Nestled in the Salt River Hills of north-central Missouri, Mark Twain State Park gives visitors access to sprawling Mark Twain Lake, as well as unparalleled outdoors activities. The terrain is covered by bluffs overlooking the lake and stands of oak, hickory and maple that are filled with white-tailed deer, turkey and other wildlife. Numerous picnic areas, two four-lane boat ramps and more than six miles of hiking trails with lake views offer something for everyone.

Had a wonderful time camping with family, even though it stormed for 2 nights the days were beautiful, the campgrounds are wonderfully kept clean, I really appreciate the handicapped camp sites, makes it so much easier.
