Powder Mill NF campground is located on the banks of the Current River nestled among the Ozark Forest. It provides basic primitive campsites. Fishing, canoeing, and hiking are popular activities in the area. Powder Mill has eight non-electric family sites that can accommodate a maximum of six persons and two tents each. These are on a first come, first served basis. Family sites are $12.00 per night (as of Aug 2014) There are no electric hook-ups at this campground. Most campsites at Powder Mill are on the water. Powder Mill is convenient to the Ozark Trail which passes by on the far side of the river. Access is across the Route 106 bridge. Another trail leads about a half mile to the beautiful Blue Spring, widely considered one of the nicest of the Ozark springs.
Came here by accident because the GPS drop for Blue Springs actually routes you here. The camp sites looked decent but sadly the restrooms were already closed for the season. So if you are planning on primitive camping here to enjoy the fall colors and the river, keep in mind, you will be fending for yourself when it comes to the restroom. The Blue Hole is worth the hike up from here. There is open restrooms there, but I would advise using only if it's an emergency.
Returned again. Nice campground, nice restrooms, not just a pit toilet, water available at camp.
Powder Mill is nice primitive campsite right on the banks of the river. Nicer restrooms than you generally have for this primitive a camp site. Blue Spring, eight largest in the state is a short 1 mile hike one way. For primitive tent camping this is a nice site. Many, many things to do in the area. Great canoeing, historic sites, hikes galore. And yes, the water is that blue.
