The Ozark Mountains are a magical place, occupying a vast swath of southern Missouri and northern Arkansas. In a region famed for its flatness, the Ozarks rise above it to provide expansive views and excellent recreational opportunities. Arrowhead Point RV Park and Campground sits in the northwest corner of the Ozarks, about an hour's drive north of Springfield and two hours' drive south of Kansas City.The RV campground has several dozen sites, each with full hookups for your rental RV. It also offers clean restrooms, showers, and laundry facilities to keep your clothes clean during your stay in the Ozarks. If you’re an angler, there’s a small, private fishing pond to enjoy, and it doesn’t require a state fishing license to use. Have a little work to catch up on? There’s WiFi throughout the park. Most people come to the park to disconnect from technology though, and prefer to wander the hiking trails that branch out from their campsite.One of the best things about campsites at Arrowhead Point RV Park and Campground is how inaccessible they are to the wider world. It’s over half an hour's drive to the nearest interstate, so you’ll seldom encounter traffic while traveling the country roads around the park, and you’ll see even fewer humans on the nearby trails. It’s definitely a vacation spot for campers seeking solitude.

The Ozark Mountains dominate the landscapes of southern Missouri, but their presence is unlike that of the high peaks of the Rockies or even the more rounded features of the Appalachians. They’re highly eroded remnants of a much older mountain range. When hiking, elevation gains are much less pronounced, making them a better fit for those wanting a less strenuous outing.The Ozarks are also famed for their fishing opportunities, and Stockton Lake is only a short drive away when you are RV camping at Arrowhead Point RV Park and Campground. This large lake is popular for water skiing, sailing, and even scuba diving. If you want to get out on the water, consider renting a kayak at one of the outfitters between the campground and the lake.Birdwatchers might enjoy a trip up to Schell Osage Conservation Area on Schell Lake. There are some fantastic nature trails along the water and quite a few different species of songbirds and waterfowl to identify. It’s a fairly remote location, and will seldom be crowded.For an outdoor adventure with a dose of history, make your way to Osage Village State Historic Site, about 40 minutes' drive northwest of Arrowhead Point. In the late 18th century, the area was inhabited by a Native American tribe living in a couple of hundred lodges. Today, walking trails meander through the hilltop site, and several informative signs inform visitors about its former inhabitants.
The closest town to Arrowhead Point RV Park and Campground is El Dorado Springs. You’ll find a few restaurants there, including a Mexican eatery, a few homestyle cafes, and a couple of the requisite fast-food chains. There are several gas stations in town; however, to fuel up your Osceola motorhome rental at a truck stop, you’ll need to drive over the city of Nevada on I-49. If you want to catch a flick, seeing it at the town’s historic Opera House Theater would be a special experience.One of the only major attractions in El Dorado Springs is the Wayside Inn Museum. Housed inside the town’s first operating hotel, the museum is a fascinating look at small-town life told room by room in this multifunctional building. The rooms look as they did in the hotel’s heyday, complete with period clothing, and there’s even a dentist’s office with equipment on display.The town’s biggest event is the Founders Day Picnic, which happens in late July every year, and includes musical performances, food vendors, a carnival, a talent show, and tons of games for the kids. It's not often that you can witness this kind of small-town community spirit in action.Race fans should check out the Nevada Speedway near the truck stop in Nevada. It’s a small, local track with local drivers. Seeing a race there feels nothing like a NASCAR event, with no crowds and drivers who are just out there for the love of the sport. It’s a real treat when you book an RV in St. Clair County, Missouri.Somewhat surprisingly, the Ozarks also have a fairly bountiful fruit crop. If you’re interested in doing some agrotourism while RV camping in the area, there are a couple of orchards and vineyards you could visit. All of them have delicious samples of their products, and you can learn about the process involved with making them. Some goodies from these farm stores also make great gifts for friends and family back home.
