There are several places to camp along the OHT. Do your research and get a guidebook (and even some terrain maps) before taking off on this one. Its not exceptionally difficult but does require some preparation. The trail is poorly maintained and overgrown in several places because all trail maintenance is volunteer through the Ozark Highlands Association. All together the trails winds its way 220 miles through the Ozarks and St. Francis National Forest. You can expect lots of nice waterfalls, old home/building sites, old railways, lovely mountain top views and and beautiful foliage.
