The Steelville area is considered the float capital of Missouri and folks flock to the clear streams to enjoy their beauty and have a good time on the water. There is much to do off the water as well: hiking trails, caves, music venues, wineries, specialized shopping and local activities.

MSV sits at the 63 mile mark on the Meramec River and about 3 miles above where the Huzzah joins the Meramec. The river makes a 90 degree bend turning from east to south on the property. There is 6/10s of a mile of river frontage, a big gravel bar and 50 acres that consist of open bottom ground and timbered hills. Currently there is the lodge and 14 seasonally rented camp sites.
