Missouri River, Gavin's Point Dam & Other Paddlers Resources

We are blessed to live along the banks of the federally designated Missouri National Recreation River, (MNRR) an actual National Park.

We’re located in a 59-mile stretch of river that, although controlled by a hydroelectric dam, maintains flowage and shorelines noted for being similar to the old Missouri in its native and original state. Sandbars are plentiful and wildlife abounds.

Our vacation home was once the headquarters of a kayak guide service. The channel has since moved, but it’s still a convenient rest area or layover for paddlers to stop on jaunts between Yankton and downriver to Myron Grove (aka ‘Highline’) landing and Clay County Park (just outside vermillion.)
