Pitch a Tent or Hook Up Your RV

Our newly restored campsites: the perfect place to rest after a day on the river or Katy Trail.

CAMPING AT COOPER’S LANDING

Cooper’s Landing Campground is the perfect place to rest after a day on the river or the Katy Trail. This historic riverside retreat is shaded by giant sycamores and cottonwoods, with an understory of maple, elm, box elder, willow, and mulberry trees. We offer tent and RV camping sites, with an adjacent marina and country store with ample supplies.

Our South Campground is nestled between the Katy Trail, the Missouri River, and the Cooper’s Landing store. This area is perfectly situated for maximum social interaction and proximity to the store, river and social events. Electric service is available.

Preston and Koby are having a good time contemplating what lies beneath those swirling rapids, but they seem to have forgotten their fishing poles!

Our North Campground is directly adjacent to the Katy Trail and near the Missouri River. It has the advantages of being a bigger area and more secluded. It is perfect for larger groups of campers. Both campgrounds are available for special events like arts and crafts festivals, family reunions, weddings and receptions. Catering can be arranged.
