Annie and Abel Van Meter State Park

The Missouria Indians, who gave their name to the state and river, inhabited this area. The park features remnants of the Missouria Indian village that sat at the Great Bend of the Missouri River. A hand-dug earthwork, called the Old Fort, and several burial mounds lie within the park.

Exhibits inside Missouri’s American Indian Cultural Center showcase the park’s history and the history of American Indians in Missouri.

Picnicking, camping, fishing and trails, including a boardwalk trail through the park’s wetland, are available.

The park is located 12 miles northwest of Marshall.
