About Big Oak Treehouse
Your site is a hill top, topped with an Indian mound, topped with a tree house in a huge White Oak. Ten minutes from I-70. We are offering our "Big Oak Tree-house" as a campsite for two. It's not a house, just a deck, but it is well made and has solid guard rails. The location is about 600 feet from our residence and so is relatively private compared to most campsites. Larger parties can camp if they are willing to pitch under the Big Oak. The view is amazing in ALL directions. Indians used this location heavily as evidenced by abundant stone artifacts. They were the original campers here! The best view is of the Missouri river bottoms. I'm sure this is why the Indians used this site. Wildlife is abundant. It is very quiet except for the frogs, birds, coyotes, etc. There is a hydrant for water about 150' away. Electricity for charging phones, etc. can be accessed at the barn. We have a full size, but not ADA, portable toilet at the barn. You will be the ONLY group to use the site during your stay.

The vibe at Big Oak Treehouse
If you stayed here and have some insider info for us, let us know!
This review is long overdue!
First off, Doug and Brenda have a very special place, here, and not just the treehouse, though the treehouse is pretty amazing on its own! Their property is lovely and peaceful, and you get the real sense that they care deeply about the horses they are looking after. They are both kind and generous, and were more than helpful when it came to any questions or suggestions for the area.
The treehouse itself is wonderful. We only had one night in it, and decided we simply had to pitch our little 2 person tent up on the platform. What an awesome experience. I'd say that if you're comfortable with heights and have a small enough tent, you absolutely must do it. There is the option to pitch beneath the impressive tree, however, and the space around the trunk with the table and fire barrel is quite nice. Doug has a camp sink set up near the table, which is convenient, and there's an outhouse just a short walk away at the barn.
We'd stay here again in a heartbeat, and cannot recommend it highly enough. It's a truly unique site in a really beautiful area that more people need to see! Thanks Doug and Brenda (and Radar!) for everything!
