“What You Need To Know About This Place”
Reviewed 8 July 2012

There was a time when traditional resorts like this ruled The Lake. Most are gone now and have made way for condos and homes.

First, the Location. This is really ground zero. You are about 4-5 miles north of Hurricane Deck off of MO 5 in Sunrise Beach. You can get to most of the Lake by car rapidly. All of Horseshoe Bend and Shawnee Bend is easily reached by boat. For Groceries, you are only 2 miles from 5 and can easily reach Woods Market to the south or G2M to the north. Lots of restaurants around there if you must.


No question... It is showing age. The fountain is full of algae, the game room has Reagan Era video games. The place has like 40 units. The exterior of some of the cabins are very dated but the interiors of the cabins are exceptionally nice. I think they should just tear out all of the ornate rock, fill the pool with dirt and grass it over and make everything simpler. The slip pads are padded with stapled carpet and old tires... pretty rigged up. They should focus on nicer slips and less on gamerooms and a heated pool.


The lake view is awesome. The swim dock is very well kept, clean and sound. The fishing there is great.

The staff is extremely friendly. Very nice. The units are well furnished with solid operating cable TV and good air-conditioning. They do not provide BBQ grills. The place is smoker friendly.

I will stay there again. I love the location, and the flaws cannot erase the fun and beauty of the Lake.

Room Tip: Units A,B,39-42 and 26-29 are the best locations for the water. Serious elevation change on the prop...

We had a few days free and decided to take a lst minute trip to Lake of the Ozarks. Rock Harbor had availability and accepted pets. The price was perfect. Some of the cabins are older but were well maintained and clean. The place in general could use some maintenence but overall not bad. I am sure it is expensive to upkeep a resort like this and the prices of the cabins were not bad so I am sure if they were more they could afford more updating. The pool is small but sufficient and it was heated (yay!). We don't have a boat but it looked as though they have plenty of slips. It is close to everything (15mi from Osage Beach via toll bridge) without being in the middle of it. The owners/managers were very nice and helpful. Nothing fancy but for the $$ we would stay again.

Room Tip: They have some cabins that look newer but I am not sure if they are more expensive. Ours was direct...

A friend of our recommended it for our family. They said it was not as expensive as others in the area andthey provided better service....plus it had an AWESOME view of the lake. Rooms were very clean. Staff was very gracious. And accomodations were the best we've ever had...esp with 3 kids all under the age of 10. Would deff recommend.

The cabins are fine, they were clean and you had everything you needed. My only problem was the air condition units were loud and the beds were not comfortable. I didn't sleep very well the two nights we stayed. Other than that it was fine.

Rock Harbor Resort in Sunrise Beach, Missouri was a great place to stay. When we got there, we immediatley loved it. It has a great view, and we stayed in cabin A, which is right on the water. The only bad part was our fault. We miss understood the website, and assumed that there were two beds in each room. The website said "double beds in each room", and was referring to size, not quantity. So I, along with my mom, moved up to another room. And it was great. It had two bedrooms, one for each of us, and both had queen sized beds.

All I can say about the service is wow. They accomodated all of our needs in a timely manner. And they even cut us a deal because we had to move rooms. They recommended a great place for breakfast, and we ate there every morning. Also, we brought down three uninflated rafts, and they had a compressor that they let us use.

I was sad to leave.

Our group of 20 people and 4 dogs just got home from a week stay at the Rock Harbor resort in Sunrise Beach. We had a great time! We rented several cabins that were all clean and comfortable. The lake is beautiful! We brought 2 boats and spent alot of time ski-ing, tubing and fishing. The cove is large enough to do all this safely without having to go into the main channel where there is so much traffic. One night our central air stopped working so in the morning I reported it to the owners and they had a repair man there and had it fixed with-in the hour. They were all very friendly and helpful. Swimming off their swim dock was wonderful! We would definitely recomend Rock Harbor resort to anyone looking for a nice place to stay while on Lake Ozark.
