Overview

Mill Creek is a spacious and sunny campground on the White River Arm of Table Rock Lake in the Missouri countryside.

Many campsites within this park are located adjacent to the waters edge, with the remaining campsites only a short walk from the water with some of the best views on the lake.

Natural Features:

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

More than five million visitors per 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, Mill 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 2 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.

A boat ramp and swimming beach are provided, and the campground is surrounded by water on three sides, providing visitors with convenient access to the lake.

Facilities:

Mill Creek Campground offers 67 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 beach, boat ramp, playground, basketball and volleyball court make the campground perfect for family trips.

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 about the natural history of the area. Those visitors arriving by boat can take advantage of the courtesy dock.

Mill Creek Campground is about 18 miles from Branson, Missouri, which offers grocery stores, gas and additional tourist attractions.
