Good location for exploring St. Louis

This campground is fairly close to downtown and very close to lots of shopping. A great place to stay to stock up on supplies before heading west. We stayed 2 nights to have a day to visit the Gateway Arch. The pool and playground seemed nice even though we didn’t use them. Nice dog park for smaller dogs. Several cabins are available along with RV sites. The tent sites are next to a river under large trees. Plenty of spaces for big rigs. Our site was no very level but nothing our auto-leveling couldn’t handle.


This was such a nice and serene setting. Close to the city and local attractions, yet surrounded by nature none the less. The family atmosphere at this campground brings a smile to your face and the amenities are clean and in order. We loved it. It will be even better when they invent silent trains.

Not to bad.

Not to bad. The bathroom down the hill was in dire need of a remodel when we stayed here in 2019 and be prepared for a lot of noise from the busy main road and passing trains in the near distance.

Love this place

This campground is only 30 minutes from where I live but I love going here. It has nice spacious campsites. Clean bathrooms and shower. Nice big common areas. A nice big lake for fishing. It’s a real pretty place to just get away for a weekend or so.

Large Campground, Good Amenities

“Hazlet” has over 300 sites with electric hook-ups and 30+ tent sites. It is a popular destination for locals and those nearby during the summer and fall, but if you are able to choose your site early, there are quite a few options that will offer more privacy. Some sites sit directly on Carlyle Lake.

There are many walking trails in and around the campground, plus a pool and campground store at the entrance. The bathrooms and showers are pretty well maintained and spread out well throughout the large campground.

Very nice facility

Spent two nights. Office Staff was super friendly. Went above and beyond for service. Separate handicap shower facilities are always a huge plus for us. (Hubby is blind.) Bathrooms were clean.

Thirty minute drive into see Gateway Arch. Not a bad swap for some peace and quiet. Lots of shade and pull thrus. Pool was out of order while we were there, but those things happen. We would go back again for a longer stay.

Good campground

It was a nice campground with tree cover over most of it. Our site was gravel to park on with grass around it. Close to train tracks and highway, but didn’t notice with AC on in the camper. Close to 6 flags.

Small fishing campground

Small 13 site campground at the Spillway, 1/2 mile past McNair campground. Sites are near the water. Not very private as the day use area is here too. Lots of fisherman

Nice campground on the lake.

Nice clean, quiet campground. Lots of fisherman. Spaces are decently spaced. No trash. Sites have electric. $18night

Great American Camp Out!

We camped for the first time at Washington state park.  We had a great time.  The campsites are super clean and well maintained.  The host and superintendent were very friendly and answered all our questions.  Make sure to lock up your food at night.  Luckily we stored ours in the car…there were some very eager raccoons that tried their best to find a meal at our sight.  We would recommend this campground to families looking for easy camping.
