Berryman Recreation Area is the old campsite of Civilian Conservation Corps Company 3733. The picnic pavilion here is dedicated to the men who worked at the camp in the 1930s. Berryman Campground is a wonderful place to hang out. A mixture of mature pines and hardwoods shades all the sites, and on rainy days you can walk over to the picnic shelter to continue reading, writing, relaxing, or shooting the breeze with fellow campers. There’s a nice open lawn near the shelter for sun worshippers, who enjoy soaking up some sun even on those cool and crisp fall days that are such a delight in the Ozarks. The lawn is a superb place for stargazing too, making Berryman a great camp for observing special astronomical events such as comets, lunar eclipses, or one of the several meteor showers that light up the heavens each year.
