Eagles Nest Campground is located about 49 miles from Joplin on 40 wooded, shady acres for camping and fun. The park has two gorgeous beach areas on the Elk River, and it offers canoe, kayak, raft and tube rentals. You can enjoy an awesome river excursion on the Elk River, Big Sugar, and Indian Creeks when you stay here.
The park has clean restrooms and showers, a volleyball court, horseshoes pitch, a game room and group areas for larger gatherings. Float trips and shuttle service are available for separate fees. This truly is a river adventure park for all ages. For those who would prefer to remain on land, the park’s sandy beaches and beautiful property allow for rest and relaxation.
“We love Eagles Nest. It is the only place we go to canoe/float. The bathrooms and showers are always clean, which is GREAT! The owners are friendly and pleasant to deal with as long as you are pleasant to them. Quiet time is 11:00 PM and they lock their gates. Overall a very good family friendly campground that we would recommend to anyone!” – Isabella, Google Review
