Are there bathrooms available after hours? We plan to camp here on a Sunday when the community center is closed.
Thank you

If no one else replies here I'd just call the Community Center and ask

Fantastic people, wonderful facilities, and good camping. What more could you ask for? Free coffee in the morning! A great surprise and bonus.

WOW!! What a gem. Fabulous facility. Friendly staff. We knew we would be very close to their closing time, so I called to verify their procedure for overnight parking. We made it with a few minutes to spare but they told us not to worry if we didn't. Just to come in when they opened in the morning.

Travel Pup enjoyed the Paws Bark Park. Unfortunately we slept too late and I missed the swimming pool hours.

This is, by far, the best free camping on the Katy Trail. The Community Center offers free hot showers, in a modern, super clean, carpeted Locker Room, open til 8p.m., reopens at 5a.m. Friendly staff, great facility, they even make coffee in the morning. If you're camping, camp here. We stayed sept., 2017

Seems cool but FYI on Friday they close at 5pm and they aren’t open on weekends this summer (June, 2018). I found out the hard way :(

Great place! Almost all of the people working the facility are great! I believe Ray (the morning guy) is a bit stand offish with cyclist so maybe give him a wide birth! Other than that great stay, great facilities with showers and locker rooms.

We are interested in biking the Katy from Clinton to Sedalia, spending the night in sadelia then biking back the next day.. We are wondering if we can park our car overnight here?

Yes, you can park at the Clinton Community Center. Park near the road under the lights, then go inside and fill out a short form--they like to have your contact info and know how long your car will be there. There is not a charge for parking.

After your ride, you may also want to take a shower there at the Community center locker room, so pack for that too.

Have a great ride. Katy is habit forming, so after your 2 day out and back, get ready for a full ride.

This place and people were awesome. We got to camp behind the building in a fenced area. It was totally safe.
No charge. And we got to use the facility and showers!!!!!
