Trenton, MO 64683
The rolling green hills and deep ravines of Crowder State Park
provide 1,912 user-friendly acres where visitors can camp, picnic, hike
- or just take it easy.
Crowder State Park is the perfect park for the visitor who wants to
escape the pace of city life and enjoy the outdoors in a relaxing,
peaceful environment. Much of the park is covered with thick forest
that displays a diverse population of trees, plants and flowers. Many
types of wildlife - including deer, raccoons and wild turkeys - also
make their homes in the forests of Crowder State Park.
Crowder State Park is a commemorative park dedicated to the memory
of Maj. Gen. Enoch H. Crowder, one of several important American
military leaders who was nurtured in the hills of northern Missouri.
Thompson River Trail follows the river for roughly eight miles and permits equestrian use in addition to hiking and bicycling.
