  • This is the second time we've taken a family trip to Mark Twain State Park. We spent the day tubing, wake boarding, and swimming. Even though it was Labor Day weekend, the lake wasn't crowded and most...  read more »
  • Very nice place to ride around, camping, boating, state park. Nice place to go on picnics. Well keep. 
  • Went to one of the beaches at Mark Twain Lake and had a great time. The people there were very friendly and there to relax like us. It was a perfect day to hangout and enjoy the sunshine. 
  • Enjoyed my visit and stay. Stayed in a sleeper cabin on the puma camping loop. The cabin exceeded my expectations, it has air conditioning and plenty of space to sleep up to five or six people. It was within walking distance to the water, and I enjoyed some fishing and hiking. They have firewood purchasable on site as well as 7 and 20 pound bags of ice. Overall the trip was pretty great.
  • Great mini-vacation 2 hrs from home. Campground is well run, attended to and clean (bathrooms and grounds). Stayed at a Family Puma campground site with 2 other families, all staff is family-oriented and friendly. Kayaking, a wonderful first-time experience, offered FREE two weekends per month in summer on Tom Sawyer Lake. Naturalist outings planned at amphitheater weekly. Nice (and air conditioned) M.Twain museum on grounds to visit; HUGE sandy beach, plenty of places to fish and picnic! Few cons: no soap in bathrooms all weekend, one electric outlet dysfunctional even after electrician came out, and the campsite seemed small for being advertised as "family" for 12 people. Even with these details, no major complaints! We will be back!
  • Nice visitor center and museum. Friendly staff. Beautiful lake and campground. Remote location.
  • Fun for the whole family. Keep an eye out for any warnings or advisories at the beach.
  • A long ways away from anywhere... Worth a detour only if you have time and patience to get there. Even though the house is technically the original birth house, its current setting underneath a curved dome is out of place and odd, like you're looking at a recreated museum piece. But the video about Mark Twain's life is interesting and the original "Tom Sawyer" manuscript on display is cool.
