Parks and Recreation

Below you'll find a listing of parks, recreation and attractions from around the St. Charles County area including wildlife preserves, natural wetlands, forested areas, fishing, hiking and nature trails.

Hideaway Harbor Park
Located on Sioux Drive just west of Portage Des Sioux, this 49-acre park has spectacular views across the Mississippi River towards the Great River Road. St. Charles County acquired this site as flood buy-out property following the flood of 1993. Prior to 1993, it was an operating harbor with docks, boat ramps, fishing lake, and rest rooms. The site includes natural wetlands, forested areas, an accessible fishing dock, and Weber Lake.

Klondike Park
The park includes: camper cabins, the Curt Loupe Conference Center, a fishing lake, boat ramp to the Missouri River, natural areas, basic and primitive campsites, biking and hiking trails, access to the Katy Trail, picnic areas, a playground area, and observation areas with tremendous views of the Missouri River, surrounding forests and farmland in St. Louis and Franklin counties.

Matson Hill Park
Located in Southwestern St. Charles County Matson Hill Park is a 68.5-acre park is rugged with wooded hills and intermittent valleys. Located within the Daniel Boone Historic District, the park is reminiscent of the area during Boone's life. In fact, it is possible that Daniel Boone walked within the park's boundaries during some of his many journeys. This park provides a unique recreational opportunity for nature lovers or those wanting to escape into a heavily forested landscape. Matson Hill Park offers a rugged 3-mile single-track trail that follows the contours of the land, crosses creeks and passes by many natural features. Designated for hike and bike use only, the Matson Hill Trail is an intermediate trail that offers a new challenge around every corner.

Indian Camp Creek Park
Situated at the confluence of Big Creek and Indian Camp Creek in northwestern St. Charles County, Indian Camp Creek Park is the largest in the St. Charles County Parks Department’s system. At more than 600 acres, Indian Camp Creek Park furthers the department’s goal of preserving green space by featuring dedicated prairie land, vast wooded hills, limited infrastructure, and protected habitat for the deer, turkey, quail, and other wildlife found inside the park. It also presents a look into the history of the region. Evidence shows that several American Indian communities settled the site in the Mississippian Period.

Katy Trail State Park
The Katy Trail State Park is a recreation rail trail that runs 225 miles in the right-of-way of the former Missouri-Kansas-Texas Railroad. The trail often known as the Katy Trail is a Missouri state park and the longest Rails-to-Trails trail in the United States. Sections of the Katy are part of the Lewis and Clark National Historic Trail and the American Discovery Trail. Most of the trail follows the northern bank of the Missouri River. The trail is open for use by hikers, joggers, and cyclists year-round, from sunrise to sunset. The trail is made up of "limestone pug" creating a hard flat surface.
