2022 Public Informational Meetings

The public is strongly encouraged to follow social-distancing guidelines and be proactive in protecting themselves and others.

As part of an ongoing effort by Missouri State Parks to ensure citizens have input regarding the facilities and services offered in state parks and historic sites, informational meetings will be held throughout 2022. Park representatives will provide information on future plans for the facility and answer questions. Visitors are invited to share feedback and suggestions about park services and operations.

See the schedule below for information on an informational meeting at a state park or historic site near you. Informational meetings scheduled as videos will have links posted when they are available for viewing.
