The people were very nice, easy to maneuver in the park (don't turn in at the office) and nice spacing between sites. Water pressure was good as was the antenna TV signal and 30/50 amp electricity. You do get road noise here - but the convenience to St Louis was worth it. - Don Self

Sites were fairly spacious, level, cement pads with grass between sites. Roads were also cement and easy to maneuver around. I deducted points because the concrete was very broken up with weeds growing all around. There were many permanent residents who stored junk all around their sites. Also, this park is in flood plain which I did not know and we were there during some very rainy days causing me some worry. Luckily all was fine and the staff was very nice. With a little effort they could make this place very nice. Verizon cell service was fine and we did get Direct TV satellite here. - SNL

The park has beautiful mature trees, with well maintained grassy areas throughout. Concrete pads and parking areas, with updated electrical service. Generous spacing of sites. Has a great laundry area with 4 new washers and dryers and a large folding table. Very conveniently located with amazing shopping and restaurants within 3 miles. New management is accommodating. - Greg Dalton

Mostly permanent residents, but very nice. Concrete pads, convenient, big rig friendly. Manager was OUTSTANDING!! We had waited for over two hours at another campground to check in - no one in office or answering phone. Called and this park's manager helped us out. Thank goodness she had vacancies or we'd probably still be waiting!! Will stay here every time we're in the area. - DYK 640

Right on the highway so VERY noisy. Way too many trees so couldn't get any satellite signal. Not really an RV park...more long term trailers. - CIAforHim

Trees on entry road need trimming; also a number of the sites have low hanging branches. We have stayed at this RV park many times while visiting family, but never again. We arrived shortly after the flooding, expecting to find debris & signs of the creek overflowing. What we did not expect was to find dried sewage covering the pad and the grassy areas. Our site was closer to the creek than others, but the water had receded 5 days earlier. The water connection is underground (which I have always been a bit uneasy about), and the access "hole" was full of mud & likely sewage. Apparently every time the park floods -- which it does almost every year, to some extent -- the sewage comes up through the sewer connections. The smell was awful. We called the owner to come down; they were apologetic & said they'd get someone down to pressure-wash & spray chemicals on the pad in the next day or two and dig out the water connection. I'm not sure if they pick up the "sheets" of dried sewage; that wasn't mentioned. We had no idea this happened until this year, and has guaranteed we will not be going back to this park again because of the health risks, and the general "crawly" feeling we had once we realized we were basically parked in a sewer. There are children living in this park! The park is in a flood plain, but nothing was ever mentioned about sewage backing up into the park. The owner is a very sweet lady, but she's now in her mid-90s and just not able to keep up with things anymore. It's a real shame, because we always enjoyed the quiet, large sites, lack of traffic, and country "feel" (which is why I gave them a rating of 2). There are very few options for RV parks in the St. Louis area. If you decide to stay here and have pets, I'd suggest you buy a large container of disinfectant wipes to clean their feet every time they come back inside. We just could not convince ourselves to stay, although the majority of the sites are occupied. - HDT

This place needs to level their sites! We finally got one that was kind of level on our third try. There is no internet or tv service, with only one station available by antenna. We left early because we were frightened by loud, close by gun fire. Scared the crap out of us and we're gun owners. The sewer hook up was at the end of the sites; bring plenty of hoses. - Omajan

This park is a work in progress. I would check back in 5 years, around 2018. First off the entry road is very narrow, one lane only, windy and drop offs on both sides. The sites are gravel with a downward slope so leveling is very difficult on some sites and would be almost impossible on others. It rained several days before we arrives and so our tires sunk into the mud as we entered the sites. Then exit road from the pull through sites is very tight plus the road has deep gulleys. We will need to back out of the site to avoid all the ruts in the road. There are no amenities, shower house or bathroom. Also there are no staff on site. We had to schedule an appointment to pay our bill. The view from our front window is the highway. We would not recommend this campground . - Linbarmax

Nice facility but light on the perks or add ons. We stayed in the area for a week and explored STL and while this was a safe place to come home to, it was predominately filled with long term residents. The owners were extremely friendly and helpful the park was clean and well maintained. Level site where we had parked too was a bonus! Would stay here again if ever in the area. - bertimus2002

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. - VW_Vista

Nice. Big lots. Some have concrete also under picnic tables.
Big lots that are angled away from each other.
Nice state park. - Tworetired

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. - stocky

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. - VW_Vista

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!!!!! - Mattman1222

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) - stlcardfan
