UPDATE - RV Park at City Lake

While opening is not projected until April 2019, work is underway at City Lake on the RV Park. Operating more or less under same rules at Missouri State Parks, the Lawson Park will have similar amenities.

The row of mostly dead elms will be replaced with oaks and pines. Once the road and parking lanes are finished, additional trees will be planted around each camping area. For more information, contact the Parks and Recreation Board or City Hall.
