Welcome to Howler--the Midwest's Premier Mountain Bike Park! Hospitality means everything to us and we would be honored to have you as a guest on our downhill trails or a guest to the Ozark Mountains looking for a great place to stay--or both! We think we've got some surprises in store for you when you get here. You'll find us located just off Highway 65 in the beautiful Ozark Mountains. We're seven minutes from Branson, one of the busiest tourist destinations in the Midwest, but take the five-minute ride or walk down to Base Camp and you'll feel miles away from it all. Howler is imagined, designed, and maintained by riders who love our unique terrain and wanted to pull the best from it. Our trails are built with all skill levels in mind with a clear goal of rider progression. But Howler Bike Park Stays isn't just for riders! We've got all kinds of things to do for riders and non-riders alike! Start your day in Base Camp, the hub of activity at Howler. If you need a caffeine kick to get you started, we've got you covered with a specialty coffee drink, blended, or smoothie at Howler Coffee Shop! And, Chef Dustin is now serving breakfast with three delicious options to power you up for your day! Around noon and throughout the day, you can enjoy Chef's insanely-delicious food at the Growl Grill. Stop in the Welcome Center for bike passes, Howler merch, and bike gear. Are you shredding with us and need a new tube or tire change? We have got you taken care of in Howler Bike Co. next to the Welcome Center. We have beer and wine available at the Growl Grill, and you’re welcome to take your purchases to your tent to enjoy! New in Spring 2023, is our Skills Park and our Children's Play Area-complete with a mini pump track for Stryders or small bikes--and a beautiful cedar swing set! We also have a mile round trip Hiking Trail through the woods where you can see glimpses of riders shredding the mountain trails. Feel like a break at the top of the hike? We've got a picnic table so you can enjoy the scenery and eat some mouth-watering food from the Growl Grill! We also have our all-new bathrooms and showers, complete with shampoo/body wash and hair dryers. And you can keep all your necessary items near you while you ride with our all-new lockers.

Camping near Branson guide

Overview

Whether you come for the live music shows, family attractions, or natural beauty, Branson quite possibly offers something every family member can appreciate. The over-the-top lights and attractions along the Highway 76 Strip make this something of an Ozarks-style Las Vegas, but once you get out into the rolling hills or on the clear waters of the regional lakes, you’ll find the true heart of Branson, which has brought campers to this Missouri tourist mecca for over a century. Branson offers a wide array of camping options, with plentiful RV parks, glamping getaways, state parks, and Corps of Engineers campgrounds.

Where to go

A Trio of Regional Lakes

Branson’s three largest lakes each has a personality all its own. Table Rock Lake is where the action is, popular with boaters and watersport-lovers. Its clear waters stretch from the center of town out into quieter coves surrounded by forested hillsides. Near historic downtown Branson, the chilly waters of Lake Taneycomo run behind the Branson Landing entertainment district. For a peaceful retreat, head to Bull Shoals. Many of the region’s most desired camping locales are on the shores of this trio of lakes, with RV campsites and tent sites offering lake views, easy access to the waters, and a quieter camping experience.

Springfield, Missouri

Less than an hour north of Branson lies Missouri’s third-largest city, Springfield. This is the birthplace of the original Bass Pro Shop, which was founded in 1972 and grew into one of the largest outdoor retailers in the U.S. The home shop is one of Springfield’s main attractions, with the award-winning Wonders of Wildlife Museum onsite. Private RV sites, public campgrounds, and glamping rentals are available across the region.

Eureka Springs, Arkansas

Take a scenic drive through the rollicking Ozarks hills to Eureka Springs, an hour south of Branson. Quite possibly the state’s quirkiest town, Eureka Springs has a culture all its own. Rumors of spring waters with healing properties gave the town its rise, and today, the historic downtown is surrounded by colorful Victorian homes. A number of highly rated private RV parks are found in the region, as well as public campgrounds, primarily Army Corps of Engineers parks along Beaver Lake.

When to go

Summer is the best time to go if you plan to hit the lakes, but know that summertime temperatures and humidity are often high. This is also the busiest tourist season. Spring and fall are less crowded, with fall bringing extra beauty to the Ozark mountains. Many Branson attractions are open through the winter and are less crowded, but you may encounter cold weather and winter precipitation, making this a less-than-ideal for campers.
