There are lots of things to Explore in “our neck of the woods” as Al Roker would say. From quaint little towns to peaceful floating rivers, from old Grist Mills to clear and unpolluted Springs, from old downtown theaters to fresh trout delicacies. Come and explore the wide variety of beauty the Ozarks have to offer and stay with us at Ozark Mountain Springs RV Park and Cabins.
Mountain View, Missouri! The best place to begin your family’s Ozarks adventure, canoeing down one of our beautiful rivers, hiking to breathtaking ridges overlooking rolling hills and countryside, hunting down the perfect antique for your collection and taking a sip of pure relaxation at a local winery.
Tucked in the Ozark Mountains, near pristine Wilderness Areas and Spring fed streams, the City of West Plains attracts nature lovers, entrepreneurs and families searching for a small town feel with big city amenities.
As the largest city within 100 miles of south central Missouri, West Plains considers itself the heart of the Ozarks.
Mark Twain National Forest has a wide range of popular recreation opportunities. The forest has over 750 miles of trails for hiking, horseback riding, mountain biking, and motorized use. Sections of the Ozark Trail wind through the forest. Natural areas, 19 with in the boundary of the Forest, which are some of the best examples of high quality natural communities in the state. They are permanently protected and managed to preserve their natural qualities.
Ozark National Scenic Riverways is the first national park area to protect a river system. The Current and Jacks Fork Rivers are two of the finest floating rivers you’ll find anywhere. Spring-fed, cold and clear they are a delight to canoe, swim, boat or fish. Besides these two famous rivers, the park is home to hundreds of freshwater springs, caves, trails and historic sites such as Alley Mill.
In the Ozarks, things have a way of skewing into the fourth dimension. Time seems somehow out of sync: A high-speed highway slices through a farmer’s hard-cleared field and deflects the hot rays of the sun into a tumble-down log house. Once plentiful in this region of abundant water, Ozarks grist mills demonstrate the best of our interaction with the land–a natural union of the power of nature and the needs of man.
Very easy to access off US-60, long big rig friendly sites. We were only staying overnight and I asked for a site long enough that we didn’t have to unhook our toad and got just what we wanted, plenty of room. The sites are all gravel and some are close to each other, but it was not crowded on a weekday, so that was not an issue for us. Interior roads are paved and gravel, easy to maneuver in and out. Bathrooms and showers are immaculate! Showers are as big as our home shower and look pretty new. Laundry room is nice and clean as well. Free WiFi, but it only worked at the office, but that was not that far from our site. They have a Pickin’ Patio where they have music on Sat nights and a huge open field behind it for kids to play on and dogs to romp (un-fenced though). Nice walking trail back there too. Some seasonal occupants, but all were clean and tidy, no junkers. The guys that run the place are super friendly and helpful. You make a reservation on their website and they will call you back to confirm. They are not often right there to answer the phone, but when you show up to camp, they are there to check you in immediately. Even though we were close the the highway, it was still quiet. Great place to stop overnight or to stay for a while and experience the Ozark area. We camped at Ozarks Mountain Springs RV Park in a Motorhome.

Easy access off Hwy 60, but road noise not too noticeable. Easy to get in and out of our pull through site. Utilities were excellent, WiFi only at office but Verizon worked fine, minimal TV stations with antenna. John was attentive and friendly. Enjoyed the music and food Saturday night at the Pickin’ Parlor. Laundry equipment is new and reasonable. We camped at Ozarks Mountain Springs RV Park in a Motorhome.
Our Good Sam Chapter loves visiting this park. There’s a large meeting room clubhouse available in case the weather is inclement. On Saturday evenings, you can get a BBQ meal at the “Pickin Parlor” in the rear of the park before local musicians start their jam session. The music is free and always enjoyable! We camped at Ozarks Mountain Springs RV Park in a Motorhome.
