Ray Behrens Campground COE

Location: Center, Missouri

Webpage: Corps of Engineers

General Description: Ray Behrens Corps of Engineers Campground is on the southeastern shore of Mark Twain Lake on the Salt River.  A variety of campsites are available, all with electric hookups.  Many of the sites also have full hookups.  All of the campsites are back-in but are all spacious with plenty of shade.  Amenities include bathroom/showers, playground, and marina.



1) This is one of three COE campgrounds on Mark Twain Lake, so I can only speak of this campground.  Ray Behrens Campground is divided up into three loops, two of which have reserveable sites.   Thankfully, one of the loops was first-come first-served since there were no reserveable sites for the weekend when I looked a month before.  Most of these sites had full hookups and on Monday there were a number of sites available.  The site we choose had a lot of room between sites and was very nice.  It had a paved pad and gravel porch.


2) The bathrooms were very modern and clean.  The volunteers operating the check-in booth were very nice and gave us a lot of pointers about things to do in the area.
