CAPTAIN RON’S | LAKE FRONT DINING & ENTERTAINMENT COMPLEX
Welcome to Captain Ron’s and to Buccaneer Bay Resort. We are so glad that you are here. Please look around, enjoy the surroundings, lay out on the beach, take a stroll along Treasure Pass, or just hang out with your friends at one of our 4 tiki bars. Whatever you decide to do, have a great time!
Captain Ron’s opened its doors in November of 2006. This buried treasure was an old, 1960’s mobile home park in much need of some tender loving care. After a year of patching and fixing, we decided to just tear it down and start all over. After three months of construction the new Captain Ron’s set sail.
During the summer of 2008, we went to work on the rest of the property. We added 300 feet of lakefront, making 700 feet in total. Three more rental homes were remodeled, making 7 all together. We completed Treasure Pass which makes for an easy stroll to all of the rentals. We added our second beach, Cannonball Beach, two new tiki bars, both of which came from Shooters, and a second beach volleyball court.
The biggest event at the Lake of the Ozarks, The Shootout, found a new home at Captain Ron’s in August of 2008 and it has brought a renewed energy to the event. The 24th Anniversary in 2012 saw record attendance as over 100,000 people showed up by land and sea to witness 110 different racers set dozens of course records. The Captain Ron’s course record stands at 208 which is held by Dave Scott and Bill Tomlinson.
In 2013, we are excited to be not only hosting the 25th Anniversary of the Shootout in August, but also some other great events such as the Crappie Masters State Tournament in April, BroStock in June, Bikefest, the Marine Dealers Fall in the Water Boat Show, the World’s Largest Pontoon Party and the 2 Dam Days Paddle Race in September. The 100 days of summer will be in full force again this year with activities every day from Memorial Day to Labor Day. The Gypsy Rose, our very own pirate ship set sail in May 2013 and is available all summer for some high seas adventures. Our very own Pirates will entertain you for some fantastic treasure hunts on Cannonball Beach.
Make sure and visit our other location for Cannon Smoked Saloon in Sunrise Beach on Highway 5 and Lake Road 5-39 for some outstanding “Old West” Bar-B-Que. Open 7 days a week at 11, you’ll love the antiques and old west feel. If you have a large group or looking for some great Country Western Concerts, try “The Stables” at Cannon Smoked Saloon.
So lay out on the beach with the kids, hang out at one of the tiki bars, enjoy the wonderful food and entertainment, but most of all, relax, it’s what the Lake of the Ozarks is all about.
