Morse Mill Park

The beautiful Big River is waiting for you at Morse Mill Park. Small mouth bass, crappie, catfish and other game fish are ready to test your angling skills. If fishing is not for you, you may want to use the beach and watch the water shoot through the Old Mill dam.  This is also a great location to launch your canoe or inner tube for a fun filled 10.9 mile float to Cedar Hill Park.


Fee: Park security is provided during selected hours. As a result, a parking and security fee is collected during specified times. State fishing regulations are imposed.  PETS ARE NOT ALLOWED! 


A "Patrons of the Parks" pass is available to Jefferson County residents ONLY! in addition, you must be at least 55 years of age and/or a veteran of our Armed Services to be eligible. For a one time $20 fee, the cardholder and anyone else in their vehicle can enter any Jefferson County park facility at no charge. Contact any park cashier or our office at 636-797-5334 or email at for details.


 NOTICE: The Big River is a swift moving stream.  Strong currents produce dnagerous swimming conditions.  Life guards are not on duty.  SWIMMING AND WADING IS NOT RECOMMENDED!
