Falling Water Horse Camp is run by Mary Lawrence and Art Gibbons, Owner Glen  and Joe Garrison (deceased), on what was once a family homestead. The idea to convert the land into a park had been bubbling around in Glens mind for some time but never manifested until his brother got him interested in trail riding. Basing from what is now called “The Mansion”, the very spot where their grandfathers house once stood, the two brothers and a few friends set out to explore forgotten roads and trails remembered from their youth or discovered on old maps.  In 2005, the brothers decided to convert a portion of the homestead into a proper campground with showers, stabling facilities, and electric and water hookups. During this time weekly rides were held to scout new trails and acquaint the regulars with the surrounding area. Word spread quickly and soon folks were showing up from all over the state and even beyond! Located on the banks of Falling Water Creek, named for its hundreds of tiny waterfalls. The camp is centrally located within riding distance of several large waterfalls (Falling Water Falls, Twin Falls) and more beautiful Ozark Mountain scenery than a visitor could see if they stayed for a month. Joe Garrison was the resident horse expert. Like his brother, Joe grew up in the Ozarks where he earned renown as a horse trainer and farrier at a young age. He was in the business of raising and training Quarter Horses for over twenty-five years. Joe knew horses and horse people and he used that knowledge. From designing safe facilities for your animals to tacking on the occasional thrown shoe that might otherwise spoil a great weekend, Joe worked hard to make sure that you and your horse have the best possible camping experience as Art and Mary do today.
