Back to Nature
Escape from the pressures of everyday life in a luxury cabin or a tree house at River of Life Farm, the Fly Fishing Resort, “Home of Treehouse Cabins,” where the river never freezes at Dora.
Myron McKee, who owns the resort with his wife, says, “The spring can just explode in February” if there are two or three days above 50 degrees. A nature lover can enjoy the day fishing, floating (float trips are offered year-round), or just relaxing in nature, then indulge in a dinner of catfish, deep fried green beans, or sweet potato fries at Roy’s Store at Dora.
After dinner, head back to the resort for a stargazing experience. The sky is among the darkest in the Ozarks, according to Dr. Steve House, an astronomer and professor at Lindenwood University. “It defines beauty,” he says. “It’s the black zone of Missouri.”
