 Old Fashion Hay Rides in St. Charles

Ok, I'll admit I was going to try post "Things to Do" to the blog on a regular basis, but it's been a very busy summer and I've fallen out of the habit of blogging lately.

But I was talking to a client today about summer vacation and they said their kids were driving them nuts because they're bored.  So, here's something unique for them to do- although you have to wait until September to do it...

(BTW, a while back I was also accused of only posting Things to Do that were in the City, so you'll be happy to know this one is out in St. Charles County!)

Excerpts from a St. Charles County Government press release below

St Charles County, MO - Enjoy an old-fashioned, tractor-drawn hayride and campfire this fall in Quail Ridge Park.  Each Friday, Saturday, and Sunday night from September through November, the St. Charles County Parks Department will offer 45-minute wagon rides through the park.  Each hayride is followed by a one-hour campfire — where groups are encouraged to bring along hot dogs, marshmallows, and other items for roasting — at a designated site.  The cost for the hayride and campfire is $125 per wagon.

The hayrides will begin promptly at 5, 6, 7, and 8 p.m.  Two wagons carrying a maximum of 20 people per wagon operate each session, and larger groups may reserve more than one time slot on a space-available basis.  Groups are permitted to bring non-alcoholic beverages and snacks, but alcohol and glass containers are prohibited.

Advanced reservations are required for the hayrides.  To reserve your space, please call 636-949-7535.  Additional information is available at

Open from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m., Quail Ridge Park is located just south of Interstate 70, near Highway 40/61 and Callahan Road, in Wentzville.  The 250-acre county park offers fishing lakes, hiking/bicycle trails, picnic shelters, a disc golf course, playgrounds, an Off-Leash Dog Area, and a Lodge that is available to rent for meetings and parties.  For information on St. Charles County Parks Department events, please visit or call (636) 949-7535.
