This 983-acre state park was once the home of Missouri Indians, who inhabited the area through the early 1700s. Prehistoric Indian tribes in this area predated the Missouri, and their burial mounds are located within the park. Park highlights include the 'old fort,' a six-acre Missouri Indian earthwork construction, whose purpose remains unknown. The park features black walnut and oak trees located in the hilly terrain of the Missouri River floodplain. Park amenities include a visitor center, campground, picnic area, hiking trails and an 18-acre fishing lake. The park is 12 miles west of Marshall.
