Product Details

Swift waters of the Black River flowing around some of the oldest exposed rocks in the nation have formed a series of canyonlike gorges or shut-ins in Johnson's Shut-Ins State Park. The 8,470-acre park, which has been left mostly as wilderness, contains more than 900 species of plants. It is a major trail head for the 500-mile-long Ozark Trail, which is under development. The park contains picnic areas and a campground. Pets are not allowed at the shut-ins and access to the park is limited, so there may be a wait to enter. <br><br><b>Directions:</b>&nbsp;&nbsp;8 miles north of Lesterville on Hwy. N in Reynolds County.
