Enjoy an "Elevated Rustic" Camping Experience.

The Meadow Campground & Coffee House offers our guests a cozy and primitive setting for a unique camping experience alongside Salt River, a historical landmark, and a tributary of the Mississippi River. Step off the beaten path down to The Meadow beneath Missouri's deciduous trees, and you'll find a place to make lasting memories with family and friends. Relax in a cozy, handcrafted, Amish-built cabin, unwind on the bank of the river at a tent site, or be in the comfort of your own RV! Here at The Meadow we strive to provide an unforgettable adventure. Our Campground offers a wooded path along the water's edge, kayak excursions, sand volleyball, corn hole, horseshoe pits, scheduled outdoor movies, events, and a Coffee House with amazing specialty drinks and other refreshments. For our angler guests, easy access to the river's bank provides an opportunity to catch the prize fish passing by from Mark Twain Lake. Whether that be while camping with us, or joining in one of our kayak excursions, we hope that you will be a part of it. The Meadow Campground & Coffee House is located less than ten minutes from historic downtown Hannibal, MO, but that's not all! The local area provides hiking paths, concerts, events, breweries, restaurants, antique shopping, and many more historic and tourist attractions.


Reservations and check-ins begin at the Coffee House during business hours. See after-hours check-in procedure. Stop by there first where you'll receive your mandatory vehicle tags to start your experience at The Meadow Campground & Coffee House.
