Hawn State Park
Many visitors believe that Hawn State Park is the loveliest of Missouri’s state parks, with forests of pine and oak, sandstone bluffs and canyons, and clear sand-bottom streams. The 4,953-acre park preserves some of the finest areas for viewing Missouri’s wide variety of natural wonders. The 2,880-acre Whispering Pine Wild Area offers excellent opportunities to backpack, bird watch or study nature. Covered with pine, oak and flowering dogwood trees, the area is home to a diverse set of plants, animals and birds. Pickle Creek, because of its high quality and pristine nature, has been designated as a state natural area. It is also one of the few places in the state where visitors can see such a wide variety of rock types exposed at the surface.
