I am one of the numerous people who were sold an illegal membership......... no membership, no money back. The ranch told me it was a legitimate membership and that everything would be taken care of....... that was over a year ago. Not sure what the outcome will be, but I don't expect to ever get my money back or the membership I paid for. Unfortunate for all the other members that this took place........ and for all us that were taken.

You want action on this, YOU need to be the squeaky wheel. Call the prosecutor and gripe!

perhaps the officials are responding to the numerous complaints against careless atv operators. The trails that were once quietly used by wildlife are now polluted with motorized movement that have destroyed and continue to threaten the beauty and peace that once was associated with C9R.

c9r isnt federal land so the fbi cant do crap about the trails,,,if you want to know who has ruined cloud 9 ranch and all the trails is the local membership owners who live mainly in west plains area have been able to let their freinds and family on the ranch and tear every trail up,,,last summer wlking down a nice trail had to jump out of the way because of 4 kids each on a 4-wheeler flying around a corner like a race track,,,so after seeing them later that day,,they were loading all those 4-wheelers onto a couple trailers with their parents across from lonesome pine in front of that school house,,,and when they left the ranch the gate house told me they were from town and always come down to ride for the day,,,just come down with freinds and tear everything up then leave,,,then in west plains after talking with diffrent people it is known that if you have a 4-wheeler just find a freind with a membership and go ride ride ride and tear up everything cuz you can,,,

Brad Dressel had a web site called cloud9ranch.net He shut it down because Kadye and Connie were causing so much trouble on there. Anytime money starts to get talked about everyone is told to shut up and be quite. They don't want the members to know where the money is going.

About time..Rosie, it took a long time but they did get a couple of them like we knew they would! If they would go back just a few more years they could really recoup and the charges that could be filed would be awesome! Love and miss you sooo much!

Diane, we have a lot of fun there. There is a lot of bickering and fighting that goes on. We just don't hang out or pay attention to those people. Anytime you have a club with 3000+ members/owners your going to have that. But if you like riding atv trails, this place is well worth it. Memberships right now are $500 one time + 400 and some change a year maintainence fees. That gets you 30 days of free camping and 6000+ acres of trail riding. Chose to get involved with all the BS and try to change it or just do like I do, come ride, drink and have a good time.

hi all I would like to say how much i loved cloud 9 my parents bought a membership there way way back in the 70s. I basically grew up there every summer, i ran all over that ranch doing all the activity's. Then as i grew up i met my first boyfriend there. I lived in st louis and he happened to live about 30 min away from me. our parents would run us back and forth till we were old enough to drive. Of course we would always see each other every summer at cloud 9. We were 15 when we met at cloud 9. and in 1984 we decided to get married and of course we wanted to get married where we met and fell in love so at the age of 23 we got married down at lane springs falls on the ranch we had our reception at the teen center. It was absolutely beautiful.Of course back then they didnt have the church built. But i loved being married in front of the falls. I think of the ranch often now. We are no 53 yrs old and i have just battled lung cancer and had a portion of my lung removed. I close my eyes and see tim and i sitting at the lookout at hill country and seeing all those beautiful trees and feel the wind blowing in my face and hair, and thinking this is heaven. and tasting the trout out of wilder springs to this day its the best fish i ever had.I miss standing and waiting to go horsebackriding hoping i would get the horse of my choice.But it didnt matter really because i got to ride without a guide i felt so free and i loved the horses so much. We would go to the teen center and hang out and play music and play pinball ride our motorcycles all over the ranch or do the things the ranch had planned it was all so much fun. now at 53 our bodies are failing us earlier then we thought. so appreciate what you got there take it all in remember it well, because can never go back i have no way in to see it again i can never afford to be a member. so i live on my memories and pictures. Im just saying be gratful for what you got take many pictures because you will want the memories from this ranch. It was a piece of heaven for my husband and I. god bless you all. and god bless cloud 9 ranch thank you for my happy memories of most my childhood and my wedding day.

I live and own property along the boarder of Cloud 9. For the last few years all you have is a bunch of drunks raising hell all hours of the night. More than a few times riders have ended up on our property, mostly at night, leaving a trail of beer cans. I am all for having a good time but when your out tearing it up at three and four in the morning it becomes a nuisance. Especially when the exhaust has been gutted on their atv/utv.

omg,,,people,,,lets settle down,,,if it wasnt for cloud 9 ranch,,,caulfield would still be a field,,,west plains would still have a small walmart,,,hwy 160 would be a hwy with no stripe down the middle,,,hwy 101going into mnt home would still have a ferry crossing instead of a bridge,,,gainsville wouldnt even dream of having a subway/gas station,,,and the population in this whole area would be down by half,,,cloud 9 has put whole area from the bootheel of missouri to branson missouri on the map,,,for over 40yrs has braught money to this whole area,,,gave alot of people 30yr jobs,,,kept some country bumpkin cattle farmer from clearing 6000 acres for beef production,,,and all some of you idiots can do is complain about 4-wheelers and atvs,,,my GOD people,,,people on vacation who drink beer and ride atvs and 4-wheelers at cloud 9 isnt the problem,,,you all should be thankfull to cloud 9 and buy a membership to support this place,,,
