St. Joe State Park, Park Hills, MO

The State of Missouri is looking for a concessionaire to operate  a concession building at St. Joe State Park.  The concession operation will be open beginning on or about May 1 until Oct. 31.  The concession building is a permanent structure located in the Off Road Vehicle (ORV) Staging Area.  The building has running water, electricity and propane.  The kitchen equipment includes a 24” griddle, two-burner stove with an oven, a 20 cubic foot refrigerator, 20 cubic foot freezer, commercial microwave oven and shelving and display units for storage of dry goods and retail items. 

St. Joe State Park is Missouri’s third largest park and is located in southeast Missouri.  The 2,000 acre off-road vehicle (ORV) facility allows enthusiasts to zoom across one of the most popular ORV areas in the Midwest.  The more than 8,000-acre park also provides trails and camping for ORV enthusiasts, equestrians and other guests while anglers, paddlers,  and swimmers can enjoy the lakes.

All interested parties should contact Vicki Hutson via telephone call, letter, fax or e-mail for additional information or to receive a bid package.
