  • Great trails, super clean, free entrance. Missouri takes great care of their parks, even the ones that seem to get moderate use.  more »
  • This park offers several loop trails of differing lengths. We did not encounter any steep ups and downs and the trails were shady and pleasant.  more »
  • This is a really nice campground. Roads paved and campsite paved and surrounded by shade with Shortleaf Pine Savannah. It was dead quiet and so relaxing. About 20 minutes to Ste Genevieve. We took a n...  more »

  • Absolutely beautiful park. We would have loved to enjoy a little more outdoor time, however after a short hike my husband had about 5 ticks on him... Very clean picturesque park. Just wish they could do something about the ticks.
  • One of the prettiest parks I've been to, and I've been to 51 of Missouri's parks and historic sites in the last year. We loved the trail along Pickle Creek. The terrain was a little rough with lots of rocks to climb over, but what a beautiful spot. Definitely want to go back!
  • I love it here. We've been twice in a month; once for a day hike, and once for an overnight backpacking trip with our 4 year old. There are plenty of day hikes to do, you can backpack on Whispering Pines Trail, and you do not have to stay in an established site as long as you stay a distance off the trail and away from the water (no campfires if it's not an established site). It's clean; I saw very minimal trash (aluminum foil in a fire pit). And there are no fees to backpack or use day use areas. I'm giving it one star off because the Ranger Station was.closed both times, and some of the trails are really, really busy. We made the mistake of taking our slightly aggressive dog with us to try to get him accustomed to hiking and being around people thinking wed see just a few people (it was cold!). It was super busy, even on a cold day. We will return! Just not with the dog ;)
  • Beautiful campgrounds with White pines all around right next to a creek with sand bottom and sides. The campground is well maintained and even has a kids playground area.
  • Love to catch crawfish in the creek. Wonderful place to cool off in the creek at the top of pickle Creek trail. Pickle Creek trail does have difficult areas with bolders.
