Set next to a 15-acre lake built by the Civilian Conservation Corps, McCormack Lake Recreation Area is a quiet and relaxing hideaway. While McCormack isn’t spectacular like many of the campgrounds in the Ozarks, it’s a peaceful, comfortable place at the end of the road. Because McCormack has only eight sites, it doesn’t get crowded and noisy, yet it’s only a short distance from the Eleven Point River and its great canoeing and fishing. McCormack Lake itself offers good angling, and great hiking and mountain biking trails leave right from your campsite. McCormack Lake is a little rustic— its toilet, for example, is an open-air fenced enclosure—but it’s a free camp, one of the last good deals in the outdoors.
