Places to go Backpacking

Welcome to our comprehensive list of places to go backpacking in the Ozarks. Use the table below to see the various places you can go backpacking.

We’ve had to search a bit to compile a list of places where backpacking is allowed in the Ozarks. We’ve managed to bring together the sites of all the various agencies covering the major trails, state parks and wildernesses.

Most of the State Parks where backpacking is allowed also provide camping facilities in a full service campground near the trailhead. Most Wildernesses have basic primitive camping facilities at the trailhead. We find this to be helpful if we’re driving a long way and will be arriving late at night.
