Middle of Nowhere Ranch – Campground

Our name says it all! Seclusion is the key. With miles of wooded trails you can spend hours without seeing the same terrain. Many locations have been groomed for stopovers, which could include a meal break and a rest stop.

We have large turn-around for horse trailers and our full hook-up RV sites feature 30 and 50 amp connections as well as 110 outlets. Outdoor horse wash racks are available and they are serviced by a continuous hot water heater! Our lodges and full-hook up RV sites are co-located and limited camping is permitted within the RV sites/lodge area so groups traveling together who need varied overnight accommodations may still be co-located!

For our campers, a common-use shower house offers a washer/dryer, kitchen sink, gas grill (BBQ) and a microwave. The shower house is serviced by an on-demand hot water heater so we will always have hot water! Overnight guests may also enjoy our numerous stocked ponds for fishing and depending upon the time of the year, other activities such as mushroom hunting, nut gathering, and wild berry picking. Hunting is also offered during certain times of the year. Rates vary depending upon the season selected.

Primitive camping is allowed throughout the area. Free firewood is provided at all sites. We have a limited amount of fire rings provided at no extra charge. The horse and hiking trails have been "GPS'd" and we can provide them to you when you arrive.

Our lodges are fully equipped to include lines, pots and pans, washer/dryer, satellite TV and have central heat and AC. Our smallest lodge is two bedrooms with two twin beds each, a large living room with two sofa sleepers and an adjacent kitchen with full-size appliances. Other lodges are up to 1,800 square feet and accommodate up to 14 people in beds or sofa sleepers.

Middle of Nowhere Ranch also offers equestrian facilties such as riding trails and cross-country courses. Training and events occur throughout the year. A limited number of indoor horse stalls at a daily fee and temporary stalls can be made available with advance notice for a nominal fee. Long-term boarding is also available.

Our facility is located in north-central Missouri, off Route 139 & E, approximately 50 miles west of Kirksville.
