Very neat park to visit. Nice shaded/wooded sites are prone to fire bans during dry conditions. Diamond mining equopment is pricy to rent with deposit, but miney is refunded easily. Diamond mine has absolutely no shade, so hot weather mining is difficult. Nice bath houses.
State Park in Southeast Missouri along Big Creek. Well maintained campsites with electric hook ups. Water and dump stations, but no water hook up sites. Nice beach with easy access for swimming and kayaking. Very nice bike trail throughout park. Privately owned store and restaurant in park. Cabins also available for rent.
Excellent park for trout fishing in Missouri. Camping available from March through October, when trout are stocked daily and available to keep a limit of four per person per day. Well-maintained sites are subject to flash-flooding during heavy rain. Shower and bath houses are decent. Park has privately owned lodge with store, restaurant and motel rooms and free Wifi. Beautiful scenery along spring-fed river.
