Enjoy a relaxing weekend camping under the stars at Klondike Park, situated off Route 94 between Defiance and Augusta. Nestled in Missouri’s scenic wine country, Klondike Park offers campers a chance to reconnect to nature and the outdoors; the camp is a popular destination for Girl and Boy Scout troops. The camp features cabins that sleep eight, as well as primitive campsites for the all-out campers. The six cabins have beds, electricity, a table and ceiling fans. One of the cabins is handicapped accessible.
A central shower house and nearby restrooms are also available to all who stay at Klondike Park and are open during the months of April through October. This unique shower house also features a built-in camp kitchen. The kitchen has a stove, a sink, stainless steel countertops, and several electrical outlets.
The six camper cabins, 10 basic campsites and 31 primitive sites at Klondike Park can be rented year-round and range from $7 to $65 in price. Reservations are taken Monday through Thursday and can be made either online at www.stccparks.org or by calling 636-949-7535.
In addition to the overnight facilities, the recreational opportunities include cycling through the park’s miles of natural-surface and paved trails, which connect to the historic Katy Trail; strolling around the Bluff Walking Trail where you will see tremendous views of the birding/wildflower area; fishing in the large lake located in the middle of the park; relaxing around the group council ring area, which features a large fire pit for roasting marshmallows and offers homemade benches to sit on; viewing wildlife, native plants and the rolling tree-line countryside from the bluffs of this former silica sand quarry.
