Lane Spring Recreation Area is a pleasant little spot for an afternoon or weekend escape. Though it’s close to the city of Rolla, it’s a hidden enclave in the valley of Little Piney Creek that feels like the middle of nowhere. Completely renovated in 1996, the picnic area and campground are wonderful places to relax and enjoy the outdoors. Lane Spring is great for families or other groups too—the picnic area has pavilions for reunions, a playground for kids, and a field big enough for softball games or tossing a Frisbee around.
