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.

Beautiful spot! Beautiful little spot to spend the night. Just a few minutes off route 70, prefect for stopping off on our way to CO. We staid by the little stream. Perfect spot to pitch a tent, have a fire and enjoy the beautiful views. We heard owls and coyotes and saw a bald eagle, beautiful sunrise. Drew and Emily were super helpful and got back to us right away. If we ever pass through again we would definitely stay again!

First off, Drew and Emily provided excellent communication to me. I camped with some friends, and they let us have some people hang out who were not campers. They have a beautiful piece of serenity conveniently located only 10 minutes off of I-70. Upon arrival, Emily showed me the lay of the land. At night, the stars are so clear! Looking forward to visiting again. Thanks Drew and Emily!!!

Perfect spot for camping with the dogs! It was very quiet & private with water spot for the dogs to play and cool off. Only 2O minutes from Columbia. We could not have been more pleased with the setting. Two camp sites to choose from, one shady and one in the sun. Both were close to the small creek.

Drinking coffee while the sun rises and burns the fog off the fields, stunning. I can't recommend this spot enough. Thanks Drew!

This campsite was my ideal Hipcamp experience! Drew & Emily have carved out an amazing space on their farm for nature seekers and weary travelers alike.

From the beautiful and long winding roads that led there, to the meandering nature trails, to the idyllic set up next to a serene babbling spring, I was enchanted by it all!

This secluded but easily accessible site was my favorite on my nearly 2 month camping tour of the US. I was lucky enough to arrive just before sunset and it was a stunner from my vantage point. And after taking that in and getting to meet the family (optional) the nearly full moon illuminated the site nestled amoungst old growth trees so well that I didn’t even need my headlamp getting too and from the site or to set up my tent.

I could hear the deer walk down to drink water from the stream just past me, so close that I could hear their hooves hit rock. The coyotes in the distance howled to initiate the start of the hunt as the sunset, and I could hear them occasionally call out to each other as I lay in my sleeping bag as I drifted off to sleep, along with a cacophony of owls and frogs, singing out as though just for me.

It was early September and still warm enough to sleep without my tarp on, so I had just a sheer net of fabric separating me from all of this, and my only complaint is that I didn’t allow more than one night to stay here.

It was a last minute booking and they reached out to me quickly, which was really appreciated since I had been on the road for a while, and I’ve saved the listing to go back again as soon as time allows.

I especially appreciated the compost toilet that looked out upon an open field, far enough away from the site to allow privacy if I was staying with other people, but close enough that it wasn’t an inconvenience to get to in the middle of the night. Watching the sunrise on my throne as the morning mist rolled through I felt like a newly minted lord of a tiny but excellent kingdom.

Thanks so much Drew & Emily for sharing your land with me. What a great experience!

We had a great time staying here. We arrived later than expected, but Drew still helped us to find our campsite. The site was beautiful and well kept, with places to hang out hammocks. Great place to stay the night!
