JEFFERSON CITY, MO. – In an effort to ensure that the public has an opportunity to provide input regarding services in state parks and historic sites, the Missouri Department of Natural Resources invites you to bring your ideas to an informational meeting on Saturday, Oct. 3 at Lewis and Clark State Park near Rushville. The meeting will be held from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. at the open shelter house and is open to the public.

Representatives from the park will provide information on future plans for the park and answer questions. Visitors are invited to share comments and suggestions about the park. Based partially on previous comments and input from the public, the Department is currently replacing the septic system from the campground’s shower house, which is also getting repainted on the outside and modernized on the inside.

Lewis and Clark State Park is located 20 miles southwest of St. Joseph off of Highway 45 on Highway 138. The open shelter house is located near the park’s office in the day-use area. Persons requiring special services or accommodations to attend the meeting can make arrangements by calling the park directly at 816-640-5443 or by calling the Department of Natural Resources toll free at 800-334-6946 (voice) or 800-379-2419 (Telecommunications Device for the Deaf).
