Kingdom Come State Park is a state park located in the Jefferson National Forest, east of St. Louis, Missouri on Highway 21 about 30 miles (48km) southeast of Springfield, Kentucky. The park was named after King’s College Chapel in Cambridge, England from which many of its early settlers migrated. It is most famous for being the site of the Hanging Rock Memorial to victims of the 1811-1812 New Madrid earthquakes. The park also preserves part of the historic Ozarks trail and features several trails of its own. A portion of the original roadbed can be seen along Trail Ridge Road just off U.S. Route 41.
The park has such amenities as hiking and mountain biking trails, camping areas, picnic shelters, playgrounds, swimming pool, cabins, lodge, nature center, gift shop, and restaurant. There are more than 200 campsites at KCSB, including tent sites, RV sites with water and electricity, yurts, cabin complexes, lodges, and group camp. To help fund a backlog of deferred maintenance and park improvements, the state implemented an entrance fee for this park.
The fees, charged per vehicle, start at $10 per day for a single-day or $8 for residents with an Oklahoma license plate or Oklahoma tribal plate. Fees are waived for honorably discharged veterans and Oklahoma residents age 62 & older and their spouses. Passes good for three days or a week are also available; annual passes good at all 22 state parks charging fees are offered at a cost of $75 for out-of-state visitors or $60 for Oklahoma residents.
