Camping, Float Trips on the Black River, Hiking, Biking and more!

What could be more fun than being in the great outdoors with all of your girlfriends?  This is truly the outdoor recreation capital of Missouri.  Go floating on the crystal clear Black River.  Share memories and roast marshmallows around a campfire or tell ghost stories under a starry sky like you used to.  Go horseback riding or hiking and biking on hundreds of miles of trails. For the adventurous, go hunting or fishing with your own personal guide.  Our many campgrounds and float businesses in the Arcadia Valley Region and Black River area invite you to plan your bachelorette or girl's getaway in the great outdoors! 

Explore Elephant Rocks State Park, Johnson's Shut-ins, Taum Sauk Mountain State Park, the Mark Twain National Forest, the Ozark Trail and many other natural wonders, and you'll see why this region is one of Missouri's favorite outdoor vacation destinations.  Visit this link to see beautiful photos and information on our Missouri State Parks.  Learn about our hiking trails and the Ozark Trail here.

Black River Missouri Campgrounds

We have a variety of campgrounds for you to choose from.  Enjoy canoeing, rafting, tubing, horseback riding, trail riding and even live music and concerts by the river and under the stars at our beautiful Ozarks Campgrounds.  Our campground owners invite you and your girlfriends for that special getaway or bachelorette party in the great outdoors!

Black River Float Trips

Enjoy Missouri canoeing at its best, or choose to take a relaxing float trip in rafts, tubes or kayaks. Black River floating is a pleasure for veteran and beginner floaters alike, offering an ever changing outdoor experience spring through fall. The river is clear and beautiful as it gently moves through dense wooded forests and green meadows, winding past tall cliff walls dotted with caves and fern greenery.  So whether you prefer rafting, tubing, canoeing or kayaking, our Black River outfitters will be happy to plan the perfect float trip for your group of girlfriends.

Horseback Riding and Trail Rides

Whether you and your friends own horses and are searching for a place to go where you can bring your horses and ride on thousands of acres of property, or, are inexperienced cowgirls needing an experienced guide to show you the ropes on seasoned trail horses, we have the places for you to ride.  Go on a week-long trailride, or come for a day of horseback riding fun.

Hunting and Fishing for the Adventurous!

We highly recommend a hunting or fishing getaway for the ladies.  Afterall, men often get away to hunt and fish with friends because it gives them time to bond, renew friendships and enjoy the outdoors.  YOU CAN TOO!  The diverse terrain of the St. Francois Mountains and Ozark Valleys are full of oak and hickory forests, flowing rivers, and numerous lakes and streams. This habitat diversity provides homes for a multitude of wildlife and fish.  Why not hire your own personal experienced guide and give it a try?

We look forward to having all of you on your funfilled Girlfriend's Getaway!
