According to Steve Olson, President and CEO of Leisure Hotels – a company with a long and successful history of stabilizing troubled assets and turning them around – visitors to Toad Cove and the new Camden on the Lake Resort, Spa & Yacht Club will experience dramatic changes designed to create a more casual and family-friendly experience. The resort will still offer the same spectacular lakeside views, setting and renowned H.Toad’s entertainment complex with three levels of beachfront dining and live entertainment.
“Exciting plans are underway with a new general manager in place and brand new experience for visitors to Camden on the Lake,” said Olson. “The resort will be the place for leisure travelers and a key destination for the local community to enjoy all the great things about the Ozarks -- with a family-friendly atmosphere, great casual dining and entertainment, myriad event space and boating opportunities, and good value for the money.”
Since the late 1980’s, Leisure Hotels & Resorts, one of the largest hotel operators in the central U.S., has been a key resource for hotels and resorts in receivership and their management needs. The company successfully manages independent hotels and resorts similar in character to Camden on the Lake including Chase on the Lake Resort & Spa in Walker, MN, The Lodge at Sierra Blanca in Ruidoso, NM, and Hotel Pattee in Perry, IA.
New Management in Place
Camden on the Lake’s new management – under the direction of hotel industry veteran General Manager Michael Capps – will cater to guests, corporate and community needs with more than 10,000 square feet of flexible conference and event space, revamped restaurants, expanded services at the yacht club and marina, and new family-friendly accommodations.
“We are excited to invite guests and the community to sample this hometown treasure and enjoy life at the lake,” said Capps. “Our new marketing plan includes packages to entice any guest including boaters on the water, corporate groups, weddings and other events.” Capps has 30 years’ experience in leadership roles with such worldwide brands as Hilton International, Radisson and Intercontinental.
