... at Lambert's Cafe in Sikeston, MO. Again Judy--you should have been there. John did another amazing back up job in the parking lot there. He went in between several buses and larger RV's to put The Big Muf into a slot perfectly. I know you are not surprised.
Now about Lambert's: It was established in 1942 (two years before I was born, so really, it hasn't been there long at all...wink, wink). They are famous for their "throwed" ...
... Then the land changed! We passed through Alley Spring in the Ozark National Scenic Riverway and hit a 15% grade wall for half a mile. This hill was repeated numerous times in the next 30 miles. The saving grace was the beauty of the hardwood forests and the relatively light traffic along the ...
Today was a travel day and since we all arrived by mid-morning or so, it also meant most of the day off before heading into the week! We're on a lot next to a water treatment center with a baseball diamond at one end and apparently the library is within walking distance. We had a really nice day…it’s been an incredibly rough week for various reasons and today was very much needed. After we parked (we’re fairly balanced ...

TravelPod Member ReviewsWilderness Lodge Lesterville
This area of Missouri has much going for it. Why is this the best Lodge in the Area? Good people, good facilities and excellent food - That's why. We were in hilltop cabin # 18. Really enjoyed the large screened-in porch and fireplace. The facility was very well manicured and maintained. With access to the Black River thru their sister site Riversedge, we enjoyed the lazy days of fall without all the people pressure (and noise) of high season.
Why not 5 Stars? Everywhere has opportunity for improvement - including Wilderness lodge.
For the money, you will NOT have a better experience in the area.
