“Nice Campground; Beautiful Area”

Overall Rating

This was our first time staying at Silver Mines Recreation Area. There are three campgrounds which are part of the RA and lie within the Mark Twain National Forest. We stayed in the Riverside campground which included 30 amp electric. The other two campgrounds are primitive though there is room for small rv's.

The campground is not large but has wonderful sites which are large, water is available and there is a privy. Each site has a picnic table and fire ring. Our site #9 was one of the largest campsites we have been on with plenty of room for a small trailer and multiple tents. There are pads available for larger trailers. Plenty of shade

The Recreation Area has the St. Francois river running through it, which is beautiful as well as several hiking trails. We love this area of Missouri which is along the Madison and Iron County border with plenty of things to do within an hour drive.
