On our 9 acre property is bordered by Ozark County Road 162 on the east, Ozark County Road 164 on the north, Dry Creek (a loosing stream) on the west and Brush Creek on the south. Please note that Campsites #2 & #3 are directly on the banks of Dry Creek which is a seasonal loosing stream meaning that in the spring and during periods of wet weather the creek can be running or partially running. During the summer and periods of extended drought this creek will be completely dry but offers great opportunites for rock collecting and exploring. Our campsites consist of a tractor mowed area in the shade of large Walnut, Oak and Sycamore trees with no other amenities. Set your tent, camper or RV up and enjoy the beauty of our creek side oasis. We allow fires in rock or metal fire rings as long as there are no burn bans in effect. You are welcome to gather down dead wood from our property for fires but please do not cut or damage live or standing trees. Make sure fires are controlled and supervised and always douse fires with water before leaving your camp. Please remove all trash from the area when you leave and make sure you have trash containers protected from wildlife while you are with us. We have abundent wildlife in the area including a pair of mated Bald Eagles with imature offspring. We also have all sorts of smaller critters like racoons, oppossums, armadillos, squirrels, rabbits, ground hogs, beaver, mink, otters, muskrats and more. Lots of birds too including owls, falcons, buzzards, crows and songbirds of all kinds. Larger animals are abundant as well, you may see deer, bobcats, foxes, coyotes and there have been sightings of black bears and cougars in the area from time to time. We have occasionally seen wild hogs on the property. We are located approximately 1 mile below the Highway 95 bridge crossing on Bryant Creek and you can put in a Highway 95 and float to our property although you will have to portage from the creek to your camp there is no road accessing the creek from our property at this time. Our location is close to multiple recreation and sightseeing opportunities. We are located in rural Ozark County, Missouri near the towns of Gainesville (Pop. 723) 31 miles, Ava (Pop. 2865) 29 miles, West Plains (Pop. 12,304) 37 miles. The town of Dora is a small unincorporated community located 10 miles east of our site has a small general store and restaurant. Roy's Store offers gas, food, beer, some hardware and staples, the grill serves breakfast, lunch and dinner. There is now a Dollar General in Dora as well as a US post office office, zip code 65637. We are a short drive from several scenic historic mills including (Rockbridge 7 miles, which boasts pay to fish for Trout from their hatchery, a small store, restaurant and bar, as well as trap shooting and sporting clays), (Hodgson Mill 12 miles, one of the most photographed in the Ozarks), Dawt 24 miles, which has a general store, restaurant, and canoe rental), (Zanoni 14 miles, now a private residence) . One of the newest Missouri State Parks, Bryant Creek State Park is just 7 miles west of us. This new state park offers hundereds of acres of recreational opportunites including hiking and site seeing and is currently only slightly developed. Enjoy floating and fishing for catfish, smallmouth bass, google eye and trout in one of our beautiful clear rivers including Bryant Creek which is directly accessible by a short walk from our property and is a great fishing and floating stream. The North Fork River which is a choice floating and fishing stream including a trophy trout management area about 12 miles to the east of our property.

Use common sense when accessing these campsites and all areas adjacent to our property, county roads can become impassible during flood conditions. Remember "Turn Around Do't Drowned" don't drive into flood waters. Access to these campsites is through an open field and may become soft and muddy during rainy periods. We highly recommend the use of 4 wheel drive vehicles when conditions warrant. Pulling heavy campers and RVs into these areas is not recommended when it is raining or after peiods of rains. You will be responsible for the cost of any recovery operations if you get stuck. This site can flood in wet conditions so caution should be used during periods of heavy rains and we may have to relocate your campsite to higher ground in the event of high water. Campsites 1, 2 and 3 are all subject to flooding and during periods of heavy rain. Only Campsite #4 is safe from floods. It is also the least shaded and will receive full sun in the afternoon. Our creeks and rivers provide lots of fun water activites but there are no lifeguards or on site emegency services. Cell service is very limited or non-existant at the campsite location and you will have to drive to higher location possibly several miles away to get service. We are surrounded by private property please respect others and do not tresspass on private property.

Site 2 - Dry Creek View
Great Creekside area!
This was a awesome and private spot! We had so much area to explore in the forest & a nice spot to splash around & swim in the creek. Our son & dog were were worn out each night & slept like logs. Bryan & his wife stopped by to meet us & answer any questions we had. They were so friendly & gave us tips on places to explore, visit, eat out & get supplies. Would definitely recommend for those that want to experience nature without the crowds. Thank you Bryan!
