Mark Twain Lake Water Level Report



Elk Fork Campground is located on the Elk Fork arm of the glorious Mark Twain Lake 5 miles east Paris Missouri. It is well known for its lake views with access to nearby boat ramps, many beautiful trees, clean fully equipped campsites and a well known area of the lake for excellent crappie, catfish and bass fishing.  

We offer limited primitive tent sites as well as annual full hook-up RV camping sites, a handy convenience store stocked with lots of essential (and non-essential) goods as well as  propane, ice, and beer plus a bait shop with live bait, and tempting lures for crappie, catfish & bass for the angler.
We stock OZARK Rods, SWARM BAIT and all of your favorites .
Conveniently close to the boat launch for the Elk Fork arm of the lake, the camp sites have beautiful views of the lake, with a fishing pond stocked with catfish, bass, hybrid bluegill & crappie just waiting for your hook. What a great place to bring the kids!  Be sure to visit our News of the Camp page for local highlights, lots of fishing photos and a schedule of events for the campground festivities.

We also have a boat storage building so you can keep your boat under shelter and close to the launch ramp. Outside storage is also available. The campsites are leased on a yearly basis, enabling campers to build relationships that will last a lifetime. Imagine yourself here, enjoying family and friends in a worry free setting that will allow you to park your RV in a safe, secure family owned and operated campground that prides itself in being " one of the best campgrounds at the lake".
