Big Creek Trail Ride

Hartshorn, Missouri

Admin: Kathy King

A family run campground in the Missouri Ozarks, Big Creek offers miles and miles of trails along Big Creek and the Current River. During the organized rides you can enjoy three meals a day of delicious, home-cooked food. The facilities are great with electric and water hookups at each site and they also offer some rooms for rent. Stalls are covered with sawdust provided. There is a store/tack shop on site and farrier service available during the organized rides. For those without LQ trailers, they have two bath houses, as well as laundry facilities. Organized rides leave camp at 9 AM and 3 PM with groups for a slow, medium or fast ride, or you can venture out on your own. You can also camp any time when there are no organized rides.
