Katy Trail Rock Island Spur Comments
City Park in Pilot Grove

Brother-in-law and I camped here on Friday, July 3, 2015. Called the police to register. No problem, didn't have to make reservations or anything. Seemed like the whole town (all 650 or so) were here at the time, with a DJ and a cookout. Turned out the local fireworks display was happening that night. So we sat down on the ground near the neighbors, very nice folks. After the fireworks ended, about 9:30, the DJ kept playing music. Oh no, we were worried there was going to be a party right there till late in the night. So I asked the DJ how long the music would last--just until 10:00, which was fine with us. I will say that the restrooms at the park were pretty filthy when we were there, but hey, you can't beat the price to camp here--free. Friendly people in Pilot Grove.

One other thing. We weren't sure where to pitch our tents. Some locals told us that the park extends into the grassy area south of Mt. Vernon Street to the east of "Progress St.," the little road that loops around the park. This is where we pitched our tents. Google Maps doesn't show this area as belonging to the park.
