This was the perfect place for a quiet weekend getaway. Not having to worry about noisy neighbors or crowded campgrounds was wonderful. The directions that Ross gave were spot on, which was good because as he said cell signal was spotty. But, having no cell service was a great way to literally unplug and rleax.

Our favorite place to camp. Very secluded and nothing short of a perfect campsite in our opinion. Have camped here a few times and definitely plan on going back!

Great camp site. We had 35+ acres of land just to ourselves. My friend who's travelling the country in an RV visited Missouri and we camped here for 2 nights. Its a very basic campsite with just a fire ring but that's all we needed since we had a RV. Be sure to bring alot of bugspray as there was a lot of spiders 🕷 😬. We didnt encounter any snakes even on our almost 1 mile hike which is marked eith blue tape and easy to navigate. Over-all I'd highly recommend this site and Ross was very prompt in getting back to me. Oh and we stared at a beautiful stary night sky from the roof of the RV

Great site! Be prepared for ticks in the warmer months, but overall we couldn’t ask for more!

Open clearing nestled in the Ozarks, just as described. Got great directions and informative reminders well in advance. Site included a fireside bench, picnic table, and two wandering paths well marked out w blue flags on the trees. If you want immersion and natural quiet, this is a great spot for it.

My family and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at crooked creek ranch. Ross made it easy to find his place with his directions and property map despite Google maps mislabeling his road as county road 402 instead of 4020 like it should be. The property feels isolated, which is exactly what we wanted. It is fairly close to Johnson's shut ins and some great current river floating. Nights were peaceful and dark, with just the animal songs to put you to sleep. My wife said this was one of her favorite campgrounds we have stayed at because of the solitude.

Very secluded and great for a family getaway. Be prepared for ticks. Kids loved the trails on the property and we would definitely love to come back sometime.
