Located an easy ride from St. Louis, the park’s waters are stocked each night from an on-site hatchery. Want more than day of fishing? Stay overnight at the park’s motel, campground or cabins. Want to do something other than fish? Montauk State Park’s hiking trails will take you in and around the scenic Pigeon Creek basin. « less

As a solo cyclist I arrived there in thunder and lightening to be greeted by the bubbly and helpful Katy Holmer. She acceded to my request to put my little tent in the Picnic Shelter area and gave me directions and site information...plus a map of Missouri! The site has a useful General Store (Lodge) and wi-fi. Got a good... More

There are cabins availabe as well. The trout fishing is pretty good. It was very crowded the weekend we were there. The camping... More

Like to fish, think hiking is the thing, or do you just like to hang out? Montauk is your place. For one thing it is a great place to try out your skills as a trout fisherman or woman. You can also see how the trout are managed on the fishery side. The kids love to feed them. The Park... More

Four of us had the Chicken & Dumbling special...had virtually no chicken in it (a few shreds, all together about 1/2 of the size of a AAA battery) and the dumblings tasted like paste. The salad bar was the only thing worth eating. What's with this place? Don't they care? The breakfasts are okay, but the dinners are terrible (unless... More

We live close to Montauk State Park, so we go just to take in the beauty and peacefulness. Many people camp here. They have a fish hatchery, trails, RV sites, playgrounds, fishing, and a lodge for meals and fishing supplies.

Great Missouri state park that is worth the drive. Location is beautiful and campgrounds are well maintained. Numerous areas to fish from bank if you don't have waders. Sunday breakfast at the Lodge is pretty good and reasonably priced. There's a few short trails to add to the adventure. Downfall...not much nearby so great to get-away but not if you... More

Foulest odors. Stayed in the small duplex cabins. They are a small tight cramped room. Then, the larger 4 plex cabins that are very spacious and have a separate bedroom with a murphy bed in the living room. Montauk, please, tear out the 70's carpets and replace! Had my stomach turning. The duplex cabin was so cute on the outside,... More

We had a family site right on the river! It was beautiful and peaceful until a huge group started setting up across from us. They partied and slammed camper doors till 3am when finally a ranger made them stop. We really didn't know who to call about it either. After that the peace was returned. We where tent camping and...
