Jubilee Celebration at Prairie State Park

The beauty of Prairie State Park reveals itself, slowly, to first-time visitors.

“People are used to trees and water – this is more about large landscapes and great vistas,” said Katy Holmer, natural resource steward of the park near the Kansas state line in the southwest corner of Missouri.

“It’s best to get out on the trails and experience the winds and the clouds, the vastness of the prairie.”
