Don't Miss the 33rd Annual Lake of the Ozarks Fall Harbor Hop This Weekend!

It's time once again this weekend for one of the best annual events at the Lake of the Ozarks - the 33rd Annual Fall Harbor Hop! Everyone here at Backwater Jack's always looks forward to this awesome fall poker run on the lake. Get those calendars marked now for Saturday, October 13, 2018, so you don't miss any of the fun!  

The Hop
In case you haven't had the chance to enjoy the annual Harbor Hops that take place on the Lake of the Ozarks each spring and fall, here is how it works. (If you already know all about how to hop, you can skip down to the prizes and details about the best card stop below!) 

Your Harbor Hop begins at any of the over 40 participating bars & restaurants on the list. (You can find the full list by visiting At your first stop, for a $20 donation, you will receive the first card of the 7 you need to collect, and you're welcome to play more than one hand if you like. Next, you'll travel to 6 more stops, picking up a new card at each one. 

At your final stop, once your poker hand is complete, you will turn it in for a chance to win prizes. All hands must be turned in by 7 pm on October 13. If you aren't completely satisfied with the hand you've been dealt, you will be given the option to purchase an 8th card for an additional $5.

The Prizes
Prizes will be given out in the form of gift certificates to many amazing lake area establishments, and winners will be notified by mail after the Harbor Hop. The amount of the prizes to be given out depends on the amount of money collected that day. That prize money is divided in the following manner: 
  • 1st Place: 10%
  • 2nd Place: 9%
  • 3rd Place: 8%
  • 4th Place: 7%
  • 5th-10th Places: 4% each
  • 4 Worst Hands: 2% each
  • Random Drawing for 10 Hands: 2% each
  • The Bonus: In addition to the regular prize winners, a section winner will be recognized. To be eligible to be a section winner, a player must draw all 7 cards within one of the four sections as specified on the Harbor Hop stop list. 

The Best Card Stop
There are a lot of excellent places to hop to on the lake, but you're going to want to plan your trip so that you get to spend most of your time at the best waterfront bar & restaurant at the Lake of the Ozarks. Backwater Jack's main restaurant, with plenty of seating both indoors and out, will be serving all of your favorite Coastal cuisines with our very own Midwestern flair. The bartenders will be slinging all of those classic lake cocktails too, plus we offer an excellent variety of beers and wines.  

Live Music & Swimming
The incredible Johnny G & the AllStars will be hitting the stage from 1-5 pm to entertain you during your stop at Backwater Jack's. You may want to hang out down by the pool and swim-up bar too, which are both still open because that awesome pool is heated!

Last Chance For Sushi
Down by the pool, our Sushi & Asian Grill is still open too, but only through this Sunday! After October 14, you're going to have to wait until next year to get a taste of the best sushi at the Lake of the Ozarks. That fact alone is worth dropping any plans you may have this weekend and getting yourself back to Backwater Jack's! 

Are You Ready to Hop?
This Saturday, October 13, we can't wait for you to hop on back to Backwater Jack's during the 33rd Annual Fall Harbor Hop. If you happen to be spending the entire weekend in the lake area, be sure to swing in on Friday evening for our Steak Night Filet Mignon dinner special, and come back on Sunday for Bloody Marys & Mimosas too! When you hang out with us, the party never stops!
