Laura Ingalls Wilder Historic Home
All nine manuscripts for the famous "Little House" books were penned right here on Rocky Ridge Farm. Laura’s home is carefully preserved just as she left it. In the museum next door, visitors can see Pa’s fiddle, handwritten manuscripts for "Little House" books, keepsakes of the Ingalls and Wilder families, tools and articles, and needlework made by Laura.
7C's winery is just a short but beautiful drive from the campground. Here is the winery's mission statement: to produce quality Missouri estate wines in the Ozark Mountain area from American and hybrid grape varieties to introduce consumers to the ancient art of making mead or wine from honey; to provide an enjoyable and educational wine experience without being pretentious; to provide a family friendly environment with a ‘day in the country’ theme. We will be partnering with the winery and doing some events at the campground! Look for those special events and don't miss out!
Missouri Sports Hall of Fame
Visitors can sample sporting activities by specialized interactive computer stations. The facility includes a statue garden and theater seating that serves as the video presentation area and illustrates outstanding moments in Missouri sports including professional, collegiate and high school levels.
