Overview

Old Highway 86 is a spacious and sunny campground that sits along the White River Arm of Table Rock Lake in the rolling Missouri countryside.

Recreation

Whether on water or land, Old Highway 86 Campground offers visitors countless recreational activities. Picnicking, swimming, scuba diving, boating, fishing, hiking and wildlife viewing are all popular pastimes at the park. Many campsites are adjacent to the waters edge, and the remaining campsites are only a short walk away. Built on a peninsula, this park has water on three sides. Visitors can find plenty of room to fish from shore. While the lake boasts an abundance of crappie, catfish, and bluegill, Table Rock is most famous for bass, and is acclaimed as one of the best bass fishing lakes in this hemisphere. Table Rock Lakeshore Trail, about 2 miles long, runs from the Dewey Short Visitor Center to the Table Rock State Park Marina. During the spring hikers will see dogwood, serviceberry and redbud trees in bloom as well as many wildflower species. During the autumn months, visitors are treated to nature's colorful fall foliage. The trail also offers beautiful views of Table Rock Lake. Other hiking and mountain biking opportunities are available at the Mark Twain National Forest, parts of which are easily accessible from the campground. Click here for more information.
