Campbell Point is a popular campground that sits along the White River Arm of Table Rock Lake, near Shell Knob, Missouri. It is an Army Corp of Engineers campground, which offers 76 camping sites, and one large group picnic shelter. Most of the sites near the water appear more spacious, but have less shade. Sites have the standard picnic table, fire ring, and lantern post. Most sites appear fairly level. Cell reception (Verizon) was good.
Amenities include hot showers, flush toilets, drinking water, a dump station, electric hookups, swim area, full-service marina, boat ramp, playground and volleyball court. I am told that the beach is sandy, but when I was there, the beach was flooded due to heavy spring rains.
Travel through Shell Knob, MO, on Highway 39, then turn southeast onto the Highway YY access road and follow to the campground. Latitude 36° 35′ 44.9999″ N, Longitude 93° 33′ 1.0001″ W
An infernal cloud of doom hovered over our hero and his fair maiden. Or perhaps, it was simply a cloud. An infernal, unceasing cloud. It had rained the entire day. The only thing good about infernal clouds, is that there’s no excuse to be late for dinner. And, perhaps, also for keeping the Weekender dragons at bay.
Only some fool, on an epic quest to see the world, would be traveling in weather like this.
