5 Reviews of Horseshoe Lake State Park Recreation Area
No Camping

There is a homemade sign that says no camping. I wish we would have known that before we got here. As far as I could tell the website said it’s open.

It’s ok

There is no electric or running water. The lake is ok but no swimming, boating and fishing only.

Lovely location

Peaceful tent camping on Walkers Island at $8 per day.

Horseshoe Lake Recreation Area

Nice little campground close to down town St Louis (when the leaves are down I bet you can see the Arch). Campsites are nice and flat with the standard picnic tables and fire rings. No showers, but decent toilets. The nice thing is the campground is staffed by rangers in the day, and at night they sometimes take a security swing through the campground. Nice lake for fishing and boating.

This is a great place when the geese are migrating thru, I really hope to be back here some day!
