The Harbor Hop is a poker hop in which participants pick up playing cards in order to build a winning poker hand and become eligible to win prizes. Players can donate $15  per seven-card hand and start their run to draw their first card at any of the sponsoring restaurants, and marinas along the lake’s main channel and the Big Niangua and Gravois arms.

We invite everyone to come join the fun and enjoy our beautiful Lake.”
