“For those looking for a camping experience away from the "party" crowd.”
Reviewed 4 August 2013

We go camping and go on a float trip almost every summer, and we try not to stay at the same place twice to keep it exciting. However, I have 2 children, and we have had a hard time finding a campground that doesn't cater to the 21+ (read: drunk and partying all weekend long) crowd. Cedar camp was wonderful. We sat out by the campfire until 11PM or later all weekend, without having to yell over boomboxes, drunken frat boys, or anything else, which is quite the opposite experience we have had with almost every other campground we've been to in this area. Additionally, the staff was very nice and went out of their way to make everything enjoyable, down to delivering a pancake breakfast to your campsite on Saturday morning. My husband was having a hard time getting our campfire going, and the manager happened to see it and brought us out some cardboard to help. It was a great family weekend. The only down side I would give is that it is quite a ways down a gravel road, but we have a 4x4 truck, so wasn't a big deal for us. Also, it is a little ways from the big rivers for float trips, but I'll take the longer drive to the floating facilities to be able to get some peace and quiet at night!

Cedar Camp, on the Little Niangua River deep in the Missouri Ozarks, is a rustic resort that caters to boaters and rafters, fishermen, and mobile campers. The camp consists mostly of campsites with hookups, a fisherman's cabin, maybe one or two more primitive cabins, and one guest lodging that is there just for the city folk. And that is a permanently parked camper furnished with all the comforts of home: microwave, fridge, stove with cooking utensils, full bath, air-conditioning, queen-size bed, and a comfortable living space.

This is a wonderful place for the city person to just get away for a time, enjoy the quiet of the Ozarks woods, float down the river on your choice of watercraft, and return at the end of the day to the comforts you are used to. Go mid-week if you want to have the campground to yourself. Hear the coyotes at night and awake the following morning to the rooster on a nearby cattle ranch. Stay on a weekend when the camp fills up with campers. Get a group together on a weekend night to go to the fish fry at the Old Town Cafe in the nearest town, Mack's Creek, eight miles away.

Karen, the camp's manager, is a gracious host who will visit just to make sure everything is fine. She cooks up breakfast for you Saturday morning and has free coffee any time on the weekends.

Room Tip: There's just one trailer w/ full amenities, so book early
