River trumps Creek

The river which touches one edge of the 6,400 arces of park was given naming rights over the eight miles of creek within the park. Hence you visit Cuivre River State Park, rather than Big Sugar Creek.

Bluff, forest, and creek, combine to make this park one of the popular places for group camping a pleasant drive north of the St. Louis metro area. The facilities also include a lake for fishing and swimming, sinkholes where rare species survive, a visitor center, and equestrian trails.

A great picnic companion. It is easy to imagine this area having been cleared by a controlled burn and now showing off prairie flowers and grasses as well as forest.

At sunrise, the world displays a moment of hope and promise. The observation of Serena Carter, photographer, in Morning Tryst, a sweet romance.
