The sights are great. A girl showed the kids around the milking building and let them visit the cows. The museum has a lot of tractors. The old mill is really neat with lots of jams and candy to purchase. Be sure and visit the keeter center and try the ice cream.

This is always a wonderful experience. The food is so plentiful and so good and the young people just give you hopes for the future. They are so impressive. It's a great place to take company and everyone is always amazed by the food and the atmosphere.

This is a very pretty campus and worth the drive just for the views. We also did the museum which has a small fee, but contains many ozark-related artifacts including the original car from the Beverly Hillbillies, lots of music-related memorabilia, and much others. This is set up as an "old school" museum, which is to say lots and lots... More

Our family of 13 (kids and adults) were in Branson for a week and made an afternoon trip to see this campus. WOW. The greenhouse, fruitcake factory, old mill, dairy farm, etc were impressive. My nieces and nephews (oldest is 12 years old) were already discussing this place for the college education :)

We visited College of the Ozarks after we heard about it from a couple at our resort. Our lunch at the restaurant in Keeter Center was very good, especially the fried catfish that my husband had. The Keeter center and Lodge was quite impressive. I also enjoyed seeing the stained glass windows in the chapel and the Lookout Point. The... More

This is the neatest college. Everyone is super friendly and the sights are amazing. Found out about it on the Ride the Ducks tour. The next day we drove over and went to museum and toured the grounds. Students are very friendly. Love it there.

A visit to this campus was absolutely refreshing .... The students were respectful and genuinely happy to be there and offer help if needed. A beautiful walk to the chapel and to the Mill and the dairy area was gorgeous.

We visited the Ralph Foster museum recently. I hadn't been there since I was a kid and some still looked familiar. One of the best items they have in my opinion is the actual Beverly Hillbillies car (although my son had no clue about the show). They have a lot of old guns, Indian artifacts, primitive tools, etc. A great... More
