Hunters, you can be assured of a a successful hunt at Sportsman's Lodge! After all, it's not much of a true hunting experience if you don't achieve what you came to do! Enjoy hundreds of acres of all kinds of wild fowl and game hunting. We're only 1/4 of a mile from the Squaw Creek Wildlife Refuge and right by Big Lake State Park on Big Lake! What that means is that the entire area is lush with wildlife. Snow Geese migrate through here by the thousands.
Expect An Easy Drive! If you're coming from Omaha, you only need to travel southeast an hour and a half to arrive at this sweet retreat with spectacular hunting. Des Moines is just over three hours away. When coming from Kansas City, the drive is merely an hour!
There is NO membership. Unlike many restricted hunting clubs, you can come as often as you'd like or only occasionally when you can get away from your busy schedule. Cabin rates are based on the number of people in the cabin. Save money – bring your posse!

History is all around you at The Sportsman’s Lodge Restaurant. Our restaurant is in what was originally a consolidated district no. 2 school house, built in 1916, in the town of Bigelow, MO. In 1954, Georgia Stone and her husband purchased the school house and land and turned it into a hunter’s paradise. Hunters came from far and wide to stay at the lodge. Among them were baseball players, Mickey Mantle, Roger Maris, and Hank Bauer of the New York Yankees. Also, Ted Williams, of the Boston Red Sox (whose favorite past time was hunting and fishing), came to hunt our acreage. Let’s not forget the infamous hunter, Lieutenant Colonel James “Jimmy” Doolittle. Doolittle was known for his World War II “Doolittle Raid” on Japan. Charlie Bigelow, whose family the town is named after, was part of Jesse James’ gang. Our Lodge has been resurrected to bring you “Old School Appeal with a Modern Feel!”
The Sportsman's Lodge has everything you need for a fantastic hunting experience! Enjoy all that The Sportsman’s Lodge, restaurant and bar has to offer. There will be unbelievable hunting, great food, plenty to drink, activities and events. Our guests and customers have fun playing in what was once a school house because it has the comfortable and casual appeal we all love! Beyond food and drink, the restaurant is open to the public and is a great place to meet new friends, listen to live music, play some cards, or tell tall tales. And, when you're ready to hit the sack after a full day of hunting adventures, it's only a short walk to your cabin or house. Your dogs will be excited to have you back!
