Cedar Cabin Dockley Ranch
Comfy Cabin
What a cozy, warm and cute place! The cabin was clean and we loved the firepit. The ammenities were just enough for us. The hosts are excellent communicators, and I felt comfortable being on their property. The pets were very sweet.

Great atmosphere!
Claire and Myke were incredibly hospitable to my large group! They were kind and supportive leading up to my event and upon arrival. We were needing a private space and they provided just that! The cabin and indoor-outdoor kitchen were really cute and practical. The land was beautiful and well kept. Their dogs were adorable and well behaved, we were delighted they chose to hang out with us so much! My group also adored watching the goats.

Five stars for Dockley Ranch! Claire sent detailed directions, so we wouldn't be lead astray by online maps, and I had a screenshot in case we lost internet. She and their 5 friendly pups met us at the end of the driveway. She told us the general layout of the property and showed us our options for camping spots (no one else was there that weekend). We choose the creekside spot with a tent platform and composting outhouse; this was the largest one. One of the dogs adopted us and hung around our campsite until the next day. <3 Claire stopped by our campsite to check if we were all settled in and had gotten a fire going that evening, and Myke checked on us the next evening, as well. The trail to the campsites is rather steep, and we would've packed differently, if we'd realized that. There are markers along the hiking trails, which meander along the creek, past a cave/waterfall, and up to the outdoor bar and stage. We missed their first ever music festival by one week, but we will definitely be back next year! In fact, my sons hope to make this an annual trip. We REALLY appreciated that they helped us bring our heavy items back up to the van. Something more rugged would've been nice, but our 2015 Chrysler minivan navigated it slowly but fine. My youngest son particularly enjoyed feeding the goats and helping with the chickens.

Myke and Claire were very friendly and accommodating. The space was beautiful and quiet. They have dogs that spent most of their time with us which was nice. The dogs were very friendly. There is a nice trail on their land and the drive there has great views.

Alpacas!
The Dockley Ranch was a beautiful respite on our trip across country. There was a nice place to hike in a mature, shady forest, with streams and a waterfall. The alpacas were a hoot! I would definitely stop in again.

If you are looking for a family friendly beautiful spot, this is it!! We had a blast here. Creek was super fun to explore as well! Claire and Myke go above and beyond to accommodate as well! They are great hosts and we were able to have a movie night outside with everyone on the ranch. The kids are already missing the woods and the goats!! I will highly recommend this place to family and friends! Big Thank you to Claire and Myke and everyone on the ranch who made our time in Missouri and our stay wonderful.

Perfect Escape
I could not imagine a more perfect locationg for a private and secluded camping trip. The road in gives an amazing view of the Ozard mountains and the whole time on site we had zero road noise or anything that might remind us of the city. I could go on and on, there are too many great things to name in this review from the animals to Claire and Myke’s hospitality. My partner and I absolutely will be coming again!

Our family loved tent camping on Claire and Myke's property! It was a bit of a hike back to the site but Myke helped us bring all our gear out there and the peace and seclusion of the site was well worth it. The creek right down the hill from our site was beautiful and the kids loved playing in it, and a short hike brought us over to the waterfall. Claire and Myke were gracious hosts and made sure we had everything we needed and even let our kids follow them around and help out with some of the farm chores. There were lots of ticks at the site so next time we will definitely be bringing bug spray!

Halloween Weekend at Dockley Ranch
My sister and I visited Dockley Ranch this weekend, which was filled with many surprises. The site itself was huge, with a table, electricity, and fire pit. While on the property, we were visited by 3 Alpaca, a tribe of goats, and a few chipmunks. There were also five adorably entertaining dogs, some of whom watched over our tent while we slept. There was a stage for live entertainment, which we plan to come back in the summer to see. There also was a hammock park, a bar, trails, a waterfall, walk-in tent sites, cabins, and a scenic drive to the ranch. The bathrooms were very clean and uniquely built. Pictures cannot do this place justice. Myke invited my sister and me on a Hay Ride, driving us to the church up the road with an incredible view. He told us a little about the history of their ranch and their hopes for the future. They have an incredible vision for this place! Myke and Claire and the guests in the cabin next to us had a projector set up outside to view Halloween movies with the kids and invited us over. I wish we would have taken them up on the offer because the laughter was contagious! Thank you, Clair and Myke (and the dogs), for making us feel welcome and safe!! It was a fantastic weekend, and we plan to bring others along in 2022.

Perfect Fall weekend
OMG...it was more than perfect. First off...it stormed...huge thunderstorms Friday night and alot of Saturday. The tent accommodations were great...warm bedding and very comfortable, they provide more amenities then I was aware and appreciated the back up stove when ours didn't work. Serene location with a short walk to the falls and lots of spots to take a seat and take in the beauty. The bkfst omelets and homemade bread/toast was wonderful and such a nice touch. My daughter and I played cards, put up a tarp shelter...just to see if we could do it, built a campfire and enjoyed smores. Great hosts, enjoyed visiting with them. Can't wait go back! Thank you. Enjoyed it all! Heather & Bailey

Thank you Myke and Claire for a wonderful night at Dockley Ranch. Our kids loved exploring the property and catching crawdads in the creek. The deluxe site was the perfect place to set up a tent for the kids and let the adults have the bed! We had a great time. Thank you for hospitality and sharing your slice of the Ozarks with our family!

Just amazing! We live close and just planned a last minute camping trip for a birthday and this really was perfect. Both the beds & cots were comfy, camp site was shaded, and the morning omelet delivery was top notch! Property was beautiful and we spent all day exploring, it was like being in a magic fairy tale. Claire & Myke are the nicest couple and have put a lot of thought into their property. The whole place is like one big art installation! They were happy to talk and show us around. We will be back!

We had an absolute blast there. As soon as we pull in Claire was there to greet us and gave us a tour of the cabin and kitchen plus the lay of the land. She was very friendly and more than willing to help with anything to make our stay as enjoyable as possible. Myke came up next to help with setting us up with water and the setup of everything. Both of them radiate happiness and it rubs off on you! The cabin was cute and clean as well as the kitchen and bathroom. If you are looking for seclusion and peace this is the place for you. There farm dogs as well as goats and alpaca were the icing on the cake for my kids. We will return again for sure!!

A lovely introduction to the Ozarks
Enjoyed camping at Claire & Myke’s Dockley Ranch in the Ozarks! It’s a perfect spot for two self sufficient friends or a travel loving couple who like the idea of an intimate campfire night beneath the tall majesty of black walnut trees. It has the double charm of a primitive campsite but with a few additional amenities. The tent is large and open, with a wood bed frame and a mattress with sheets; there’s a table, lamp, and a welcoming bottle of wine, even. And, the tent is raised off the ground on a solid wooden platform. Claire & Myke drop off their guests at the campsite when they arrive, but are also within walking distance, a short hike, really, if any emergencies arise. From the campsite, you can walk to a nearby waterfall. And, if you are eager to swim, there are several great spots a couple miles just outside of the Dockley ranch, accessible by vehicle. One of the best perks of the stay is the delicious omelets that are dropped off for guests in the morning!! It’s the perfect way to start the day!

Dockley Ranch hilltop cabin was the perfect getaway for this dad and his two young boys (8 and 6). We had an absolute blast spending time exploring the creek, the waterfall, and the surrounding land. The hosts were attentive, and assisted us with anything we could have needed. We highly recommend spending time with the goats if you get a chance. We can’t wait to come back very soon! Thanks again to our excellent hosts, Myke and Claire for a wonderful experience!

Wonderful stay at the Hilltop Cabin
My daughter, grandchildren and I loved our stay at Dockley Ranch Hilltop Cabin. Myke showed us around when we arrived. The cabin is cute with so many unique features to discover. The kids loved sleeping in the cool lofts. My teen slept on one side in her own area; the younger two slept on the other side. The beds were quite comfortable and the air conditioning kept it cool inside. The kids loved the unique way of climbing up to the loft. It was sort of like a playground or fort for them. We loved the sunset views and the neat little areas set up around the ranch. Claire and Myke are both friendly and very welcoming. Myke brought us a large jar of food to feed the alpacas, llama and goats. We all enjoyed interacting with all the animals as they were able to free range graze our first morning there. There are several friendly dogs on the ranch who hung out with us outside our cabin and even joined us on our hike to the creek. The kids caught tadpoles in the pond and crawdads and minnows in the creek. The waterfall is beautiful. At the suggestion of Claire and Myke we hiked down the creek which was fun and quite pretty. I enjoyed cooking and even washing dishes in the neat little outdoor kitchen area. And we all enjoyed eating at the outdoor picnic table. We had a campfire with a view in the evenings. The hammocks were enjoyed quite a bit also. My teen daughter enjoyed a pretty spot with a table and chair set up under a big shade tree where she spent several hours drawing. The shower area was neat and the hot shower was wonderful! A great place to stay and experience!

One of the nicest primitive sites
One of the nicest primitive camp sites I've ever found. The hosts are very friendly & accommodating. The property is just spectacular. The trails are clean and wide. The pictures simply don't do the creek & waterfall justice. There's multiple camp sites along the creek to choose from. There is a short hike from parking, a few hundred yards, so leave the kitchen sink at home. The hosts do offer to transport your gear if you'd like. Very peaceful & quiet. If you're lucky one of their fur babies might grace you with their company briefly.
