The 600 acres which was lost after Terry’s death is now back available. The complex has all 850 acres for ranch trails plus trails available in the adjoining Mark Twain National Forest. We are now known as North Fork River Ranch. Terry was a good friend of mine. The new owner and I were both very aware of not only his vision for the property, but also his management style which was the key to his success. Terry fully realized that he was, first and foremost, in the hospitality business.
He firmly believed that if you offered well kept trails, clean and level campsites, clean and spacious restrooms, a comfortable lodge and made sure that each person knew that they were appreciated and welcome, then success was eminent. These beliefs have become our guidelines of operation and will continue to dictate the direction of the ranch. In addition to the facilities which were part of the ranch, we are currently planning on adding a 200’ x
130’ arena adjacent to the current campgrounds. This will enable us to host some events and clinics without infringing upon the current campgrounds. I would love to have you join us at North Fork River Ranch for some “Horse Play on the River” Check us out at www. nfrranch.com or on Facebook at North Fork River Ranch. You can also call us at 417- 469-2267.
