There are hogs… beautiful lake with great camp sites available. The beach area provides a family friendly place to swim. We hiked the entire trail from the campground and ended with just over 14 miles.
We have camped here for 5 or 6 years always Labor Day weekend. It has large, wooded sites with good shade and hammock worthy trees. Council Bluff Lake is about a 7 min. drive or a 5 mile hike away. The trail is a total of 12-13 miles around the lake. I have run the campground to the beach access and it is well marked and clear. My experience on the trail on the other side of the beach was less favorable as a half mile in it was pretty overgrown. There is a concession stand, shower/bathroom facilities, and kayak/canoe rental at the beach Memorial Day through Labor Day. Gates to access beach parking are currently 11-7. We love camping here. the biggest draw back is the limited access to the pay showers. Otherwise, a hidden gem.
This is one of my favorite campgrounds in Missouri. There’s plenty of shade, and the campsites are deep and a good distance apart. There is also a beautiful lake down the hill and a mountain bike/hiking trail that travels around it.
