“Get Away Joy”
Reviewed 16 February 2013

We found this quaint resort to be a welcoming getaway from the busyness of life. We brought our camper with our dog and were welcomed with beautiful scenery and deer out our front window. We enjoyed the beautiful weather for October and November and the boat rides in the evening. The owners were helpful to tell us about the fishing and what fish were biting on at the time. We were delighted in some good bass suppers from our fishing trips.
If you are wanting a wholesome place to take your loved ones to enjoy beautiful outdoor sports and good living we highly recommend Blue Waters Resort to all.
Bait is available and treats at the Resort office and great to be able to use the computer there also.
We love it !

Room Tip: We have a camper there so I would say bring somethings for outdoor cooking as there are outside gril...

We were looking for someplace quiet to just have a romantic get-a-weekend for the two of us, very quiet and isolated, so much so we didn't have cell phone service (don't worry, you can leave the front desk number with family to reach you). Stayed in the Lighthouse cabin, had a big King bed, kitchen and a small table to have breakfast while over looking the lake.

This is a quiet 'mom & pop' (and Holly the dog) run camp ground. several themed cabins. They have a web site, http://www.bluewatersresort.net or google them and add Protem Missouri.

The lake level is way down but the water was calm and we enjoyed a nice camp fire on the shore line. Even thad two deer wander down to check on us. Billions of stars in the night sky and so quiet, really quiet...every once in a while you might hear the woodpeckers. Be sure to have a small snack in the morning for Holly as she makes her rounds.

We visited in Mid November, a little chilly and we missed the changing of the leaves...we'll head back in the late spring or summer to enjoy boating on the lake (Bull Shoals).

It's a long drive if your coming from Kansas City, but the peace and quiet was well worth the trip.

Room Tip: Didn't see a cabin I thought would be better than the other, we selected the Lighthouse cabin 3...
