Painted Rock Conservation Area

Painted Rock Conservation Area consists of 1,480 acres. The Osage River intersects the property along the western boundary. Breathtaking views are offered from the Scenic Trail at two boardwalks and other locations. 

The forest contains six ponds, which are managed primarily for wildlife, and Clubhouse Lake. The lands show evidence of occupation by American Indians as early as 9,000 years ago. An Indian burial cairn, located along Osage Scenic Bluff trail, was constructed between 500 and 1,500 years ago. 

Area activities include bird watching, camping, fishing, hiking and hunting.
