“Terrible, just terrible”
Reviewed May 15, 2012

Sure I would go back to Blue Springs Ranch, but I would have to pay for 2 floats…one for me and one for the guy with the gun to my head. The “cabins” were gross and felt like you were sleeping in a shed. I’ve been on a lot of floats and this one was by far the shortest. I don’t think it’s anywhere near 5 miles.

STAY AWAY…go to any of the other places.

We were travelling for sites in Stanton MO, but the best part of the trip was at BSR. We fished, rode horses, bbq'd, played cards, sat around the camp fire, watched movies, walked, and able to just let ourselves relax and forget everything-except where we were at. It was rustic (country & quiet), but had amenities (taste of the city...store, swimming pools, TV). The beds were amazing, too...slept good all three nights! The AC/Heater (yes, we used both) worked great! The staff was soo friendly!

I am hoping to get my siblings and their families to join my family next year at BSR to kick back and relax.

Great place to take family for weekend of lodging, camping, and canoeing. Very clean resort. Employees very polite. Resort includes canoeing on Meramac River, horseback riding, swimming pool, and family entertainment. Our cabin (1B) was on the lower level and included AC, 3 bedrooms, full kitchen, and living room. No shower (need to use shower house, but has private rooms). Quiet time begins at 11:00pm, so if you're a loud party group, this place may not be for you. May be a little pricey, but so nice we thought it was worth it. We came with a large group and we all already made reservations to stay next year!
