Rockbridge Mill, Ozark County, Missouri; Our recent visit

Updated on February 2, 2015

Rockbridge General Store and Restaurant, at Rockbridge Trout Ranch, Rockbridge, Missouri

My wife, Nancy, my daughter, Allison, and I recently enjoyed visiting and having lunch at the restaurant at the Rockbridge Mill grounds, formally the "Rockbridge Rainbow Trout and Game Ranch." This is a popular vacation, trout-fishing and game-hunting destination in Ozark County, Missouri, in the heart of the Southern Missouri Ozarks.

Not only is this a trout-fishing resort but also the home of a private trout hatchery - along with the Mill and other amenities. With more than 3,000 acres, the resort is also a popular game-hunting destination.

Both my daughter, Allison, and I took quite a number of photos during our visit. Each of the photos in this lens was pulled from that pool of photos.

Rockbridge grew up as a new village around the mill built on the banks of Spring Creek in 1865.

This photo looks downstream from the dam and simply calls out to the trout fisherman.

The Club now in the Rockbridge Mill building had not yet opened the day we visited, so we were not able to go inside.

The dam is right behind the mill building, of course.

      It sounds like Rockbridge Mill has been wonderfully given new life as a club, I can see how this resort would be quite the draw with its beauty and that great trout fishing opportunity.
