Nestled on one of the best lakes in Missouri is this clean, family campground. Fairly level sites with quite a few lake sites. Nice boat ramp and swim area. Clean shower houses well located around the camping areas. Only complaint I could find with this location is trying to book an open spot and no full hook up. Loved this camp ground and will come back again.
June of 2018 has been our third time to camp at Cape Fair. We love camping right near the water because we can fish, swim, kayak, canoe, boat, etc. here. Wild life and jumping fish are all apart of the experience. The camp grounds are well kept and the bathrooms are very nice and clean!!! We love cooking on their fire pits. Plus, this campground is close to Silver Dollar City (about 1/2 hr drive) and other points of interest!
we were down at cape fair this last weekend. Very clean. The staff at the docks were very easy to deal with and friendly. we rented at pontoon boat for the day with friends. The bathrooms and showers were extremely clean. Very impressed
Camping is good, boat access is not great, couple courtesey docks, but very narrow. This is the upper end where the James River comes into tablerock lake. Fishing is usually great.
Camped here last minute to a walk up site. We have a 19' RV. Spots are paved and level, raised above the lake. Gorgeous views and water accessible from our spot. Friendly park attendants and campers! Beach swimming area. Did not use shower/toilet facilities. Water and electric hookups were convenient and picnic table and fire pit were a few steps down from our elevated spot.
This parks facilities are superb! Right up on the waterfront, with grassy/sand beach access. Bird watching is great, saw many herons walk by me whole reading a good book. Fishermen pulled theit boats right up to their sites for easy access. Marina is relatively close by.
