Long Creek Campground is closed for renovations. We will reopen in 2018.

Long Creek is a large campground that sits along the Long Creek Arm of Table Rock Lake in the scenic Missouri countryside.

This campground awards expansive views of the lake as well as plenty of opportunities for water recreation and a full-service marina located on-site.

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. The lake is known for its deep, clear water, with visibility so high, scuba diving is a popular pastime. 

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, Long Creek Campground offers visitors countless recreational activities. Picnicking, swimming, scuba diving, boating, fishing, hunting, hiking, bowfishing and wildlife viewing are all popular activities at the park. 

Boating enthusiasts will appreciate the campground's large, full-service marina, which offers everything from fuel to equipment rentals. Popular activities on the lake include water skiing, wakeboarding, tubing and of course, fishing. 

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

Long Creek Campground offers 47 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.
