Something not right?

Description

Open May 1st until September 1st

State park campground, nice and quiet near St. Louis. I arrived late on Memorial Day so no one was at the park office. Lots of spots open even on a holiday. Water, pit toilets, and some other minimal facilities. Adequate AT&T signal. I’m in a camper van but you could fit big rigs here easily.

Bugs! Like I've never seen before. We were eaten alive both in and out of our vehicle. Otherwise it was great for only $8. There were a few others there while we're were, but not many. More vehicles driving around late than I would have thought. A couple raccoons were wandering from campsite to campsite. We were able to shoo one away easily. A water spigot was available and pit toilets. We arrived after the office closed so we took a registration slip with us but forgot to bring it back to the office before we set up the vehicle and couldn't move it. Some rangers came through in the morning and we were able to pay them.

Report Check-In

Nice spot in the woods, there are 26 total sites and a handful of pit toilets spread throughout. There is also water spigots spread throughout, I was a bit confused by the previous post here and thought there wouldn’t be any so I topped off my supply at a rest stop before arriving.
There was only 5 others staying here when I rolled in at 9:30pm so we were all spread out.

Decent spots and only $8!. Lots of space between each. Checked in at front office. No water at site but available at various areas. No electric. Outhouse is what it is.
Mosquitos are fun this time of year and all the rain they’ve had. But hey… we aren’t boondocking in a parking lot so there is that. Don’t get me wrong a parking lot can be good too.

$8 sites. Gates stay open all night. They check early in the morning to see if you paid the fee (before 8am, can’t say exactly how early tho). Campground closes after Sep 30th

$8… yes, you read that right! Large, flat, grassy sites surrounded by beautiful trees that will accommodate any size rig. 26 sites but lightly used. We stayed two nights and only saw two other campers each night. The low $8 fee is for everyone; no senior pass needed. It’s dry camping with no water or hook ups but pit toilets and trash cans are provided as well as a picnic table and fire ring in each site. 20 minutes to downtown St. Louis. There is also a free dump station for campers but no potable water. This is the best deal in town when visiting St. Louis!

Great value in this campground! There was hardly anyone here on a Wednesday evening in September. The sites are level with grass and trees behind them. Amazingly, the fee is still $8. There is a dump station included in that price, but without potable water. We are only about 15 minutes from downtown St. Louis so this place is a gem.

This is not a legitimate spot. It is a parking area en route to the official campground. Pay your $8 and get a ice site with picnic table and fire ring plus a pit toilet. Register at the park office on the way in.

Very quiet and nice simple campground. The sites are very big with trees and fire pits + tables. Pit toilets ok. 8$ per night for an RV, good deal pretty closed from St Louis (15 min drive). The campground is not directly on the lake though.

Report Check-In

Shortly after midnight we were kicked out by the park police saying the park is only open until 10 pm, so we had to look for another spot.

We sleep at the campground for 8$ a night
It’s clean and the lots are large
Little bit of nose for the train on the other side of the lake
