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.
Shower house is nice. Campsites are good, just not close to the lake. You can take a trail from camground 2 down to indian petroglyphs and the swim beach.
Nice calm lake great for swimming, fishing, canoeing, kayaking, and small motored boats. There are several trails, picnic areas, and play areas for kids. Campground 2 is small and quite with clean shower/bathrooms. Camground 2 Site 58 is a joined drive with no tent space, however you get an isolated area, and has an uneven pad for camper. It has a large patio and picnic table. Campground 1 is much larger with several great sites.
Well maintained. Clean bathroom/shower house. Great trails. Nice beach area.
Located just outside Kirksville, this hidden gem has a large lake with boat rentals. The campground is well maintained. Thousand hills also has a variety of trail lengths, giving options to the inexperienced and the backpacking adventurers.
There are tons of things to do during any stay at Thousands Hills (affectionately called Thousand Chills). There are kayaks and canoes to rent, lakeside shelters, plenty of trails to hike, and plenty of campgrounds. There are areas that have cabins and also places that have RV hookups. Really great for anybody!
I went after a rain and it was beautiful. Many of the trails absorb water well and it's not too muddy. The trails and campsites are dog friendly and are very well marked.
