It is a level, smooth, fine gravel driveway to a large shop building adjacent to our home. We live in a quiet, rural area only a few miles from downtown Springfield. Springfield is home to several tourist attractions. Bass Pro Shops started in a Brown Derby Liquor Store in Springfield, MO. The "Mother" store is located approximately 12.5 miles from Milligans Retreat. Milligans Retreat is located approximately 6 miles from Camping World and two truck stops.

    We did not meet the hosts during our stay. I do not think they were home. We appreciated being able to stay even though they were not there. The parking was back-in driveway in a quiet neighborhood. Electric available and a water hose to top up water tanks. Cute herd of goats next door. Close enough to Springfield for easy shopping and touring.

    We really enjoyed our time here. It was hot so it was nice to have access to electricity to run the AC. A quiet place to stay with no difficulty getting our 41’ fifth wheel parked. You do have to back in but that wasn’t a problem. We’d stay there again! Loved the ability to stay more than one night.

    This place is quiet and close to the interstate. perfect location to rest ones road weary head. Electric and water availability was very much appreciated with yesterday’s HOT temperatures. Thank you so very much for your hospitality. This is certainly a place we would return to.

    Jerry was a wonderful host! Super friendly and informative. We would definitely stay again when in the area. The space was quiet and level and we loved watching the goats next door and visiting with his dog, Rusty.
