Camping rates are charged on the basis of available utilities, whether used or not. Nine Missouri state park campgrounds offer value camping, with lower rates that vary depending on the day and season. These value campsites provide you with an even more economical alternative for spending the night and may encourage you to discover a new state park you have not tried before. When you are planning a camping trip, consider staying at one of the following state parks and take advantage of their value camping: Graham Cave, Lake Wappapello, Pomme de Terre, Robertsville, Stockton, Harry S Truman, Mark TwainAnnie and Abel Van Meter, or Washington. You may discover a new favorite park.
