Current River Float Trips & Camping

We provide RV & tent camping, tube trips and cabin rental. Big Spring RV Camp is located on the banks of the spring fed, crystal clear Current River less than 1/2 mile down stream from the bridge at Van Buren, Missouri.

Our facilities are located in the heart of Missouri's Scenic Ozarks. With the recent improvements to surrounding highways, we are only a short driving distance from St. Louis, Springfield, and Sikeston.

Current River, Missouri's premier float stream, is a great place for outdoor activities in the Spring, Summer, and Fall. When it's hot, Current River tubing (float trips) is a favorite recreational activity (please see Floating Options). Other activities include swimming, fishing, hiking, sightseeing, mountain biking, jeep riding, etc.

At Big Spring RV Camp, we have short trails along the River. There are a number of other trails nearby, within the National Park and the Mark Twain National Forest.


Big Spring RV Camp is less than 4 miles upstream from where Big Spring, the largest single outlet spring in the world, gushes forth from the base of a limestone bluff and flows into Current River.

We are a family owned business established in the late 1970's. We value each customer. Stop by and visit us, you will be glad you did.

Our facilities are not subject to flash-flooding and provide excellent waterfront access for both RV and tent campers. In over 100 years Big Spring RV Camp has never experienced flooding. Come spend some time with us on the beautiful, spring-fed Current River. We promise, you''ll soon understand why our guests keep coming back!

Big Spring RV Camp is authorized within Ozark National Scenic Riverways to provide tube rentals and shuttle service.
