More about Bolivar, Missouri

Bolivar Missouri, the county seat of Polk County, is located in the beautiful Missouri Ozarks. Bolivar is only 20 minutes North of Springfield Mo, the 3rd largest city in Missouri. Being only 1 hour from Branson Missouri entertainment in our area is abundant.

If the outdoors is what you crave you need to check us out. Located in the heart of the Ozarks, Bolivar is close to some of the best fishing and hunting to be found in Missouri. We are in the middle of three lakes, Lake Stockton, Pomme De Terre Lake and Truman Lake. We are less than 20 minutes from two of these lakes and only an hour from Truman Lake. The area is also home to many streams and rivers which provide for an abundance of wildlife. Our area is a turkey and deer hunters dream.

In 1983 Bolivar opened Citizens Memorial Hospital, a 52 bed hospital. It has since expanded to include a large outpatient surgical center, a dialysis clinic, a state of the art cancer center and many extended care facilities. Having medical facilities of this caliber is something few small towns can boast about.

We also have an 18 hole golf and country club as well as a 9 hole city golf course. Just recently we opened a new YMCA with an indoor Water Park.

Bolivar public and private schools are very highly rated and we are also home to Southwest Baptist University. While education and culture are very abundant in the area, we also have a very busy airport for those smaller planes.

Whether you are looking to raise a family, retire, starting a new career, or just looking for somewhere with a small town feel but with big city amenities we have what you are looking for.
