Katy Trail Rock Island Spur Comments
absolute gem


I've camped here twice now. The park and campsites are absolutely beautiful. Chances are you'll have the place all to yourself.

Two warnings ... 1) There are 2 entrances - use the paved one, on the west side of the park (much easier). 2) Make sure you pick a campsite with good drainage (or stay on a sunny day) - the weird topography of a former quarry means some sites get flooded pretty easy.

Otherwise, if you are camping on your Katy ride, this place will be the highlight of your trip.

Where's "here?" Klondike Park?

Cliff did the whole trail but didnt get a name anywhere? At our age one needs pictures, audio and records for the golden years and the grandkids right?

Um, I put this entry under Augusta. Is there a way that you can see this without going to Augusta first???

I get it.. You go to the town link an post the comment thinking we know what place you are talking about. What if there are several B&Bs in one town? Which one?

For future reference, never just use tags. Use the name of the place you're talking about in the subject line.

Klondike is beautiful. We stayed in one of the cabins and would love to go back when we have more time. Close, just to the west a couple miles, is Augusta Brewing Company and that is also a must-do.

Can you please be more specific about the West paved trail to get to
Klondike

Regarding the request for info on the trails, see the park map:
http://www.sccmo.org/DocumentCenter/View/5240

The eastern trail (River Trail on map) is a very steep, rocky trail that goes from Klondike across the Katy to the MO River. The western trail is the nice, paved route (Katy Trail access on map). There is a large pile of sand on the Katy by the paved access trail, so it is hard to miss at the moment.
