Gainesville Missouri local area information...

Gainesville Missouri is the County Seat of Ozark County in South Central Missouri.

Tourists, Vacationers, Hunters, Fishermen, Hikers, Horseback Riders, Cave Explorers and many many other people have found our area to be very conducive to what may be called "Easy-Livin'". The Four Seasons are very distinct in the Ozarks and about the time you start thinking of Autumn, the Tree Leaves of our many Hills and Hollers start turning the beautiful Reds, Yellows, Browns, and Golds of Gorgeous Fall Colors. So beautiful that you think you need to take constant photos to preserve memories to look at while you are in the next season of change in the Ozarks. The Ozarks is a Recreational Wonderland for your full time enjoyment. Hunting and Fishing is just fabulous here.....and you will soon find out that the many good cooks of our area have secret receipes to fix their wild game and fish that you will gorge yourselves on. Thank goodness that there are good receipes to follow out there in book form, that you can purchase to cook like they do....well try to cook like they do. One of those good cooks, who could cook like no one could believe, was my grandma Murrill Willhoit....who used to own Willhoit's Cafe and Sport Shop in Theodosia. My grandma's is gone now but her "Good Cookin" can still be found in her Receipes.

Gainesville Missouri is 38 miles West of West Plains, Mo.; 24 miles North of Mountain Home Arkansas; 85 miles South of Bass Pro Shop; and 43 miles East of Branson Mo..........................and is located between two of the Best Fishing Lakes in the Country......Bull Shoals Lake and Northfork Lake. The North Fork River and Bryant Creek are our fishing and floating streams around here along with numerous other spring fed creeks.

The Weather is great most of the time and our rainfall is around 46 inches per year, with the average temperature around 73 degrees approximately.

There are many Festivals, Crafts Events, and Celebrations in and around the area ......some are Hobby and Crafts related with ole time music and foods, while others are just music events alone. Home made ice cream get togethers and barbqueing and the such are also very common events. Gainesville is a good place to try out your gardening skills too. We have Vegetable and Fruit markets, of locally grown foods, that are usually set up on our town square a certain day of the week for your enjoyment.

Folks around Gainesville will thank you for being Conservation minded when you settle here. Everyone needs to take care of our great environment here, of course.

Caney Mountain Wildlife Area is a Conservation Area located here in Gainesville that is made up of 8,600 acres of the Wildest, most beautiful Ozarks scenery you can imagine......with Camping areas, designated Hunting areas, and Wildlife Refuge areas. You can drive through most of it, get out and do a "Walk-a-bout", then go again. Horseback riding trails are there also.

If you don't like really nice people, a great climate, 4 really enjoyable and distinct seasons, down home cookin', fabulous fishing and hunting, and peaceful easy livin'.....then this place probably isn't for you. If you would rather here sirens, horn honking, and yelling people instead of Whippoorwills and Hoot Owls talkin' in the evenings.....then again, this place is probably not for you. The Ozarks.....the Real Ozarks.....offers you a very special lifestyle with a bunch of Really Special People who live, love, work, and worship here. If you would like to be a part of a Community like that......well come on! What are you waiting for?
