Confluence of the Mississippi & Missouri Rivers. The Ted Jones Missouri State Park is here, and it is part of the Riverlands Corp of engineers area. Once at the confluence you can literally stand with the Mississippi River a few feet on one side and the Missouri River just steps away on the other side. Since the Missouri is a muddy brown color ir is unto actually watch the two rivers "mix" together,
River and riverbank environment. I have seen deer, turkeys, eagles and owls at the confluence.You will also have an opportunity to watch boat and barge traffic on the Mississippi and Missouri Rivers.
Visitor are largely on their own with maybe two to six visitors per hour. Visitors will need to drive about 5 miles on good gravel road to get to the Confluence. Once there a short trail takes you to the Confluence This is a very quiet, contemplative area.
