An exclusive, quiet space on the St. Francis River located just upstream from Class III/IV whitewater for those with a taste of adventure (requires training). While you stay on the campground, enjoy fishing, bird and wildlife watching, giant yard games, and personal campfires. While hanging out on the banks, catch all the bass, catfish and perch you want. Birdwatching is at its best in the mornings and afternoons. I have spotted Grosbeaks, Indigo Buntings, Swallows, Pileated Woodpeckers, Yellowthroat Warblers, Double-Crested Cormorants, Turkeys, Cardinals, Blue Jays, Barn Owls, Great Blue Herons, Flickers, and, yes, my favorite...Bald Eagles. On the ground, you add in the black snakes, deer, silver fox, armadillos, possums and woodchucks and are left with a delightful blend of wildlife right outside the city for you to enjoy at the campground. We pride ourselves and our campground for being a nice place for those looking to share conversation by a personal campfire during a comfortable nature getaway.
Most of your neighbors will be trained whitewater kayakers or fishermen. Not a riffraff party place. No guns or shooting on premises. No illegal substances permitted.

Peaceful slice of heaven
We loved camping there! Peaceful, beautiful, and quiet. In addition to being clean, the shower/laundry house is brand new. Huge field to walk in (our dogs loved it too!). JoJo was a wonderful host and we will definitely be back.
It was a great, secluded home base for us to explore the Arcadia and Ste Genevieve tourist spots. The hardest part was backing up our 38’ trailer down the driveway but it is possible and worth the quiet nights with the St Francois river or starlit open field.
Fields of flowers and foxes
Excellent host, Jo Jo. Very knowledgeable and accommodating. She provided 30 amp adapters and even surprised us with a lovely mason jar of wildflowers for our picnic table. The sites were clean and we had a spectacular meadow view, where we were entertained by an energetic silver fox, springing through the wild flowers. We were the only guests, so it was quiet, and we had access to the freshly mown trails.
Fortunately, we were the first guest and the place was pristine! Love the walking trails that have been mown in the meadow. Also loved the proximity to the climate controlled bath house with an excellent shower! Would stay here again!
