Blanchard Springs Recreation Area Professional Review and Guide
"Blanchard Springs Recreation Area, hidden away deep in a narrow forested valley, is one of the most beautiful campgrounds in the Ozark Mountains. Though Blanchard Springs is a popular destination, the campground is at the far end of the complex, where it’s peaceful even on the busiest weekend.
Sylamore Creek, a clear spring-fed stream, meanders through camp, paralleled by the Sylamore Creek Trail. There are two swimming holes in the creek, miles of trails to hike and mountain bike, and caverns to explore. The nearby Ozark Folk Center is a wonderful place to learn about Ozark Mountain history and traditions."
