Any time I get out around the Ft. Leonard Wood area, which isn't often, I try and stop by this Bass Pro. This is the original and definitely worth a visit if you're a fan! It has grown by leaps and bounds since we lived in MO back in the late 80's. They're now building a conservation part which will... More

We go to Bass Pro at least once a year. Not for the shopping but the experience. the fish, turtles, stuffed animals and now the NRA and Archery museums (they are free) are awesome. They also have some fast food and one restaurant that i am aware of. We have eaten at it before but not this trip (I think... More

We loved the animal decor and the live exhibits - ducks, fish, alligators, and turtles as well as all the taxidermy displays. They have a nice restaurant we did not visit (middle of the afternoon). Very educational - take your camera!

After staying at the Days Inn across the street, I visited the Bass Pro Shop in Springfield, where the business started in the early 1970s. This site, the flagship store for the company, is the largest outfitter of its kind in the United States and I'd imagine in North America. The founder is originally from Springfield and started selling hand... More

Although we've been to BP before several times, there's always something new. This time it was the NRA sponsored firearms museum. All I can say is "WoW!" It is awesome and overpowering. I'd say you would either have to spend a lot of time or go more than once to fully appreciate it all. We both loved it. Of course,... More

We honestly can't get enough of this store! Their selection and prices are super competitive, not to mention the stores scenery can't be beat!! My son 13 year old loves looking through the gun museum. My mission is to visit as many BP stores as we can! Super excited to check out their new Memphis Pyramid store this summer!!

If you are going fishing, hunting, shooting, just about anything this is the place. Catch it kill it gut it cook it eat it and then camp in comfort. If the walking dead ever arrive and you are in this store you will be safe for ever.

If you love the outdoors and shopping, you should be able to find something of interest in this store. The decor and design of the store is fun and the staff are pretty friendly. Depending on day and time, you can usually find plenty of parking and there is food available if you plan to be there during mealtime. Kids... More

The atmosphere of this store is phenomenal! I cannot think of one other business establishment that is as beautifully created as this place. From the NRA museum to the stuffed game, this is a wonderful place for all ages!
