Summary:

Set less than an hour outside of St. Louis, Mo., Roberstville State Park is a hidden treasure in the woods. This small campground with very wooded sites allows for privacy and the real feeling of being one with nature in the parks more than 1,200 acres.

The 12 basic (non electric) and 15 electric sites are often booked ahead on summer weekends, but the park is very quiet mid-week. If you’d rather be nestled in the trees instead of jammed in a modern “parking lot” type RV park than this is definitely your type of place when visiting eastern Missouri.

Pros

  • Inexpensive with 30-amp sites renting for $19 per night or non-electric sites costing $12 per night).
  • The park is open year round although services are limited during the off season.
  • The densely wooded area provides total privacy from your camping neighbors.
  • Most spots are long enough for big rigs.
  • Roads leading into the park are smooth and contain low amounts of traffic.
  • Dump station available and free to use at front of campground. This is also a great place to fill a fresh water tank.
  • Since the park is bound by the Meramec River and Calvey Creek, there are endless opportunities for water activities.
  • There is a boat launch with easy water access which is perfect for fishing and boating on the Meramec River
  • For those who enjoy geocaching, there are at least four caches to be found within the park borders.
  • The parks ecosystem is home to wildlife such as dear and is a perfect location for birding.
  • A few of the campsites have new wooden platforms. These sites are unique and great sites if you do not need electric hook ups at your site.
  • Family campsites are available and are twice as wide, allowing for two camping units.
  • The main bath house has three private shower rooms with plenty of room to shower (with HOT water) and to change.
  • During the busy season, from April to October, laundry services are available as well.
  • Customer service is excellent. We did have a problem with our electric pedestal, but is was promptly fixed and we were comped a night because of the inconvenience.
  • During the busy season there is a campground host always on duty. It was easy to get our questions answered and the host was very kind and knowledgeable.
  • Naturalist programs are offered free during the summer weekends. Go for a hike with an expert and get a behind-the-scenes look at the park.
  • Although nearly all sites have plenty of room to back in, there is one pull through sites and two paved handicapped sites.

Cons

  • Some low hanging branches on the road into the park and hanging over some of the sites. Take care when backing in.
  • None of the sites have sewer hooks ups or water right at the site.
