    Drove to the park during a visit which took us to Johnson-Shut-Ins and Elephant Rocks. There is primitive camping and some trails. The trails are probably pretty good, but none of us chose to walk ano...  more »

    First of all, the signage is horrible. The signs are very unclear in steering you to Missouri's highest point, and then once you get to the correct parking lot you're left to simply guess that the tra...  more »

    Very nice park. Features include a small plaque which marks the point of highest elevation in the state of Missouri and a fire tower (accessible by stairs) which offers incredible views. There are pav...  more »

    Scenic location! Check out the lookout tower. However the two things preventing me from rating a 5. The lookout tower had the gate door at the top locked for the entire weekend. The toilet paper ran out for the tent camping, and they turned off the water! So no fresh drinking water. Not sure if there was maintenance, but no signage. As a result with no drinking fountain, things become difficult! For $13 per night you do get a non crowded tent camping ground, however the nearby Johnson shut ins has showers, restrooms with water, and drinking water for $8.50 a night. Plus swimming holes! Next time I would choose that site, but make sure you have a reservation at JSI!

    Beautiful location with good views. But beware it is a steep hike. My daughter and I had fun climbing down the falls.

    I had never been here until Memorial Day but I will definitely be coming back. It is less than two hours away yet you feel so far away from the city. I will be back in the winter to see the falls frozen.

    The trail to Mina Sauk Falls is difficult. It is rocky and has steep terrain. The views are beautiful, though.

    We hiked much of the Ozark Trail between Johnson's Shut-Ins and Taum Sauk Mountain. It was beautiful and very rugged. I loved the terrain of the land. There were many gorgeous scenes to see along the way.
