Attraction details
Owner description: Cuivre River State Park is a bit of the Ozarks outside of the Ozarks – a nature lovers paradise just a short drive from St. Louis that is vibrant with colors three seasons of the year. The park’s renowned trails take visitors through prairies and forests of oaks and hickories. The park’s three natural areas feature sinkhole ponds and woodlands that would be more at home in southern Missouri. The park has hiking and equestrian trails, modern campsites, group camps, picnic areas and a lake so everyone can enjoy one of Missouri’s most rugged and beautiful jewels.

“Great camping.”
Reviewed August 19, 2013

A very clean and well operated campground by the Missouri IDNR. They are well staffed, friendly, and work towards a balance of camping experiences by people while maintaining habitat in their natural state. IDNR state sites are ones you can feel safe & relaxed in.

“Hiking Trails”
Reviewed August 10, 2013

We have hiked and mountain biked both at Cuivre River State Park. The trails east of route KK are only open to hikers and are a great places to take a hike. There's a out and back trail off the loop that goes back to a small lake. The main loop is about 4 miles long and takes you across creeks two times and past one spring that has always been running when we have been there. Frenchman's Bluff is a nice short hike and is a very nice view, but if your not into the walk you can drive up the gravel road and see it.

“Gorgeous”
Reviewed May 30, 2013

Beautiful and quiet. Loved the view and great fishing too. The drive was awesome; very wooded with just enough light. You wouldn't expect it in Missouri!!

“Great Horse Trails”
Reviewed May 24, 2013

I loved Cuivre River State Park. The horse trails are really nice. There's a small overnight horse camp so you have to get there early to get a spot. There is a day camp if you just want to haul in and ride for the day.

“Might be Great if you have horses.”
Reviewed March 16, 2013

I like to just drive around nature and watch things. The trees were starting to change and that helped a bunch. It looked like they have a nice area to get your horse saddled up and go on the trails.
