Please, see my tips on this park. It is only three miles from center of town. Lots to room to swim, picnic, use your boat and hike! There is a really large lake, that I would need a boat to see all of it. Here are two photos of the lake.
I love this park because its really convenient (right off Highway 6 in Kirksville--opposite direction from Walmart off of 63). You can take a picnic and lay by the water and go hiking or whatever...it's just a nice way to relax! They also have an incredibly overpriced restaurant and you can rent canoes or paddleboats by the hour for relatively cheap prices!
