This is the best campground I’ve been too as far as privacy and site layout. Trees are between each site. Lake front campsites are actually lakefront! The bathrooms are super clean and the shower actually felt like a “personal” shower. However I would be concerned with shower availability if campground was full, 3 showers per loop (one in men’s, one in women’s, one in unisex/family bathroom). My only “complaint” if that’s what you want to call it was the heat in the bathrooms was already turned off and it was still 28 degrees at night. Made showering pretty chilly with the cold air in the bathroom. Actually ended up using the family bathroom since it was smaller and shower warmed the air some.
This is a nice campground. But not if you’re looking to get away from people and get deep into nature. This is mostly a fishing campground. Not a lot to do in the area. Campground is still nice, just close to city and not as nice as other areas in Missouri
This is the perfect place for a family in the summer. Crawling through the rocks with water flowing between them was always fun for me as a kid. Still looks beautiful today as an adult. The campground is also very nice. Showers and bathrooms are clean. Probably the best state park in Missouri.
This campground is perfect for rent camping! Sites are far apart, gravel base, fire pits and picnic tables in each one. I grew up camping here every year. They have a few electric sites for trailers but not recommended, basically a long strip of concrete. River is crystal clear, round spring is beautiful shade of blue. (Unless lots of rain, don’t expect this with flooding going on)
Showers and bathrooms are new and clean! They are open year round. Trailer sites can either be too close together or perfect. You just need to make sure you pick the right site. Alley Spring is beautiful.
Campsites were great, adequate space between sites. Love the layout of the campground, sites run parallel to the river. My only complain is bathrooms and showers are old and dirty (dirty because they’re old, still cleaned daily) and the shower was barely warm in the fall.
