Most Missouri State Parks campgrounds are open for the 2021 - 2022 camping off-season with a number of social distancing measures in place to improve the safety of operations for Missouri State Parks’ guests and staff.

Some campgrounds accept reservations in the camping off-season. For those locations, camping reservations may be made up until 7 p.m. the day of your planned arrival. All other campgrounds offer campsites through walk-up registration only. Full payment for your stay is required before occupying a vacant campsite. Remember to pay before you stay! Please check a park’s off-season dates and operations through the park’s camping information webpage by clicking here

Note: Your reservation guarantees a campsite will be available to occupy at 3 p.m. on your day of arrival.


With 92 state parks and historic sites, Missouri State Parks has something for everyone. The system includes homes of famous Missourians, Civil War battlefields, and reminders of yesterday such as gristmills and covered bridges. We also protect and preserve the state's most outstanding landscapes - deep forests, glades, prairies, blue streams and clear lakes - for everyone's enjoyment.

Nature waits outside your door when you spend the night in Missouri State Parks. Opportunities for hiking, fishing, boating, swimming or many other outdoor activities are just steps away. There are a wide variety of camping opportunities from primitive walk-in sites to sites with hookups for water, electricity and sewer. You can browse the options by park, desired arrival date or the particular type of campsite or lodging you prefer such as a tent site, yurt, camper cabin or RV site.
