The Big River is the focal point of this facility as it supports recreational activities for the citizens of Jefferson County. Utilizing the resources of the Big River, amenities include a concrete boat ramp providing upstream access to the river for fishing and boating. We do not recommend wading or swimming in the Big River. In addition, primitive camping facilities, picnic tables and restrooms are available. This 10 (ten) acre facility is heavily used and has been the preferred site for many families.
This facility is located within a designated Smallmouth Bass Trophy area. This designation is one of several throughout the State of Missouri intended to identify above average fishing areas and ensure that the habitat and fishing quality maintain a high standard. Because of this designation, special restrictions apply. Be sure you contact the Missouri Department of Conservation regarding these restrictions and know them before you fish.
