Many Missouri state parks are home to impressive rock formations, especially those in the Ozarks. Rappelling and rock climbing are allowed at five of those state parks.
Near us, we have two of those state parks. Johnson's Shut-Ins and Elephant Rocks are the two that rappelling and rock climbing are permitted. The sport is allowed only during certain months, and a permit must be obtained from the park office prior to your visit. Rock climbing is allowed at Johnson's Shut-Ins State Park from the day after Labor Day through the Wednesday before Memorial Day.
