For visitors wanting to savor more of this 3,527-acre wetland masterpiece, the park provides a shady campground with electric and basic campsites, modern restrooms, hot showers and laundry facilities. Four small lakes and Locust Creek provide anglers with an opportunity to catch a variety of fish. Several picnic sites, a picnic shelter and an enclosed shelter with kitchen facilities make Pershing State Park an ideal location for family reunions.

A hike down the 1.5-mile boardwalk or 6.5-mile Riparian Trail allows visitors to glimpse a slice of presettlement Missouri. Visitors can see an active meandering stream with oxbow sloughs and cutoffs, a gently sloping upland forest, a mature bottomland forest and an expansive river bottom prairie, marshland and swamps.

Pershing State Park offers basic and electric campsites and a special-use camping area. On-season (April 15 through Oct. 31) services include a dump station, showers, water, laundry and reservable sites. The campground is open and reservable year-round. For reservations, there is a required two-night minimum stay for weekends. Campers planning to carry in firewood must comply with current firewood advisories.
