Hazel Creek is not fancy—it’s a quiet and restful place on a dead-end gravel road in Missouri’s Ozarks. In other words, it’s just right. Its namesake creek, a clear stream riffling over gravel bars and rock ledges, curls around the south and west sides of the camp, and oak-hickory forest lines its eastern and northern boundaries. The Ozark Trail meanders past camp, and good swimming and fishing are nearby at Council Bluffs Recreation Area. Best of all, there’s no fee for camping at this fine hideaway. Donations are welcome, though, and I strongly recommend making one. If we want laid-back jewels like Hazel Creek to stay open in tight budget times like ours, we should slip a few bucks into the donation box, right?
