Cuivre River State Park is a bit of the Ozarks outside of the Ozarks – a nature lovers paradise just a short drive from St. Louis that is vibrant with colors three seasons of the year. The park’s renowned trails take visitors through prairies and forests of oaks and hickories. The park’s three natural areas feature sinkhole ponds and woodlands that would be more at home in southern Missouri. The park has hiking and equestrian trails, modern campsites, group camps, picnic areas and a lake so everyone can enjoy one of Missouri’s most rugged and beautiful jewels.

Been coming here many years. Full RV hookups, massive camping area for the tenters, full hookups on the RV side. Its close enough to Troy and shopping if you forget something you can still get it very safe and secure environment patrolled regularly by state Rangers good value for the money

The beach even in the summer isn't very crowded. Its not the best and somewhat small but it's nice on a hot day. They have lots of little creeks that do become crowded with lots of families with younger kids looking to have a shady spot. The docks are nice and covered. The trails are well kept and offer a...
