Montauk State Park
Offering some of the finest trout fishing in the Midwest, Montauk State Park is located at the headwaters of the famed Current River.
During the early 1800s settlers established Montauk and it became a self-sufficient community. Visitors can see Montauk's gristmill built in 1896; it is still open seasonally for tours.
Located off Hwy. I44, approximately 40 miles south of St. James, MO, 1,400-acre Montauk State Park is open year-round. In addition to fishing, popular family excursions include camping, hiking, and biking. The Park has its own trout hatchery that can be toured and has a variety of overnight accommodation options including camp grounds, cabins and motel units. A full-service restaurant and retail store, complete with all fishing needs, is located inside the Dorman L. Steelman Lodge in the Park. The Park is a 3-hour drive from both St. Louis and Springfield, MO.
