This campground has a shuttle to Silver Dollar City. The site we had was small, barely enough room to park your car and tent. But the campground and bathrooms/showers were exceptionally clean. We were here off season so we had it to ourselves pretty much. So it was perfect. They do rent cabins which looked very nice. We would camp here again but not during the busy season.
The campground and the shower house/bathrooms were very nice and clean. The site we had was on a hill so I wouldn’t pick that one again.Most are flat. They have a yurt that you can rent and a deck with a heavy duty tent over it close to the water. If you want to walk nearby and get in the water it is rocky so bring your water shoes! There is a marina store nearby if you need something. We would camp here again.
We tent camped at the Buffalo Point Campground in loop B for a few days. These sites are the closest to the river and the swimming area. The sites are pretty close together, but there were a few that had more room (next time). We rented from Wild Bills and floated to Rush. It was gorgeous! We saw tons of wildlife and were the only ones on the river on a Thursday morning. The sites being close together and the lack of a super flat area for our tent is the reason for the 4 star. Plus the bathrooms were a little dirty, but they had great pressure and hot water. Don’t miss out on the Indian Rockhouse trail and the concession restaurant. Get the broasted chicken breast and jojo potatoes. Trust me. Plus a piece of peanut butter pie!
This is an incredible place to camp. Your camp is where the White River and Buffalo rivers merge. If you enjoy fishing this has some of the best trout and bass fishing in the area. The resort has cabins, full hookup sites , tent sites, pool and play area for the kids. If you like to just float or fish they can help you with what you need. There is also boat rentals , fishing guides, just plain relaxing. The resort is family owned,
What it's like….
The campground has sites available for camper/RVs, tents, and also has six platform tents that you can rent to sleep at. The platform tents have electricity available in the tents, but thats about it. The platform tents are pretty big and they do have cots, chairs, tables, inflatable mattresses, etc.. available to rent if you want to up your platform tent experience. Each site has a fire ring and picnic table, and there is access to a dump station for the RVs and campers. They have an onsite general store that has about everything you could want from sandwiches to spark plugs you should be able to find what you need. There are also some disc golf holes set up, a basketball goal, and a "hammock city" area in the middle of the primitive campsites. The bathrooms are pretty magical with access to 25 cent/min showers and the campground even has WIFI, which isn't a reason to go camping, but when you don't have any cell service it comes in pretty handy.
What to do….
The campground is located about 10 miles north of the Boxley Valley in Arkansas which has some of the best hiking and canoeing you will find in the US. If you like to canoe or kayak and you haven't been on the Buffalo National River, you are truly missing out on one of the most scenic rivers out there. There are also ton's of hiking trails many taking you to the various waterfalls in the region. If you are stumped on which trails to go on my two go-to hikes in the area are the "Lost Valley Trail" and the "Whittaker Point (Hawks Bill Crag) Trail". Both are pretty accessible to all and will not disappoint.
What I thought….
I've been to the area before so I knew the hiking / waterfall chasing would be amazing, and it was, but I had never heard about the campground before. I was more than pleased with campground. Everyone we ran into who worked there was extremely helpful and I could not have been more impressed by the cleanliness of the park and its amenities. I was especially impressed by by the bathrooms at the grounds and that the campgrounds had WIFI. The only reason I gave this campground a 4/5 and not 5/5 was how close it was to the highway. Being in the middle of know-where helped keep the traffic down at night, but if there was anyone passing you were going to hear it. Regardless, I would 100% go back and probably do so pretty soon and take the whole family.
We camped there for the first time this week and loved it! It is mostly quiet and very clean. The Kings River was beautiful and while we didn’t catch a lot off the banks fishermen in the boats caught plenty. The waterfront sites were close together but the one back from the water were roomy. The swim Area has no beach but is roped off. This campground is close to a lot of fun things to do!
It was nice and cool too with the wind off the water. The Dockside Pub was a great place to eat too!
Went here for a Jeep Jamboree and had a great time. There are several areas to tent camp and have great amenities as well. Toilets, showers, food, etc. The hosts are very hospitable and treat you great!
We chose this campground due to the shuttle that ran from the campground to Silver Dollar City, as that was our main reason for this trip. We had our 4 and 6 year old great grandkids with us.
It has a nice little playground that the kids enjoyed. Staff was friendly and helpful. I advised them we would be arriving later than planned and they had our rental packet waiting for us. Sites are a little tight but we managed with our 31 ft 5th wheel. We will stay here again.
We have always enjoyed camping here. It's a little less primitive than we like. Our only gripe here is that the sites are close together so it feels like you have no privacy. Almost all of the sites are shady and there are lots of cool hikes and exploring to do. Check out the ampitheater. The swimming is always perfect here!
This is a very primitive campground, but it's one of our favorites! We can almost always find a spot to camp and it's super easy to pull our trailer into every spot there. It's a horse camp and there are many spots with shade and some with none. There are two vault bathrooms, no tables provided, and not trash. We love the peacefulness of this place and will continue coming back.
My husband, our 5 year old boy, and I camped for three days this past week. We got a campsite right on the banks of the lake. The view was outstanding and the campsites were shady with lots of trees. They provide a picnic table, trash hook, and fire pit. It was really quiet there and there are plenty of spots that are spacious and not too close together. Also, the vault toilets on the campground are surprisingly not stinky! We enjoyed our stay and will be back!
We camp here a couple of times a year. The grounds are beautiful and well maintained. The RV sites have nicely paved and level pads. You get everything you could need, including a very clean shower house. Every site if not on the water, has a nice view and it is pet friendly.
The camp is directly off of the river. For those how love to kayak, swim, fish, of just be in nature this is the place to be. There are a few tent locations that are located away from the main area if you what to be away from it all. There are cabins as well. The camp offers a plethora of boat options to enjoy the river, and they also provide shuttle services for the 8 and 5 mile floats. If you love to hike, there are some amazing hiking trails with gorges views, water crossings, and even waterfalls. They also have an amazing bathroom area complete with showers for after your day of adventure. The cleanliness rivals most home bathrooms. They also have a stocked store on site with nearly anything you would want or need. The best part of this place are the owners. They truly care for the campers/floaters.
Great place to stay when visiting Branson. Located on Lake Tanneycomo, in the cool water trout fishing portion of the lake. The water temp keeps this park cool during the hotter days of the summer.
The location is very convenient for slipping around the back roads to access the fun of Brandon without having to drive the busy main road.
