  • We're frequent visitors of Washington State park, my favorite state park in the area, There's plenty of hiking, camping, swimming, and general use areas, as well as a swimming pool during summer hours...  more »
  • Has a bbq pits for day use, stream that flows for kids to float and play in. Shaded area for sitting, or sit in sun on red gravel. Could most definitely spend the day here.  more »
  • Had a Senior who is limited on walking. We got a very nice view of the park and the Big River. Nice place to have a picnic.  more »

  • Beautiful park with lots of History. I wish more money from our Park service was spent here on improvements. Is a great visit every time I go, even during the winter. Was a great place to spend some quality time with my sweetheart, on a warm afternoon in January.
  • Great example of Missouri forests and glades. Well maintained and trails well marked. Went in early spring after a lot of rain - some areas were washed out but not impassable
  • Beautiful trails. Various terrains. Love camping and floating here. Consessionear is very nice to work with.
  • This place is great for hiking with great scenic views. It would be better if they would open it up to rock climbing. There's a couple really nice bluff lines there. The beach is a great place to bring the kids. There's big mud slides for them to play on.
  • Love this state park. Great hiking for everyone, good campsites, and you can always find a nice quiet place here. The river is a river, so obviously be cautious upon entering, the current tends to be strong in that stretch of river most of the time. Best when water levels are a little low so kids can play safely. Great photo ops eveeywhere!
