Missouri State Parks is celebrating 100 years! The park system offers prairies, battlefields, covered bridges, ancient Indian villages, forested hills and valleys with caves and spring, streams with trout, lakes with bass and the homes of honored artists, pioneers, soldiers and statesmen.
The park system was officially established on April 9, 1917. Since then, the system has grown to include 88 state parks and historic sites throughout the state. With more than 150,000 acres available to the public, there are a wide variety of opportunities to hike, camp, fish, discover the past and explore nature.
