The campground is primarily wooded with most sites offering a sweeping view of the water and surrounding foothills of the Ozark Mountains.
Whether on water or land, Aunts Creek campground offers visitors countless recreational activities. Picnicking, swimming, scuba diving, boating, fishing, hiking and wildlife viewing are all popular pastimes at the park. While the lake boasts an abundance of crappie, catfish, and bluegill, Table Rock is most famous for bass, and is acclaimed as one of the best bass fishing lakes in this hemisphere. Table Rock Lakeshore Trail, about two miles long, runs from the Dewey Short Visitor Center to the Table Rock State Park Marina. During the spring hikers will see dogwood, serviceberry and redbud trees in bloom as well as many wildflower species. During the autumn months, visitors are treated to nature's colorful fall foliage. The trail also offers beautiful views of Table Rock Lake.

Table Rock Lake is a beautiful, clear body of water surrounded by a forest of oak and hickory trees. The scenic waters wind down through the valleys and hollows of the Ozark Mountains, from Branson, Missouri to Eureka Springs, Arkansas.
More than five million visitors a year take advantage of this recreational oasis. Originally built for flood control, the Table Rock Dam has created a lake that boasts 779 miles of shoreline for the public to enjoy.
The Dewey Short Visitors Center is located at the south end of Table Rock Dam. It offers three educational films focused on the history of the dam, the story of Lewis and Clark and the history of eagles and their endangerment in the state of Missouri.
The visitor center also contains exhibits on the natural history of the area. Visitors arriving by boat can take advantage of the courtesy dock.

This is an Army Corp campground and as such it is right on the water. Camped here with family in August. Restroom and bath house facilities are a bit small for the campgrounds size but we found them to be reasonably clean during our stay. Has it’s own beach area but no life guards. You’ll also want to pack water shoes as the beach is gravel. Table Rock Lake is beautiful. Only minor gripe is the water station near our site put out barely a trickle of water with the spigot open. Price for amenities is hard to beat.
We stay at this campground every year but there are pros and cons.
What we like: lots of shade, some campsites have built in benches and railings, swim area is decent and we can always find a site
Things we dont like: campground is on the side of a hill, very little grass with lots of rocks, bathhouse is always busy, a few of the campsites are behind the parking pad (camper blocks view)
All things considered, we like Aunt's Creek and always have a good time.
Love love the trees and The Rustic feel of this Campground. The attendants are very helpful and extremely friendly. Lake Table Rock is beautiful.
