Gotta "HOP" Back to Backwater Jack's for the 2019 Fall Harbor Hop

It's time to gather your crew and get ready for the 34th Annual Fall Harbor Hop at the Lake of the Ozarks on Saturday, October 12, 2019. All of us here at Backwater Jack's look forward to this incredible poker run on the lake each autumn. (We love the Spring Harbor Hop too!) Here are this year's Harbor Hop details so that all of you can be sure to join us. 

How to Harbor Hop
In case you haven't had the chance to enjoy one of these action-filled Harbor Hops, 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 Backwater Jack's or 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 for a complete poker hand. You can even play more than one hand if you feel like it. 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 12. If you aren't completely satisfied with the hand you've been dealt, you have 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 dollar amount of the prizes awarded 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
  • The Bonus: In addition to the regular prize winners, section winners will be recognized. To be eligible for this, a player must draw all 7 cards within one of the four sections specified on the Harbor Hop stop list. 

The Very Best Card Stop
There are a lot of awesome stops to hop to on the lake, but you're going to want to plan your trip 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. 

The amazing food, drinks, and lake view aren't the only thing that makes us stand out above the rest though. We always have the very best live music at the Lake of the Ozarks on our stage, and for a special occasion like Harbor Hop, you know the band will be out of this world! (Keep an eye on our Facebook page for live music updates.) 

Last, but certainly not least, our pool is heated so you can still lounge in the water even if there's a bit of a chill in the air. Swim on over to the bar, park yourself in a lounge chair, and go ahead and pretend that summer never ended!

Last Chance for Sushi
We're becoming pretty well-known for having the best sushi at the Lake of the Ozarks, but your chance to enjoy it is almost over for this year. While the main restaurant will remain open 7 days a week, the Sushi & Asian Grill down by the pool will close after Sunday, October 13. After this Fall Harbor Hop Weekend, you're going to have to wait until next spring to enjoy those magnificent dishes again.
