What a gem! Crystal turquoise water and we got to watch the rangers counting and releasing the trout. They were not to busy to answer questions and the trout “stalked” my husband around the pond...

$5 entry fee per vehicle. This was a really pretty area. Most trails were paved. There were lots of trout. Bring some quarters to feed the fish.

One of the best places in Mid-Missouri for fishing, picnicking, and taking a leisurely stroll through nature. The water really is that deep aqua blue, and the air coming off the water on a hot day is the best refresher. You can also see some local Missouri history with the ruins of the old Iron Works, and in October there's a craft show. Definitely worth a visit any time of year for natural, stirring beauty.
Nice clean trout park with fish hatchery. Camping. RV hook-up. General Store. A few nice trails. Some large cave opening that are safe. Some lesser known caves areas outside the trout park that can be traversed with a head lamp and nice boots. 70 miles from St. Louis. Missouri has 5 trout parks that are some of the best in North America.
