Highway 221 ends at Pilot Knob.  At Pilot Knob take Highway 21 South (left) to Lesterville. Just as you arrive in Lesterville, look for Lenny's convenience store on your left.  Turn left at Lenny's on to County Rd. 342 (Peola Road). When you get to another Peola road sign telling you to turn right, DON'T TURN RIGHT AND GO OVER THE NEW BRIDGE. KEEP GOING STRAIGHT AHEAD ON THE GRAVEL ROAD.  If you go straight ahead the road turns into Hyatt's Creek Road.  You will take a sharp turn to the right at the low water bridge over the river.  Watch for the Bearcat signs and follow along the river for 3 miles to Bearcat Campground.  Call us for more information 573-637-2264.  We'll be happy to give you directions from other areas.  DO NOT USE MAPQUEST FOR DIRECTIONS AFTER YOU GET CLOSE TO LESTERVILLE.  THE DIRECTIONS AS YOU GET CLOSE TO LESTERVILLE ARE WRONG.  IT WILL LEAD YOU ON A WILD GOOSE CHASE!
