Echo Bluff State Park Lodge

About This Center

The new Echo Bluff State Park is the complete, quintessential Missouri Ozark destination. As your Basecamp for Ozark Adventures, Echo Bluff State Park is the perfect combination of a remote location and connected accessibility to the best of the Ozarks.

With the Current River a half-mile away, Echo Bluff State Park is set in a valley surrounded by towering bluffs, unsullied forest and cut by the Sinking Creek (the Current River’s second largest tributary).

Echo Bluff State Park and the surrounding areas are ideal for outdoor activities. Fill your days floating down cool, crystal waters. Tackle some of the best smallmouth bass fishing in the Midwest. Enjoy kayaking, mountain biking, and of course, hiking miles of scenic trails ideal for both serious backpackers longing to explore the rugged backcountry and families looking for a serene day hike.

Or you just may prefer to relax in the shadow of the park’s namesake, Echo Bluff. This sheer, monumental geologic wonder made of Eminence dolomite rises hundreds of feet above Sinking Creek. It is a stunning, one-of-a-kind panorama that amazes all park visitors and overnight guests.
