Locations for Photos in St. Joseph, MO

Youngdahl Conservation Area

This place is the most popular for photoshoots the reason why is because there's a variety of scenes in just one place.

This location looks different every season with lots of colors when is Spring and Fall and you can also find some pine trees and two wood bridges.

Hours:4:00am - 10pm

Krug Park

Another popular place for photoshoots that also has different scenes in just one location. You can have a bit of ''Urban'' look or nature it's up to you. 


Hours:5:00am - 12am (Hours might change during holidays)

Krug Park Trails

That might be the only place in town where you will find a waterfall but don't expect anything huge because it's a small waterfall but still a gorgeous spot for photos. At the trail entrance you can find a spot with rocks, grass and trees and depending on the season some pretty flowers,

to get to the waterfall you need a 15 minutes walking trail that during the rain season is really muddy so if you not comfortable with getting your feet dirty you might want to avoid this option. 

Hours:5:00am - 12:00am (Hours might change during holidays)
