Castor River Ranch Campground offers a peaceful, private river-front camping experience in a natural setting yet has immediate access to state highway DD.This is a rustic family campground with a relaxing vibe on the spring-fed Castor River in the Ozark Mountains, outside the Village of Marquand, Missouri. 

We offer primitive tent sites with a covered picnic table and fire pit/cooking grill. 

Float the river (canoe, kayak, tube), spend the day at the beach, or fish for an elusive award-winning small mouth bass. In addition to river activities, we have 140 acres of hiking trails that contain a piece of the old Missouri Pacific Railroad bed and a tunnel dating back to the 1800's. CRRC also has fenced pasture and water available for those equestrians who prefer to go camping with their horses. Enjoy award-winning wine and cuisine at nearby Durso Hills Winery and Bistro.

I wish we had spent our whole vacation at CRRC, because we had such a wonderful time. Our hosts Jon and Mary were so friendly and helpful, as was everyone we met there. We spent a relaxing weekend floating down Castor River and taking beautiful hikes through on well-kept trails. Two highlights of the trip: picking fresh blackberries on Blackberry Trail, and the pristine bath house!

Beyond everything I expected. Jon (pronounced Yawn) and his family are more than accommodating, kind, friendly and their dogs are a hoot! They make their rounds to all the campsites to say hello. Castor River was so clear and cool during our visit July 4th weekend. We will definitely return!

If you've never experience a natural spring lazy river, Castor River Ranch Campground is the place for you. Jon and family are more than accommodating, kind and helpful. Their dogs are super friendly and the property is really clean and well designed.
