Where to stay in Cameron

Exploring Cameron

Since its inception, the small Missouri town of Cameron has been inextricably linked to the railway and transcontinental travel. When competition heated up in the 1800s over where to begin the first transcontinental railroad, the town of Cameron and the city of Omaha, Nebraska, were neck and neck to win the prize. But neighboring Kansas City was the first to build a bridge across the Missouri River, and thus was able to connect to the existing railway line at Cameron.

The Hannibal Bridge, as it became known, allowed the Cameron Cutoff to be built, resulting in a population surge for this town. The historic Cameron Depot still stands in the Olde Town district, which is where all of the amenities and attractions are concentrated. Cameron’s proximity to the big city of St Louis and several nearby state parks like the Pony Express Lake Conservation Area makes it a useful base for travellers looking to explore this part of Missouri.

Sightseeing in Cameron

- Pony Express Lake Conservation Area

Just 10 kilometres from Cameron is this lovely state park with a large lake at its heart. If you enjoy water recreation like fishing or boating, then this is the best place to go around Cameron. There are nearly 2,000 acres of land to walk, boat rentals during the summer months, and excellent fishing for those with a license.

- Olde Town Cameron

The one part of Cameron that has any atmosphere is its Olde Town district. The original core of the town was founded in 1855 and is today home to nearly all of the historic attractions and other sites of interest. With McCorkle Park as its centrepiece, you can spend a couple of hours strolling the wide streets of Olde Town and stopping at places like the original Cameron Depot or some of the vintage Midwest shops and restaurants in the area.

Transportation in Cameron

Interstate 35 runs right past Cameron, providing excellent driving access to the rest of Missouri and Kansas City. A patchwork of smaller rural highways and roads allow drivers to move about the state with ease, and you’ll find that you definitely need a car if you are visiting Cameron. With no public transport and only a couple of taxi companies, a car is really a necessity to get around with any degree of convenience.
