Greenville Recreation Area is located on the northern end of Wappapello Lake, on the St. Francis River. The spacious campground provides entertainment like biking/hiking for families and friends who choose to visit. The playground is great for keeping the younger children occupied.
Every year, the park puts on the Black Powder Rendezvous and the Old Greenville Days events to celebrate history of the early 1900's. Live music and food are part of the festivities.

Greenville boasts a one-mile historical trail to explore. The lake is home to some of Missouri's most sought after game fish, including largemouth bass, crappie, bluegill, white bass and channel catfish.
Special events are put on throughout the year.
The day use portion of the recreation area includes 14 picnic sites, a playground, basketball court, volleyball court, horseshoe pits, day use shelter, boat ramp with courtesy dock. Facilities within the campground include showers, a playground, and 111 campsites with full hookups, consisting of electric, water, and sewer.
Wappapello Lake, fed by the St. Francis River, has a seemingly endless string of secluded coves hugged by a winding, wooded shoreline. The public recreation area spans 45,000 acres in the southeastern Ozark foothills.
Visitors can hike or bike down a scenic 3 mile asphalt bike trail that connects the Greenville Campground and Recreation area to the City of Greenville. Other enjoyable trails surround the lake, like the Johnson Tract Natural Area and Trail, the Ozark Trail, and the Wappapello State Park Trail.

The sites are large and have a big concrete pad attached to the drive. Lots of bike/walking trails. We were in the very back of the campground and it was quiet. The only thing missing was somewhere to swim or sit in the water. Lots of water there, but nowhere to sit in the river or lake.
Best campground we have been to.
