Amazing park close to the city. Great lake and hiking trails. Access to the Katy and bike trails. Camp site are large, warning that some are hike in and not car camping. The only issues is the loud hummmmm of the power plant can be heard in the night.
I camped as part of the Big MO Ride and Row event. It was my first visit to the park. Campsites are walk in, but a short walk. Some are more private and shaded than others. Our site, 35, like its neighbor sites was small and pretty close to others. Other sites like #19 and 20 were more secluded, offered more trees and privacy. There is a seasonal bathhouse, which is clean and well kept, but serves all 43 campsites with its 3 stalls and 2 showers per gender. The cabins look great from the outside and sit back in the woods. The park is beautifil and a great place for a quick escape ftom St. Louis.
Klondike park is a gorgeous park along the Katy Trail in Augusta, MO. The campsites are very quiet, very family friendly park. On site restrooms, hiking trails, and a small lake with overlooking bluffs. Campsites are pretty close to each other is the only downfall. The views make up for that though.
A nice little park near the Katy Trail. Great fishing pond by the campground. Pay the extra $3 for a basic site- they have really nice covered picnic tables. The shower house wash disappointingly dirty for as new as it was, but it was a busy holiday weekend. Close enough to wineries to bike to.
had a great time in this park would come again
There is not a lot going on but there are some short trails for hiking and/or biking that are worth the stop.
We stayed at Klondike for a surprise birthday weekend for my best friend and loved it! The views around the pond are amazing. There is a sandy beach area surrounding the water, making it a great place either lay in the sun or to go fishing. It is right on the Katy Trail so the hiking and biking is great as well. The camp sites are not very secluded, but you are not right on top of the next site, so you have a fair amount of room.
Really nice place when you get into the woods. There is hiking trails which was wonderful. There is a winery nearby. My campsite was amazing, it was clean and wasn't too far from the restrooms. There is picnic tables and fire rings. I usually bring my own firewood because i believe in the leave no trace rule. I would definitly come back to this site
Early season, this campground is pretty quiet with a lot of big lots for camping. The best spots are around #11, where there's a great view of a pond and bluffs, and a nice tree for shade. This is conveniently located off the Katy trail. The road in the campground is newly paved and the drop toilets are nice. There's plenty of spots for parking.
One other really cool thing about Klondike is there are several technical mountain bike sections that are located in the park. Bring your mountain bike and have a go! It's also a great campground for a stayover if you are bikepacking the Katy Trail!!
