I have an extended family member who likes to take a ride in his RV.  If he could ever keep his RV running, he would love to travel the Show Me State.  There a quite a lot of State Parks with some beautiful scenery and have great places to camp, and sleep in your RV.  One of those State Parks in Johnson Shut-In State Park and it is in the running for the best State Park.

Located in Lesterville Missouri (about 3 hours and 45 minutes from Sedalia), according to their Facebook page, here is how it is described:

Play in the shallows of the East Fork of the Black River. Shoot through Mother Nature’s hydraulics in the shut-ins. Hike a trail that will show you 1.4 billion years of geologic history. Take your horse on a pretty mountain trail. Johnson’s Shut-Ins State Park is a jewel of the system, a place with something for everyone: pretty picnic areas, Ozark landscapes, natural places to swim, great campsites.
