Lane Spring Recreation Area

5 star(s) from 1 votes
Open March 1 through October 31


This recreation area is a jewel of the Ozarks set along Little Piney Creek and provides easy access from Highway 63. This very popular area is a gathering place for a day’s outing. There are two trails and the creek, a Wild Trout Management Area, has a rainbow trout population as well as bass and sunfish. A sidewalk leads from the parking lot to a shaded stone patio overlooking tranquil Lane Spring. The beautiful surroundings have made it a popular spot for weddings.

From Rolla, MO go 12 miles south on Hwy 63, turn west onto Forest Road 1892 (marked by a large Forest Service sign). Follow this road for 1.5 miles to the picnic area and go a little farther to the campground.
