Swimming in the crystal clear Black River
Swimming in the crystal clear Black River is the pastime that is enjoyed the most. You can't beat the opportunities the river offers to young and old alike. The kids love the many activities the river offer, like catching tadpoles, crawdads, and fish. Building sand castles is also a must for the kids. Families love to spend the entire day playing in the cool water and then building a fire for roasting hotdogs, marshmallows and s'mores in the evening. The convenience of our private pavilion also adds enjoyment for the family.
Swimming the Black River can be done right on our property or you can venture out into other areas of the Black River.
One of the state's premier swimming holes is at Johnson's Shut-Ins State Park, where the Black River has carved out chutes and pools in the ancient rocks. To get a better look at Johnson Shut-Ins State Park, you can visit missouristateparks.net.
