I’ve camped here in a tent as well as a travel trailer and it’s great either way!
Nice camping spots, generally a very quiet campground. The campsites are a bit of a hike from the lake but there is lots to do when you get there. Paddle boats, a beach, several playgrounds for kids, fishing, a marina and a great restaurant.
There are several different trails you can hike or bike.
A great and affordable place to stay in north Missouri.
Thousand Hills SP was great. Huge swim beach, lots of trails, pavilions, playground equipment and beautiful views. Park has a full service marina where you can rent kayaks or fill your boat with gas. It also has a restaurant. Restaurant was not a little more upscale. I wouldn’t show up in flip flops and swim trunks. If you don’t have a RV or tent there are cabins to rent as well.
Nice, but small state park, has around 40 rv sites. Large newer shower house to service all 40 sites. All sites are shaded. They have around 10 sites with full hook ups. Park is sitting on 1900 acres with plenty of hiking trails and a 18 acre lake. Nice place for a quiet getaway, downside if any is no TV reception, cell phone service is 4g
While I loved our camping spot, this park was just OK for me. The grounds and restrooms are nice, and it’s much smaller than most parks. The “lake” was very small and the hiking was just OK.
We stayed in electric site #19. It’s nice because it’s a pull through site with no neighbors on either side.
As with all things ratings are subjective to the whims and mindset of the reviewer. That having been said this park meets my criteria as a wonderful park. Having stayed many times, the park often has fewer than five campers. No, there are not water or sewer hookups and only 30 amp electric service, but the showers are immaculate and the pads mostly level and hard surfaced, surrounded by a bounty of shade. The pileated and red headed woodpeckers are in abundance and the trails including a long boardwalk make for interesting walks. The setting is a oak/hickory forest. I hate to give this review for fear of others coming for the experience but great things should be shared.
Pershing State Park has nice treed sites that are not too close together.
It is a smaller campground. Easy to get walk around. There are some wonderful trails nearby. Our favorite was the Boardwalk trail - 1 1/2 miles of boardwalk through forest. Just beautiful! We also visited nearby LaClede where John J. Pershing's boyhood home is. Very informative and interesting.
