Do you really enjoy camping? Rather it be in a tent or a motorhome? How about off-roading, or riding horseback? St. Joe State Park in Park Hills Missouri has it all!
I visited St. Joe State Park for the first time when I was only seven years of age. I arrived with my father and two dirt bikes to go ride on the trails. At this time we had drove down to visit for the day. Now, ever since I have visited being only seven years old, I continue to return several times a year. The State Park is unique from any other in Missouri and probably more fun than any in the Midwest. Now when I visit Park Hills we end up camping all weekend at the park, they have several camping facilities, electric and non electric, for RV camping or tent camping. If you like off-roading like I do, it is great to camp there because you bring your all terrain vehicles to your campsite with you and the park has trails leading down to where you can ride over 8, 000 acres of sand flats and trails. I go camping there, arriving on Friday evening and ride all day Saturday and Sunday and I always have an amazing time. The campsites also are equipped with public showers for people camping in tents. The sites are usually very nice and they keep the place pretty clean.
Even if your not into camping, or you are but you don't like doing off-roading, St. Joe state park has so much more to offer! The park also includes trails for backpacking, several lakes for fishing, an equestrian trial for horseback riding, bike trials and bike rentals, and picnic sites. If you are looking for the perfect outdoor experience St. Joe State Park in Missouri would definitely be a suggestion of mine. I have been camping ever since I was a small kid and I have visited a lot of state parks, however; none can compare to the fun and variety given to you at St. Joe State Park in Park Hills Missouri.
