Withrow Springs State Park
In the heart of the scenic Ozark Mountains and cradled by the bluffs of the War Eagle Creek, Withrow Springs State Park is a peaceful setting of unspoiled natural beauty and many outdoor recreational choices.
Camping enthusiasts will enjoy the park's campground nestled in shaded woods that reflect the seasonal natural beauty of spring, summer, fall and winter in the surrounding hardwood forest. Choose from 30 Class AAA (with water, up to 50 amp service, and sewer hookups). Each campsite can accommodate either an RV and/or a tent. The campground also features a modern, barrier-free bathhouse.
Since the War Eagle Creek flows through the park, this mountain stream's waters are easily accessed for outdoor recreation on the water. Canoeing is a popular activity and floaters can put in at a point on the creek inside the park. Enjoy a leisurely float and take in the natural beauty of the surrounding Ozark Mountain scenery. Go float fishing for catfish, bream, perch, or bass. Canoe and kayak rentals are available in the park by appointment as these rentals are dependent on the War Eagle Creek's water level. Check with the park on flow levels and to reserve your canoe or kayak.
Hikers can choose from the park's one-mile War Eagle Trail, 3/4-mile Dogwood Nature Trail, and 1 1/4-mile Forest Trail. Each trail will lead you through the distinctive natural beauty of the Ozarks.  [NOTE:  On April 16, 2010, the park's War Eagle Cave on the War Eagle Trail closed. This temporary emergency closure was necessary to protect this cave from the possibility of contamination from the White-nose Syndrome, a fungus that has killed millions of hibernating bats in the eastern half of the United States.].
