Welcome to peace, love, and floating

Devils Elbow River Safari and Campground

Family-Friendly Fun on the Big Piney River

Affordable, seasonal RV and tent camping

Imagine a day filled with sunshine and smooth water, with rugged limestone bluffs that line the riverbanks and a canopy of trees overhead. Paddle or float down 5.5 miles of the scenic Big Piney River, catch fish, relax, and enjoy the good life in Devils Elbow. Park your RV or pitch your tent in an Ozark paradise that’s perfectly made for outdoors family memories.


Float the Big Piney Your Way

Spend a lazy day on the Big Piney in the watercraft of your choice. We rent rafts, kayaks, canoes, and tubes during the most beautiful season of the year, from mid-April to mid-October. Choose a single-person tube or kayak, right up to a raft that’s big enough for your whole 8-person crew and the cooler too! Shuttle service is available.


Great Amenities

You can’t spend every minute on the river, sometimes you want to cook dinner over your fire pit, take a shower, or hike through the Ozark wilderness. You can do all those things and more when you stay at Devils Elbow River Safari and Campground.


“My first float trip was with Devils Elbow River Safari and it was a blast! All 6 of us are still talking about the memories we made that day.
Angie was very professional, we were picked up in a clean bus and taken to the drop site. It rained a little while on the trip but it made for a great adventure! Angie was there when we arrived and took photos from above. Will definitely use again next time we are in the area.”
