Primitive and Full Hook Up

I've seen some reviews say its outdated and I'm not sure where that comes from. On season they offer a variety of float and eat packages that are tasty and nicely priced. Cute little campground with "primitive", electric and full hook ups. All tent camping is still pretty close to the general store that also has coin showers! You have good options for a shady and grassy spot if you're tent camping too. Great folks working there, always very friendly and helpful.

A sweet little spot

Easy to miss with a quick turn off but once you cross the bridge on the main road you will be curious about the creek below. A handful of primitive camp sites with a fire ring, picnic table & lantern hook. Quick access to the cool creek and the much cooler river—crystal clear waters. Would advise a pair of water shoes for walking the riverbed and water as they are very rocky (available at nearby store if needed).

A peaceful and inexpensive site to rest your head and rejuvenate in the waters.

Close to everything!

Close to everything and more. This is a City park with full hookups and a creek, but nothing else. We stayed here four nights to tour the county. Great location and convenient to see Route 66 and lots of history, but the park itself offers no amenities.

Good spot for an all day float trip.

This location has been a constant location visited over the last ten years for an annual float trip with my friends. Enough ground to spread our tents out and still being close to the campfire while not being bothered by other campers.

Great FCFS camping along Ozark NSR!

We took a last-minute trip on a beautiful weekend in June 2020 to get outside (responsibly) during the pandemic. Two Rivers campground did not disappoint! We were able to get a first come first served site around 4:30p on a Friday - it was one of two remaining sites so we likely lucked out. The campground had gnats, but we didn’t get too many mosquitos so for that we were grateful. There were several other groups who were camping there to go floating; there is an outfitter right at the campground with a small convenience store in a trailer. They coordinate float trips and rent canoes and rafts. We didn’t float this time, but would definitely consider returning to do so! Would recommend going for sites on the outside of the ring, if possible - these seemed to have more shade and a tad more privacy.

Fantastic

Great camping!  Flat spots.  Mostly shaded.  Nice hosts.  Bathrooms close to all the spots.  Shower facilities nice.  Great swimming holes (recommend checking out the bluff hole).  Ranger programs on the weekends were very informative and friendly.  Can't wait to go back!

Great Experience

A group of friends and I go to Garrison’s every year for a great float and two nights of camping. We have been able to reserve a private area for a pretty large group, and we have the area to ourselves!

Pines Overlook Loop BEST Mark Twain NF tent sites

We stayed at sites 45 and 46 in the pines overlook loop with our 2 tents. There really is only room for one tent at each site in the grass. The mountain views were outstanding! The camp friendly host "Buddy"  has dry firewood cheaper than the uncovered wood up the road from the locals. Shaded, grassy, and very private except for the occasional visitors who drive up the road to see the overlook near these two campsites. There is a vault toilet close by, but at the overlook site we could not find the water spigot, but we brought water with us for dispersed camping anyway. There are plenty of trails and a short drive down to the cool Huzzah river creek. Outstanding!

Site 26

We just got back into camping after many years. Red Bluff was our first trip and it was not a disappointment! We were there during the week at the end of July and it wasn't very crowded. The folks that were there were very friendly & pleasant. We had our 6 month old twin labs on their first camping trip and the lower beach area access was perfect for them! The upper bluff camping would be awesome…they are primitive sites, but the view is beautiful. We will definitely go back here. We met a couple from Kansas that drives 6 hours to camp here every year, that says a lot.

Dangerous

We stayed here as a group of 5 RV campers. Our campers backed up to a fence about 5 feet off the highway. Cars and trucks fly down this highway at very fast speeds all hours of the day and night. Worried for everyone’s safety if there was a crash. Second worry was getting hit by a car trying to cross the highway to get to the river. Once we finally all got across it was quite a walk to the water (meramac River) and the water smelled terrible! We never got in the water there it smelled so bad..we all packed up and went to RedBluff for the day to play in the water. Only thing that made this place fun was the DJ/karaoke at night
