Living here

People come here to raise their families, start or relocate their business, or just retire because of our location, mild climate, fresh air, low cost of living, low crime rate, slow pace of life, access to hunting and fishing, and our own shopping areas. See for yourself what makes our community so special.


El Dorado Springs is surrounded by a plethora of huntinng and fishing opportunities. If you enjoy water sports, you will love that Stockton Lake, Truman, and Pomme de Terre Lakes are just a short drive away.


El Dorado Springs has beautiful outdoor spaces, top-notch medical facilities and affordable family housing, to welcome new families and businesses from across the nation.


Traditions are what make a community shine, and some of our longstanding community traditions include the El Do Picnic, Music in the Park, and an amazing Christmas parade.
