This campsite is a unique small hobby farm just between Nixa and Ozark Missouri. When you arrive in the narrow gravel driveway you will see the white picket fence hiding the farmhouse from 1920 and an old metal barn. As you pass the barn you will be greeted by chickens and rescue donkeys braying and hoping for a quick pet. Some friendly cats may also come say hello.

This campsite is a unique small hobby farm just between Nixa and Ozark Missouri. When you arrive in the narrow gravel driveway you will see the white picket fence hiding the farmhouse from 1920 and an old metal barn. As you pass the barn you will be greeted by chickens and rescue donkeys braying and hoping for a quick pet. Some friendly cats may also come say hello.

From here you may either park and walk or 4-wheel in your vehicle. You will enter down a wooded path, passing an original spring house from 1900. This historic spring house has rare cave crayfish from time to time. These crayfish were rumored to be found in only the purest water back in the day of this spring house.

As you continue your trek you will experience a true Missouri glade. This property sits on a limestone bed with shallow dirt. Coyotes, deer, armadillos, turkeys and rabbits frequent the property. There is also a lot of Missouri cacti! (Don't get poked while you sleep!) Osage orange trees, a small cedar glade and red buds all decorate the acreage.

One notable spot to explore is "Small Cave." This cave is the 77th known cave in Christian county Missouri. It was mapped in 1972 and currently has a flourishing cave ecosystem. Sling a hammock near the small cave and watch for the flight of bats at dusk or be super brave and sleep in the cave. (about 50 feet deep and 3 feet tall), With multiple campsite to choose from, we always suggest a fun spot is to perch up on the hillside above it next to the glory hole.

The glory hole is a small opening into the earth that is truely unique! Too small to get it and get trapped, but open enough to make you wonder what else lies beneath this property.

There are plenty of places to tuck in and not be seen on this property yet it is 2 minutes from anything you need.
