COVID-19 Travel Information

Huzzah Conservation Area

The area consists of more than 6,000 acres of rugged forest terrain in prime Ozark country, plus sections of the Meramec River, Huzzah and Courtois creeks. Take a canoe or kayak to access these streams for a day of fishing and floating.

For hikers, the area includes six miles of the Ozark Trail. The Narrows, located in the extreme southwest portion of the area, is a narrow hogback ridge that features extremely steep topography and rapidly changing vegetation from ridge to creek bottom. 

Bear Cave and Bat Cave add to the site's geology.

Primitive campsites are open from September 15-May 15 only.

To reach the area, cross the Meramec River at the end of Route H at Onondaga Cave State Park; or go northeast of Steelville on Route E and cross the low-water bridge at Huzzah Creek.
