Park Information

Standing at the point where two of the nation’s mightiest rivers merge, Edward “Ted” and Pat Jones-Confluence Point State Park provides a unique perspective on America. Confluence Point is where Western expansion really began and where the Lewis and Clark Expedition set off on its journey up the Missouri. The park’s wetlands are part of the Mississippi Flyway, making it a great place to see waterfowl, including bald eagles and raptors.
