Big Creek RV Park has a reputation for camper care with sites right by the creek where RVs are connected to electricity (30/50 amp), sewer, and water. Pads are spacious and gravel with plenty of grassy space between neighbors. The access is pull-through and back-in with a picnic table and fire ring at every site, plus complimentary wifi and cable TV.
The owners make everyone feel welcome and have created a memorable RV park where kids and grownups have the best of times. The family pooch can also come but for the peace of all campers are required to stay on a leash. There is a dog area where they can run and meet new woofer friends under the supervision of their guardians. They are also prohibited due to health regulations from entering buildings or the pool area. Litter bags are provided, so pick up your dog's waste and with 38 acres of wooded trails, your pooch can expect a few pawesome walks.
The park's on-site rentals are pretty swish and provide an opportunity to pack up the car and stay in one of their fully-equipped trailers. Each unit sleeps either three or four people and features a separate bedroom with a kitchen and sitting area. This is a great way to experience camping without the hassle of bringing your own motorhome.
Big Creek RV Park is all about family fun, and for the amateur angler, there is catch-and-release fishing in the creek while the kids can hang out in the playground, mine for gems, or stay cool in the securely, fenced swimming pool. Horseshoes are a camp classic with volleyball a great way to meet campers as you form family teams. Let’s not forget the awesome host activities, including a rubber ducky race on the creek or the hayride marshmallow roast.
The nearby city of Annapolis is a four-mile drive and gateway to the Taum Sauk Mountain State Park. They say when you hike to the top of this mountain, you are standing on the highest peak in the whole of Missouri. The Mark Twain National Forest is a 40-minute drive, while Johnsons Shut-ins State Park is a popular haunt for hikers and nature lovers with beautiful mountain scenery and a unique swimming area.
