks, of course! With a 24-hour pay at the pump gas dock stocked with premium marine grade fuel and a world class marina offering both nightly boat slip rentals for hotel guests and memberships. Toad Cove Yacht Club offers covered boat slips ranging in size from 30 to 72 feet with wide walkways and fingers, protected by a state-of-the-art breakwater system.
