Very beautiful campgrounds with most sites having access to Sylamore Creek, within 20 ft. Very cheep rates but no hook-ups, just a dump station. There are 3 trails and loops nearby that are just wonderful and the fishing here is nice (buy trout stamps). I don't think there is an unshaded spot in the park. There are not many sites that can comfortably fit 40 footers but there are 5 other campgrounds in the park that offer very similar camping so you can keep looking if you don't like what you see. I really would suggest checking out all the campsites during your stay so you can locate that perfect one for next time. No reservations here and it does get near full in the summer but I've never not found a spot. - phillipstewart

Large, mostly level asphalt sites most overlooking river. 50 amp service and water located at rear of site so longer stretch for connecting. No OTA TV. Verizon service adequate and limited Sprint. Public boat ramp and shore fishing. Fire pit was within 5 feet of neighbor's firepit which was suprising as large open area. - bbmidwife

We originally planned to stay for two nights but we liked it so much we stayed for three. Our campsite was up on a ridge overlooking the river as it comes out from the dam. It is a lovely shallow river with white water and sand and pebble island. The birds were migrating north and they were everywhere especially herons and blue birds. This river seems to be a prime trout fly fishing spot because just about everyone else was there to fish. It was also very family oriented with lots of kids and a nice playground. Half the campground was closed to camping while we were there and several sites did not have the water on but there is a spot to fill your rig near the washroom. About half the campsites are reserve and half are first come first serve. Our campsite was spacious and lovely. There is a boat launch and picnic area. The campground hosts were friendly and helpful and the bathrooms were clean. There is a large day visitor/picnic section and so daytime were very busy with children at the playground. We were not able to get any TV on our antennae nor did we get a cell phone signal and our satellite radio had trouble acquiring a signal. Up above the dam on a very steep winding road it a nice boat launch are for the accessing the lake and another big playground. - Judy Birchland

Good views of the river. Pleasant and helpful staff. Level, paved sites. Some sites have covered picnic tables and benches by river bank. - Circe

We give this an 8 instead of a 7- because of the location in the hollow by the creek. WiFi was erratic. Cell service die not exist. But did I mention the creek? Gorgeous! Temp was 100F but the water was just fine. Interior roads were gravel and sand and rutty. None of the sites had concrete pads or patios. Rutted sandy site required use of jack pads. LOTS of shade everywhere. Limited number of 50 amp sites. Single washer and dryer for the camp use. Nice pool and bath/shower buildings. Number of Day Users made it more busy. There really is a swinging bridge over the creek. Very nice clubhouse with kitchen. WiFi in the clubhouse was very good. Sites may be a little rustic, but did I mention the creek? We plan to return. - Vdsavell

We did not camp here. We did visit to see what was available. I did not see this review before we went. The last two reviews were spot on. They do offer 50 amp at some sites now and cable TV. The whole park was run down. Gravel sites most look unlevel. Grass is quite tall and trees need trimmed. The bridge going to the RV sites looks very un-safe. The supports under the bridge are all cracked. I can't believe it hasn't been shut down. They are affiliated with Coast to Coast. Signs all over saying new management but there is so much deferred maintenance we would never stay there. - M.Register

Very run down park. We were here 7 nights and the grass was not mowed at all. Unsafe bridge, dogs running loose, trees untrimmed and unfriendly staff. - lm1939

Went here because to visit the self proclaimed "Folk Music Center of the World." Go get a dulcimer down the road at The Dulcimer Shop! Wonderful folks there. Campground is every bit as good as the previous reviews: long sites, good power and water and sewer. Trees so we had good shade most of the day. Some long-term people there who were very friendly. Nice clean bath house. And the wifi worked-something I never expect at an rv park. Plus we had a great time in town listening to music and a good visit to Ozark National Forest and the Blanchard Caverns. Owner is super helpful and friendly. - PeterCC

This is not a fancy resort but it has much to offer. No noise from trains. It is clean, neat, well maintained, immediately next to the Ozark Mountain Folk Center. Full service sites with morning paper delivery to your RV's front step? Most of the shaded sites are back-in sites but they have a few pull-thru sites with some shade. My site had a downward slope that was more of a nuisance than a problem. They have church services on Sunday, Dulcimer Jam Session Monday Nights; Potluck Tuesdays. T-Mobile does not work here. The high speed WiFi does not work. At best expect very, very slow service. - Norm Nice Guy

Owner was very rude. Sites were very close with fire ring I felt was too close between sites to be safely used. Site too narrow to deploy awning. No breaker or disconnect at site for 50 amp service. Cable TV requires rented cable box. 2 weeks prior to our arrival we had reserved reserved site 32 , but it was not available when we arrived. - John498

I couldn't have asked for better accommodations. The site was perfect for parking my Winnebago. All hook ups good. The gravel driveways are well maintained. Pickin' Shed made it a friendly place to share mountain music as well as food. Very friendly and helpful staff. Pay for two weeks that includes the whole month. The price stated was the average, daily rate for a weeks stay. Well worth the price. We will return. - Train Fan

The office staff was awesome. If we had any type of problems, they were there to help. The couple is originally from South Louisiana and they are always on top of things. I would definitely stay with them again. - Cajungrl1960

Arrived and were checked in by a most gracious host who showed us where our site would be. The sites are gravel/grass, mostly level. In the area where we were, it was hard to tell sites apart. There were three or four sewer connections within 10-20 feet of where we stayed. Cable, WiFi worked well. You have to know the area to make the best use of this and other parks and be there for Friday and Saturday night music sessions. We would return. - db1112

Campground was OK. A little tight to get around with a 40' and tow. Sites are gravel/grass. Not a lot to do here. OK for a night if passing through but not a real long term place. Will probably look for a different park next time, maybe one with a pool. - sandimal

We has planned to stay in another park but friends convinced us to stay here. Unfortunately, we think that was a mistake. The sites are waaay too narrow. We could almost touch our neighbors by reaching out our side window and this is the tightest space we have ever seen in our 6 years of full time RVing. I would NEVER stay here again because of the narrow sites. Having said that, the park is convenient to downtown Mountain View and is within walking distance of the square. Wi-Fi worked great and cable TV worked pretty well with some channels being fuzzy. Park is quiet and has a pickin' shed for folks to gather and play music. It's also next to a very nice city park with a great walking trail. If the owners would not try to pack folks in like sardines this could be a really nice place to stay. - Slouman

The park grounds are situated right on the White River and there is a large bluff on the opposite shore. It is very beautiful and quiet. However, this does not make up for the unlevel site, no cell service, very weak to non-existent wi-fi, no cable, no over the air t.v. channels or lousy sewer hook-ups. Bring a satellite dish, dvds or lots to read because there is nothing else for entertainment after dark. Also it is about a 20 minute drive to Gassville for the closest supplies. The shower house was basic painted cinder block construction and was generally clean. Make sure you wear some flip flops in the shower. The water pressure was o.k.
My travel trailer has black/grey water hookups that are a little closer to the ground than most RVs and the sewer connection was up hill from the hookups. I tried to dig a shallow trench to allow the hose to level out some, but the pvc sewer connection was about 3-4 inches higher than the ground. I could not use my folding hose support to make up for the uphill climb. The rigs next to me had already left, so I had to move my trailer over to a vacant spot to finish emptying my tanks. I had to use about 20 feet of sewer hose to reach the sewer. If your rigs hookups are 15 inches or so off the ground, you shouldn't have a problem.
The site was 3 inches unlevel from side to side and slopes to the river which made my rear steps really high when the trailer was level. I would recommend site 3, 4 or 5. They appeared to be the most level and spacious. The fifth wheel next to us was about 15 feet away from us, but it was ok. The excess parking is in a well manicured grass field across the road from our site. If there are other vehicles parked across from you when you try to pull out with your camper, it is very tight or impossible. Some folks actually pulled out through the field to leave and got back on the road after clearing the parked cars.
If you are trying to get away from the world, telephone and want total peace and quiet, this is your place. Fishing rules the camp and cooking on the campfire rules the day. If you need internet, cell service, a shorter drive to town, etc., there are better choices in Cotter, Flippin or Harrison. - Octane ZX

Quite, beautiful, and secluded. Stayed 3 nights, but could have stayed a month. Only complain: The RV is 13'4" tall. When I got to the park, I found low limbs going down drive. Climbed on top of my coach to keep limbs from damaging it. - Genecolleen

Five miles north of Mountain View. Most of the sites are gravel, some level and a few not level with a lot of shade. Most of the campground is flat making easy walking.
Ask for a friendly satelite site if you need TV. We have no AT&T phone service, but their wifi works good.
The little creek is pretty and some tent sites available next to it, but no RV sites next to creek with clear view.
The staff is very friendly. The park is clean and maintained. They have firewood for sale. They rent canoes. - Jloftin

I, my wife and our two year old stayed 4 nights. It was very family friendly and safe. Our son loved to go see their animals in the shop. We were on the water so we could easily walk to the creek and play within sight of our camper. It is close to the Ozark Folk Center and Blanchard Caverns. Overall a great Family place. We would stay there again and have recommended it to some our friends. - 3child

Excellent location right on a beautiful stream. Had level gravel sites, easy hookups and well maintained grounds. Owner does have his "toys" in one area that needs to be cleaned up, but that does not interfere with the campground. - kick
