Can I camp without a reservation?

Reservations are required to camp at a Missouri state park campground through Oct. 31, 2020. Reservations may be made up until 7 p.m. CST the day prior to arrival.

I don’t have a computer. How can I make a reservation?

You can make a reservation on the phone by contacting the reservation call center at 877-422-6766, between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. CST daily.

I don’t have a smartphone. Can I still self-check-in?

Yes, you can complete self-check-in from a computer at home before leaving for your trip. Alternatively, you can check in upon your arrival by following the posted signage at the campsite. For more information on self-check-in, click here.

It sounds like there will no longer be first-come, first-served camping. Is this correct?

Correct. Reservations should be made prior to arrival to ensure we can provide a safe and enjoyable experience for everyone. By requiring reservations, our staff can better prepare for our visitors, plan accordingly and ensure all public health guidelines are followed.

How does self-check-in work?

There are two options for self-check-in on the day of your arrival. You can check in prior to arriving to the park by logging into www.icampmo.com. Alternatively, you can check in upon your arrival by following the posted signage at the campsite. For more information on self-check-in, click here.

My phone isn’t reading the QR code. Am I doing something wrong?

If using an older smartphone, your camera may not read the QR code and you will need to download a QR code reader app. Alternatively, you can enter the website listed on the campsite post check-in card to complete your check in.

How can I self-check-in at a campsite with little to no cell phone connectivity?

See the campsite post check-in card. Alternate instructions will be provided (i.e., go to the check station, campsite fee office, campground host, etc.).

I had a reservation during the campground closure and I haven’t received my refund. What can I do?

If you had a camping reservation for an arrival date between March 27 through May 17 and you have not received a refund, please contact the reservation call center at 877-422-6766, between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. CST daily.

Will the reservation fee be waived now that reservations are required to camp?

The reservation fee will still apply. The reservation fee is paid to the reservation contractor to provide the equipment, software, connectivity and call center necessary to provide a reservation system.

If I cancel my camping reservation, will I receive a full refund?

You can cancel your camping reservation up until 7 p.m. CST the night before your arrival to receive your refund less an $8.50 cancellation fee and the non-refundable $8.50 reservation fee. If you cancel on the day of arrival, you will lose the fees for two nights camping, plus the cancellation and reservation fee.
