This resort can handle a lot of people with a six bedroom house and six cabooses. We used them all and had a wonderful week. The families that stayed in the cabooses were excited to do something as unique as that experience. The house is beautifully renovated and extremely roomy and comfortable. Having a large private dock with lots of...

We enjoyed our stay, crashed there each night after SDC and the water park. Only suggestion would be a clothes line either outside or in. Kids were delighted by the bunks and the stairs to the loft. We will stay here again next time we visit.

We just spent a girls weekend at this resort with our children. 3 adults and 5 children and had a blast. The concept is so great and you go into it knowing you are staying in a caboose so you know it is old and small but that's what a caboose is. We had enough space for our group.....note our...

I'll try to make this reasonably short! We booked our trip here when our Texas camping plans got rained out. We knew it would still rain a little there, but we liked that we would have a nice indoor space, like cabin camping, so it was the best of both worlds. The cabooses are very cool. They are very authentic,...

Caboose's come fully furnished but don't plan on cooking a big meal on the Stove since it is only a 3 burner and super small. We crammed 5 people and two dogs inside one of these for two days but since you rarely are inside it wasn't a big deal. I was concerned about the height inside since I am...

Yes, I agree with some of the other reviews. BUT, we came unprepared on many levels. These are things you need to be aware of: I would register during the day. The grounds are more difficult to manuever at night because of less exterior lighting. The website states you will need your own towels, but you will also need to...

We loved staying here in the cabooses! Had a great time sitting on the deck, playing on the dock, resting in the hammocks and enjoying the lake views. Four of us went for a restful, relaxing girl's week-end and had so much fun. The deck was my favorite - with wooden rocking chairs, picnic tables, grills, and of course can't...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Welcome, everyone, to the Caboose Junction Resort. We invite you to stay with us and take a ride into the past, experiencing a true piece of American history. We are one of the most distinctive resorts in the Ozarks, home to some of the most scenic mountains, lake and rivers, and exciting family entertainment in the U.S. Gracing our home in the Interior Highlands are six authentic Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe Railway (ATSF) cabooses, some of the last great remnants of our country’s proud railroad heritage. For nearly a half-century, these cabooses roamed the rails throughout Kansas, Colorado, Missouri and many other parts of the Southwest and West. After taking one final journey from Wichita, Kan. to Lampe, Mo., the cabooses were retired and converted into charming resort units.Today, families and couples from all across the U.S. come to relax in these nostalgic, resort cabooses and experience all that the area has to offer. ... more   less
