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.
Whether you’re at one of the 25+ lakes in area, one of many beautiful trails, the mysterious WWII bunkers or the scenic roadways, Weldon Spring offers many an escape in the middle of town. Popular amongst marijuana users as the area is so big and close to the large sub-urban area nearby. It’s clean and a great spot for a group or individuals any time of the year.
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.
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.
Nice clean state park close to St. Louis. My family and I spent all of our time on the gravel bar. Parking is limited at the gravel bar so show up early if you want a good spot. The trail to the water is short but it is just a narrow path through the woods & brush (maybe 50 yards). If you have even the slightest mobility issues you will have trouble due to the narrow unkempt path and incline. The host was present if you need anything. Quiet hours start at 10:00 but did not need to be enforced. Everyone seemed to close it down before 9:30. Shower house was ok. Pads seemed level. Short drive to town if you forgot anything.
Watch out for raccoons. They have no fear and appear to be very hungry. One tried to access our trash at 9:15 in the evening. I was sitting no more than 5 feet from the trash and that raccoon did not care.
Super awesome camp sight. Just a walk away from the river. Bathrooms and showers get a bit dirty by the end of the day but I am fairly sure they clean them every morning. We went on fathers day weekend so it was busier than normal. I was just glad to have a shower house at all! Very few mosquitos or bug issues. Lots and lots of deer and turkey! Drive slow. Fishing was not great, but we also might have not been in the best area for fishing. Make sure to bring tubes or kayaks to float on the river! We didn’t bring ours and we were definitely missing out. We will be back here again soon. Loved it so much!
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.
