Campers looking to enjoy a scenic stay on the clear waters of the Black River, will enjoy the calming riverside atmosphere at Highway K Park.
Fishing and canoeing are very popular on the river, where campers also enjoy wading out into the clear waters during warmer months.
The campground offers 83 sites, including many with electric hookups and some sites with water hookups. Additional amenities include a dump station, hot showers, a picnic shelter and playground.
Highway K is a few miles upstream of Clearwater Lake on the Black River. Campsites extended over both sides of the river bank, in a lush, wooded area of mixed hardwoods.
The Elephant Rocks State Park, Johnson Shut-ins State Park, and the historic Civil War site at Fort Davidson State Park make for an interesting, scenic day trip.

Loved this location and being next to the water. Hard to pitch a tent in some areas if you require stakes.. lots of rock in the more primitive spots. Locals are friendly.
We have stayed here a few times over the past couple of years and really enjoy that it’s it’s right on the Black River and that it is still within a couple of our drive from St. Louis. The campground is actually made up of two different campgrounds, East and West. The East is the older campground while the West campground is newer and geared more towards larger RVs and features bigger sites. Although we have camped at both with our 40 foot fifth wheel and as long as you pay attention to the trees you can still get around the East campground without any problems. The newer campground does not have as many trees so most of the sites are out in the open￼. The campground is just a few minutes away from Annapolis which has just about any of the basic needs that you might want. And again the proximity to river access is wonderful for enjoying a day at the river. Great campground!
