10 Parks near Bunker, Missouri
Oct 2012 - $31.00
This campground has recently been revamped. It is near the Black River and a short drive from Johnson's Shut-Ins and Elephant Rock State Parks. Site #29 is very difficult to get into. Few sites are level but all are paved and spacious. Very quiet in October. We will go back to this campground. - Pat and Rex

This is a gem for those of us who just want peace and quiet. The campground is behind the owners home and store. There is a bath house that is always clean. There are only 4 RV sites the rest are tent sites some with electric. There are no pads just a gravel area. Each has a fire ring and picnic table. Pets are welcome. - gill3427

This is a brand new state park - just opened in July. Although there are no trees yet, it is a beautiful park! All sites are concrete pads with picnic tables & fire ring. Free wifi with a fairly strong signal. Cellphone service is little to none unless you go to the Lodge, then it is good. Highway 19 between Salem & the park is VERY curvy & hilly. We loved it here & will definitely be back! - bgw5350

This state park and campground opened last month, so we knew not to expect any shade near the campsites.
Other than that, they did a first-rate job in the design and layout with extra-wide roadways. Plenty of full hookup sites. Clean restrooms and showers.
The park may be remotely located but there's plenty of activities. - semodan

This is a brand new park. All facilities are brand new and shiny and well maintained. There are 62 electric sites and 12 walk in. The sites are not large and for now there is absolutely no shade for non primitive sites. The scenery of this nearly 500 acre park is what makes it special. Many trails to hike and the Sinking Creek river offers a beautiful place to swim, fish and float. The park has a beautiful lodge and restaurant overlooking the bluff and creek boasting decks to sit and relax to enjoy the view. - skeeter417

We stayed in loop 2 site 219 which has full hookups. We stayed from June 28 - July 1. The concrete pads are fairly level, the hookups are in the concrete pad. The spacing on the sites range from nearby to spacious. The campground has basic, electric, equestrian, and FHU sites available. There are numerous trails including a connection to the Ozark Trail. This area is very remote, the campground store has everything you need if you forget something including the only WIFI hotspot in the campground. This campground is a cell phone dead area "NO SERVICE". You can get cell phone service at the Park Visitor Center which is a mile away. - 2G's

We arrived on a Friday for a 4-night stay in loop 3. The check-in process was easy and the staff was very nice and provided us with a campground map. Our first stop was at the fresh water fill, which was very slow. For some reason, they have a water pressure regulator on the potable water faucet which made a 90 gallon fill last about 25 minutes. Loop 3 is a premium electric site and the sites are well spaced and pretty level with a concrete pad. We had an ant problem at the site and I wished I had bought some insect spray as we kept finding them in our TT and climbing up the stabilizer legs. I used the shower and toilet in our trailer but my wife used the loop's flushing toilets and shower. She reported they were clean but the showers do not have vent fans and were very damp and humid. The campground store has a fair amount of items but a bit costly. The staff at the store and the park ranger I talked to on a few occasions was very friendly and offered us suggestions on places to swim since the Shut In's river was closed due to high water. One annoyance I had was with some of the grounds crew. They used gas powered leaf blowers to clean off the porch area at the store while my wife and I sat at the outdoor tables...very loud and annoying. The laundry room had 4 working washers and 4 dryers and was fairly clean. There was no Sprint or AT&T cell service in the CG and the store Wi-Fi is a bit slow. - Iraqvet05

The only downside to this campground is the route you have to drive to get there! Narrow, winding, curvy, hilly, no shoulders on many of the roads and that's just the roads to get to the state park! Once inside the campground, the roads are adequate and nicely laid out with ample room between sites and room to get backed into back-in sites. There are several loops with a variety of services from which to select.
You are very cut off from the outside world in this park! There's no internet, phone or TV to be had anywhere in the campground. Even at the store where we were told you could get service, we didn't find anything on either Verizon or AT&T. We didn't really find this to be a huge problem other than us personally adjusting and changing habits for a few days.
All the staff we talked to were very friendly and helpful. The surrounding scenery and the river are amazing! Well worth the visit. - PegL

Beautiful area! Summer weekends get crowded with a party atmosphere. They have canoe and raft rentals for floating. The "beach" area is a great place to hang out at once the floats trips have shoved off for the day, it's an easy walk as it's part of the campgrounds. Bathrooms seem to be keep as clean as possible for all the people that were there the weekend that we stayed. Watch for lower hanging branches if you have a larger RV or motorhome. Sites appeared to be mostly dirt or gravel. - DDnDoug

A beautiful park! The park sits on the Black river, although RV sites are not on the river. Most RV sites are water and electric only, with one dump station available as you leave the park. Some of the sites are very difficult to get into if you have a big rig; watch those overhead branches! They do have a few pull through sites, but even some of those are better to back in and out of to avoid the many trees. This place gets busy in the summer, so you probably should call ahead. I've had some trouble with the electric boxes over the years; the place could use a few repairs. Free, abundant firewood most of the time. - jaybird777

This campground was a mixed bag. On the plus side, it sits right on the Black River, which is crystal clear, and has gorgeous scenery. The campground rents tubes, canoes and rafts, and will take you five miles up the river for a delightful float trip back down to the campground. The campground offers free firewood, and has limited supplies in the camp store. It is close to Johnson Shut Ins State Park, which is a wonderful place to spend an afternoon swimming. On the negative side, this is definitely a campground and not an RV resort! There are no full hookup sites, and the dump station was difficult to maneuver around, messy and smelly. Lots of shade trees make the sites awkward for large RV's. Sites were sandy. There are sites for horse campers, and if you don't have a horse, you definitely don't want to be in one of those sites! It seemed to us that most of the people camping here were repeat customers for many years, and we felt a bit out of place as "newbies". The office staff weren't overly friendly, and didn't seem to care whether they had our business or not. We enjoyed the river, but if we returned to that area, I think we would try one of the other campgrounds. - shayerk

A very nice secluded park along the Current River. We had a particular site that was just a few steps from the river with our own private sandy beach. No hookups, but it seemed to be generator-friendly, and there is a water spigot centrally located to fill your tanks as needed. We just stopped for one night, but it appeared to be a popular camping destination. Self-registration center; $14.00 a night. - JaredWPhillips

What a pleasant surprise this campground was-- we practically had it entirely to ourselves. It was hard to choose a campsite-- they were all long, level and shaded, plus each one had a level area for a tent. In addition to the parking spur, fire ring and picnic table, each site had a counter height table with a shelf above that, all sheltered by a roof, where you could do your meal prep. There was no electricity or dump station. Vault toilets were located throughout the campground. There were several water spigots and some were threaded so you could fill your tank. The campground has a trail that lets you access the 12-mile hike/bike trail that encircles the lake. We used this trail to reach the boat launch where they had a nice shady, waterfront picnic area. Further down the trail (or accessible by car) was a lovely beach area that appeared to be locally popular. The beach restroom did have flush toilets and coin operated showers. The lake is 440 acres and has a no wake rule. There is also pedestrian access from this lake-front trail to the Trace Creek section of the Ozark Trail--- Missouri's long distance hiking trail. The campground has 39 single sites, 7 double sites, 9 walk-in tent sites, and 4 group sites. Some of these are available for reservation on recreation.gov. Our rate reflected the access pass discount, but there is no discount on the double sites. - midcenturynana

Nice Forest Service campground on the Huzzah creek. During the week in October I had the lower loop to myself. Fall colors were beautiful. The non-electric sites were nice and level. The few electric single sites are large but are unfortunately not level and the pads are narrow. There are a few double electric sites that are level but twice the price. Site 28 was the most level of the single electric sites. - Kevin5203

This is a nice relaxing National Forest camp ground. Paved roads and paved pads. A few sites have 30 Amp electric that worked very well. Several threaded water spigots available to fill fresh water tanks from. No dump station - need to dump at a private RV resort. Huge sites but some of the RV pads were narrow with big drop offs at one or both sides of the pavement. The paved entrance road and camp roads are well maintained. The entrance road was due for some tree trimming, but it was not too bad - had to drive around a few low-hanging branches.
Overall this is a great place to get away and enjoy the forest, Huzzah creek with its really neat brown gravel and the very tall red bluffs. - eb145

This is a campground that is part of the Mark Twain National Forest. The campground is located near Davisville, outside of Steeleville, Missouri. Steeleville is known as the float capital of Missouri. The Huzzah Creek runs around the campground. The campground gets its name from a beautiful red bluff overlooking the creek near the campground. This was a nice quiet campground with a 2 mile hiking trail through the park. The hiking trail was very nice and you can fish or wade in the creek. You can catch river trout and other fish in the creek. - junebug
