The beautiful Taum Sauk Mountain Campground is your entryway into nature’s very own real-life water park. If you love nature, and definitely if you love water, you need to get over here ASAP. You can also conquer the highest point of Missouri right here at Taum Sauk Mountain State Park. The trails are hugged by hickory forests and rocky glades that provide a beautiful, solitary experience for those looking for a rewarding and unique adventure. This is also an area rich with cultural narrative, as it is said that the spring on the top of the mountain, which contributes to the flows of the waterfalls, was originally formed by a bolt of lightning sent down by the Storm King. Now that's a story we can get behind!
