  • I am from the area, and honestly didn’t even know this existed. We decided to take a little trip to general Pershing’s house and saw the sign for the bridge on the way back. Decided to check it out. I...  more »
  • One of the remaining covered bridges in Missouri and well worth the time it takes to walk in to see. The old road bed was still there the last time we were and it gave us a feeling of the roaring 20's  more »

  • After visiting this site we've now seen all four of Missouri's historic covered bridges, and like the others, this one did not disappoint. I'm glad we had our insect repellent, because there's a quarter mile hike, though a wooded area, to get from the parking lot to the bridge. It was kind of odd seeing a bridge with no water under it (the creek has been redirected around the bridge), but it was really cool to see another piece of Missouri history. The following descriptive passage is from the Missouri State Parks website: "Locust Creek Covered Bridge was built in 1868, became a link in one of the nation's earliest transcontinental roads. Today, it is the longest of Missouri's four remaining covered bridges measuring 151 feet."
  • One of 4 covered bridges remaining in Missouri. A nice little 1km walk from parking to the bridge. The park is currently having some reconstruction done. No restroom like you'll see at most parks. Also a nice way to get back to Nature. The Covered Bridges history sign by the bridge is past due for repair.
