Beaver Creek Canoe Rental

See Photo Location

Open April through mid-November

Located on beautiful Beaver Creek in the Ozarks, our campground has over 1600 ft of water front and is situated between two spring-fed creeks. A family-friendly place with RV/Elec sites, tent camping sites, cozy log cabins, a 12-person log bunkhouse, sheepherder wagons, and clean restrooms.

We offer canoe/kayaks and pedal boats rentals. As the only outfitter on this creek, we serve both leisure floaters and fishermen. Beaver Creek has Small and Large Mouth Bass, Goggle-eye, Catfish, Perch, Garr and many others.

A step back in time, the convenience store, originally built in 1888, has a beer/liquor, propane sales/exchange, bait, tackle, camp supply, souvenirs, grocery, snacks, and ice.

We’ve hosted guests from Kansas City, St Louis, Springfield in Missouri, Kansas, Illinois, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Louisiana and some from as far as Texas to enjoy spring-summer-fall floating & camping, fall hunting, fall & spring hiking, horseback riding, and winter forestry work.

Hikers and mountain bikers have access to the Mark Twain National Forest encompassing over 1 million acres of beautiful public land. This National Forest is just a quick 5 miles from the campground, with over 750 miles of trails for hiking, mountain biking, horseback riding, hunting, and ATVing and so much more!  A local equine center just 5 miles away offers horseback trail rides along Beaver Creek.

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