  • The parks in this area are really good. We were there for an extended weekend. We took the Dog. Most of the parks are pet friendly. There are some that are not. You won't be disappointed with the ones...  more »
  • Sometimes, the view is blocked by the trees. The highest point in Missouri, offers no view. The Hike is rugged over rocky, granite trails. Not too hilly. The highest waterfall in Missouri was dry. Pro...  more »
  • We hiked the Mina Sauk Falls Trail. There was no water at the trailhead. I recommend going to the bathroom in town and recommend filling up your water bottles before you leave your lodging. The falls ...  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.
