We have visited this campground multiple times and stayed in multiple sites. We tried a new location this time (#25) and really enjoyed it. It was located by itself and was truely car camping with a parking spot at the site itself. #24 is slightly smaller, but has the same benefits. #26-28 are located just up the hill and would be great for multiple families camping together. All 5 of these sites have 2 hammock stands and are located close to a pit toilet that is clean and well maintained. No water pump that I could find for this location.
Previously we have stayed in W4 and W6 which required hauling the gear from the parking lot into the "primative" location. These were nice, but all in one large clearing with no privacy. They were also a bit of a walk to the bathrooms.
I would also recommend site #20. It was grouped with others, but at the end of a row. It would also require hauling gear in from a parking lot, but might be worth it for the shade and seclusion. It is also close to the lake.
We stayed in Klondike Park Campground in May. The views are spectacular with some sandy shores of a small pond in the middle of the campground and some great trails. Augusta is a nice place away from St. Louis and a short drive down 94. One caution… there were tons of ticks… i mean like we found 6 when we got home.
The park has a few different areas for camping. We stayed at campsite 25 which is a really big campsite surrounded by trees. Some of the other campsites are pretty packed together. There was a bathhouse, but it wasn’t really close to our campsite. Still dont think there was water available. As far as amenities, the bathroom was clean, but there’s basically no water so you’ll need to bring your own. Same with campfire wood. We had cell phone service at our campsite so if you’re curious about that, now you know.
There’s also 6 cabins you can rent, but they fill up pretty fast so if you’re going to do that, you need to plan ahead. Plenty of well groomed trails and bike paths, it’s well worth the trip.
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
