Cuivre River State Park lends a wilder, Ozarkian flavor to the otherwise predominately agricultural landscape of northern Missouri. Although not far from St. Louis, the park is a nature lovers paradise. A stroll through the park in the spring when many woodland wildflowers are in bloom or in the fall when the prairie grasses tower over your head is an outdoor delight.
Spend a few days at the park. Both primitive and modern campsites are available, and Lake Lincoln offers swimming, boating and fishing. The parks two wild areas provide hiking, backpacking, photography and wildlife observation activities. There are also equestrian trails and a campground for overnight stays.
Cuivre River State Park offers basic, electric and electric, water and sewer campsites, an equestrian campground, three group camps and a special-use camping area. On-season (April 15 through Oct. 31) services include reservable campsites, a dump station, showers, water, laundry, firewood and ice. Ice can be purchased daily during check station hours or from the campground host after hours.
Both campgrounds are open and reservable year-round. Occupants of the Equestrian Campground must camp with a horse.
