Along the banks of the mighty Mississippi River is the Ted Shanks Conservation Area near Louisiana, Missouri. Not only is the Mississippi River to the north and east, but the conservation area is also bordered by the Salt River to the south and west, creating a perfect wetland environment. This prime location has created marshland, wetlands, oxbow lakes, and even a few dry grasslands. With this fertile variety, the Ted Shanks Conservation Area has become home to an abundance of wildlife, such as white-tailed deer, bald eagles, snapping turtles, and so much more. Whether you want to observe wildlife, try your skill at some fishing, or even go hunting, there is plenty to experience and enjoy.
For a truly unique landscape, spend the day at Reform Conservation Area near Kingdom City. The area known as Reform was once a community, originally settled in 1830 and growing to its height in 1884. However, in the 1970s, an energy company came in and bought up most of the land and turned the area into a nuclear power plant. Per an agreement with the Missouri Department of Conservation, the area around the nuclear power plant has been turned into a nature conservancy. Here, you can explore the open grasslands and the small sections of forest and keep your eye out for a variety of wildlife, such as white-tailed deer and rabbits. If you’re visiting the area in the summer, you can delight in the sunflower fields and are welcome to pick wild blackberries.
Lovers of lakes can head to Long Branch State Park in Macon, Missouri. With Long Branch Lake being the centerpiece of this state park, there is something for every water lover to indulge in and enjoy.

If you’d rather stay on dry land, you can slather on some sunscreen and relax on the beach, take a stroll around the lake, or explore the prairies. If you’re traveling with a motorhome rental in the spring or summer, the meadows come to life with wildflowers, creating beautiful and colorful mosaics across the landscape.
