About Us:
Only 2 hours from St. Louis, Bearcat Getaway campground is located on the delightful, spring fed Black River in the Ozark Mountains just a little down river from Lesterville, MO. We offer camping, floating in canoes or rafts and entertainment every weekend! Whether on the campground stage or on the Black River Amphitheater stage, you'll experience some of the best regional and national bands and exciting music festivals. With over 1/2 mile of beach front and no quiet hour until 2 am, you'll have the opportunity to enjoy the music, river and friends until the wee hours or stay by your campfire in a secluded campsite, enjoy the sounds of nature and the river. . . then drift off early. . . .It's up to you. Because we own both sides of the river, your view is one of a pristine forested Ozark river bottom. Nothing gets in the way of nature, abundant wildlife and a wall of trees. Serious birdwatchers will be very impressed. Enjoy fishing, wildflowers, swimming and relaxing by the water with friends and family. We have a huge campground with varied and remote sites. Let us know what you're looking for! We can accommodate any number of your family or friends with your own private camping area. Just let us know in advance
