We are spending three nights here. Love the large, shaded campsites, bathhouse is clean, and perfect area to ride bikes. We didn't fish, but the stream was pretty. The only negative is I have to disagree with some of the posts that said the restaurant was good. We ate lunch there today, my food was swimming in grease,the food quality... More

Nice area. Good camping nearby and great canoeing with abundant wildlife. Would recommend Jadwin Canoe Rentals for equipment and shuttles.

Our home away from home! Love taking the RV and hanging out by the campfire with some great food and drinks....trout fishing is always better in the early morning bit you can fish any time of day and usually catch some trout!

We love Montauk State Park. I grew up doing vacations here every year, and love to trout fish. Fishing requires a MO state fishing license, and then a daily tag which is $3.00. The park is beautiful with lots of scenery & wildlife. There is also a trout hatchery on the grounds that the kids love because they can feed... More

A great representation of Missouri Outdoors. Offers trout fishing for a daily fee. Or just wander the trails, the lodge, or the fish hatchery. Cabins or camping spots are available.

This park is nestled between two large ridges and is the headwaters of the Current river. Lots of trees and animals to see. Be sure to take a little bit of a walk to the rearing ponds located past the Conservation office. This is where they keep the "lunkers" and when you throw in the fish food it is like... More

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
