The South campground is nestled between the Katy Trail, the Missouri River, and the Cooper's Landing store.
This campground is perfectly situated for maximum social interaction and proximity to the store, river and social events. Electric service is available.

The North campground is directly adjacent to the Katy Trail and near the Missouri River. It has the advantages of being a bigger area and more secluded. It is perfect for large groups such as church groups and boy scouts.

Both campgrounds are shaded by giant Sycamore and Cottonwood trees with an under story of Maples, Elms, Box Elders, Willows, Mulberry and other bird-watching perches.
Nature lovers are enraptured by the beauty and preservation efforts of this treasured area.

Both campgrounds are available for groups and special events like Arts and Crafts Festivals, Family Reunions, Weddings, and Wedding Receptions. Catering is available.

Sometimes we have firewood available for $10 for a level wheel barrow load. Call 573-657-2544 after 4 pm for appointments or information.
