Park Information

With locations on both the Hermitage and Pittsburg sides of Pomme de Terre Lake, Pomme de Terre State Park offers a little bit of everything. A marina and boat ramps make it easy to get in the water and fish for bass, walleye, catfish, crappie, or muskie. Two public swimming beaches make for great places to cool off or laze the day away. Two hiking trails satisfy an appetite for adventure. And more than 250 campsites make the park ideal for multi-day getaways.

As temperatures rise in the spring, it’s important to “be bear aware”. The American black bear population is increasing in Missouri and you may be fortunate enough to see one in their natural setting. Spring is the time when black bears emerge from their dens in search of food following the deep sleep of winter’s hibernation. The bear will forage for fruits, nuts, berries and other foods in the early spring. Their feeding habits will increase as food becomes more plentiful. Please remember that it’s important not to approach any wildlife you may see in our parks.
