We stayed in the full hookups. It’s a very uneven gravel pad to start with. The campfire sits right next to the camper and the sites are very close together. So the sites are far from glamorous. But there were two close by trails that were very nice. They had offered a class about Mo snakes and a class on how to build fire with flint that our kids really enjoyed. We didn’t make it to the beach because we enjoyed the creek so much. The kids loved using the net to catch small fish and crawdads, throwing rocks and playing in the water. It was fun to explore. So 3 stars cause the campsites were not great but lots of fun to be had on the actual campgrounds! We will still be going back.
This is a perfect place to enjoy with the family. Plenty of gorgeous campsites and a lake to swim and kayak! And if you need a place to camp with your horse they have an entire equestrian section. Close to St. Louis but far enough out to enjoy peace and quiet!
Only about a hour northwest of St. Louis. This is a great park to go to without driving for hours. There is plenty of nature to enjoy! There is a lake for swimming. There is also several nice hikes.
A state park with FULL Hook-ups! Cuivre River state park is a nice hidden treasure for a weekend getaway from St. Louis. Great trails to hike and a sandy beach to dip in for a quick swim. Did I mention full hook-ups in a state park. It would make a great return place for a weekend in the fall to see the colors as the trees turn. I would highly suggest getting a screen house to enjoy the evenings outdoors to keep the gnats and mosquitos away.
The campground has a lot of very nice campsites. Some are close enough to be near others, which is nice when you are camping with friends. There are also sights that are a bit more sectioned off from neighboring campsites. There are multiple trails, but my favorite is the one around the lake. Be prepared for it to take a little longer than map states if you stop to look at things and take pictures. Trails are well marked. There is a beach to swim and play in the lake. They rent kayaks if you want to get out and explore the lake.
Nice place! Good balance of shade and no shade spots. Don’t fee as though you are on top of everyone and even the generators won’t be too loud tonight. Little buggy and gotta watch for ticks, but this is camping and you are in nature.
We've been to most of the parks in the stl region, this is one of our favorites. Great hiking, boating, fishing, everything can be found here.
They are spread out and truly feel like you are camping with out being right on top of each other
My family has been here multiple times and is one of the cleanest, nicest parks we have camped at. They always have great programs running too. The last time we we t they had a birds of prey presentation
This time we went with our Cub Scout group and stayed at one of the family sites. There was a water main breaks so the outhouse was our only option for restrooms and no clean water. The overall grounds were great and liked the ability to walk down to the lake from the the campsites.
