This is a 100% urban primitive 5½-acre camping site between neighborhoods that doesn't feel so urban, thanks to the forest and the lowered elevation. The campsite is next to the Fox Hollow Creek, which flows into the Blue River, flowing into the Missouri, the Mississippi, and finally into the Gulf of Mexico. As this is a popular spot to unwind next to a creek, there may be other campers with various resourceful ways of camping also on site. There are four acres of woods up the hill from the camp site for exploration and organic foraging. Previously removed invasive plants on the property have been root docked by hand, with no use of pesticides. The site is home to deer, ground hogs, squirrels, frogs, fish, freshwater clams and the occasional snapping turtle, none of which are aggressive.
