What a great area to hike. We found many of the trail areas to be maintained well. They are not overgrown like most of Missouri trails. We enjoyed the river area especially. Too bad you can't backpack. Contrary to what this page says, you can't. I talked to the area manager and read the regulations online. Camping is only allowed in a 2 spots and both are very busy areas.
