Redding Recreation Area

Area Status: Open

The Redding Campground is a beautiful setting for an outdoor getaway. It sits right next to the Wild and Scenic Mulberry River and is surrounded by forest. Redding offers up a rock canoe launch and river access which is handicap accessible. A nice bath house with flush toilets and warm showers, a well water system with spouts dispersed throughout the campground, and access to the Spy Rock and Ozark Highland Trail (OHT) is what makes Redding such a desirable place to spend the night, the weekend, or even a week.
