Wet a line at one of the Midwest’s premier trout-fishing destinations at Montauk State Park. Located an easy ride from St. Louis, the park’s waters are stocked each night from an on-site hatchery. Want more than day of fishing? Stay overnight at the park’s motel, campground or cabins. Want to do something other than fish? Montauk State Park’s hiking trails will take you in and around the scenic Pigeon Creek basin.

Great State Park

Montauk is one of our favorite state parks. The grounds are well maintained and the camp sites of reasonable size. Besides the trout fishing, there is plenty for the kids to do.

The lodge is located on spring fed streams nestled in the rolling hills and cliffs of Missouri. Such wonderful views with miles of trout fishings streams. The fly fishing hère is second to none in the whole of North America. The lodge has a great resturant that will prepare your catch of the day and has an excellent menu, in... More

I hadn't been to Montauk for years and went down for a day of catch and release trout fishing in January, 2015. The setting was beautiful. I caught several good fish and saw several bald eagles. And...I had a great lunch at the café. Although we were just down for the day, I drove through the camp grounds and was... More

Went there to let the kids blow some steam off - once we got them away from the folks who were actually trying to fish... things improved all around. :) Great, clean facilities - playgrounds for the kids, friendly folks at the store/lodge/restaurant, and the kids were just amazed when they got to see the trout in the hatchery getting...

We stopped in at Montauk State Park a couple of times again this past weekend. It's the weekend before Halloween, so they were having their Haunted Grist Mill - Voices from the Past. The old grist mill was "haunted" by non-scarey ghosts that told the history and original operation of the mill and surrounding developments. They had three scheduled appearances... More

Usually go twice a year. Once in March and again in October. Always a good experience. Facilities are good and relatively clean. I tent camp and the park is in excellent condition for this. Can get crowded on the river in some areas at times especially near the horn time. Have never hiked in the park, but have visited the... More

I have always appreciated Missouri's many beautiful state parks and Montauk is certainly one of the good ones....especially if you like to fish. This well-stocked river (the Current River) and the well marked and maintained hiking trails are the primary attraction for me. We camped in travel trailer in Loop 4, which had wonderfully-spaced and level sites. The fire pit... More

As a solo cyclist I arrived there in thunder and lightening to be greeted by the bubbly and helpful Katy Holmer. She acceded to my request to put my little tent in the Picnic Shelter area and gave me directions and site information...plus a map of Missouri! The site has a useful General Store (Lodge) and wi-fi. Got a good... More
