Paddy Creek Recreation Area Professional Review and Guide

"Paddy Creek Recreation Area isn’t just another nice campground—it’s my favorite Missouri camping spot. I love Paddy Creek’s beauty, but fun memories make it special for me too. I’ll never forget waking in predawn darkness one April morning and hearing a low voice from the next site murmur, “I’ve got a shotgun, you’ve got a shotgun, he’s got a shotgun... I guess we’re ready to go.” I chuckled in my sleeping bag, thankful I knew it was turkey season.

Missouri has beautiful state parks that are very worthy of a visit. Unfortunately, campsites in these state-park campgrounds are often packed a little too tightly together, they’re usually popular on summer weekends, and the parks themselves are sometimes overdeveloped. They usually offer less privacy than their national forest and national river counterparts and attract more RV and travel-trailer campers."
