Cuivre River State Park’s 6,394 acres are an anomaly to the agricultural landscape around it, featuring the ridges, hollows, gravelbottom streams, and bluff overlooking. There’s something for everyone at this attractive state park. Lincoln Lake, a 55-acre clear gem in the middle of the park, has a swimming beach, boat ramp, great fishing, and a 4-mile lakeside trail. There are excellent picnic sites, shelters for reunions, and group camps for overnight get-togethers. An equestrian camp serves horse enthusiasts, and several of the park’s trails are open for horseback riding. The diverse landscape in and around the park attracts a variety of wildlife, making it a great place for birders. Some 38 miles of trail meander through the park, exploring Big Sugar Creek Wild Area, North Woods Wild Area, and the Lincoln Hills Natural Area on loops ranging from 1 to 7 miles.

The trails were absolutely wonderful. The staff of park rangers and assistants couldn't have been more accomodating. I only wish more Missouri parks would mirror themselves from your park. Thank You,
