Maramec Spring Park
(St. James, Missouri)
Maramec Spring Park is home to the fifth largest spring in Missouri, averaging 100 million gallons of water every day, and is one of four Missouri trout parks. Truly one of Missouri's great natural preservations, the park is comprised of 1,860 acres full of wildlife and visitor amenities. Tour the Meramec River Rearing Facility and feed the trout, view the spring, and explore the many natural wonders of the landscape. The park boasts a cafe, 2 museums displaying cultural and natural history, self-guided walking trails, a store, a historic drive and, of course, great trout fishing. The Massey Iron Works operated here from 1826 to 1876 and was the first successful iron works west of the Mississippi River. There are several varied tales about why the spelling of "Maramec" is different from "Meramec," as in the river. But, the bottom line in all the stories is the same. Lucy James acquired ownership of the spring and surrounding land from her grandfather. Upon her death in 1938, she made her residuary estate part of a trust and authorized creation of The James Foundation for the enjoyment of the people. Because the spring was historically spelled "Maramec," she felt it important to keep it that way. The park is rich with history and offers annually sponsored events including Girls Gone Fishing and Old Ironworks Day, to mention a few. A nominal park entrance fee is imposed.

Elephant Rocks State Park
(Pilot Knob, Missouri)
Enormous granite boulders dating back 1.5 billion years stand end-to-end like a line of circus elephants. Many of the elephant rocks lie within the seven-acre Natural Area which is recognized for its impressive geologic value. The Natural Area at Elephant Rocks State Park can easily be viewed from the 1 mile Braille Trail that was developed especially for people with visual or physical disabilities. The Braille Trail is the first of its kind in Missouri state parks. Just outside the park is the oldest granite quarry in the state. Established in 1869, the quarry provided stone for parts of the Eads Bridge across the Mississippi River. The park features 30 picnic sites amongst the giant red boulders and a playground is also available, making a trip to Elephant Rocks State Park perfect for a family outing. Guests visiting Elephant Rocks State Park may want to travel a few additional miles to visit the Fort Davidson Historic Site.
