No camping fees at state parks for flood victims

Missouri State Parks will waive all camping fees for families displaced by recent flooding along the Mississippi River in state-declared disaster counties.

Camping fees will be waived at Trail of Tears State Park and Lake Wappapello State Park. The waiver will apply for 30 days, after which time each situation will be re-evaluated to determine if the stay needs to be extended.

All campsites will be available on a first-come, first-served basis.

People requesting the fee waiver should provide documentation from a governmental or charitable organization certifying that they have been displaced by flooding in a declared county in Missouri.
