Beaver Creek runs 44 miles from Jackson Mill southwest through wooded farmland and bluffs and the Mark Twain National Forest and ends up in Bull Shoals Lake near Kissee Mills. We have float trips of various distances. 

We are located 14.7 miles into the creek so we make the perfect location whether you are going upstream to float down or starting here and floating downstream or planning a multi-day trip and need a place to stopover.

We have a country store with all those necessities to make a great time on the creek.

Mark Twain National Forest is just 5 miles away from our campground with hiking, mountain bike, ATV, and horseback riding trails.

Adjacent to the campground are scenic country roads for a relaxing walk, run, or bicycle ride. 

The pace is very slow here. We think you will come to love the quiet Ozark countryside as much as we do!
