The community lies on Missouri Route EE, just west of U.S. Route 65, approximately seven miles south-southwest of Buffalo. The Dallas-Polk county line is two miles west along Route EE. The community is at an elevation of 1207 feet and Greasy Creek, a tributary of the Niangua River, drains the area to the east of Route 65.
