For years we have traveled 112 through the Mark Twain National Forest and Roaring River State Park as part of our route to drive to Silver Dollar City. I would see the sign for The Sugar Camp Scenic Drive and always wondered what was down that way. In 2010, I picked up my Mom, and we just took a drive in the Fall to experiencethe Sugar Camp Scenic Drive. I highly recomend going in the Fall to see all the colors of the leaves (see my photos of this drive). Before we took the drive, I saw that the drive was featured in the Falcon Guide "Scenic Driving The Ozarks" by Don Kurz. There was alot of interesting information and a helpful map that showed that if we got on the Sugar Camp Scenic Drive off of 112, we would come out eventually on 86 in Eagle Rock. The drive is a well maintained gravel road that features Onyx Cave Picnic Area and scenic views of Radium Hollow, Cedar Creek Valley and a section of the White River. There is also a portion of this drive that features flat open areas of small limestone glades.
Nice drive. !
