Thousand Hills State Park

Thousand Hills State Park Stamp

The cool waters of Forest Lake provide the centerpiece for Thousand Hills State Park, whose woody shores and broad savannas recall a time when northern Missouri was far less developed. The lake offers fishing, swimming and boating. The park offers hiking, mountain biking, and abundant opportunities to see wildlife. An interpretive shelter helps visitors understand the petroglyphs left behind by the area’s inhabitants more than 1,500 years ago. The park also offers campsites and cabins for overnight stays.

At the park’s petroglyph site, ancient rock carvings of images such as crosses, arrows, snakes, thunderbirds and other animals can be found.
