We've been going to Skyline Resort for 12 years now and have some of our best memories from this family-friendly resort. It is located on a quiet no-wake cove, which is perfect for fishing and swimming. If you have a nice boat, you can't beat the water here - no need to worry about your boat banging against the dock because of high waves or big boats passing by.
The best skiing and tubing on the lake is a 5 minute boat ride to the little Niangua. The water is smooth as glass - especially early morning. If you want the action of the bigger part of the lake then it is only a 15-20 minute drive by car or a 30-40 minute drive by boat. Osage Beach is a 20 minute drive by car making it easy to get to the outlet mall, movie theater, nigh life and other attractions.
There are plenty of restaurants around by car or boat. We like to frequent Captain Ron's, The Fish & Co and Larry's on the Lake all by boat.
If you like to fish then it's tough to beat this resort. Crappie, bass, catfish all make for a great fish-fry at the end of the week.
The hosts are friendly, helpful and genuinely make you feel welcome and at home. The cabins are always clean. We have stayed in probably half of the 14 cabins over the years. They are air conditioned, have large refrigerators and are comfortable and secure.
We have visited the condos, large rental homes and larger resorts around the lake, but nothing compares to the simple family vacation of a cabin rental in a family resort on a beautiful lake.
We just got back Saturday and are already looking forward to next year!
