Are you difficult to find? Not at all, though we ask that you follow the directions found on this site and on your reservation confirmation.

Yes, canoes and a jon boat await you at the river. Bring your own bikes. Or we have a few for guests use.
Can we fish, swim, explore?
Sure, the Gasconade River is a noted small mouth bass stream. Bring your fishing gear and swimming trunks. Cliffy Creek Natural Area is our neighbor, offering an excellent hike to the natural bridge. The creek offers some great splashing for kids. We will direct you.
