Canoeing Missouri's Big Piney River...
Nestled in the Ozark Mountains, the unspoiled natural landscape and the cool waters of the Big Piney River has something for everyone. Whether getting away for a day of relaxation or spending time exploring the region, it's certainly worth the trip!
We offer easy access to the river and floaters enjoy good conditions year-round. Spend the night in one of our rustic cabins or in our quiet and scenic campground.
Fishing enthusiasts can cast their lines along the river's shoreline and into its deep pools, while others will prefer to explore, swim and picnic. The spring-fed Big Piney River continues to delight everyone who launches a boat, casts a line or just sits along the peaceful shoreline.
Wilderness Ridge Resort offers some of the finest river floating in the Midwest. The Big Piney's springs supply millions of gallons of water to the river each day. The cool, clear stream is an ideal home for smallmouth bass and goggle-eye, and our scenic grounds are the perfect setting for floating, fishings, cabins, camping, hiking and other outdoor pursuits.
The Big Piney is known for its idyllic, family-oriented, float trips in canoes, rafts, kayaks and tubes. Young and old alike will enjoy exploring the natural wonders of the river on one of our many float trips. Click here for a summary of the float trips we offer.
Whether you come to float, fish or just plain relax Wilderness Ridge Resort will whet your appetite to return again and again. Call or email today for more information and reservations.
