Great relaxing creek

Put a tent up less than 30 yards from this spring feed creek. Sat with the cold water rushing over my feet. Enjoying he evening fog rolling in. The general store on site had everything you needed to make your stay comfortable. Beer! Showers were kick ass. So much water pressure and Hot. Will definitely stay here again.

Held our family reunions here for many years!

Beautiful view of the lake! The spill way is great to walk around and fish from! Fishing here is great! There are several play areas for the kids to enjoy!

Awesome swim beach!

Our kids had a lot of fun swimming here! The fishing was also excellent! Very easy to drive to and plenty of parking! Definitely recommend and would stay here again!

Enjoyed the clear water!

The lake is a clean lake with clear water! The swimming beach is all white sand with a platform to jump from not to far from the beach! However the fishing was not so good. We kayaked around the lake. We did see some fish around the marina, but fishing isn’t allowed there!

Nice quiet campground

River Road is a quiet, safe little campground with amenities, fishing, boating, kayaking, easily accessible. Showers, bathrooms, electric and water hookup, dump station. A friendly atmosphere with quick, over the hill, access to Clearwater Lake too. Shaded lots are plenty but get snatched up. Reservations (4 days in advance) and first come for available spots. Cell reception is spotty but there. TV reception won't happen. Fire pits, with grill grates and concrete tables. Fish the spillway or the down river for catfish, perch and bass. Kayak from the campground down to Kempers Corner and put out and drive back. Head over the hill to Clearwater Lake to swim and fish too. Good campground!

Our favorite in Eminence

A beautiful riverfront campground on the Jack’s Fork River.

Nice, but usually busy

Paved throughout. Plenty of clean restrooms and showers. MAKE RESERVATIONS! This campground exploded in the last few years and it's always packed when we go anymore is the only downside. Nice, basic and electric sites. Riverfront sites also. Some group sites there also. Floating can be reserved at the campground store.

Great spot for anyone

Loved the spot! Have been for a adults trip and a family trip

Wonderful place to stay

Owners are very friendly and accommodating. Save your money and buy firewood here at the hideaway, best value ($7) and a large amount, you can also purchase ice here as well in the office area. Bathrooms were very clean and well lit. We were the only tent in the park on laborday weekend and it was very nice, we slept great, everyone that pasted by our campsite waved or chatted very friendly. Such a wonderful, quiet and relaxing get away we had. Cant wait to return.

Quiet

This is a popular place during summer months, fishing, vault toilets.

Old campground that is no longer managed so it is free.

Beautiful scenic best spot

This is on the North Fork River, blue green crystal clear water, vault toilets only, in October after closing can be solo camping.           Long beautiful drive in, narrow road would not reccomend for motorhome over 20' or any large camper as there is no backing up or turn arounds.

Free in off season

Small n quiet

On North Fork river, open sites w fire pits.  Best for tents n small rigs, vault toilets. No other facilities, river is popular for water activities, kayaking, canoe, river trips fishing.

On river

Was not a busy campground but it was October and a gloomy weather, quiet.

Peaceful

Just off highway, it is dispersed camping in a park that no longer charges, blacktop pad, lantern hook, picnic table, fire ring w cooking grate at ea site, vault toilets.

There was a fire a few years ago so some burned out areas, lots of firewood, small lake for fishing no motorized boats, great hike/walk around lake.  There is a gas station/truck stop near.   Great stop to regroup on a long road trip.

Nice and family friendly

Super clean campground. Great swim area. Shower house is basic. We stayed in our RV on a spot with river view. Was really nice! Site 148 has standing water when it rains, but that was the only wet spot in the RV areas. They have floating outfitter to rent or they will but your own boat in.

Newly built state park

It is a beautiful state park and very clean. It's like someone went into the middle of a forest and took out a section of trees. All around the park are beautiful bluffs of trees.

Great campground close to eminence

This is a great campground that is just outside of eminence and has just about everything that you need from spacious tree covered tent sites to full RV sites as well. Easy access to both the jacks for river and Alley spring Because flooding destroyed the old restroom a new one has been built in its place with a full shower house as well. If you want a nice peaceful campground that is in the heart of the Ozarks scenic River Ways you will definitely want to check this place out

Missouri’s newest state park has it all!

This place literally has everything you can want from walk in tent sites to an entire lodge with all the amenities. Campsites are all well manicured and offer everything from basic sites to full RV hook ups. The only negative is that we have experienced are that you need to reserve your side months in advance because this campground is so popular. And the only other negative is that all of the campsites are out in the open with no shade. But other than that it’s easy to see why the state park is a perfect representation of how much pride Missouri takes in its conservation and park system.

Awesome

This place was great. The showers and bathrooms were clean. The river was close to go swimming or tubing. Everyone was friendly and helpful

11 point river

This is a great place to start your 11 point river trip! Stop here to rent your canoes or kayaks and get dropped off wherever. You can drive to Greer Spring that is a spring that comes out of a cave. It was in Backpacker Magazine as well. This has been my favorite river to float down so far. I’d suggest making the trip without kids the first time to judge your skill level. It’s a bit fast and deep at the beginning. Lots of stopping points on this river. Very scenic.

Decent campground

Nice, mostly shaded sites  Very busy on holiday weekends.  Decent showers.
