Nice and clean. The 3 campgrounds are next to the river and few trails are really close around
Lots of river-side campsites, choice between wooded or open areas, pit latrines or flushies, and standard or electric sites. There are groop camping and cabins. Heated bathroom is available. On-site showers and laundry, RV Dump stations, and a store that offers fishing and camping gear, souveniers and a small selection of food. During the summer, swimming pool is open. Roaring River State Park is home to a Trout hatchery and the river is stocked each evening with trout for fishing the next morning. Sites have fire pits and picnic tables. Handicapped campers will find an accessible site with a large, flat concrete pad, accessible restrooms, and an accessible fishing area.
Downsides: Huge streetlight shining in our tent all night instead of illuminating the actual road through campground making it too scary for late note forays to the restroom. Also, camp cop was overattentive to unaccompanied women but didnt seem to bother louder groups of guys drinking. Beautiful park made it a great place to return.
This campground offers a lot of options. Including trout fishing, hiking, and swimming. Located in South Missouri it is an easy day trip into Branson Missouri or Eureka Springs Arkansas. Very well located and very well run by the state. They offer a pretty well equipped camp store along with the lodge and restaurant. This state park is gorgeous and one of my favorite places to go. They also have a nature center and trout hatchery. Park is open year round, trout tags must be purchased at the camp Store. All campgrounds have nice bathrooms and showers. Just a heads up though if you are looking for a quiet relaxing weekend make sure you avoid kids free fishing weekend! It’s a ZOO that weekend!
The camp area is small, the resident camp cop made you feel unwelcome, and spied on. He drive by out camp area several times an hour. Since we were all women, it was creepy! People are packed in like sardines, didn’t feel like camping it felt like an outdoor concert with no music.
Busy, multiple campgrounds to stay at which can be confusing, especially if you are fishing. Lots of people come to fish who are not camping, which in turn ruins privacy. Pretty river, most campsites do not have a view of the river.
There are few deep swimming holes in the park although their are plenty of area's to wade and catch crawdads. Several different types of campsites. One area is more shaded and near the pool but not by river. The other two are all close to water but some lack shade. Fishing is good for all ages and day fishing licenses are available and hiking trails are great.Cell phone service works depending on provider and there is a store to buy essentials and souvenirs as well as a restaurant and hotel.
Relaxing & slow-paced, but plenty of activities to engage in - hiking, fishing, swimming, playground, touring fish hatchery
Excellent, clean campground. Facilities are kept clean and stocked. Great place to make family memories. We have been going for over 30 years. It's like our second home.
I love this campground. They have camping next to the bluff so it makes for a more serene experience. In the fall you can see bald eagles and they have some beautiful hiking along with good trout fishing.
