are many different activities available at the campground. In the playing field, you can choose from horseshoes, volleyball,

fun playing volleyball, horseshoes or other activities in the sports field.

View is home to some of the finest genuine folk music to be found anywhere! There are several regularly scheduled music shows
around town, as well as the Ozark folk Center, host to National competitions & folk craft grounds.
There are six
festivals,& several other events held in and around Mountain View. You'll really enjoy the informal gathering of musicians
around the town square on almost any fair weather evening, especially on week-ends. If you play, bring your instrument and
join in. If you don't play, just enjoy!

Mtn View Chamber of Commerce You'll find the kind of old time, small town, friendly atmosphere that most of the rest of the country doesn't even know
still exists! Here, it's not just for show, it's for real! Come see for yourself!
In addition to the great music available in and around town, you can take two walking tours of
one of the best cave systems in the country at Blanchard Caverns. For the more adventurous, try the Wild Cave tour. Hard hats,
lamps & knee pads provided. You will be crawling! (Advance reservations are required for the wild cave tour.)
The Ozark National Forest is just across the creek! There are miles of specific use trails developed
for you. Hiking trails are restricted to hikers only. (I know that if you went to the trouble of hiking back into an area,
you don't want someone buzzing by you on an ATV! It won't happen here.) One of the trails starts just around the bend in the
creek, and follows the North Sylamore Creek up for about 15 miles with connections at Blanchard Springs and Gunner Pool. There
are many other trails to take also, easy to challenging.
Enjoy the peace & quiet!
If you enjoy Mountain Biking, you're going to love this place! The Forest Service is currently
developing over 80 miles of trails devoted to mountain biking. These trails offer loops that range from moderate to as challenging
as you want it. Along the trails you'll enjoy spectacular views of the surrounding mountains as well as the White River Valley.
This is a new trail system, & from what I've seen, it will be as good as any in the country. You can be among the first to
come out and try it. (Before everyone else finds out about it!)
you would like to go for a horseback trail ride, there is a stable just down the road. You can choose a 1, 2 hour or longer
ride. You can enjoy the sun on your back, the sounds of the birds and the flowing creek while relaxing to the rythmic gait
of the horse doing all the work!
If you like, bring your own horse!
