The forecast for 100% rain just means that it's a sure thing it will rain, and it has, and it will again. We took advantage of a break in the showers for our daily walk around the campground. The temperature was a very nice 55 degrees with 110% humidity. It felt like being in a mist but we didn't get wet. 15 minutes after getting back into the camper we are now having a good soaking rain, lucked out again.
Even with the overcast skies these dogwood shrubs are really showing their pretty color. Most dogwood in the woods are a dark red color and not as bright as these, especially against the young yellow maples.
I believe that this is the best State Park campground that we have ever been in, including other states. One State Park in Minnesota was so bad we went to a KOA and the same for one in Iowa. Of course it is fairly new but also the sites are well spaced out, paved, and mostly level. Our loop 2 has full hookups, electric, water, and sewer. Loop 3 is electric only which we can use quite nicely. I'm not sure about other loops but we will definitely come back here again, perhaps next Oct.
Missouri State parks also have reasonable rates. In most other state's parks the camping fee is reasonable but they also have a daily use fee that when combined adds up to more than most commercial campgrounds.
