Featured Stop: Van Meter State Park

The Van Meter State Park features remnants of a Missouri Indian village. A hand-dug earthwork and a few burial mounds are found within park boundaries. The park’s cultural center interprets the region’s Native American history through exhibits and a large mural depicting day-to-day the life among the Missouri Indians.

Park attractions include hiking trails, an 18-acre fishing lake, a campground, a fresh-water marsh, fens and forests. Lofty trees provide shade for picnic sites and two picnic shelters.
