We took a little road trip up into Missouri last week to Roaring River State Park. It's just a little ways up the road from where we live, so why haven't I been back for like 40 years? In reality, I've been a little busy. We moved to the Gulf Coast, then we lived on the West Coast several years and then the East Coast. Finally back to the Midwest, Texas and then Arkansas. The most important thing, I found my way back to this beautiful place!
Roaring River runs along shady limestone bluffs, and over 20,000,000 gallons of water flow from the spring.each day. The park's hatchery stocks the streams with more trout each night. The abundance of fish allows visitors to bring home their catch of 4 trout every day.
You can see in this picture the deep blue spring- breathtaking! There are 7 trails cut through the park's rugged terrain, plus a lodge, cabins and beautiful campsites.
For 2 1/2 miles the icy cold water meanders along and fishermen dot the banks.
Let me mention one more time...you get to bring home 4 trout a day, no charge, as in FREE! Look at the size of these Trout
