Excellent camping facilities. (Tent, RV and Cabin)
The campground buses you to and from the theme park, so you don’t have to worry about parking and the long walk to and from the park! The swimming pool and recreational areas were a plus too! The cabins were very nice to stay in also! Our family had a lot of fun here for many years!
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.
They stuck us in the most narrow, difficult spot they could have, and made us pay 3 nights for a rally when we only needed 2, and then probably sold our spot after we left early. The reservation showed we had a 30 ft camper and we had the back end hanging off a 6 foot drop- I have photos- and if our friends had walked out the back door where their room is they would have surely been injured. Sunday morning at 10 am I was told I could not use the shower house as she had just bleached it. I thought good, it's clean, but no, she insisted I walk about 1/4 miled to the end of the campground to the other shower house. Yes the place was clean and nice, but so disappointed I'll never go back and if someone asks I will not recommend. Another camper said he specifically asked for a long spot and got similar. And there were lots of spots OPEN while we were there.
Mill Creek is like a resort! There’s sand volleyball, a basketball court, a beach with a designated swim area and, thoughtfully, life jackets were available to borrow.
Most of the sites are lakeside. I snagged Site 12 which was perfect for me! However, there are several stairs down from the paved pad to the picnic area, so be aware if you have little ones or mobility issues. As others have mentioned the sites have picnic benches a fire ring and a lantern pole. Hooks up were easy and close. I especially liked the water hook up because it had the traditional valve handle and not the pump handle. It’s the little things.
The bathrooms were spotless and looked newly remodeled. One of them was also accessible.The drive to the campground might be tricky for larger rigs as there is a sharp curve and steep grade coming into the park.
This park was quiet, clean and offered a night sky that provided a shooting star!! I would love to come back here again!
Big M Marina and campground is absolutely awesome! Nestled snug on the Missouri Arkansas border is a gem of a campground. Large grassy sites some most with electricity and water, and some with sewer. Sites are paved and pretty level. Great play area for kids. Well kept bathrooms and showers. Marina has a great restaurant that you will not be leaving hungry. Nice marina store. Boat rentals as well as slips. The swim area was very clean and accessible even though it was flooded. Only inconvenience were the roads in. Be prewar warned. It is a nail biter. All in all definitely a 9 out of 10!
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.
It’s a nice place. They keep their park neat and clean. There’s two pool, hiking trails, a cafe, a bark park, and a fire pit. The downsides are the amount of rules this park has (Literally 2 pages full) and the camp sites are pretty much on top of each other.
The campground is split by highway 86 with the east side being all paved sites for RVs. It also has the marina. The west side is more wooded and has several sites for tent camping. The sites down by the beach and boat launch are non electric. As mentioned in the other review, the traffic noise is noticeable as is the boat launch traffic, but if you can ignore that this is a great place to relax and enjoy the water.
Ranger Review Big M Campground Table Rock Lake
As with most campgrounds this summer Big M was flooded. It didn’t detract from the beauty and fun this place has to offer. This is a Core run campground that sits nestled in the beautiful Ozarks/Arkansas border. It’s a little tricky getting there. Lot of curves and turns. A real nail biter! This campground has large grassy full hookup sites. The bath houses are clean and easy to get to. Anything you would want to do. Hiking, kayaking, swim beach, boating. Some of the best fishing around! Nice marina with a restaurant that you won’t leave hungry! Swim beach was flooded, but we used it anyway. Truest the gem of the Ozarks!
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.
This campground was well kept, with clean bathrooms, a playground and a great swim beach. Choose your site wisely though, i reserved a site unseen and ended up only having enough space for my popup and parked at the bathrooms. Otherwise very shady and great picnic tables
This is one of the best state parks I’ve been to. Amazingly clean and well maintained. Bathrooms were spotless with awesome water pressure and NO smell. No hand soap in bathroom so bring it with or some wet wipes. Swimming area, beach, volleyball, park, boat ramp. Every site is paved and beautiful. Every site has an amazing view of Table Rock Lake and MOST sites are literally on the water. We walked (10 steps) down to the water every day and swam right behind our site. All sites have water and electric but no full hookups. If you have a small boat, jet skies, or kayaks, you can pull them right up to the shore of your site. Mixture of back in and pull through sites and some are double sites for really big rigs or if you’re camping with friends. We stayed on site 16 and it was perfect but there are so many great sites that it’s hard to find a bad one. We stayed for 5 nights at $21 per night. The sites book up fast so reserve well ahead of time. 10 minutes to grocery store and gas. 20 minutes to Walmart. No camp store so if you need ice or firewood, get it in town. Tons to do within a 30 minute drive if you don’t want to spend every day on the water. Only negative is the missing hand soap, they need more garbage cans around the campground and we had some flies so had to break out the pinesol!! P.S. every time the staff member came by on his golf cart, he stopped to give our dogs treats…score!!
