We are taking it for “granite” you will be at Johnson’s Shut-Ins Inaugural “Rocktober Run.”
Join us for our first ever 5K run and 1 mile Fun Walk. The race will take you from the day-use area main parking lot through the park along the new Black River Trail. Awards for the top three winners in each age division** will be presented at the end of the race.
Whether you are running, walking or enjoying the race as a spectator, be sure to travel the ¼ mile trail to the overlook at the name sake of the park, “The Shut-Ins”. This is Mother Nature “running” at her best as the East Fork of the Black River winds its way through the rhyolite boulders formed by volcanic eruptions so many millions of years ago.
you love camping and floating or
just relaxing and exploring Missouri's
natural wonders from the comfort of a Bed
and Breakfast Inn, Lodge or Cabin,
the Black River Area in the Ozarks is the perfect
getaway or family vacation spot away from the city. Enjoy
Missouri canoeing at
its best, or choose to take a relaxing float in rafts,
tubes or kayaks. Only two hours southwest
of St. Louis, we are the hub of recreational activities
in the Southeast Missouri Ozarks. Visit Taum
Sauk, Missouri's highest mountain, the Ozark Trail,
Bell Mountain Wilderness Area and Mark Twain National
Forest. Elephant Rocks is close by and don't
miss Fort Davidson Historic site. We also have
