It's Almost Time to Harbor Hop at the Lake of the Ozarks Again!

It's just about time for the 34th Annual Fall Harbor Hop & Shorty Pants Lounge & Marina is the perfect place to both begin and end your journey! The restaurant will have all of your favorite Cajun food & drinks, a card stop, and live music. The best gas dock at the Lake of the Ozarks will have everything you need for a full day of fun out on the water. Oh, and if you need a place to stay while you're in town, we can take care of that for you too!

Fall Harbor Hop 2019
This year the Fall Harbor Hop will happen on Saturday, October 12. For those of you that are new to the Harbor Hop, participating is easy. Get started at our Lake of the Ozarks waterfront bar & restaurant or any of the over 40 waterfront bars & restaurants on the Harbor Hop stop list (which can be found at A $20 donation at your first stop gets you card #1, and you are welcome to enter more than once. From there, you will cruise to 6 more participating stops, picking up a new card at each one.

Turn your completed poker hand in at the 7th stop. If you aren't completely satisfied with your hand, you have the option to draw an 8th card for an additional $5. The entry fees collected for the hop are what determine the prize amounts available. As long as you turn in your hand before 7 pm on October 12, your share of the winnings could be:

1st Place: 10%
2nd Place: 9%
3rd Place: 8%
4th Place: 7%
5th-10th Places: 5%
4 Worst Hands: 4% each
Random Drawing for 10 Hands: 2% each

The Bonus: Section winners will be recognized from players that draw all 7 of their cards within a single section of checkpoints as labeled on the stop list. 

Your Shorty Pants Hop Experience
Beginning at 11 am, you can get the Fall Harbor Hop started by drawing your first card at our waterfront Cajun restaurant at the Lake of the Ozarks and grabbing some lunch before heading out for your next card. 

Of course, you might choose to swing by Shorty Pants a little later in the day too. We'll have the talented Steven Moore on stage to keep you entertained while you relax on the deck with a refreshing hurricane or ice-cold beer. (*UPDATE: Due to the weather forecast, Steven Moore will be performing at Dog Days instead.) 

We're a great spot to end your hop too because then you won't feel like you have to rush off. Instead, you can enjoy the rest of a gorgeous fall evening right here with us! 

Stock Up at Shorty Pants Marina
It's an excellent idea to begin your Fall Harbor Hop with us at the best gas dock at the Lake of the Ozarks. You can fill your boat or jet ski's tank plus pick up any boating essentials you might need for the day in the C-store. There you'll find ice, soft drinks, water, package liquor, snacks, sunglasses, koozies, hats, cool Shorty Pants sweatshirts, and a lot more. 

There's even free coffee to fight that early morning/late night autumn chill, plus free popsicles for the kids and free dog treats for your 4-legged passengers. If you need a place to park your watercraft while you're in town, give our marina a call at 573-302-1004 to check availability. 

Need a Place to Stay?
If you'll be joining us for the Fall Harbor Hop from out of town, you're going to need a place to stay while you're here. Right now our 2 amazing Lake of the Ozarks vacation house rentals are available for Harbor Hop weekend but don't put off booking your stay or they may be gone!

The Glass House offers 1,500 square feet of living space and can easily house up to 8 guests. The Red House boasts 3,400 square feet of living space and can sleep up to 16. Both offer plenty of room to bring the whole family along or a large group of friends. Each house also has an amazing lake view with large decks to sit on and admire it from, plus all the comforts of home you'll need during your stay. 

As an added bonus, they are only a short walk away from Shorty Pants Lounge & Marina. Divide up the price of staying in one of these gorgeous houses between a few people and end up spending a lot less than a hotel stay for a lot more comfort and amenities!  

Gather your crew now and make plans to participate in the 34th Annual Fall Harbor Hop. The weather is perfect, the scenery is gorgeous, and the lake is a lot less crowded than it is mid-summer. Also, Shorty Pants Lounge & Marina is still open 7 days a week, so you can even make it an extended fall vacation and spend a few extra days enjoying yourself!
