There are plenty of hiking trails there, as well as Petit Jeans grave site if you believe the story. Also be sure to visit the automobile museum.

By the way, if your pulling a larger camper you might consider going up and down from the western side of the mountain. The eastern side is more steep and curved.

Thank you for the info. We are arriving from the western side, however we plan on leaving on the eastern side. Our TT is a 21ft windjammer!! Hopefully we won't have any problems!

If you like hiking, then hike down to the waterfall. I would say to get a hamburger from the restaurant there at Mather Lodge, but don't know if it is opened back up yet...as it was closed in later 2010/ and all 2011 for renovations. They get their meat from the nearby Winrock Farms (all natural, no steroids, growth hormones, etc.) and it tastes good.

Near Camdenton, MO (near/on Lake of the Ozarks) is Ha Ha Tonka State Park. No camping at this park but lots of hiking and some pretty cool old remains of a huge private home. There are plenty of places to camp in the area and around the lake.

Cove Lake. National Forest Service campground. Beautiful. Nice for canoeing or kayaking.

Stayed at Watkins Mill State Park back in 2006 I think. If I'm ever back in that area, will definitely make a point to stop in again. Wayne
