Whether you are looking for some quiet solitude or a party weekend on the water you will find both at Blue Springs Ranch Campground. Nestled in a wooded surrounding outside of Bourbon, Mo. this expanding campground is a perfect get away. The staff is always kind and helpful. Check out their website for full details. Worth the drive from anywhere!

Our friends spent a wonderful weekend at Blue Springs Ranch, renting on the Log Cabin which sleeps 12 - it is right on the river with a nice secluded area from the campgrounds around us. We loved the big back porch looking over the river and we had access to the sandbar and river itself right from our doorstep. This...

This crazy family got a camper! And for her maiden voyage we thought Blue Springs Ranch would be perfect. RV store right up the road and a river to keep our kids entertained. Thing got a little complicated when we showed up and there was no forest or wooded area, but the staff all tried their best to accommodate the...

My daughter had passed her State Boards and we decided to do a canoe trip. I looked up some places on the web and came across Blue Springs Ranch. I am glad we chose this place. We rented cabin 13 and I have no regrets. The Cabins have everything you need. BSR also offers tent, camper and RV parking. Trail...

Blue Springs Resort sits in a beautiful, idyllic setting along the banks of the nationally renowned Meramec River. Fashioned much like a state park, Blue Springs offers splendid facilities, activities and programs, with lots of room to raom. For the outdoorsman at heart, Blue Springs offers canoeing, kayaking, rafting, tubing, trail rides, zip-lining and much more. At the end of...

Do not waste your time or money on this place, unlevel trailer sites, trash dumpsters a drive away, not much shade, long walk to river from full hookup sites, flies will carry you away, not much of a pool or playground for the kids. Not very well kept for the price they charge and then if you book a float...

I have never stayed in a cabin at a campground before so I wasn't sure what to expect. All they had available when I booked was a 2 bedroom cabin. It came equipped with a full sized refrigerator, stove, fireplace and microwave. It had dishes, I didn't look for pots or pans. You were required to wash your own dishes...

Been coming here for years and this was the first time my trip was terrible! What is the point of having rules if they aren't enforced?? 11pm no music or noise rule means nothing if people aren't actually removed when they don't comply after being asked multiple times. Not only is it a very expensive place to park my camper,...

We have been going to Blue Springs for well over 15 years. A large group of us stay in the cabins and float each August. The last many years we have been at the Rock Castle. The cabins are kept clean. The last two years we have also gone in October for their Halloween activities ... FUN!!!

We had a great time, grandson loves coming here. Unfortunately the last night a huge storm ruined our evening. But the camp grounds are nice. We also sat at the springs, the pool was great, we all enjoyed that. There is a very nice convenient store for whatever you may need.

“Lots of rustic cabins available, but the Log House, right on the river is my favorite.”
  • The Log Cabin is an old, original log cabin. Charming.
