Special-Use Camping

Boy Scouts setting up tentsMany state parks have special-use areas for use by nonprofit organizations. These areas are assigned on a first-come, first-served basis and may be reserved by calling the individual parks. Organized youth groups (Scouts, 4-H, church, etc.) have priority.

Missouri State Parks welcomes nonprofit groups to group camps and special-use areas. Qualified tax-exempt organizations must provide a copy of a tax exempt certificate at time of payment.
