The terrain is hilly but manageable for everyone and there are benches for quiet reflection situated every quarter mile or so. The parking lot is to the left about a quarter... More

There are telescopes that provide and even better view and you can even see the Leavenworth prison. The Park is very well kept and it was serene. Bring your walking shoes because there... More

This is a great park for a day trip, but it also has camping available. There are picnic areas too for day use. The old tobacco barn and the scenic overlook with views of the Missouri River are great. We did not use the trails, but the whole area is built on lovely rolling hills along the river, so the...

We stayed 3 nights at this Missouri State Park, Host was great, It was mid October and the weather was perfect. Most spaces are level and wooded. Only electric at the sites. All Missouri state parks seem to have coin laundries, which is fantastic if you are a full-timer. There are several things to see nearby, distillery, winery and a... More
