We have stopped by this campground many times. It is beautiful and the spacious sites are paved. Restroom facilities are excellent. It is quite near a large lake. The only drawback for us is having to find a water spigot near us.

Great location that's not too far from the greater St. Louis area. Great lake with boat ramp and awesome beach area. Great for families and people looking to get away with plenty of fishing options.

It’s a pretty view across the water. Quiet. Nothing amazing view wise. Nothing was open when I visited so cannot comment on that.

We toured the campground and planned an upcoming stay. We were beyond pleased with how clean and family friendly it was. Plus, several play areas for the kids. We went to the beach area and all had a great time! Definitely worth a trip!

Nice uncrowded park. Fishing dock was great. Seen lots of deer. Caught fish every day! Since the summer was over the marina was closed so bring your own food, bait,etc.

Most of the sites are set up for motor homes so they are paved and have water and elec. They are in the trees so they are shady and nice. For pictures I would ask the state or federal parks offices. Sorry!
