“Fish the Picturesque Lake!”
Looking for a place to get a watersports fix? Long Branch State Park’s three boat ramps provide access to sprawling and picturesque Long Branch Lake. Want to get some fishing in? The park offers some of the best bass fishing in northern Missouri and its swimming beach a is a favorite for families. More than 80 campsites make the park a perfect place for overnight stays. And the park’s native prairie offers peaceful hiking opportunities. Bee Trace Trail gives hikers a chance to experience several different landscapes on one trail. The first landscape is native prairie landscape, which once covered a good portion of Missouri. The trail then travels through savanna landscape and into woodlands. The Bee Trace Peninsula contains the 384-acre Bee Trace Natural Area, offering impressive views of these different terrains plus some great views of the lake. This trail contains some steep hills and water crossings without bridges. The trail is mowed grass in most area with some spots of dirt tread. An area along the trail is open for camping by backpackers; open fires are not allowed in the backpack camp.
This was a great place to camp for a family. Camp sites aren’t too close. Great restroom and shower house that was stocked and clean all the time. Fun beach and hiking trails. We will definitely come back.
I really liked this park, the lake was beautiful and it looked like a really fun place to spend the day. I was only there for an hour, but what I saw was amazing. I'll be back!!
