Attraction details
Owner description: Stroll through the history of a once-bustling river town that’s now the serene village of Arrow Rock. You’ll walk streets lined with the architecture of the historic “Boone’s Lick Country.” At Arrow Rock State Historic Site, you may wander into the historic Old Tavern, which dates back to 1834 and provides a dining experience in a period setting or see displays of old-time wares at the Huston Store. You can learn about it all through exhibits in the visitor center. The historic site is part of the larger Village of Arrow Rock, which features quaint stores and a bevy of antique shops.

Arrow Rock is such a neat little town - love to take day trips there & would definitely stay if I lived a little further away!

Arrow Rock is nice, especially if you go during festivles. People of the town dress up in 1800's clothes. I went when I was a kid and loved it. Park grounds are beautiful. There are a few "old time" stores and antique shops that are nice.

My 8-year-old and I visited Arrow Rock early in June as a day trip. What a wonderful time we had! The State Park offers a Museum of area history (well-paired with Boone's Lick, about 30 miles away), trails down to the River, and a step back in time in a place that modern advances seem to have forgotten - to it's benefit!

Just a block away from the State Park is Arrow Rock itself, population less than 100. Main Street offers a few quaint shops and the oldest pub continuously operating this side of the Mississippi. My son and I stopped in the Soda Fountain to have the best, hand-churned ice cream we've ever had.

We can't wait to go back. After spending the day there, we hated to leave. The resounding sound of the locusts was almost magical. HIGHLY recommended!

I didn't even know of this town until I researched some side trips to take on our way from St. Louis to Kansas City. I wouldn't spend several days there, but it's definitely worth the quick hop up from the interstate. The town has several historic buildings, including the oldest operating restaurant west of the Mississippi and the home of Missouri artist George Caleb Bingham. There are a few B&Bs and a nice visitor center. The "Friends of Arrow Rock" give a great tour on a large golf cart. The state-run site itself, other than the visitor center, also has a campground and a small lake.
