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 Newton Township, 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 associated with the Alton Club are listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
Activities and amenities
The park offers fishing and boating on two small lakes, picnicking facilities, a 1.5-mile (2.4 km) hiking trail, and tours of the historic buildings. As of 2014, the park was open for day-use only on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays.
