Watercress Recreation Area Professional Review and Guide
"Have you ever dreamed of slurping a chocolate shake while you were camping out under the open skies? Well, you can do just that at Watercress Recreation Area. It feels like it’s in the middle of nowhere, yet it’s less than a mile from downtown Van Buren. It’s a short walk to the Jolly Cone, where you can founder yourself on ice cream and then head back to your campsite to complain about how much you ate."
--Steve Henry, Best Tent Camping: Missouri and the Ozarks (Menasha Ridge Press).
