Stroll through the history of a once-bustling river town that’s now the serene village of Arrow Rock. You’ll walk streets lined with the architecture of the historic “Boone’s Lick Country.” At Arrow Rock State Historic Site, you may wander into the historic Old Tavern, which dates back to 1834 and provides a dining experience in a period setting or see displays of old-time wares at the Huston Store. You can learn about it all through exhibits in the visitor center. The historic site is part of the larger Village of Arrow Rock, which features quaint stores and a bevy of antique shops.

Beautiful small town with original buildings from its heyday. The park itself is spacious and has a very informative and well kept visitor center. Camp ground is not very private but had clean facilities and well managed. Beautiful. Dark night skies

This historic site displays the history of this area of Missouri. It's free to visit. If you go, be sure to dine at near by J. Huston Tavern - it's delicious!

The campground is one of the best I've seen. As for the town of Arrow Rock, it was OK but nothing spectacular. I do recommend eating at the J. Huston Tavern.
