    Siloam Springs State Park Campground, near Clayton, IL, is a gem for anyone looking to escape into nature. This place has a bit of everything, from tent and RV sites to cozy cabins. It's open year-round, so whether you're into summer hikes or winter camping, you're covered.

    One of the standout features here is the Red Oak Backpacking Trail. It's a bit of a workout, especially at the start, but the views and varied terrain make it worth the effort.

If you're more into relaxing by the water, the lake's a great spot for that too. And for those who like a bit of comfort, the campground has electric hookups, showers, and toilets.

    Pets are welcome, so feel free to bring your furry friends along. Just remember, they might have to carry their own gear if you're hitting the trails! There's also a camp store nearby for any last-minute supplies, and an Amish store close by for ice and other amenities.

    Overall, Siloam Springs offers a peaceful, scenic getaway with plenty of activities to keep you busy. Whether you're hiking, fishing, or just kicking back by the campfire, it's a spot that keeps folks coming back year after year.

    Troy, Missouri

    Cuivre River State Park is one of the state’s largest and most rugged parks! Cuivre River State Park lends a wilder, Ozarkian flavor to the otherwise predominately agricultural landscape of northern Missouri. Although not far from St. Louis, the park is a nature lover’s paradise. It is an outdoor delight to stroll through the park in the spring when flowering dogwood is in bloom or in the fall when the trees are ablaze with autumn colors.

    The park is perfect whether you want to enjoy an afternoon visit or spend a few days. Both primitive and modern campsites are available, and Lake Lincoln offers swimming, boating and fishing. The park’s wild and natural areas provide hiking, backpacking, photography and wildlife observation activities. There is also an equestrian trail with a campground for overnight stays.

    Cuivre River State Park offers reservable basic, electric and sewer/electric/water campsites, an equestrian campground, three organized group camps and a special-use camping area. Try one of the park's family campsites for a little extra space or a platform tent site for a unique camping experience.

    Pitch your tent in one of four widely spaced sites. Each site has enough room for multiple tents and includes a fire pit and picnic table. The sites are just a short walk from our shower/restroom facility. The fishing ponds are just a quarter mile walk from the campsites, and access to the numerous trails throughout our 940-acre property is directly from the campsites. While we have four designated sites, it is rare for all to be full, and likely that you'll be the only campers here most days. We are located in a very remote/rural part of Illinois in a county nestled between the Mississippi& Illinois Rivers, but only 75 miles north of downtown St. Louis. We have been included in John Shirle's"The Best in Tent Camping: Illinois."

    The McCully Heritage Project is a 940- acre environmental center located one mile south of Kampsville in beautiful and remote Calhoun County. We are a private non-profit left as the legacy of Howard and Eva McCully.
