River State Park
a virtual tour of the park
Cuivre River State Park lends a wilder, Ozarkian flavor to the otherwise
predominately agricultural landscape of northern Missouri. Although
not far from St.
Louis, the park is a nature lover's paradise. A stroll through the
park in the spring when many woodland wildflowers are in bloom or
in the fall when the prairie grasses tower over your head is an
outdoor delight. Spend a few days at the park. Both primitive and
modern campsites are available, and Lake Lincoln offers swimming,
boating and fishing. The park's two wild areas provide hiking, backpacking,
photography and wildlife observation activities. There are also
equestrian trails and a campground for overnight stays. Three natural
areas noted for their high-quality ecosystems feature native prairie,
sinkhole ponds, woodlands and a clear, rock-bottomed stream. Big
Sugar Creek is one of the finest undisturbed streams left in northeastern
Missouri. Several trails lead through the Lincoln Hills Natural
Area and its many unique natural features. Whether for a few hours
or a few days, come visit one of the state's largest and most rugged
parks. You will find Cuivre River State Park to be an Ozarklike
island in north Missouri's rolling plains.

Drive. It has two covered shelters. The largest one contains kitchen

Woods Fort is Troy's most historical park area. The land was given
to the city in 1819 by the founding fathers, Deacon Cottle and
Zadock Woods. A natural spring ran on this lot and provides the
area with resources for growth until blasting stopped the flow
of water during the construction of Highway 47.
On the lot now stands two log cabins, which were reassembled and
are currently being used to house "Santa" during Christmas
festivities and for community and civic celebrations. A memorial
marker describing the historical back ground of the lot is on
the grounds. Benches and tables are on the area located across
the street at the intersection of Boone and Main Street. Cabin
rental is $25.
Woods Fort Golf
The 18-hole "Woods Fort"
course at the Woods Fort Country Club facility in Troy, Missouri
6,404 yards of golf from the longest tees for a par of 72.
The course rating is 71.8 and it has a slope rating of 129. Designed
by Jerry Loomis, the Woods Fort golf course opened in 1994. This
course was built on gently rolling hills, so you can expect some
uneven lies. The fairways are relatively wide and generous, and
the greens are average sized and flat. Water hazards come into play
on four holes. The signature hole is #7: a 345 yard, Par 4 requiring
a shot over a creek to a well-bunkered landing area, then an approach
shot to a small sloping green guarded by a lake in front and out
of bounds on the right.
