Current River State Park is a new state park being developed by the state of Missouri. It is located on 780 acres (3.2 km2) of land along the Current River located north of Eminence in Shannon County. The park consists of land and buildings originally developed by the Alton Box Board Company of Alton, Illinois, as a corporate retreat in the late 1930s and early 1940s. Many of the rustic buildings are listed on the National Register of Historic Places.[1] As of the summer of 2012 the park is open, for day use only, on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays while development continues.[2]
