Need a safe, quiet escape that's not too far from Interstate 70? The outdated google map doesn't show it, but all sites have gravel to and through them. Backing is only required for site 3 and there is plenty of room for corrections if needed. 

This area provides a Missouri Ozark border region "Front Porch Experience".     There are no artificial lights, so views of the sky are very good.  There are country sounds like birds, coyotes, horses, frogs, and occasionally a vehicle on the gravel road. 

In addition to camping, you can walk a trail or canopied gravel road to stretch your legs.  Feeling adventurous? One mile to the north, there is a old iron bridge that is closed to vehicle traffic. It has a plank floor with some missing planks.  Locals fish from it. It is a great place to take artsy pictures.  You can walk, bike, or ride your horse on our county road. The WORLD famous Katy Trail is a biking/walking trail that was re-purposed from a railway. It is about a 15-20 minute drive away.  A local chef ( 8 miles away) makes THE BEST carry out pizza on Friday and Saturday nights.  About 20 minutes away in Boonville with many dining option, and Columbia of course has everything.  There is fishing available from  our own private river access at the Petite Saline creek. The stream is quiet, slow backwater whose level depends on the Missouri River level.  Access is not ideal, but determined canoers and kayakers will enjoy the rich biological diversity including jumping Silver Carp.

Doug was very generous and accomodating for our youth group! He taught the girls about astronomy, took them on a cave excursion and allowed them to help feed the horses. We had an amazing time. Would highly recommend!

We loved it there! So pretty, especially at night with all the stars. The horses are beautiful & so happy, the one-eyed horse was our favorite. Great place to run & our dog loved it as well! Thank you.

Beautiful location, friendly host and staff, beautiful horses. Easy roads to get in and out on. My only disappointment was RV spots are close together (maybe double the distance you get at a normal campground) and the portable toilet was pretty gross.

The site was clean and well kept. The hosts are super friendly but not overly in your business. We had a great time, and the kids loved seeing the animals. Highly recommend you stay here!
