We love this place and we think you will too. Named after the spring-fed streams that run through the property and our vision of returning the corn and soybean fields back into an oak and walnut inspired savanna, Savanna Springs is tucked into a secluded valley at the end of a dead end road just 10 minutes from I-70. The campsite sits in a crook of a stream surrounded by magnificent sycamore trees. Relax under their canopy while listening to the water babble by or go for a walk and explore the 160-acre property. Off the property there are plenty of other places to explore. Take a walk or bike on the tree canopied gravel roads that are near by. Additionally, the famous Katy trail is about 15-20 minutes away and also a great place to take a stroll or pedal away. Columbia, home of the University of Missouri, is 20 miles away and has just about anything that you can think of.

The camp site was mowed nice and the site we chose and great morning shade. There was plenty of open space to spread out. We were able to drive right up to the site but we have a truck.

Composting toilet was as expected, people need to be sure and throw in wood chips.

The host was super sweet, friendly and helpful. Lola the dog visited and was friendly, but owner did put up for the night, so that was appreciated.

Such a blessing this sweet spot with a lil swimming hole. It really was just what I needed at the end of a long drive on a warm day. Just a short way from the interstate through some rolling hills I was welcomed by the setting sun and a near full rising moon. I was greeted by this friendly, helpful and kind family and soon off to rest by the creek side in my tent after a quick dip. There were comforting sounds of owl, frogs in the water and the faint cry of a train horn. I felt so cared for and slept well here. Would recommend to anyone wanting a night to be near the trees and in a quiet place to camp under a beautiful night sky in the country.

Beautiful campsite next to a small creek. The nightly orchestra of crickets and frogs, joined by a duet of Owls and then a wonderful solo from Mr. Coyote...glorious!
The morning sun lights the treetops then walks the light to the ground and to your tent
The hosts could not be more accommodating

Wonderful hosts! Very private campsite. Night sounds include a chorus of crickets and frogs with a duet of Owls and a solo from the Coyote. Beautiful morning sunrise that walks across the field to your tent as it rises above the hilly terrain.
Hosts are most accommodating!! Great camp!
