Camping

Campers Have 'Smore Fun!

Camping at Table Rock Lake is a great way to experience the natural beauty of the area.  You will find private campgrounds that have facilities from primitive to full hook-ups for tents, trailers and RV's.  In addition to our private campgrounds, the US Army Corps of Engineers operates public campgrounds around the lake.

Camping Tips for the Table Rock Lake area:

  • Use local firewood.  To keep pests not native to the Ozarks out of our forests, you will be required to use only wood from this area.
  • Public lake access.  Many of our Corps operated camping areas and private campgrounds will have day-use facilities that include boat launches, swim beaches and pavilions.  These facilities will most likely also require a small day-use fee.
  • Boat slip rentals.  Some of our private campgrounds will have docks available where you can rent a slip for use during your visit.
  • Book early.  For holidays and popular times of the year, we recommend booking your camping spot as early as possible.
