ALL EVENTS ARE LIMITED TO REGISTERED GUESTS ONLY! No tickets will be sold to concerts except during July and Labor Day. Our facility is privately owned. Unregistered/unpaid guests are not allowed access to our campground and facilities. If you’re camping at another location please abide by the posted boundary signs while on horseback including the river crossing. Access to trails is available without entering our facility.
Firewood, hay, feed, stalls and stall bedding are not included in the admission price. Our electrical hookups allow 30-amp service per trailer. If your trailer uses more than 30 amps you may not be able to run some electrical appliances safely! Please keep this in mind when deciding what to bring with you. You will also require an adapter for your electrical cord to reduce the size of the plug down to a 110 volt outlet. Some sites have a trailer outlet, but most have a 110 volt outlet.

We have approximately a 300 mile trail system. The trails cover private, state and federal lands. Our trails consist mostly of old logging roads through some of the most scenic country in the beautiful Missouri Ozarks. They will take riders across the Jack’s Fork and Current Rivers which are known throughout the country as two of the most pristine and scenic rivers in the United States. They are well cut, but the terrain is rocky and very hilly; most horses will require shoes. Even the most inexperienced rider can ride the trails without danger of injury.
What You Need To Provide
You will need to bring your own sleeping facility, horse, tack, feed, hay and bedding. We will have feed, bedding and hay available to purchase upon arrival.
AS OF NOVEMBER 1, 2009, EVERY GUEST WILL BE REQUIRED TO USE DEHYDRATED PELLET BEDDING. YOU MAY BRING THIS TYPE BEDDING FROM HOME OR PURCHASE IT ON SITE. ALL OTHER TYPES OF BEDDING (straw, wood shavings, sawdust, etc.) ARE NOT ALLOWED!
We suggest 2-3 bags of pellets per stall for the week, depending on how deep you like your stall bedded.
It is advisable to bring an electric adapter to convert your trailer plug to a 110 outlet plug, an extension cord and water hose (minimum 100’ each), a water hose splitter (Y splitter) to share water access, raincoat, rubber boots, blankets, warm clothing, tennis shoes, a hay bag, water bucket, feed bucket, stall cleaning tools, a wheelbarrow and a camera.
