Camden on the Lake Resort
Ranked #1 of 12 Hotels in Lake Ozark
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 5 August 2014

This was an entertainment venue before the hotel was there, so I knew what to expect, but it is noisy with a band playing until midnight outside. The view from our sixth floor balcony was gorgeous; pool and two hot tubs are great. The food at H.Toads (attached) was delicious. Having a place to order and eat a meal by or in the pool is handy. Rooms are very spacious.

Room Tip: Lakeside, for sure--the higher the better.

Dear Guest,

Thank you for choosing to stay at the Camden on the Lake Resort for your girls weekend. We are delighted that you enjoyed your weekend and hope you had fun with the live entertainment we had on our outdoor stage and inside at the H. Toads Bar and Grill.

Football season is right around the corner, which could provide other opportunities to get back to the Lake of the Ozarks and enjoy another girls weekend away. We hope to see you back at the Camden on the Lake Resort again in the near future. It is a totally different experience at the Lake in the fall.

Sincerely,

Dexter Whitney

We stayed here for our 5th wedding anniversary and had a great stay. We stayed on the opposite site of the restaurant and bar and experienced little noise. It does seem to be a place where college kids come to party, but request a room with a lake view facing the parking lot and you will miss all of the partying noise that other reviewers mentioned. Parking can be tricky on a Friday or Saturday night but we didn't have any trouble. Our room was clean and comfortable and we couldn't have asked for a better stay! We will come back again.

Dear Guest,

Congratulations on celebrating your 5th wedding anniversary and thank you for choosing to spend it with us at the Camden on the Lake Resort.

We are thrilled that you enjoyed your room and all of the amenities our resort has to offer. That was a great tip you provided for other Trip Advisor readers regarding staying on the front side of the hotel if you are looking for a more quiet stay.

Thank you for taking the time to write and share your recent experience. We really appreciate your kind words and hope you have an opportunity to visit us again soon, perhaps for our Foreigner concert on August 30th.

Sincerely,

Dexter Whitney

The pretty view came at a great cost - lack of sleep as a live band plays right outside your window until 1:00 a.m. every night. This is a party place and is not for children. And the entire resort show the abuse it takes from the partying clientele. Absurdly overpriced. Stayed at The Broadmoor in Colorado last year for the same rate and experienced true class, elegance, beauty and exquisite service there. Meanwhile Camden didn't even remake our beds or keep us supplied with toilet paper!!!

Can't beat this place for style and class! Great location within walking distance of two of what seemed the most lively night spots. All the amenities are on site and the rooms were like brand new! Had a beautiful room over looking the water on the 6th floor ! Definitely recommended

Dear Guest,

Thank you for choosing to stay at the Camden on the Lake Resort. You were absolutely correct in your comment regarding the entertainment in our cove. There is not another spot on the lake like it. Between H. Toads Bar and Grill and the Shady Gator next door you can find great entertainment 7 days a week through the summer months.

We appreciate your kind remarks about the quality of our resort. Not only is our resort by far the most contemporary design, we have a great group of employees dedicated to providing excellent customer service.

Thank you for taking the time to write and share your recent experience at the Camden on the Lake Resort We hope to see you back at the resort again in the near future.

Dexter Whitney

I've been staying at Camden on the Lake since it was built; in the early years I would vacation there and do conferences. Now, I only attend two conferences a year there. There are two types of people who stay here: 1) the weekend partiers that trash the rooms and 2) conventions during the week. (Some families stay during the week, too.) In the earlier years the rooms withstood the wear-and-tear of the partiers, but not any more. The beds are worn out; the furniture is scuffed and scratched; and most everything else is looking rough or doesn't work anymore. (However, the carpet has been recently replaced.) The customer service is spotty at best; front desk staff is pleasant but not overly professional; the conference staff is very good; the housekeeping staff is lacking in quality of cleaning, etc.; and the noise from the bars is too much. If you go to party, this is the place for you. If you are a conference participant, not so much. Also, don't expect the conference rate to be extended before or after your conference. It's a big no-go with Camden on the Lake. While we will continue our spring conference for now, I was pleased that we made the decision to move our summer conference elsewhere.

Room Tip: Don't expect to get your room at check-in time. At our last three conferences it has been after...

Dear Guest,

Thank you for taking the time to write and share your constructive comments with us regarding your recent stay at the Camden on the Lake Resort.

We are very fortunate to have a group of owners who are totally committed to maintaining the resort in new condition. We have performed numerous renovation projects in the past 2 years; all of the carpeting in the guestrooms has been replaced. All of the carpeting in the public areas including all guest corridors, ballroom and meeting space has been replaced. Last year we replaced all of the mattresses in the sleeper sofa's, all of the crown molding throughout the hotel has been calked and our public docks received a total overhaul and expansion this year. There are numerous projects yet to be completed this year including touching up all of the woodwork in the guestrooms (as business permits) along with numerous landscaping projects.

Due to the increased demand for our guestrooms on the summer weekends we have had to discontinue extending discounted group rates into the high demand weekend dates. We apologize if this has caused an inconvenience for you and other members of your group. We appreciate your business and look forward to having you back at the Camden on the Lake again in the near future to see fist hand the improvements we have made.

Sincerely,

Dexter Whitney
