Camped 2 nights in a 22' Class C, no toad. Site #11 was back-in, partially shaded, and has electric-only hookups: 15A & 30A, tested good. Did not require any blocks to level up, and to the side has a pea-gravel patio with picnic bench, fire ring, and lantern post. Site backs up to the "blue" Possum Track 2.5 mile hiking trail. Strong AT&T service with 3g. The "electric" site loop is small, but has generous spacing between sites, most partially shaded. Some are pull-through, some back-in. The MO state park reservation system can tell you what's what and has a picture of each site, with the slope (if any). There is a pit toilet at the head of the loop, and further up is flush-toilet facility, further up from that is a flush toilet / shower / laundry facility shared with the primitive camping loop. The dump station is a bit peculiar to get to, where you have to cut a U-turn to get into the dump area. Long trailer/truck combos may have to give some thought to your approach. Campground host sells ice and fire wood, and they do a fund-raising biscuits & gravy breakfast on Sunday. Dumpsters and recycling at the exit, near the dump station. NOTE: that MO Route 104 loops through the park off MO Highway 21.. the "SOUTHERN" (west as you look at a map) is the designated RV Entrance. We drove through fine in our smaller Class C, but anyone in a big A or 30'+ truck/trailer combo will definitely want to use that "southern" entrance to the park. We camped at Washington State Park in a Motorhome.

Me and my father went at the end of May and it was great the we went hiking on found that the trails are beautiful. It was a great experience. The staff their was very nice but I wish that they were trained better because we asked about on of the trails and they didn't know anything about them. Other than that it is a pretty campground. (Especially in the Spring and Fall). The Bathrooms are very well maintained too. The other problem that we had was that the dump station was a little bit of a challenge to get to with our 24 foot trailer. The sites are great, they have a lot of room and are pretty flat. I do wish that their were water hook-ups. You get great views of nature and the woods though. HAVE FUN!!!!! We camped at Washington State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Park only had about 4 walk up sites and the rest you need to reserve in advance. All the pads (that I noticed) were paved and mostly shaded. Not a big park but is well maintained and the camp hosts were very friendly. The park has a pool and has 1 river access (gets crowded on weekends) and a few nice trails (would be a nice hike in the fall). AT&T Cell service was excellent, did not detect any park WiFi and HD antenna picked up most channels (including FOX, CBS, NBC, PBS, CW and ABC) We camped at Washington State Park in a Travel Trailer.

We came here because its close to home for us. We just bought our first camper and wanted to try it out somewhere close to home. It was early in the season so most amenities were not available to us. I would come here again, and we well be back again in July. We camped at Washington State Park in a Travel Trailer.

A great place. Nice people work here and it is quiet. Pretty area with good access and asphalt. All else is grass. Would not hesitate to return to this park. We camped at Washington State Park in a Travel Trailer.

One of our favorites! Nice quiet family park. If hiking on the trails wear good sturdy shoes. 1000 step trail is literally 1000 steps but worth the view from the top. Bathrooms were clean but could use a little paint. Hosts were friendly, Park Rangers were around and available if needed. We camped at Washington State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Very clean park. Nice shaded lots. Paved sites. Nearby petroglyphs and fishing. The town of Desoto is nearby if you need to run to the Wal-Mart for supplies or groceries. We camped at Washington State Park in a Travel Trailer.

The pool is new. There is also river access for fishing/swimming/floating. Nice quite campground, nice trails for walking. The petroglyphs are very interesting especially for children. We camped at Washington State Park in a Travel Trailer.
