Overview

Aunts Creek campground is located on the James River Arm of Table Rock Lake. With easy access to the highly productive waters of the James River Arm, fishermen and campers looking to fish, will find no shortage of angling opportunities.

The campground is primarily wooded with most sites offering a sweeping view of the water and surrounding foothills of the Ozark Mountains.

Natural Features:

Table Rock Lake is a beautiful, clear body of water surrounded by a forest of oak and hickory trees. The scenic waters wind down through the valleys and hollows of the Ozark Mountains, from Branson, Missouri to Eureka Springs, Arkansas.

More than five million visitors a year take advantage of this recreational oasis. Originally built for flood control, the Table Rock Dam has created a lake that boasts 779 miles of shoreline for the public to enjoy.

Recreation:

Whether on water or land, Aunts Creek campground offers visitors countless recreational activities. Picnicking, swimming, scuba diving, boating, fishing, hunting, hiking and wildlife viewing are all popular pastimes at the park.

While the lake boasts an abundance of crappie, catfish, and bluegill, Table Rock is most famous for bass, and is acclaimed as one of the best bass fishing lakes in this hemisphere.

Table Rock Lakeshore Trail, about two miles long, runs from the Dewey Short Visitor Center to the Table Rock State Park Marina. During the spring hikers will see dogwood, serviceberry and redbud trees in bloom as well as many wildflower species. During the autumn months, visitors are treated to nature's colorful fall foliage. The trail also offers beautiful views of Table Rock Lake.

Other hiking and mountain biking opportunities are available at the Mark Twain National Forest, parts of which are easily accessible from the campground. Click here for more information.

Facilities:

Aunts Creek offers 55 reservable campsites, along with one large reservable group picnic shelter. Amenities like hot showers, drinking water, a dump station and electric hookups create a comfortable camping experience.

A boat ramp and swimming beach are located at the campground, providing visitors with convenient access to the water. Right next to the swimming beach, visitors will find a volleyball court and grassy picnic area, perfect for spending a day outdoors.

Nearby Attractions:

The Dewey Short Visitors Center is located at the south end of Table Rock Dam. It offers three educational films focused on the history of the dam, the story of Lewis and Clark and the history of eagles and their endangerment in the state of Missouri.

The visitor center also contains exhibits on the natural history of the area. Visitors arriving by boat can take advantage of the courtesy dock.
