Camping, Fishing, & Floating Off Route 66
Are you planning to cruise Route 66? Stop by and see us here in Richland, MO. We’re open all year round to visitors. After all, we’re in a prime spot for gigging season! You can stay in our cabin that sleeps four. We welcome motorcyclists and horseback riders to stay with us also.
We have electric and primitive campsites available year round. While you stay, you can float down the Gasconade, fish either here in our ponds or on the river, or sit in the sun and soak it in.
We’re located in Pulaski County next to Mark Twain National Forest just off of Route 66. Only 15 minutes from Ft. Leonard Wood and 10 minutes from Interstate 44, we’re close enough to civilization to be convenient but still far enough away to make you feel like you’re really camping.
Here at Froggy’s, you’ll be just a hop, skip, and a jump from something fun.
Reserving a Campsite, Float, or the Cabin
Give us a call to make your reservations. If you have questions, you can fill out the form below. We’ll be with you as soon as possible.
Speaking of questions, we’ve anticipated you might have a few. Here are the questions we hear the most and their answers. Who doesn’t like immediate answers?
Q: How far is Froggy’s from St. Louis, Kansas City, and Jefferson City?
A: We are 2 hours from where I-270 and I-44 meet in St. Louis. We’re a mere 1 hour from Lake of the Ozarks, 1.5 hours from Jefferson City, and 3.5 hours from Cape Girardeau and Kansas City. We’re far enough away to feel like a vacation, but close enough you won’t lose most of your getaway time to travel.
Q: Are ATVs, four-wheelers, dirt bikes, go-carts, or golf carts allowed on the premises?
A: Unfortunately, no, not at this time.
Q: What should I bring for camping?
A: A few suggestions include a tent, tent stakes, rope, sleeping bag, air mattress, something to blow the air mattress up with, pillow, camp stove, lantern, flashlight, lawn chairs, insect repellant, toiletries, cookware, cooler, food, and drinks.
Q: Do we need to make reservations for campsites?
A: Yes! You’ll especially want to plan ahead and make your reservations for holiday weekends early. If we have open campsites, we are always happy to welcome those who prefer to live spontaneously. But we can’t guarantee we’ll have a campsite available without a reservation.
Q: When is quiet time?
A: From 11 p.m. until 6 a.m., we ask everyone to keep it quiet and be considerate of the rest of the campers.
Q: What’s the latest we can cancel our reservations and still get our money back?
A: We have a 10-day cancellation policy. If you cancel 10 days prior to your reservation date, you’ll receive a refund minus a $20 service charge. Any cancellations made less than 10 days prior to your stay will not receive a refund. We do not offer rain checks for campsites or the cabin.
Q: How much do I have to put down to reserve a campsite or cabin?
A: Space is limited, so to be fair a deposit is required to reserve your campsite or cabin. Half of the total cost of your stay is due when you make your reservation.
Q: What’s the latest we can check in?
A: 9 p.m. is the very latest campers will be allowed to check in unless other arrangements are made. So if there’s a snag in your plans, please give us a call so we can work together to make sure your stay gets off to a great start.
Q: Do you have showers and a restroom?
A: We do! We offer free showers in our shower house, and for your convenience, we’ve placed porta potties in several locations around the campground.
Q: Do you allow generators?
A: We do not at this time.
