Not sure what you are looking for in Southern Missouri but check this link on the black river. The river is crystal clear, rock bottom, not very deep (in spots its deep) and is a canoe floatable. Quite a bit of canoing on the weekends. there is a canoe rental right by these campgrounds. Also a nice rock formation just about 30 minutes called the Johnson Shutins. Cool big rocks with the water diverting all around.

Hey powerboatr!
Thanks for the info. I checked it out and it looks pretty good. Noticed that Hot Springs is just a little further south. Maybe could make a nice trip out of it.
Thanks again!

South west MO resident

We live about 5 miles from Table Rock Lake in sw mo. 19 miles from Branson. Check out the corp. campgrounds. Cape Fair, Millcreek are ones that we go to for short trips. Enjoy time on the lake but then can drive into Branson for a day or so.

Camping at Eufaula Ok

Where do you suggest at Eufaula Lake is the best site? We have 2 kids and their families from Dallas that meet us there for get togethers. Have been there once and really enjoyed it.

We camp at Lake Eufaula State Park. There are two campgrounds. Easy to get to and roads are very good. Paved roads in the campgrounds and most sites are roomy, paved and level. Riding stables and a nice golf course just a few miles away.
The largest campground has lots of shade and is close to the marina (they have boat and jet ski rentals), boat ramp and an indoor fishing dock. Good crappie and catfish spot. Easy place for kids to fish. Also has a small cafe. There is a Nature Center the kids will enjoy. A couple of walking paths as well. Close to the water but no sites on the water. Water and electric hookups, 30 and 50 amp and a dump station. Unless they've changed, $16 to $18 (50 amp) on weekends and Holidays. $14 to $16 (50 amp) on Sundays and weekdays.
The other campground is not as large or near the water. Has partial shade but full hook ups. 30 amp only. $16 on Sunday and weekdays, $18 on holidays and weekends.
Only 2 or 3 miles from each other. Both have a pavilion and playgrounds. A swimming beach with playground equipment is located close to the large campground. It's not unusual to see deer, turkey and other wildlife in the campgrounds.
Of course being a State Park they don't take reservations. On holiday weekends people come from Tulsa, OKC, Ft. Smith and Dallas, so the campgrounds can fill up pretty quick. You'll need to get there by Wednesday or Thursday to pick your site. By Friday morning you get whats left. After that on big holidays your lucky to find a spot. Some people call in on Tuesday or Wednesday and pay for their site over the phone by credit card. They pay up through the weekend. If your traveling far that may be the only way to get a guaranteed site. I met a guy from Kansas 2 years ago on Memorial Day that did that. Good thing he did. All sites were taken by Friday afternoon. Any other weekend it's no problem finding a site.
Belle Starr campground has water and electric. You can get a site on the water with partial shade. Marina, cafe, indoor fishing dock and boatramp there also. It's been a few years since I've camped there. Rough narrow 2 lane for about 5 or 6 miles getting there.
I hope that helps you. If you decide to come up, I think you'll enjoy the lake.


The pictures on my post were taken at the campground with full hoockups last November.

Thanks lier!
I meant to tell you that on my last post. I will check out those campgrounds you mentioned. I always liked S.W. Mo. Went there with my parents 3 or 4 times on vacation when I was young. I think it would be nice to go there again after all these years. I'm pretty sure we spent some time at Table Rock. I do remember Rockaway Beach. I don't think it's as nice a spot now as it was back then. At least that's what some family members told me a few years back after they had gone by there.
I forgot to mention that both campgrounds at Lake Eufaula State Park have restrooms and showers. They clean them every morning.
Thanks again for the tip on Table Rock.
