We look forward to visiting every Summer. Staff are always wonderful. On the river for a relaxing float is the best way to spend a Saturday. Sleeping in a huge teepee at night with all of the boys we bring is a lot of fun.
Such a beautiful place to camp & float the river. It' some of my favorite places to be. The staff is amazing and treats everyone like family.
Living waters is constantly updating their operation to keep guests safe and comfortable.
We have floated for the past 6 years with our family and friends. They have been amazing to float with! Always polite, patient and professional. We always buy the box lunches and the entire experience is wonderful! Our 6 children always want to float with them!!
Ans amazing place to do a canoe trip! Family friendly and a great section of the river. We keep going back!
Victory Mission of Springfield, Missouri, once again thanks Living Water's for their hospitality. Every year for about the last 7 years The forgotten men at Victory Mission and the Cook's Kettle Culinary Training School, were invited to enjoy God's beautiful creation,on the river, camping in "Eagle Nests" ( 2 man outdoor, screened in, breathable dry sleep shelters). There are also OTHER camping options available. The campground there at Living waters is pristine atmosphere with picnic tables, shower/flush toilets, a small store surrounded by Christian staff and many volunteers that believe in the vision there. The trip down the CLEAN Niangua river is a beautiful time for the folks to interact, splash, play and enjoy nature one on one. They are driven up on school buses to a beautiful place of launch. Then they can float/paddle at their leisure down to the campground which is downstream on the Niangua. A truly A+++++ adventure.
Our family has been involved with Living Waters for many years as it has grown and changed. Our children have learned many skills, and had great times on the river as well as camping. The river is spring-fed, beautiful, and relaxing. Living Waters Canoe Camp has great accommodations, with tee-pees, eagle's nests (covered structures with protection from mosquitoes and a comfortable flat surface to sleep on), and plenty of space for tent camping. There are showers and there is also a trading post if you want to purchase snacks or forgotten necessities. A good deal of planning and preparation goes into the float trips as well as into the space at the camp site. We have really enjoyed this place so much throughout the years. If you're looking for a family friendly float trip with camping that is affordable, Living Waters is the place. Come to float and camp, and maybe you can be like our family, you can stay around to serve as well.
Amazing place!! Beautiful float trip and camping, so peaceful and quiet. A great place to get back in touch with all Gods amazing creation
Friendly staff, knew our names & what camp we were in. Nice trading post with reasonable pricing & bathhouse. We stayed in an Eagle's Nest, better than a tent & no need to pack one. Canoe trip was fantastic, cool water, helpful guides, & ability to go at your own pace. A couple times it felt like we were the only ones on the river. We'll be back!
Great experience and people. I think everyone should spend a weekend.
I've been taking my college group from church canoeing with Living Waters for the last several years. It's a great experience! The river is beautiful, the staff so pleasant and helpful. The students love this trip and look forward to it every year. We have stayed in the cabins at Windermere in the past, but this year we are excited to try out the new camp ground at Living Waters. I highly recommend this canoe ministry!
The Big Niangua has a hidden jewel on the lower section. For the last 16 years, Church Groups, Scouts and Families have enjoyed this river away from the crazy thong. The staff is friendly and accommodating. The camp is stunning and if you have never slept in treehouses and tipis... well
