Pretty lake and Mountian views

Great spot on the East side of the lake, Not far from the town of Leadville where there is a Safeway, places to eat and places to shop. It was a bit windy the day we stayed but great views, lots of hiking trails and things to explore. Campground is located a high elevation.

Nice Place to get away

Not a huge campground but, Its a really simple beautiful place to enjoy Missouri's rolling hills. It is located 1 hour from St. Louis and 30 ish min from Elephant Rock State park. If your in the area check out the other amazing Missouri state parks while staying here. The Missouri Mines state park is maybe a 5 min drive and a neat place to see. Tent sites, Bathroom and some hammock spots.

Nice quite side to the park!

This is a great section of the park with a nice clean camp ground with bathrooms, water and close to hiking and climbing trails!

Can hear the ocean and watch a good sunset!

Good spot for camping near the beach with clean bathrooms with quarter slot showers, picnic tables, fire pits and food lockers.

Great view with central location in the Park!!!!!!!!!

Each campsite contains a fire ring, picnic table, and a food locker and is near a bathroom with drinking water and flushing toilets.

What an AMAZING place to stay in the park!

Great place if your heading for a day of climbing. These are walk-in sites for tents only and are on a per person basis ( It fills up really fast ) parking is available adjacent to the campground, you will need a parking permit. It is close to the general store and showers.

Each campsite contains a fire pit (no grill), picnic table, and four shared food lockers and is near a bathroom with drinking water and flushing toilets.


Its ok, Little close to the city for me.

Its a little to commercialized for my liking. I stayed in a wilderness site it was $25.oo bucks. Here you can rent sites, cabins & golf carts. Its is super close to Six Flags and right off HWY 44 Close are most fast food or grocery places. You can get a band allowing your kids to do games of mini-golf, free train rides on the Yogi Bear Express Train, two arcade tokens, and a discount on Pizza at the Snack Shack.

Great place to stay with access to close by trails.

This campground is located along the Middle Fork of the scenic Snoqualmie River in Mt. Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest with towering Douglas fir, cedar and Western hemlock, and located near several hiking trails within a short driving distance, this campground is a perfect site for both individual and small group camping excursions. There are Picnic tables, vault toilets and drinking water. *A Recreation Pass is required for each vehicle parked at the trail heads. There are a few first-come, first-serve sites Camp ground opening date dependent on snow melt.

Nice Place for family fun

Camping here is great. Friendly hosts and it has a on a scale of 1-10 grade 6 Bathroom/shower houses. There are a plenty of different style camp sites, some with trees a perfect distance for Hammock camping. There are fire rings and the ground has a playground, boat ramps, a beach, store. The North end of the North to south (LBL) hiking trail is very pretty this trail runs the entire length of the (LBL). We always go to Turkey Bay ORV Area, it is the Land Between The Lakes' designated area for off-highway vehicles. They have rentals available and it is a Blast.

Nice Forest camping

This is a wonderful camp ground to stay at while Exploring the Olympic National Park

Great place if you are boating or ORV.

Nice park with a large camp sites with premiere off-road vehicle area. The park also features four lakes, two swimming beaches, equestrian trails, a hiking and bicycling trail and picnic sites, as well as two campgrounds capable of accommodating campers with ORV or horse trailers.

Very nice, clean and fun place to explore and camp

The Shut-Ins is one of my kids favorite state parks to visit, very nice, clean and fun place to explore and camp. The visitor center has lots of information and maps available. The Camp sites are large for tents and there are trees for a hammock. The camp ground is clean with showers, bathrooms and fire rings. Water shoes are a must and or swim suite if you plan on exploring the shut-ins * ROCKS CAN BE SLIPPERY. There is a long decked walk way to get to the shut-Ins, They are really a site to see, the white water runs through a maze of outcroppings and dumps in to a large pool at the bottom. Can be busy during peak summer season.

Love getting away from the city

We live Missouri and love getting away from the city and out to the forest and farmland, When we visit the Ozark's for camping we generally choose Onondaga, Clean large sites for tents and trees for Hammock camping. Bathrooms, showers, nice general store/gift shop with thing you may have forgot. Bringing water shoes is a must! Depending on when you come bug spray or a bug deterrent makes being in the outdoors in the Midwest more pleasant. Summers are sticky and warm, by September the mornings and evening are cool with a high of 76-81. There is a ton to experience here go for a float on the river or bring a chair to sit and watch floaters go by, caves, hikes, there is a zip line close, horse back riding, fishing, and great places to take a photo of the day.

The PNW Rocks

I really enjoyed the it there and the view of the beach is beautiful. Camping was great was only there to set up a hammock and get back on the road. Lots of lighthouses around to check out and hiking. The outcroppings in the ocean are so neat, the water was a bit chilly and it was misty in the mornings and evening down by the beach. This part of the country is so interesting, Never a dull minute.

Words can't describe

Gold Bluffs Beach campgrounds is close to anything you want to do within the park. I enjoyed the smell of the redwoods and amazing views. There are ferns everywhere and you can start to feel like your in the PNW. It is cool in the evening so you will need some warm items. The drive and hiking trails are AMAZING! I cant wait to go back!

Great family place

Lots of thing to do. Camp ground has lots of trees for hammock camping and large sites for tents. *Note- only two tents or lodging items per site. Free showers and clean facilities. There is a cave tour that is a lot of fun. Tons of great hikes with some that take you to caves. Access to the river for lounging or floating. My daughter and her friend made a fun video.

Very Pretty

sites are on a First come bias the National park is just across the street. Great hiking and ocean views.

Loved waking up here!

This camp site is easy to get to , there is porta potty a raised fire ring, breathtaking morning and evening views. you can hear some of the traffic on the PCH behind you but the crashing waves drown in out. There is firewood available from the campground host for $5 dollars a bundle. Little windy at sundown. Make sure to have your tent set back as the tide comes in and will wash all your camping items out to sea. The nearest store is about 10 mins away.

Nice Forest Camping

The campground is located in the Mark Twain National Forest. The fire rings are a plus and there are lots of trees for a hammock set up or tent. Lake is very pretty with a 1 mile hiking trail with some great views. In the evening it is dark enough to enjoy the stars.

Love Malibu

Was a great time.. Who does NOT like Malibu. We had an Environmental campsites they are located in relatively undisturbed natural settings. Each site has a table, a clearing for your tent, and a primitive toilet nearby. Environmental campsite fees and hike-in distances vary. It was peaceful and clean I love the warm days and cool evenings.
