Our name, Bear Bottom Resort, was inspired by our family’s love for the outdoors and our children’s love of spending the summer barefoot.

Originally built in 1959 by Mr. Eddie Bryant, the resort opened as The Holly Air Resort, boasting such “lavish” amenities as air conditioned rooms, electricity and a pool. Our family purchased the resort on August 1, 2008 and immediately started to renovate, repair and re-invent a classic lakefront resort.

Our 58 acre resort features lakefront rental units, two restaurants, three bars, an RV park and campground, two waterslides, 38 covered boat slips, fuel dock, gift shop and a boat ramp.

Our children may text rather than talk, and TVs are all in color these days…but the memory of a boat ride or the thrill of hooking the first fish of the weekend will ALWAYS trump making the high score on a video game. Enjoy your time with us and come as often as you can!

We now offer online cottage and campsite reservations. Visit our Cottage page or RV Camping page and click the Online Reservation button.

526 Bridal Cave Rd
Camdenton, MO 65020

(573) 346-2676


Bridal Cave remains a constant 60° inside, so it’s a great activity, no matter what the weather! Guided tours leave every few minutes and last approximately one hour. Tours are conducted over concrete pathways through the Cave’s refreshing 60 degree environment. Park interpreters will lead you and your family through room after room of incredible mineral deposits. Giant columns, delicate soda straws and massive draperies abound throughout the cave. Millions of years of struggle between water and rock have created this cavern with more onyx formations than any other known cave or cavern. A tour through Bridal Cave is a family adventure you will never forget!
