Because of major damage caused by flooding of the Missouri River, Big Lake State Park is closed indefinitely.
The 625-acre Oxbow Lake, 11 miles southwest of Mound City, is perfect for fishing. The park offers lodging, camping, dining, a swimming pool, a snack bar, a store and picnicking. It is an ideal area for bird watching, as it lies along a major migratory flyway.
Meriwether Lewis and William Clark noted great quantities of fish, geese and goslings here in 1804. Bordering Lewis and Clark Lake, this park is still a great place for bird watching. Camping, picnicking, fishing, a boat ramp and a beach are features. Located 20 miles southwest of St. Joseph off Route 138.
