Hero: Gunner Pool Road
small-sr Icon
In the heart of the Ozark – St Francis National Forest, Gunner Pool Road leads to one of the best swimming holes around. Sylamore Creek runs right through Gunner Pool Recreation Area with camping for the low cost of $10 per night in a rustic, primitive campground complete with pit-toilets, picnic tables, and grills. There are no water or electric sites, but water is available on site. There are also several off-road free primitive campsites along Gunner Pool Road. Sylamore Creek still runs at a very cool temperature in the summer heat for a nice cooling wade or dip, complete with fish and tadpoles. There are hiking trails along this road as well. Gunner Pool Road is a great place to see deer, turkey, squirrels, and occasionally a black bear. A very cool one-lane bridge crosses Sylamore Creek.
