Shawnee Creek Campground, Eminence

Shawnee Creek Campground in Eminence is one of our favorite spots to river wallow. Shhh. Don't tell anyone! A local told us where it was many years ago when I inquired about where we could sit in the water without crowds of people. Let's keep it without crowds for the next time I go back! From Eminence at the four way intersection, go east on Highway 106 for 2.9 miles until you see a sign on the left for Shawnee Creek Campground.  Turn left at the gravel road (106-211) and follow for 1.7 miles until you see the campground and the river. 

On October 28, 2018, we went to the Shawnee Creek Campground early in the morning to see the horses. We never did see them, but I got a few fun photos. We did see the Wild Horses of Shannon County the evening before at sunset and you can see those photos here. These are the fields by the creek and campground where we were looking for the horses.

They made for some beautiful photos of the sunlight.

This is my first peak of the field from where we parked.

I believe we went to Shawnee Creek more than once that weekend. These photos indicate Highway 11 on October 29, 2018, which is the road leading to the campground. What a beautiful country road scene.


These are two photos from 2014 of my first granddaughter wallowing in the river with Grandma, with the beloved mountains in the background. I do not share many family photos online, but this one is special to me. I love that she is loving doing what Grandma loves to do.

Here are some photos from August 20, 2012. This is our favorite view with the tree overhanging.

Here is the view looking in the other direction. I just love the little classic Ozark mountain. I do love them!

This is called river wallowing! Our favorite thing to do! When someone canoes by we usually chat with them. You can see where we parked the vehicle to the left of the chairs. This is also where the campground is located.

There was a rope swing on location too.

This is a shot up the tributary creek. The campground is there to the left.
