    Lake Jacomo - Fleming Park, nestled near Prairie, Missouri, is a solid spot for camping with a mix of tent, RV, and glamping accommodations. This place has a bit of everything for everyone. The campground is known for its scenic views overlooking the lake, making it a picturesque spot to set up camp.

    One of the standout features here is the upgraded bathrooms, which visitors have found to be quite nice. If you're planning to stay, make sure to bring some leveling blocks as some sites can be a bit uneven. Shade can be a bit hit or miss, so if you're keen on staying cool, try to snag one of the shaded spots early.

    For those who enjoy a bit of adventure, the campground offers easy access to water activities. The proximity to the lake is a big plus, especially if you enjoy fishing or just relaxing by the water. However, be prepared for some raccoon visitors—they're pretty bold around here, so keep your food secured.

    Families and groups will find the group camping areas convenient, though not all sites have covered shelters, so it's wise to book early. The campground also transforms into a winter wonderland with a drive-through light show during the colder months, which is a hit with the kids.

    Overall, Lake Jacomo - Fleming Park offers a blend of convenience and natural beauty, making it a great choice for a weekend getaway or a longer stay. Just keep an eye on the weather, as some sites can get a bit soggy with rain runoff. Happy camping!

    The Conservation Department created this area in 1968 with the purchase of 1,024 acres from several landowners. Later acquisitions of 924 acres have increased the area's current size. This conservation area was acquired in part through the Pittman-Robertson Wildlife Restoration Act administered by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. Pittman-Robertson funds are generated from a federal excise tax on sporting arms and ammunition. Because of its size and diversity of habitat, Bonanza Conservation Area is managed for a wide range of game and nongame wildlife species. The area's open fields are managed by farming, haying and controlled burning. Other habitat management includes tree, shrub and grass plantings and selective timber harvest. Native grasses have been planted and managed to improve nesting habitat and winter cover. A few streams run through the area; the largest of these are Shoal Creek and Crabapple Creek. Bonanza Conservation Area is a Quail Restoration Landscape. This means additional emphasis is placed upon managing the area for early successional species such as Bobwhite quail.

    Area closed to bicycle use (and horseback riding) during all portions of the firearms deer hunting season and spring turkey hunting seasons.

    On department areas where camping is allowed, camping is limited to a period of 14 consecutive days in any 30-day period. Personal property must be removed at the end of the 14-day period.

Groups of more than 10 people must obtain a special use permit prior to camping. To obtain a special use permit, contact the area manager at the phone number listed for this area in the area details section. Quiet hours are in effect in camping areas from 10 p.m. to 6 a.m. daily. Visitors who are not occupying a campsite are required to leave the campground by 10 p.m. On camping areas with established campsites, only two camping or sleeping units are permitted in each site.
