Just returned from MO. Had planned to float the Current River, as it has been many years since doing so. Recently we've been going to the Meramec and Black because they're closer. Alley Springs only had sites open that were in full sun, and it was hanging around 98 degrees. We were hot and tired, so headed up to Johnson's Shut-Ins, which we knew we loved. Half hour into setting up, the temp drops 30 degrees and a storm blows in. It decides to hang around and rain. So 24 hours later, we pulled out. No float
Johnson's Shut-Ins, site 308
Sorry you didn't get to float the river.....but the worst day camping is better than the best day at work.

Give Roaring River a try. Outside of Cassville. A nice quiet trout park, not far from Eureka Springs and War Eagle Mill, AR. Real close to Table Rock lake, which has a couple of nice Corp parks (Big M & Eagle Rock come to mind first). Between Branson and Roaring River on the southern route is Dogwood Canyon and Big Cedar Lodge, both owned by the Bass Pro people and both class places to see. Dogwood Canyon is a day use area and pay to get in. Big Cedar has the details. Lovely area and for the treat of the day in Golden, MO is the Golden Pioneer Museum. Such a treasure of items in a single out of the way place as you can ever imagine. It's a must see (closed on Tues, I think and accepts donations for admission)
You'll love it there. We did and are going back in Sept.
Camping in a Sportsmobile. How much better can it get?
Plus 1 on roaring river state park. Have caught a few trout from there. Nice campground and clean bathrooms. Trout fished at Roaring River, St. James, Montuak, and Bennet. Would like to try the white river area one time.
