Kayaking, swimming, and fishing were awesome!
Had a blast kayaking, swimming, and fishing!
We stayed here for 1 night as we were passing through the area. The campground managers are super friendly and had lots of good information on the area. They took us to look at sites first to see which one we would like. He then helped us park. Sites are pull thru with full hook ups including robust cable TV channels and screaming fast wifi. Also used the laundry room, which was clean and reasonably priced.
There is a beautiful area to swim in the cleat water of the buffalo river. The bathrooms are clean with hot showers, campsites were well maintained and we enjoyed using the paved loop for our skateboards and scooters. We also enjoyed viewing some wildlife while we were there. Saw a bobcat in the wild for the first time ever! Directly across from where the put caonoes in there is a cold water spring, very pretty and refreshing!
Campsite are spread out enough that you aren’t in top of other campers. We ended up with a triple site by ourselves because friends had an emergency and couldn’t make it. You could see Bull Shoals Lake through the trees. Bathrooms clean. The water hookup was quite a distance from the site and had to use three hoses to make it reach.
This place is for primitive camping only. There are bathrooms with running toilets but no showers although they have showers at the store at the top of the hill. As you drive down this long steep hill it takes you down to the buffalo river. No camping RV’s allowed and make sure your breaks work. We go every September for a full week. It’s relaxing and the river is right there. Crisp clean water and the sound is wonderful to destress from life. I definitely recommend this campground.
We booked 6 sites of horse camp for Labor Day weekend back in July. They had plenty of time to take care of sites. We got there and the grass was high on all sites. One of the guys with us brought a battery operated weed eater and started to weed eat our area when a park ranger stopped and said we weren’t allowed to weed eat only they are allowed to mow. We asked if they would mow sites and they said NO. The people right down from us on other horse site had to keep horses tied to trailer because weeds were that high you couldn’t get to horse post. One of had brought our RV with horses and were told we weren’t allowed to bring RV even though when we booked it online, it gave us the option to book RV with horses. We usually come to horse camp 5-6 times a year, but think this might be our last time going. Seems they are trying to close down horse camp.. we had reservations on Memorial Day and when we got there it was full of tent campers with NO HORSES but they were allowed to stay there. This place is turning into a joke. You pay $20 a night to get nothing but harassed by the park rangers!!
Ozark Highlands Trail Head. Picnic bench, fire ring, and pit toilet available. Not recommending for camping.
Long scenic drive in on gravel road, used to be a pay campground is now disperse camping, sites may have picnic table and lantern hook, do have picnic table, firepits w grill, bathrooms were closed and not in use. Small campground on river, beautiful, there were mostly tent capers there, some hiked in and out following trail on multi-day hike. Pack it in Pack it out, no services at all.

Stopped while doing the Scenic 7 road tour for fall colors, well worth the drive down the windy gravel road, best for tents, can hike in as part of a multi-day hike, this is one of many campground for that activity. Not recommended for large campers or motor homes. Have cash to pay fee host does not give change.
Star gazing park, meaning park does not light up during night, if they do they are yellow lights not bright but there, flush toilets and a pavilion, fire pits.
They give discount for senior and disabled america beautiful pass.
Me and my friends chose this campground very last minute. Its a loose dirt road on the way in and out so prepare! If you are wanting private campgrounds with trees, this is not your spot. The camp sites are far enough distance from eachother though. There’s a cool trail that leads to the river. We enjoyed it over all. :)
