Bent Tree Harbor Subdivision, is a gated community nestled in the woods outside the city limits of Warsaw, Missouri. With many of our 738 acres backing up to The Truman Lake Reservoir and/or Corp of Engineer properties, our community offers a serene rural setting with conveniently located marinas, State Parks, restaurants and shopping.

Lots within our community are purchased properties, governed by a Board of Trustees representing the Bent Tree Harbor Home Owner’s Association, Inc. Sales by owners are made regularly on lots of varying size and price points suitable for permanent buildings or camping for both full time and part time residents.

We have a Board of Trustees that consists of 5 elected members from the community at large. 

We also have the following paid staff: 
    1. Three (3) office staff, 
    2. Four (4) maintenance staff (sharing a maximum of 130 hours per week as needed)
    3. Front gate staff (sharing 168 hours per week)

Our amenities and services include, 
    • Manned security gates    
    • Two public shower/bath houses
    • Two non-potable water wells
    • Swimming pond with public beach
    • Gravel delivery and placement (for a fee)

Bent Tree Wildlife enriches the experiences of our lives in so many ways and hunting and fishing opportunities for many different species abound in the Warsaw Area. Whitetail deer, turkey, waterfowl, squirrel, rabbitt, dove and quail are abundant around the Truman Lake and Lake of the Ozarks. Being outdoors and sharing the experiences that only nature can provide is a great way to create memories with family and friends. Won’t you join us?

A Note From Joe

​Hi, I'm Joe Simmons, the new Trustee. My background is in construction, remodeling, road maintenance and general maintenance. I've held supervision roles for the majority of those times running my own crews with responsibilities of scheduling, maintaining good relations with customers, ensuring deliverables are timely, cost and time management, as well as layout of personnel for daily jobs. I've had my own business where I not only did what I previously mentioned but also managed the books to include payroll, taxes, forecasting, budgeting, etc.

While being part of management I learned that it is essential that there is a chain of command, all models should have levels of accountability, rewards can eliminate/reduce repercussions, and these items can lead to a positive environment for our employees. This doesn't mean we reinvent the wheel, we just spin it a bit differently. Doing this will allow more issues to be addressed with less confusion when situations arise. 

I look forward to you allowing me to show you that I have the ability to help improve the guard shack and our community. Showing support and staying positive will benefit everyone! I am thankful for this opportunity, and I will do the best for Bent Tree Harbor.

Thank you, 

Joe Simmons
Trustee for Security
