Here in mid September. Trees were in full color. Visitor center and other staff locations open only weekends.
Strong cellular signal in loop 3.
Just a great location.
Only downer was having to call in registration. COVID is over MO. Put live folk doing registration not people who do not know the area.

No 2 On USA Today List For Good Reason
We stayed in lot 211 in early October. The park is outstanding. Clean. Level sites. Paved hiking trails to the Shut In’s. The store and visitor center were already closed during the week but open on the weekend. The leaves were just starting to turn.

Stayed loop 3, space 305, early June of 2020.
Plenty of bath houses spread throughout. Potable water as well. Pleased that shower stalls were individual rooms w locking doors.
Cellular and WiFi were non-existent. Can't emphasize that enough.
Spaces were separated well, by RV standards.
Convenient dump station on the way out. Yes, I'd stay there again.

Beautiful state park. Stayed in basic site - loop 4 site 411 - with my travel trailer 4/27-29/19. $11 a night for basic plus $8.50 online reservation fee. Concrete pad large enough for suv, 18’ trailer, picnic table, and fire ring. Good space between sites with trees and shrubs providing privacy. Hiking trail winds around campground and another hiking/biking trail leads to the Shut-Ins. A small stream flows through campground. Also near Elephant Rock and Taum Sauk. Shut-Ins fantastic. Scour trail interesting, especially after learning about the dam breach at the very nice interpretive center. Nice cabins available for rent, walk-in tent sites, and equestrian sites and trail. Bathrooms new and relatively clean. Bikes available for rent at camp store. Wonderful time exploring the park and the adjoining area.

Great State Park
The best state park I've stayed at. They have free WiFi at the store in the campground. With senior discount $21 a night with electric.
Hardly any annoying bugs.

Beautifully maintained campground. Inexpensive. Concrete sites mostly level. No cell service, no wi fi, no tv reception.
Right across the road from Johnson Shut- ins. Nice interpretive center. Good hiking trails. Wading in the shut-ins is a unique experience.
