    FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

    Missouri State Parks announces $2 rate increase for campsites with electricity

    JEFFERSON CITY, MO, NOV. 9, 2018 – In response to campers’ request for more electric sites and more sites with higher amperage, Missouri State Parks is raising its rates for campsites with electricity. For arrivals beginning May 1, 2019, campers will see a $2 per night increase for all on-season campsites with electricity. Basic campsite rates will remain at $13 per night, and off-season rates will remain the same.

    On-season is generally April through October but varies around the state parks. This is the first rate increase Missouri State Parks has implemented since 2013.

    “The rate increase will help fund various electrification projects, including upgrading electrical service to 50 amp and repairing and replacing electrical systems,” said Ben Ellis, director of MoDNR's Division of State Parks. “We want to address the power issues that have resulted in closure of some campsites and better meet our customers’ needs.”

    well at least they are going to upgrade, Illinois doubled their rates last time and did no improvements except to state pensions.

    I once camped in Ar. for free, a clean-up crew came by
    each morning, raked campsites, cleaned the restrooms.

    I was impressed, but it was when Clinton was the Gov. of the state.
    So long time ago.

    I have to pay to launch my boat, at some ramps. I think that stinks. I live in Mo.
    So I have to pay to play. lol

    We stayed at the new Johnson Shutins campground 2 years ago for free, rolled in around 7 pm and no one around to pay and left at 7 am and still no one around.
