Hiking in Missouri-Sleeping In the Rain

A travel blog entry by david.pierce


Today I went to Lake of the Ozarks State Park which was very close to where I stayed the night before. I hiked several trails through the park and spent the night camping in the park's large campground. The campground was pretty dead with it being a Monday night and I got a nice campsite back in the cut very close to the river. I pretty much just hiked for much of the day. I don't think I ran ...

Long Haul through Missouri!

A travel blog entry by david.pierce


Today was a long driving day as I drove from Nashville, TN to Osage Beach, MO. I also ended up crossing the Mississippi for the first time in my life! Leading up to this trip my explanation for wanting to see the west was that I had never been west of the Mississippi before. Today I finally achieved that goal! I choose Osage Beach as a destination through some random research. I learned that it is a pretty big resort town in the warmer months and a ...

High Expectations= Big Dissapointment

A travel blog entry by jandjontheroad

... highways. Arrived at State Park of the Ozarks, very nice, but NO verizon wireless service in park. Have to move into town. Went to the private Osage RV park-downer. Owners very rude (couldn't shower in the morning because the bathrooms were closed for 2 hours-even though ************e in park). Lake of the Ozarks very overbuilt and commercial. A hyper vibe to it. Must be crazy busy in the summer with boats zooming about on the ...

Back in the Ozarks again...

... with them, so they declined a radio interview with us (which is understandable, but a bummer).

We DID hear back from an at-home daycare with 15 kids in it. So after trying to get flyers around town (and trying not to get too wet while we're at it), we ended our day at the Bright Starts Day School...Jessica, who runs it, was so excited because one of the kids turned 2 today. So John did a ...

Made it to Missouri!

A travel blog entry by natolir

Blake's brother is a Marine stationed at Fort Leonard Wood Missouri. We were able to see him for the day and relax by the Lake a little. It is an amazing lake. It is huge and has numerous different stretches that reach out from it like a web. Very nice ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Tan-Tar-A Resort, Golf Club, Marina & Indoor Waterpark Osage Beach

    Tan-tar-a in the Spring


    I spent one weekend the last week in March 2004 at Tan-tar-a with my significant other and two 8 year-olds. It is an older property, but appears to be clean outside of a little dust in corners--that sort of thing.... We had a one-bedroom cabin-like suite with balcony and a view of the lake. It also included our own barbeque grill and a kitchenette.

    Over-rated and in need of updating


    Just got home from a family vacation and was terribly disappointed of this resort. Luckily we just stayed one night and didn't get rip-off more than what we did. We paid $120 that night for a room that had gigantic water stains on the ceiling, peeling paint in the bathroom and a heater that needed fixed when we arrived in our freezing room. My wife and I came to the conclusion that all they are after is the almighty dollar by charging $15-$20 to use their new waterpark, charging people to bowl on outdated lanes etc. instead of fixing up the rooms that are in a dire need of repair. To me this place is way over-rated and families would be better off going to the Wisc. Dells and spend their hard earned cash their instead of here.

    Tan-tar-a O.k.


    We visited Tan-tar-a in March 2004.Prices were reasonable for room/season.Disappointed that we could hear most of what the next room occupants were saying.Indoor waterpark disappointing for children over 9-10 years old,but being able to go day of check-in and part of next day made the $ 15 price reasonable. Couldn't believe observers are charged $7.50 to watch their kids though.Staff were pleasant and helpful at resort. Only one restaurant open so after a few meals there we had to drive to Osage Beach for variety.Parts of resort in need of updating especially the bowling lanes. Only 2 of the 8 lanes can have bumpers so if your kids need them there may be quite a wait . Overall ok .

    Going back


    I just spent a week end at the resort on business in the off season. I am going to go back with my family in the warmer weather. Some of the facilities were a little dated, but everything was nicely located for a business conference. The only complaint I had was the staff. I found only one helpful person on the hotel staff that was not rude during this weekend. However the resturant and lounge employees were very pleasant. We'll see if it is as good on a family vacation.

    Wonderful for a single dad


    we have stayed here for 3 years in a row and have fell in love with the varity. my daughter rides horses while my son and i went on a guided fishing trip. and they loved the sports facilities. and choice of indoor or outdoor pool.

    We had a pretty good time


    We stayed here to celebrate our honeymoon. Our stay was okay. I used the spa and really thought it was reasonably priced for a spa. The staff there was very friendly. We also ate at all but one of the eating establishments. We were very very pleased with the food. (except Sbarros-it was just okay) Our check-in was very easy. Our room was located with others right on the lake. We had no problems with noise, but there was a slight insect problem. I found a few in the bathroom (which is right by the front door). We did however encounter a problem with the in-room babysitting. This was the whole reason we went to this place. We had planned on using the marina and doing some parasailing.

    Very disappointing


    We were highly disappointed with the entire resort. While it was nestled in beautiful surroundings, the rooms in the resort had paper thin walls, bugs in the bathroom, and was very noisy. The staff was rude and unconcerned with the problems we encountered. The "activities" were very expensive, rarely available, and overall a rip-off. I will never recommend or stay at this overpriced, overrated "resort" again.

    Loved estates sales


    The other review is right on the money! Estates Sales does a nice job.

    We have stayed with them numerous times and their rooms are always clean and nice. A little hassle to check in after hours but cheaper than staying with TanTarA Resort. Would recommend them to anyone staying at TanTarA.

    Stay with Estates Sales & Property Management


    Estates Sales & Property Management is a small business across the street from Tan Tar A that rents homes in the Estates part of Tan Tar A Resort. Our unit had a hot tub and was very nicely decorated. Very clean and the staff treated us like we were family. We come to Tan Tar A a couple times a year and this was our first time staying in one of Dave Huffman's homes. It was clean and cheaper that staying with the Resort. We paid $179. per night for a one bedroom suite with a hot tub and screened in porch. We have already booked for next spring! Anyone staying at Tan Tar A should check out what this company has to offer.

    I expected more...


    I had always wanted to stay here so we did this past Fourth of July.

    Everyhting was great except the room and the parking garage smelled of vomit. I am not sure if I would stay here again.
