Rock Bridge Memorial State Park is a state park in the US state of Missouri consisting of 2,272.83 acres (9.2 km2) located in Boone County, just south of Columbia, Missouri.

There are several excellent examples of karst landforms in the park including the rock bridge and Devil's Icebox cave located in the park.

Just minutes from Columbia, Rock Bridge Memorial State Park gives visitors the chance to scramble, hike and bicycle through a scenic environment – and lets them peek into Missouri’s underworld. The park contains some of the most popular hiking trails in the state and also offers solitude while hiking in the Gans Creek Wild Area. Visitors can also see a large cave system with its rock bridge, sinkholes, a spring and underground stream at the Devil's Icebox. You can explore Connor's Cave in the light of the opening for a taste of the underground world.[1]
