Search Rushville Missouri

Lewis and Clark State Park is dedicated to explorers Meriwether Lewis and William Clark, who visited the area on July 4, 1804, on their epic westward journey. Their journal notes the "great quantities of fish an Gees & Goslings" they saw here, and of a nearby abandoned Kansa Indian village on the other side of the river. Today the 121-acre park has a shaded picnic area and shelter overlooking the lake, and modern camping facilities; the 365-acre lake offers opportunities for fishing, swimming and boating.
