Missouri is a midwestern state defined by the two mighty rivers that border it — the Missouri and the Mississippi. If you're planning a trip to the land that Mark Twain made famous, you won't be disappointed. You can cross the state from east to west and hit up both St. Louis and Kansas City, two exciting cities with tons of things to do and see. Or, experience the natural beauty of expansive grassy plains and the forested Ozarks that lie between these two cities.
No matter where you choose to explore, KOA campgrounds in Missouri will make your stay comfortable and convenient. We offer affordable sites that allow you to explore this beautiful state, making memories every step of the way.

In the east, St. Louis welcomes visitors to the Midwest through the expansive Gateway Arch, which towers over the city at 630 feet tall. There is tons to do and see here, including a ride on a replica paddlewheeler that plies the mighty Mississippi River. On the opposite end of the state, be sure to stop into Kansas City, which is shared by both Missouri and Kansas. Jazz, art and museums make this a great city to check out.
Between these two urban hubs, there is an expansive land to explore. Hit up Branson, a famous family destination filled with live theaters, fun attractions and country music revues. Or, take a walk on the wild side with a visit to the Ozark Mountains. The beautiful woodlands continue as you hike your way through Mark Twain National Forest. Follow Historic Route 66 through the state of Missouri. Don't miss one of the greatest of the old Route 66 tourist attractions — Meramec Caverns, an extensive set of limestone caves offering an unforgettable underground tour.
