Once a cattle, corn, and soybean farm, we recently purchased the property and have the goal of regenerating and converting it to perennial trees and shrubs with animals grazing amongst them.  Learn more about this land: 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.

Camping from Indiana
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

Beautiful little campsite, private.
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!

The camp site and property were beautiful! My friends and husband and I had a wonderful time exploring the property. The creek was cool and refreshing and a great space to spend Labor Day Weekend.

Overall this was a good stay. I just needed a place to sleep and this fit that for me. Drew and Emily were very nice. Any questions I had they answered them. They had previously mowed the camping area. So, the grass was a good height for a tent. The dirt was soft enough to get my tent spikes in. There was a compost bucket within walking distance from the camping area. Which made it so I didn't have to drive somewhere outside camp to find a facility to use. There are a couple things to keep in mind. First thing is when leaving the camp, right before getting to the main road, there's a bit of a hill to get up. I had a little bit of trouble getting up it, but Emily came along and helped me work through it. Basically if you have a 2WD car, like I do, you'll need to start at the bottom of the hill and speed all the way up. Otherwise it may not make it to the top. AWD or 4WD seem to be fine getting up without speeding up it. The other thing to keep in mind is that my cellular reception came and went while at the place. But when it went out I just moved around and it eventually came back. Didn't take away from the experience of being there. Just something to keep in mind in case you may need to make a call and your reception goes out. Overall would recommend this place. It fit all of my needs the night I stayed there.

Private & Quiet
Private & QUIET!! You can hear every part of nature unfolding around you as the sun sets. Firefly’s and shooting stars lit up the night as we relaxed. There was no light pollution and we were able to capture some gorgeous images of the Milky Way with only our iPhone!! Highly recommend!!

We had a great time camping on Drew & Emily's land. The site is right next to a calm creek and a large meadow next to some woods. My dog had so much fun swimming and playing out in the open. It was a great place just to relax.

The campsite was great! It was our first time taking our dog camping and while she wasn't a fan of the cows mooing in the distance a night she had a great time exploring the creek as did we! If we're out that way again I would definitely book again.

So secluded!
What a great place to camp! Close to the interstate and no far off the rural road. There is only one site, so clothes are optional! Nice little creek to freshen up in and lots of wildlife.

This is a level site near a stream. The views were great. It is very private. We were awakened by a pack of coyotes howling sometime in the night. We also saw deer that bounced away as soon as we saw them. The toilet is a bucket with a seat under a tree. We would definitely stay again.

Drew was very responsive when I needed a place to stay on short notice. He helped guide me to the right spot when I got a little lost. I was car camping in my Prius and it rained while I was there so I didn’t get to really experience the location fully, but it was a pretty spot in a valley. No facilities, so come prepared. The driveway is steep in one spot and you need to be careful if you’re driving a vehicle with low clearance. Drew and Emily recommended a great breakfast spot in the morning.

This was a lovely spot! Beautiful views and kind hosts. We enjoyed the little swimming hole quite a bit. If we had more time, I could see sitting a chair down in the creek and enjoying the cool water and a cold beer!

Camping in the Stars 💫
This place is lovely! I wish I had more time to frolic but sadly got in a little late. Super easy to find and had wonderful night life noises! Drew and Emily greeted me when I pulled up and I immediately knew they were good people. Traveling from Virginia to Colorado made their site a perfect middle point for my trek. OH ALSO!!! I was able to see the !!!BIGGEST!!! shooting star I have ever seen!!! Plus many more. This spot is absolutely fantastic and I will be visiting again! ❤️

We Loved This Place
Savanna Springs was a great spot to camp. Definitely gets an ‘A’ grade for easy access yet seemed quite remote. Lots of Mother Nature to take in. Going for a dip in the stream was the perfect way to cool down in the 95 degree heat. Lots of shade. Lots of spots to hang a hammock or two.

We had the best time at Drew and Emily’s. The site was beautiful, flat, and large. Our kids and dogs had a great time in the creek and swimming hole, and we cannot speak enough about how amazing Drew and Emily’s hospitality was! What wonderful memories.

Fell asleep to the sound of the creek and owls and the most lightning bugs I’ve seen in my life - a beautiful little piece of rural Missouri just off the interstate, but far enough away from it to briefly forget :)
