Open house planned at Roaring River State Park

Wednesday, May 18, 2011

The public is invited to bring their ideas to an open house on Thursday, May 19 at Roaring River State Park near Cassville. The open house will be held at 6 p.m. in the River View Room of the Emory Melton Inn and Conference Center.

Both Roaring River State Park and Big Sugar Creek State Park near Pineville will be discussed during the meeting. Recent accomplishments and future plans at the both parks will be highlighted at the open house. Accomplishments at Roaring River include: remodeling the fourplex; the partial roof replacement at Camp Smokey; construction of the new Civilian Conservation Corps monument; and significant stewardship accomplishments. In addition, information will be presented on how the parks have and will continue to benefit from the efforts of the State Parks Youth Corps.

Representatives from the Missouri Department of Conservation, which operates the hatchery, and MO PARKS Inc., which runs the park concessions, will also be on hand to share comments with the attendees. Visitors are welcome to ask questions or comment on the park's facilities and services.

This open house is part of an ongoing effort to ensure the public has input on services provided in state parks and historic sites.

People requiring special services or accommodations to attend the open house can make arrangements by calling the park directly at 417-847-2539 or by calling the Department of Natural Resources toll free at 800-334-6946. For more information, visit mostateparks.com.
