Great campgrounds! There is a crushed granite pad for setting up your tent as well as a picnic table and fire ring. The bathrooms are clean pit toilets. The road is gravel to get to the sites, but is a quick drive. Getting into town for more supplies only takes 5 minutes or so. You are also only a 100 yards from the Missouri high point trail and a great waterfall trail.
There was a problem w/ the water while I was there, so you couldn't drink from the tap. Since I didn't bring enough drinking water with me, I had to cut my trip short.
The trails are like no other in Missouri. I felt like I was out in Colorado. The granite is beautiful! This is one I will do again.
Great for practicing those longer backpacking trips. Great overlook area. Foggy in the early spring. And if you need supplies, bring them with you, the town is a little sparce! Nice trails, rugged and a lot of up-down.
