Missouri State Park Host Need, Sept

Recommended Posts

I stayed in that park in 1988 as a Nursing Student doing a rotation at the "Chemical Dependency" unit in Kirksville, MO. The Raccoons were quite active and resourceful that year. I was awakened by screaming one very hot night. A couple were staying in a "Van" and had left all the doors open. The Raccoon climbed right in with them. 

A few nights before my Cooler was opened and a package of American Cheese slices were unwrapped and consumed during the night. They didn't police the wrappings very well. Not sure why that was all it bothered. I threw everything else away though. Another night I heard scratching on the side of my tent. I had kicked a loaf of bread out of it's box and it was lying against the side of the tent. (I kept every thing inside the tent after the cooler incident.) It was my last week by then and I just had to turn my light on once and it didn't come back.(that I heard). 

Just realized this was a post from 2017. Why would they have needed someone in September. The season is almost over that far North in Missouri at that time.

Shoulder season camping is becoming very popular. When we volunteered in MO, they sponsored a Halloween event and all sites that weekend were booked a year in advance. Deer hunting camps were also popular during hunting season. It was strange seeing deer hanging from trees in camp sites and hunting gear visible.
