Description

Trail of Tears Campground. Sounds like a killer band name, but you won’t find hard core rockers here (unless you bring the jams). Tucked away in the Ozark Hills, this is one of the most rugged landscapes in the state. Narrow, rocky ridge tops poetically scar the landscape, with lush green foliage slicing through. Clear, cool streams run through the forested valleys and plenty of trails are just waiting for you to explore them. Pack your gear and get trekking already!
