This is a clean and well kept campground. The campground road is blacktop and the RV sites are concrete and level. A majority of the campsites have both water and electric with 50 amp service. The dump station was very clean also. A real plus for this state park is that it has Wi-Fi available at each site which was nice because our cell phones couldn’t get a signal at the park. The spacing between the sites was OK. Each site has a fire ring, picnic table, and lantern post. All sites at the park at reservable through the state park’s website. The park has some nice hiking trails, and the Meramec River is a within walking distance. There is a small playground at the front of the campground that is in full sun. The bathrooms and shower houses were clean but looking a bit dated. The park sells ice and firewood. Rangers patrol the campground regularly. I highly recommend taking a tour of both the Onondaga Cave and the Cathedral Cave, both are located in the park. Be warned though, the Cathedral Cave tour requires you to hike ½ mile through the woods to get to it. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a very nice park. My wife and I enjoyed our stay. The camp host is very nice and will bring ice to your site, if requested. The park is kept very clean and we will diffenetly come back. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Upon first entering the park we immediately noticed how clean and well kept it was. The sites are each large and shady. The hosts saw us pulling in and came over to meet us; they were so friendly, even telling us which sites were open. The Meremac River is within walking distance, where you can go on float trips, or simply sit and cool off in the water. There were several very nice hiking trails. There weren't very many showers, and the shower house was just so-so. We chose to shower in our camper for that reason. Before leaving we toured Onondaga Cave, which is highly recommended, as well. We enjoyed our stay, and have put this park on our list of favorites. We will definitely go back. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This was a very nice park to stay in. It is a beautiful area. They have different trails you can walk, a river nearby to go fishing. They have a cave tour you can take. The cave tour is about four hours long. The camphost is very nice. We will plan to come back. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is one of our favorite campgrounds. Concrete pads, paved roads, fire pits, pole for lantern or trash, roomy sites. Park Rangers are present for security, but not intrusive. Hosts are very nice. Meramec River is close by for fishing of swimming. You can also tour Onondaga Cave. There is an amphitheater and trails. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We stayed here in a Travel Trailer. Most sites are shaded and all are level, paved and easy to access. Restrooms were clean...there are newer handicap accessable shower houses and restrooms. The Cave is a must see for everyone. Playground equipment is newer and well kept...it is in the direct sun so during the summer use early in the morning or after sunset. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Huge campground at a float trip outfitter. We stayed on a summer weekend. Floating is a zoo on a warm summer weekend. Even so, the campground was quiet and hundreds of young campers were under control. Sites are not level, trees are very near parking sites. We had to adjust our location to get level and clear of trees. Computerized check in, very organized and well staffed. Campground is poorly marked: we had to unhook, back up and try again to find our site. I would recommend visiting during the week or in the off season. Floating the streams here is great when the crowds are smaller. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The best thing about this campground is their express check-in; their receptionist was right when they told us as long as we sent in our vehicle information either thou their website or fax it within a few weeks before our arrival. We did the express check-in vehicle form this resort implemented. As we came up to the gate they printed out our car tag and we was able to go straight to our campsite without having to go into their store. Like we have had to do at all the other campgrounds we have been to. The staff was very friendly and helpful. They have a full service cafeteria style (Paddler’s Grill) which serves breakfast and dinner at great prices on weekends and holiday weekends. Their convenience store stocked all of the necessities! The park has a late night and family area primitive campsites. The RV sites are easy to get in and out of the pull through space. All sites are shaded, and well kept. If you are in an elect and water site you can hit the dump station on your way out. This resort has log cabins, motels, chalets, and grand suite. They rent canoe’s, kayaks, rafts, and inner tubes which you can float on 3 different rivers; Meramec, Huzzah and Courtois. Amenities include: pool, playground, horseshoe pit, volleyball court, laundry facility, outdoor swimming pool, bbq pit/fire ring and picnic tables. Rates are reasonable. We’re going to all of our family and friends about this resort. Right across on the other side of the river is Onondaga State Park. The Huzzah Wildlife Area is on the other side of this rustic resort. We camped here in a Tent.
