Hiking & Biking Trails

Embrace the warmer weather with a nice hike or freeing bike ride with the kids. We have many trails laid out over our 600 acres of land. Cruise around the alpaca ranch, cattle farms, or our young vineyard.

Horseback Riding

Love horses but never had an opportunity to ride? That’s okay! We offer riding lessons for an additional fee. Just inquire about a lesson when you make your reservation, or you may ask at check-in at the guest services building.

Baby Alpaca/Deer Bottle Feeding

Our baby animals are a hit with the young guests. Guests of all ages can help feed our baby alpaca or white-tailed deer. Please note that feedings are seasonal as our babies do grow up and out of feeding. To inquire about feeding these cuties on your next visit, contact our guest services team.

On the Water

During the Summer and late Spring, Morrell Ranch’s Swan Lake is a great place to cool down. We offer kayaks, canoes, and paddle boards to for your water excursion.


Believe it or not, our lakes are Missouri’s best kept fishing spot! Fish from the shore or grab a kayak and spend the day with your pole in the water.

Look Fun? Book now and save on your stay!
