Wow! It was so beautiful and peaceful! Something about the location made it feel like I was far away from everything but at the same time very safe. And yes the sunset was beautiful!
The only difficult thing for me was that it was super windy most of the evening, which made it hard to sleep in my little tent, but it was worth it to be in such a beautiful spot!
And the turkey gobbling in the distance was perfect :)
This was an absolutely beautiful spot with blue butterflies, frogs, birds, and a refreshing swimming hole. I wish I had had more time to explore, so I will have to return one day.
Sam and Michelle were very communicative and kind. I followed them out to the campground from a nearby town. I was not expecting such a long drive on a dirt/gravel road, and when we got there, and I expressed my nervousness about it feeling more remote than expected, especially since I was a woman traveling alone and there was no cell service, Sam and Michelle took plenty of time reassuring me of the safety, not leaving until they were sure I felt comfortable.
It ended up being amazing, so peaceful under a clear night sky. I definitely recommend this spot if you’re passing through the Ozarks!
I only stayed for one night, and was there less than 24 hours, but my whole experience was wonderful. Robert was super kind and showed me around. It was very peaceful on the farm and in the forest. The best part was taking a dip in the creek just before sunset :)
