Knob Noster State Park

Park Information

Knob Noster State Park is a tranquil idyllic oasis mixture of prairie, open woodland and forest along both sides of a meandering creek. It’s a place for fishermen to wet a line, for mountain bikers, hikers and horseback riders to get some trail time, and for families to spend quality time together. It’s also a place for aviation enthusiasts to stay in the campground and watch the B-2 Spirit bombers take off and land at nearby Whiteman Air Force Base.

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.
