Campground and Day-Use Area Rules
I’m glad I found this campground. Quiet and clean. Several waterfalls in the area to explore. Drive-up, fire-ring, hook, bench, pit toilet. Hammocks are allowed if you choose.
It’s a pleasant, small primitive camping loop with a short walk to the falls. In peak season, it can get crowded, with cars lining the loop, people leaving food and trash around, making noise, and the toilets will smell foul. Be kind to people and nature. If you’re coming from or going to the east - and you’re here for the falls - take a drive by Falling Water Creek Falls on Upper Falling Water Road (dirt road). When water is flowing it’s beautiful. In between these two spots you must stop for a scenic hike at Pedestal Rocks.
Neighbors aren’t too close, and right smack dab in the middle of days of hiking! Great location unless there is a deluge, and you might get flooded out or stranded until the water goes down.
The place is beautiful. I’ve been there several times but won’t be going back. There was human waste on the ground in the middle of a campsite and dirty baby diapers thrown around even tho there are plenty of garbage cans. Not camping in filth.
Haw creek falls is a small campground that has only primitive campsites. But the scenery is worth it! The site is located near the haw creek water fall and the Ozark highlands trail runs thru it. there are 9 sites available at first come first served basis only.
