The park features a primitive group/special-use camping area with a fire ring and restroom facilities. Call the park for information on how to reserve this area.
The newness of Echo Bluff means that all of the facilities are clean and in working order. Camp spots are spacious, and the restaurant is great to eat and watch the sunset. Floating sinking creek is amazing, with deep pools to swim in and great fishing. The only difficult part is actually getting in to camp since the park is in such high demand. I suggest planning several months in advance. Also in close proximity to Alley Spring, which is a must see.
Established in 2016 the rv sites do not have shade, but are all concrete with great amenities. There is a beautiful lodge on the property and cabins/townhomes/hotel rooms are availble, too. A past governor had this built basically as a family rememberance and is not your typical state park.
The area is know for floating and there is live water in the park for playing. Our lab loved it!
Wild horses are in the area and three stay in this camping area. You will likely see them(or maybe almost bump in to them) when you open your door.
Fantastic wifi. No cable.
We really enjoy this park.
This campground has full amenities. Clean bathrooms and showers. Firewood available for purchase and even WiFi. The WiFi doesn’t reach the primitive campsites but that was perfect for us to unplug! It was a great place to take our kids!
We Loved staying here!!! Facilities were soooo clean and well kept. It’s a new park and it was great!! We camped at a walk in site. There was a cart available to help haul in our gear.
Friendly staff. Absolutely beautiful
Amazing scenery, spacious, peaceful. Great river access, floating, campsites are amazing except wit being new, there,are no mature trees. Great camp store, restaurant. Lodging looks amazing if you don't have a camper.
Having experienced many rustic & gravel campsites, paved campsites are a welcome change of pace. It’s a new park (opened in 2016) with amenities like (excellent) WiFi in the campground, clean bathrooms/showers, and a fully stocked camp store at the lodge. The staff was very pleasant and helpful. While there is not much seating in the restaurant dining room, the patio area has plenty of space for the warmer months.
There is a large, modern playground for kids to enjoy and pavilions to grab some shade. The creek is a short walk from the most areas of the park.
As time goes by, programs would be a welcome addition to the park - maybe even some geocaching or scavenger hunts. A small band of wild horses roam the park, but all we saw was evidence that they had been there.
All in all, a great experience.
Missouris newest state park was a huge disappointment. The campground is void of all trees!! in the summer there would not relief from the sun if you were in a tent. The facilities are top notch but it does not make up for the campground.
