  • 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

  • Was there for the bluegrass festival. Beautiful area full of cottonwood trees. The park staff were friendly, helpful and patient. The visitor center/park office was nice and cool, big and had activities (it was 97 and humid outside). Nice areas for camping and picnic tables. The little amphitheater was nice. Paths were nice and many were cement. Can't wait to go back and stay in one of the cabins or yurts.
  • We stayed in the Bagnell Yurt and had such a blast! Beautiful location along the Missouri and nestled in among Cottonwoods. When we arrived the Visitor Center was closed, but soon a park ranger came by and helped us get where we needed to be and some more helpful information. I grew up going to this park, but had not been back in many many years—facilities have been upgraded and new yurts and cabins and campsites are available. We did a trail run in the morning and spent some time reading at the Visitor Center. My fiancé was totally impressed and said we’d be back. Thank you for all your care in maintaining this beautiful park!
