A very safe and quiet place to go camping with fishing on site at the lake or just a short ride to Black River

This park is the access point to the highest point in Missouri. Some great views. Also near the man-made disaster, the breaching of the Ameren dam that sent billions of gallons of water into Johnson's Shut-Ins State Park below.
