Clearwater Lake Resorts

Missouri Lake Resorts and Lodging
Located in a very densely forested portion of Missouri, there are countless scenic bike and hiking trails surrounding Clearwater Lake. Of the many trails in the area (Watchable Wildlife Trail) and (McKenzie Trail) are probably the largest and most well maintained trails. As far as entertainment in the area the lake itself is not very built up or commercialized which makes is great for boating and relaxing but leaves some challenges if you are looking to go out at night. There are several sports bars in the area such as the bar at Spring Valley Resort and the Piedmont Aeriie. There is also a drive in movie theater in nearby Piedmont Missouri so depending upon what end of the lake you are staying at you could make the drive into town to catch an old fashioned drive in movie. Changing from nightlife in the area to hunting opportunities in the vicinity of Clearwater lake, there are many potential places to hunt. Nearly 40 percent of the land surrounding Clearwater is publicly owned and of that land almost all is open to hunting. In total there is about 16,100 acres of public hunting land making the area around Clearwater lake an oasis for hunters. In the area the whitetail deer population is very high and there are also large populations of wile turkey, and duck. In terms of sleeping arraingements there are numerous campgrounds around the lake, in fact if you are looking for a camping trip there is really no better place to go in the state of Missouri. There are also around 30-40 family resorts that dot the shore of the lake. These resorts typically have anywhere from 10-20 Cabins and in general since Clearwater is not very commercialized these resorts tend to be smaller in size and usually family run. That is not to say that these resorts are not nice places to stay at but typically they are great for your average family trip. The lake itself is great for water sports such as skiing, jet skiing, boating, tubing, and wake boarding. The lake is also a great lake to fish at with large populations of bass and crappie. One thing to note in terms of fishing as well is that in the last several years the MDC and the Army Corps of Engineers have been actively placing brush piles all throughout the lake in around 20-40 feet of water. This has greatly improved the fishing opportunities at the lake and on your next visit to Clearwater be sure to ask the owner of your resort where these brush piles are located in regards to his resort so you can take advantage of them.
