The owners are very friendly and helpful. Very willing to talk and answer questions or help out. We noticed they took special care of our neighbor, an elderly gentleman. The park is pretty small with lots of shade and trees. We were there in fall so it was lovely with the autumn colors. The pad was very long, but not wide enough to have room on the side of our rig for our "patio" seating. The fire ring is more behind the rig than to the side. There is a very short nature walk on site, but of course, there are many trails within an hour of the campsite in the Buffalo River area. We camped at Shady Oaks Campground & RV Park in a Motorhome.

Fall is a great time to visit this area. Recommend driving the loop and Highway 7. Also the hike to Whitaker Point to see the Hawksbill Crag is a great hike, small inclines and very rocky but easy hike of about 2 hours. In nearby Harrison, there is a great bakery - Neighbors Mill Bakery and Cafe, try the muffins!

Very nice camp and staff. Site 20 was great for a longer toy hauler. Roads in camp good except for the initial turn which they helped guide you through. Hopefully they will eventually remove the stump (??) that is in the way. We camped at Shady Oaks Campground & RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

My wife and I had the pleasure of staying at Shady Oaks this past week. The campground was very clean. The owners were very helpful from start to finish with setting up and breaking down our camper. Although there are a lot of trees it was very easy to get in and out with our 32' toy hauler. The spot we were in was long enough to put the truck, camper and 2 motorcycles without anything hanging out into the road. The campground offers a laundry, showers and a game area with enough games to keep a large group of people entertained. We will be back. We camped at Shady Oaks Campground & RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Under new ownership. They have done a great job maintaining the quiet, peaceful atmosphere from the previous owner, and updates the park to make it even better than before. This was one of our favorite RV Parks and will remain that way with the new owner. Highly recommended. We camped at Shady Oaks Campground & RV Park in a Motorhome.

Shady Oaks is our true 2nd home. We are long-term Campers at this site since early 2018 and would not want to go anywhere else. This is the most beautiful, well-manicured and clean Campground in the region. The owners Robert, Melissa and campground host Jodi have become our true friends. They have poured their heart and soul into making this the nicest, cleanist, well maintained campground a family would ever want to visit. The mature tall trees provide shade and beauty. If your looking for entertainment you will love the Pavilion. You can play pool, darts, ping pong, listen to music, play horseshoes and enjoy many other activities. Meeting our returning camping friends make every weekend a reunion. If you visit, I promise you will fall in love with our little slice of heavan. :) We camped at Shady Oaks Campground & RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Excellent campground, lot of new and well maintained buildings and equipment. Under new management, gracious hosts. Good tent sites with smooth base for setup, including electrical hookups. Stayed 4 nights. We camped at Shady Oaks Campground & RV Park in a Tent.

We stayed at this campsite the first week of a 3 month journey. This was away from major highways, very quiet and in the woods, good shade. We toured 2 caves in the area, very impressive.

During our travels through 10 states we kept a log on most to least impressive campsites. Shady Oaks was in the top 10 (even compared to 2 resorts). Looking at the previous reviews I was shocked to see the 2 star review from October 2016. We seen no full time campsites in the park and we always do a walk around. No clutter seen. It would be sad if a poor review was posted to a wrong campground.

Clean restrooms. Spacious, mostly shady sites. We would stay here again. We camped at Shady Oaks Campground & RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

We stayed two nights here and were very pleased. The owner has spent a lot of time and effort on the grounds. We have 2 young kids, and the playground area was nice, fenced in, and roomy. We felt comfortable letting them go play on their own. The sites were roomy, shady (although it was early march and the oaks were still dormant), and level. It was NCAA tournament time, so we were happy to have cable TV included. We bought firewood and had some nice fires in the pit provided. Some of the trees appeared problematic for maneuvering at first glance, but the owner was very helpful in giving the best path to get in and out of your slot, and we had no problems. The bath house was very clean and well maintained. I would have given this campsite a 10 if it weren't for Wifi. I asked my husband to go back to the office to get the password for it, and while waiting in line, he heard the owner tell the guest ahead of him that she didn't give out the password - that you were here to camp. So he did not ask. We value wifi, as we need to check email and keep up with family members, so this was a disappointment. We camped at Shady Oaks Campground & RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Came to ride motorcycles in the area a couple of days. Very clean and quiet park, well maintained, lots of space between sites. Best cable picture in all the campgrounds we've been to. Couldn't use satellite dish but really didn't need to. We camped at Shady Oaks Campground & RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

We were told the campground was full but found us a spot in the full time area. We had to maneuver around a big stump.

The campground never had more than 5 campers the entire week. The area we were in was full of old campers with dead refrigerators and junk all around them. People and loud music all hours of the day and night. Was such a tight spot took 45 minutes to get out. If traveling to the. Ozarks look for somewhere else to stay. We camped at Shady Oaks Campground & RV Park in a Motorhome.

As someone else had stated, this campground off the main road, but

super quiet with lots of trees. Staff very friendly. Probably would not stay here again because of the location. But if wanting to experience the camping experience with family who enjoys a pool, this campground would be for you. Did wash and dry a load of clothes. There were two washers and two dryers. The washer that I used did work, but the first dryer I tried, did not work. Our site was level. We camped at Shady Oaks Campground & RV Park in a Truck Camper.

Small park off the road a ways. Friendly check in. Pull through site. Trees and shade. Park is well kept. Utilities are easy to hook to and worked well. Sites and roads are gravel. I wouldn't call it big rig friendly but probably usable. Site was level. Didn't try the cable hookup. Verizon worked well. We camped at Shady Oaks Campground & RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Super quiet RV park that is pet friendly and motor-cycle friendly. Off the beaten path, but easy to find and work the few minutes to get there from the highway. The park is replete with mature oak trees that offer great Summer shade and there is a medium-sized in-ground pool. We camped at Shady Oaks Campground & RV Park in a Motorhome.

Nice place and close to the Buffalo River NRA. Camp host was very helpful answering questions about the area. Campground is kind of small but with so much to do in the area, it didn't matter to us. We were here off season on a fall trip, but it looks like the pool & playground would be nice for families. I'd stay here again. We camped at Shady Oaks Campground & RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Some of the sites have tight access trying to navigate around the many trees. I managed on two tries to make the turn into the site. All roads and parking sites are gravel. The sewer connection was actually higher than the tank outlet, so dumping the tank was a bit of a problem. The 50 amp service had only 108 VAC on one leg so I had to use the 30 amp outlet. The owner is very nice and accommodating and offers a 15% discount for Veterans. Had to pay cash for a one night stay. Lots of bikers staying at the campground, but noise wasn't a problem. We camped at Shady Oaks Campground & RV Park in a Motorhome.
