Cross Ranch State Park reviews
We stayed in the Ice Glider yurt. It was a quick stay as we were just passing through -- ended up arriving later than planned and leaving early in the morning. The yurt is lovely. Has electricity..... more »
Many great campsite along the Missouri River. Great find in the way of state parks. Friendly host. Very clean facilities. Well manicured landscape. Quiet. Will return. more »
We enjoyed a weekend in one of the cabins. The grounds are well-kept and the park is really clean. The trails were good for hiking and we biked them too! Only wish we had had more time so we could have also canoed or kayaked.
Loved Cross Ranch! The camping was way fun, and the main office had several activities on Friday and Saturday for the kids to do, while we were there. They will even drop you off up river so you can kayak back down again! The camp site was well keep and with plenty of space for two tents. The fire ring was also cleaned out, so we didn't have to worry about too much ash inside it. We went for a walk on one of the trails, and the view was really beautiful. We got quite a few ticks on the walk, but we were able to get rid of them all without much trouble. Definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a fun camping trip.
