Pine Ridge Dispersed camping at Mark Twain National Forest

There was easy access to the campground. There were designated spots to camp that had a picnic table and camp grill. Didn't like people just sitting in parked cars in the campground. Quite place to camp for the night.

Super Nice Hosts- squeaky clean!

Nancy was a great person to check us in- we had a lovely spot to set up our tent- they even offered us electric accessvif we wanted! Nice site/ would recommend this for a lazy day!

Needs more information

Went to set up camp for the MR340 and it was very confusing on where the tent sites were. They have 6 RV sites at the top of the hill and 12 more river side. They say they have 10 tent sites hillside but not posts or map or anything that show its for tents. No website or phone number other then to the City. Even when you call that it never gives you an option for camping. Finally I just ended up taking an RV spot for my tent.

One short night

Arrived late, be aware this is a good 5 -10 minutes down a dirt road (after a rainy night it was not pretty pulling my trailer back to the highway). Hook ups where good, considering the remote location not much space between the sites and how large this place is. Did not use the facilities.

Everything we needed

Well taken care of. Right off the interstate which makes for a pretty good spot for an overnight rest. Some nice trails through the woods. Quite at night on high season. Clean bathrooms with hot showers. We paid 12$ for primitive. (W electricity $20)

Happening time

On my road trip out west I stumbled upon this little oasis. Good people and a fun time. Food truck set up and beer was being sold. Gorgeous lookout onto the Missouri River. They have a stage for live music.

Clean, friendly host, great amenities

My wife and I had a fantastic stay and will definitely return for another stay. Campground hosts are VERY nice and friendly. Bathroom and showers were clean and nice as well! I would highly recommend this campground if you’re in the area!

Decent Activities, OK Camping

The campground was average, as were the amenities- but the activities offered were enjoyable (kayak rentals, walking trails- these were shared with dirt bikes, horses, etc.) The lake water was fine for kayaking but we definitely did not want to swim in it. The Park Ranger was unfriendly, and we read reviews of similar experiences written in the campground office guestbook when renting the kayaks.

Not likely to return.

Unexpected respite and best picnic tables ever

First here and would definitely come back. The sites were nicely spaced out and spacious (we have a huge family tent and had plenty of room). We were walk ins too and the campground was half empty so lots to choose from. The picnic tables are also amazing-wish there were more of these out there. They have a top shelf that lets you store things/add light high enough to disperse and have a clean place to eat. Only downside is you can hear the highway when trying to go to sleep, but that became white noise eventually. Definitely wouldn’t prevent us from going back.

Very nice campground!

Very nice campground. Grounds maintained well and nice staff. They have some trails on site, and a state park across in the area. Unfortunately not a ton to do in the area so more of a good stop through place or quick weekend getaway if you live in the area. But worth the stay nonetheless. Is reasonably close to Herman but far enough we didn’t make the drive. We’ll come back.
