  • Beautiful space to spend a morning or afternoon exploring the paths and discovering wildlife! Great for any age group, and the winding road around the park means that even the less mobile can get about to enjoy the sites and sounds. Worth the small admission fee!
  • Had alot of fun, staff was great and everything around the reserve looked very well maintained. Only wouldnt really make an effort to go again because its too far of a drive. But if you're headed to sixflags i recommend stopping by there too its very relaxing.
  • Shaw's is a great place to hike/walk and experience the beauty that exists in every season here in Missouri. I personally like hiking in all kinds of weather as well. They are open just about every day of the year besides holidays. I do recommend getting a membership there.
  • Scenic. Best place for pictures in nature. Hiking and running trails!
  • This place is amazing. Small fee but totally worth it.
