Address is 902 S Quarry Rd, Willard, MO 65781

However, if you put that address in Google maps it will lead you astray a bit.

Coming from Springfield you'll take Hwy 160 headed toward Willard. You'll turn RIGHT on FR 94, which is across from the animal hospital.

Take an immediate LEFT and follow that access road.

You'll turn RIGHT at the quarry entrance and follow the drive to the main office building which will be on your right. You can see it in the picture below. There's a small paved lot at the front and a larger gravel lot just behind the building.

Troubleshooting: if you follow Google's instructions it will tell you to take the second right, which is actually the truck exit and you're not allowed to enter there (plenty of signage posted there). If anyone misses the turn, a little further down is a stoplight with a McDonalds and a gas station that makes for an easy turning around spot.
