Boating Fun On Lake Of The Ozarks

The weather's cooling, fall sports are under way, and for better or worse, it's about time for most boaters to throw in the towel. But not before Fall Harbor Hop, set for this weekend at Lake of the Ozarks.

The annual event in early October gives boaters who haven't winterized yet — and those who don't need to — a chance to enjoy another fun day on the beautiful Lake of the Ozarks, just as trees along the shoreline are beginning to show hints of orange and yellow.

The event is a lake-wide game of poker... which is really just an excuse to cover a lot of water! Details for 2021 Harbor Hop are below:

WHEN: Saturday, Oct. 9, 9 a.m. – 7 p.m.

WHERE: Lake of the Ozarks, all the way up to the 59 Mile Marker (checkpoints list is below)

DETAILS:

(From the Lake of the Ozarks Convention & Visitor Bureau website) 

Visit over 40 of our participating locations on the water to collect your poker hand. Enter the Harbor Hop by stopping at any of the checkpoints. To obtain a hand, sign up and pay an optional $20 donation. Any player can enter more than once. The 1st card is drawn at the checkpoint where the hand is purchased; 6 additional cards are obtained by hopping to six more checkpoints drawing one card, per hand, at each location. The hand is complete when the 7th card is drawn. To qualify the hand must be turned in by 7pm at your last checkpoint. Winners will be notified by certified mail.

A few Harbor Hop checkpoints open as early as 9:00 am, but most open at 11:00 am.
