While parks and historic sites are open for day-use, capacity will be monitored closely in order to prevent overcrowding. If nearing capacity, parking lots may close temporarily. Missouri State Parks has implemented a number of measures designed to maintain required social distancing and protect visitors, volunteers and staff.

Clear waters, dramatic bluffs and vibrant summer and fall colors make Harry S Truman State Park an ideal place to vacation. Located on a peninsula, the park offers a marina, ample fishing and boating opportunities, and water that’s perfect for every kind of swimmer. Hiking trails, picnic areas and campsites dot the park’s open oak woodlands and provide a home for abundant wildlife.
