In 2012, Mother Nature’s Riverfront Retreat and Family Recreation Park opened. They are located on the Big Niangua River approximately two miles float, down river, from the Whistle Bridge to our beautiful beach, then it’s another three miles to the final take-out spot at the end of the property for a total of 5 miles or 7 miles from the Tunnel Dam spillway. You can enjoy the beach for camping, float trips, swimming, sunbathing, and fishing. Also offered is an adequate take-out spot/water access where you can park your vehicle while you are canoeing. They have a nice and clean shower house. RV/Camper hookups, laundry facilities, fire wood, tee shirts and ice are also offered there.
