The best camping near Robertsville State Park guide

Overview

About

Looking for a secluded getaway close to the city? Just 50 minutes outside of St. Louis, Robertsville State Park is a rustic retreat, perfect for an off-grid getaway. The Meramec River and Calvey Creek border the park, offering scenic spots for fishing and boating. Hike through the hardwoods, watching for migratory birds, an oxbow slough, rippling streams, and pawpaw trees. If you’re lucky you might find some pawpaw fruit in late summer or early fall. Though almost-forgotten, it is the largest edible native fruit in North America. After a day of exploring the grand wilderness, camp under a canopy of trees..

Notable campgrounds

  • Best for tent campers: Book one of Robertsville Campground’s three basic sites with wooden platforms, perfect for pitching a level tent or for creating a cozy patio.
  • Best for RVs: Robertsville Campground’s electric sites primarily offer 30-amp service, though a handful of 50-amp sites are available.
  • Best for camping with friends and family: Robertsville Campground’s family sites offer paired campsites, with a shared yard.

Tips for snagging a campsite

  1. Reservations may be made up to 12 months in advance through the Missouri State Park website or by phone. 
  2. The campground is open year round, with reservations offered April 1 through October 31
  3. Showers and water are available April 1 through October 31. 
  4. The park offers basic sites, with no hookups, and electric-only sites. Water is available at spigots located throughout the campground.
  5. Restrooms are open in the off season.

When to go

In spring, wildflower blossoms add color to the forests, as the tree leaves begin to fill in. Bluebonnets arrive in April and can best be enjoyed with a hike along the Spice Bush Trail. By summer, the towering trees add shade to the campground, though high temperatures may reach the 90s in July and August. Humidity tends to be high at this time, as well. As fall arrives, October offers the best chance for enjoying the colorful foliage before temperatures begin to drop below freezing in the winter months.

Know before you go

  • The park’s front gate locks at 9pm during the on season.
  • A single-lane boat launch is open daily, with hours varying by season.
  • Swimming is not allowed due to the amount of boat traffic.
  • Interpretive programs are offered seasonally, with an onsite naturalist available in the off season.
