We loved this state park! The cabin was much better than expected. The music on Saturday night was wonderful, and the restaurant was good as well. We will definitely be back.

The Ozark folk crafts and music are alive at the folk center. We visit every couple of years and always have a good time. If you like old Ozark Folk music, this is definitely the place to go!
