Overview

Hawn State Park is one of the loveliest parks in a system full of lovely parks. Clear, sand-bottomed streams, wild areas ripe with orchids and awe-inspiring views combine to make Hawn a place that Missourians treasure. Geology buffs love Pickle Creek for the number of exposed rock types. Hikers frequent the Whispering Pine Wild Area for its quiet trails with expansive views. Bird watchers flock to the park for its variety of birds. And there are plenty of quiet spaces for people to get away and enjoy the outdoors.

This is a beautiful and scenic area. It has a nice campground, but not very large. It has a hiking trail that is nice, but there is not much else to do in the park. It is about half way between Farmington and Ste. Genevieve...More

Hawn State Park trails provide lots of elevation changes or fairly flat along Pickle Creek. Lots of choices. Not a large campground, and no water attraction other than creek wading. Hidden gem if you enjoy quiet camping

Great trails, super clean, free entrance. Missouri takes great care of their parks, even the ones that seem to get moderate use.

Yes, there are restrooms near the trail heads as well as picnic tables. There are also restrooms in the campground. The creek is not big enough for swimming. You can get in it, and you need to cross it on some of the... More
