The maximum number of people using a designated typical campsite is six and 12 for a family campsite. When the number of persons wishing to occupy a single campsite exceeds six, the group will be defined as indivisible or divisible.
Indivisible: A group of persons, campers, tents and vehicles that cannot be reasonably divided to occupy more than one campsite. Examples: parent(s) or guardian(s) with minor children or dependents; a single motor home or trailer with its occupants. An indivisible group of more than six people may occupy a single site.
Divisible: A group of persons, campers, tents and vehicles that can be reasonably divided to occupy more than one campsite. Examples: grandparents, parents and youth; two sets of parents and their children that comprise more than six persons. A divisible group may not occupy a single site.
CAMPSITE CAPACITY LIMITATIONS
To ensure a quality camping experience for visitors and to protect the natural and recreational resources of camping areas, Missouri State Parks administers capacity limits for each campsite as follows:
- Two sleeping units, only one of which can be wheeled, and two additional non-sleeping modes of transportation are allowed. In addition, only one watercraft/all-terrain vehicle (ATV) trailer is allowed per campsite. Additional equipment may necessitate acquiring a second campsite.
The capacity for a family campsite is double the typical capacity listed above. Family campsites currently are available at many campgrounds.
The facility manager must approve any exceptions to the campsite capacity limits.
Examples - Allowed
Examples - Not Allowed
All wheeled equipment/vehicles must fit on the parking pad/area unless special management regulations of the facility allow parking along roads or grass adjacent to the campsite.
