The Great American Campout brings together families, friends, youth groups and more to connect with nature for a fun and memorable night sleeping under the stars. What is the Great American Campout? On June 27, 2015, thousands of people across the nation will gather in their backyards, neighborhoods, communities and parks to take part in a one-night event that will provide an experience for all generations to connect with nature. You can join the Great American Campout whether you are an experienced camper or first-time camper. Join Missouri state parks and historic sites for a variety of programs throughout the state.
