The campground is great. Most of the sites are flat and paved. The campground is right next to the Meramec River. There is WiFi available but it is not reliable. The cell phone service is virtually non-existent. We had planned to work from here and had to cut our visit short.
I've seen some reviews say its outdated and I'm not sure where that comes from. On season they offer a variety of float and eat packages that are tasty and nicely priced. Cute little campground with "primitive", electric and full hook ups. All tent camping is still pretty close to the general store that also has coin showers! You have good options for a shady and grassy spot if you're tent camping too. Great folks working there, always very friendly and helpful.
Camped here for two nights over a weekend. Grounds are clean and well-maintained. The bathhouse was clean and stocked. Could use another toilet during peak season, but otherwise better than adequate.
Fire pits have hinged grates that are in fairly good shape. You probably don't want to lay food directly on top of them, so bring cookware.
Sites were clean. Don't leave anything food-related laying out overnight, the raccoons will get it.
Staff was helpful and friendly.
This location has been a constant location visited over the last ten years for an annual float trip with my friends. Enough ground to spread our tents out and still being close to the campfire while not being bothered by other campers.
Quick one night stop along our road trip. Decent tent sites, standard ones are definitely more private than those with electric and water. Nice spot along the creek, but had other campers cutting through our site throughout the night. Overall decent experience.
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 at sites 45 and 46 in the pines overlook loop with our 2 tents. There really is only room for one tent at each site in the grass. The mountain views were outstanding! The camp friendly host "Buddy" has dry firewood cheaper than the uncovered wood up the road from the locals. Shaded, grassy, and very private except for the occasional visitors who drive up the road to see the overlook near these two campsites. There is a vault toilet close by, but at the overlook site we could not find the water spigot, but we brought water with us for dispersed camping anyway. There are plenty of trails and a short drive down to the cool Huzzah river creek. Outstanding!
