HAW CREEK FALLS

Posted on June 11 , 2016

Haw Creek Falls is not very tall, but this is a beautiful, cascading waterfall that also serves as the perfect backdrop to one of the better campgrounds in the state.

If you need a place to camp before heading out into the Hurricane Creek Wilderness area, Haw Creek Falls Campground is a great place to pitch a tent and is located just 1.6 miles west of the Big Piney bridge on HWY 123.  Located directly on the Ozark Highlands Trail, Haw Creek campground provides nine primitive campsites. The small falls and assortment of large boulders here on this beautiful creek provide a nice setting while you camp, and the rushing water is always a welcoming sound after climbing in your tent for the night. The creek can be seen from several of the campsites here, as they are all tucked away in thick rows of trees near the water. Adequate campsite spacing also provides privacy for campers. There is a $4 fee to camp here. The campgrounds will sometimes be closed when the creek is flooded. As an alternative, head up to Fairview Campgrounds, located about a mile north of the intersection of HWY 7 and 123
