Ever wish your campsite was more private?  We currently allow only one party at a time at this premium location. You will be the only party to use the area during your stay. The view is incredible and unobstructed. Sunrises and sunsets are beautiful. Your site is on a hill top, topped with an Indian mound, topped with a tree house in a huge White Oak. Ten minutes from I-70. Many campers with a smaller tent choose to camp in the Treehouse.  The tree house is not a house until you put your tent on it.  It is a deck that is well made and has solid guard rails. The location is over 200 yards from our residence and is very private.  In spite of the remoteness, free high speed Wi-Fi with no password is available at the site. We have never had a camper tell us that they had no phone reception either. The view is amazing in ALL directions. Indians used this location heavily as evidenced by abundant stone artifacts. They were the original campers here! The best view is of the Missouri river bottoms.   I'm sure this is why the Indians used this site.  Wildlife is abundant. It is usually very quiet except for the frogs, birds, coyotes, and crickets. There is a camp faucet on site controlled by a hydrant about 150' away. Electricity for charging phones, etc. can be accessed at the barn. We have a full size, but not ADA, portable toilet at the barn.

Big Oak Treehouse was a great place to stay. Doug came and visited us and gave us a lay of the land. A word of warning though - sleeping under the stars in the treehouse platform sounds fun until the acorns drop on you in the middle of the night!

I had a wonderful time during my stay at the Big Oak Treehouse. This was a very unique experience. The entire property was beautiful. We had the opportunity to interact with their 3 horses, many chickens, the most playful cat and 2 of the friendliest dogs I’ve had the pleasure to play with. I would have liked to spend a few more days, although I believe we will try to make it back again. It was a great way to end our vacation with nice memories. I definitely recommend staying here.

Doug and Brenda’s place was the perfect stay. We got to experience “life on the farm” and were pleased to meet all of their pets, ranging from chickens to dogs to horses to cats. The treehouse was lovely and the surroundings were beautiful. Both Doug and Brenda were extremely nice and it was a pleasure staying with them. Hopefully we will back again someday!

Awesome place!
Stayed in early July. The trees all around were twinkling with fireflies, and the stars were out too- absolutely beautiful.
What a neat treehouse, and the fresh eggs were so yummy.

We had an incredible time! The kids and I slept in the tree, enjoying the cool breeze that blew through the night. It was relaxing and exciting all at the same time. Doug and Brenda are incredible folks and I can't recommend this place enough!

And I should add that as much as my son loved camping in a tree, I think he loved the chickens that much more. He was super bummed that we couldn't stay longer to help out on the farm the next morning. That's how awesome this place is.... it inspires kids to work!!
