Our favorite in Eminence

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

Stopped by for a night on our way through

We really enjoyed our stay. The lake was up about 10 ft according to the camp host and had been flooded most of the summer. Both boat ramps were under water and several of the sites were still flooded too. The campground has a shower house on one end and vault toilets on the other. All sites are water and electric only. Most sites were older asphalt pads, but there were several newer sites, all concrete, and huge.

A small quite place to spend the weekend

Didn't realize that there was a Meramec State Park and a Meramec Springs park, about 30 miles apart. More of a parking spot than a campground, gravel parking spots and not a lot else. Not one of my favorite spots to date. Was within a 1/4 mile of the Springs park and fairly central to several nice day trips. Went to Meramec State Park, which was much nicer. Went to the springs, they were nice. Went to Montauk State park.

More resort than campground

This place has about anything you would want with the possible exception of peace and quiet. Store, pool, ropes course, playground, and several options for floating, including a 1 1/2 mile tube loop you can do over and over all day. The place is huge, with tent and RV areas, cabins, and the shower houses even have rooms above them. The sites we stayed at were fairly small and in the sun, but there were plenty of larger sites and many are shaded. They also have buddy sites configured for camping with friends and awnings facing each other.

They put on a large fireworks show on Independence Day right on the gravel bar. There is a family side and a party side that are well separated.

A nice campground

Pretty nice campground although the spaces were a little small and crowded. No cell service and very limited wifi. We didn't float although the campground did offer several options. A couple of nice gravel bars to relax on, one shaded and one in the sun.

Best campground on the Elk

We love camping at Two Sons. The owners are great people and run a really nice place. The sites are all grass pads and fairly large, with several right on the water. Electric/water only, so the one drawback is no sewer connections. You’ll have to use the onsite dump station. Very large gravel bar for relaxing on, several nice floats that end right at the campground.

Our Favorite campground on the Niangua

We have camped here several times and always love it. Level concrete pads on most sites. The sites are fairly large so you’re not on top of your neighbor. It has a playground and a large area in the middle of the loop for playing. The river has a couple nice gravel bars for swimming. All the RV sires are electric/water so you have to use the on site dump station.
