The main focus is on water activities, and fishing heads the list. The Mississippi has a wide variety of fishing, including sauger, walleye, large mouth and small mouth bass, catfish, bluegill, crappie, bullhead, northern and fresh water drum.
We can fish year round, so call for the best time to try your hand at catching your favorite kind of fish. We have beautiful backwaters with lily pads and stumps or rocky points in the main river to fish. The lock and dam at Guttenberg is only 8 miles away, so you can see there is a wide choice of fishing to be had. The big river also has good areas to water ski, swim and boat. These areas are highlighted by the popular sand bars, while are great places to take a picnic or just relax and soak up sun. Those are only a short distance by boat from our resort.
The river is home to some interesting bird life. We have white egrets, heron and as our name implies, we have bald eagles here. It's interesting to watch the egrets and herons fish in the backwaters. In December of '94 the US Fish and Wildlife Services reported that Cassville Area has the greatest concentration of bald eagles in the lower forty-eight states. Ask about our Bald Eagle Days! From December through March, many bald eagles winter in the Cassville area. It is fascinating to watch these birds; they are very special.
We also have covered and open boat slips that will handle about any popular sized boat.
There are also several good eating places in our area.
