What to Expect From a Mom and Pop Outfitter
Gracious hosting is paramount in our business! We want you to feel part of our extended family. Everyone arrives as a guest, most leave as friends and family. This is your home away from home on the White River. Our hearts and our home are open to benefit our friends. We count it a privilege & blessing to share our family and this wonderful setting with you!
Eight Cabins and Luxury Homes, well spaced out, offering plenty of privacy. No camp sites. No public RV sites. We do this for both of our benefit. We have time to help you make the most of your trip.
Our small size affords us flexibility to share our years of knowledge and experience to get you up-to-date in the Ozark outdoors. Don’t feel like you’re imposing if you need help or advice. We are here to help and we love what we do!
The Meaning of Riley’s Station
Definition of Station: the place or position in which something or someone stands or is assigned to stand or remain.
The Riley’s station in life describes a cultural position where Miles & Michelle Riley, along with their children, find themselves fundamentally opposed to high society and it’s modern status quo living. Their family has a cautious and calculated approach to participating with Social & Media Technology and allowing themselves to be lead by renegade authority.
They proclaim a rhetoric that supports honoring Almighty God and the need for loving their neighbors & families. The Rileys champion integrity, honest work and good moral character, especially good financial and sexual behavior.
The Rileys use their station in life along with their private home in Buffalo City to invite friends to experience the life of the Rileys as they outfit the White & Buffalo Rivers. The Rileys do not necessarily consider their lifestyle to be a business. We are privately supported by friends and other personal relationships.
