Hit the weather jackpot again this season and stayed at St. Francois SP on another unseasonably cool weekend in Missouri. We'd booked weeks earlier luckily, as the park was filled to capacity. All the sites in our loop were pull-through and seemed reasonably level. Ours was sort of bowl-shaped, so it was just a matter of getting into the right position to be level. Unlike our stay at another state park, campers here seemed to be honoring the dog rules, and not hooking up to the public spigots. (or maybe the very professional hosts were just enforcing the rules properly here). Despite the crowds, dogs, and kids the campground was pretty quiet and orderly. the sites to either side of us were reserved, but empty until our 2nd night, when 2 families who seemed to be together pulled in with huge trailers. After that, we had various people trotting back and forth through our camp site. kind of a peeve of mine. but we were inside most of the time so I didn't fuss. Unfortunately the weekend turned rainy and we were unable to try any of the hiking trails in the park. We camped at St Francois State Park in a Motorhome.

Nice. Big lots. Some have concrete also under picnic tables.
Big lots that are angled away from each other.
Nice state park. We camped at St Francois State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We were struck upon arrival by how pretty the campground was with lots of trees, sites well-spaced apart, (mostly) level poured pads and a big green space near the shower house and the big children's playground. There was a wonderful ampitheatre near the bath/shower house also --- and the ranger had two fun interactive (educational) programs on Saturday. The camp hosts were terrific. They came around often to deliver ice or firewood and to assist with RVers and tent campers. I was surprised and pleased that my site had a big poured patio with the fire pit imbedded in it....this was much appreciated after the big downpour of rain. We got no TV reception (regular antenna) but good Sprint cell reception. I appreciated that the park rangers and the highway patrol drove through at nighttime; although our tent camping neighbors managed to keep their (loud) partying going way past 10 o'clock quiet time. You don't want to come here in the rainy season unless you like packing up with short notice, as the nearby Big River can overflow it's banks and come flowing into the low-lying campground. I agree with previous reviewers that there is much to enjoy in the park. We will be back. We camped at St Francois State Park in a Travel Trailer.

I really enjoy this state park, very close to my house and has a river that you can swim or fish in and trails you can hike. Park is great for family and pets throughout the RV year. No WiFi (that I know of) and cell is fair to spotty but the spots closer to the entrance get better cell coverage. HD antenna picks up the fox, CBS and sometimes NBC. We camped at St Francois State Park in a Travel Trailer.

St. Francois is a nice park, not too far from St. Louis but far enough that you are in the country. What we enjoy most about this park is the hiking and the ability to get in the river and soak up the sun. Our dogs love swimming here, but be careful it can be fairly swiftly moving for an older or small dog. The campground was clean and sites were very level. As is typical of MO State parks, the sites were not small but also don't afford much space from neighbors. The pull through sites seem to give you the most space from neighbors but keep in mind that because of the way they sit you will see your neighbors campfire, picnic table area etc. Nice hiking right at the campground with views of the river from the trails. Bathroom and shower house was great. The showers are individual and enter from outside rather than from inside the bathroom area. Clean. One set of pit toilets in the middle of the campground. Potable water within easy walk of campsites. Sewer dump station available. Campground hosts were pleasant and have ice and firewood available. Nice playground area for the kids. The only major downside to us was the lack of space between sites. Our next door neighbors were noisy. If you are accustomed to MO State Parks you will not be disappointed. We camped at St Francois State Park in a Tent Trailer.
