My Aunt and I took an overnight trip to Big Springs State Park in Van Buren, Missouri. Just as the other reviews have said, it is beautiful! The grounds were kept very clean and the spring was easily accessible. It's easy to take a lot of pictures because the colors of the water from the spring are so vibrant. I couldn't find much information regarding the lodge and cabins that are within the State Park, so I will talk about them here. The lodge serves "home cooked" breakfast, lunch and dinner. Very reasonably priced and the food was good. They have several cabins for rent by the night (2 night minimum for weekends). Our cabin was VERY clean. They provide linens (sheets and towels) only, so you would need to bring your own kitchen utensils/pots & pans if you plan on cooking there, plus your bath soaps, etc. You walked up a couple of steps inside the cabin to a loft kitchen area. They have the kitchen equipped with a microwave, coffee pot, toaster, stove and refrigerator (no freezer) and eating area. There are a few different sized cabins available. Our cabin had a bedroom with a full size bed, plus a full size murphy bed in the living room (pulled out from under the kitchen). The bathroom was small but adequate. It had a small shower, toilet and a sink. There was a living area with table and 2 chairs, two living room chairs and a large fireplace. The cabin had a window air conditioner as well as a ceiling fan in the bedroom and living room. There was a screened-in front porch and a fire pit and picnic table outside. These cabins are secluded in the woods, it was very quiet and peaceful. We found the cabin to be much more comfortable than a hotel room and less expensive. Search Big Springs Lodge and Cabins to find out more information. This was a perfect getaway.
