Brown's Ford Park

This three (3) acre facility provides access to the Big River for fishing and canoeing.   Amenities include a concrete boat ramp, picnic tables, restrooms and a parking area.  This facility is located within a designated Smallmouth Bass Trophy area.  This designation is one of several throughout the State of Missouri intended to identify above average fishing areas and ensure the habitat and fishing quality maintain a high standard.  Because of this designation special restrictions apply. Be sure you contact the Missouri Department of Conservation to become aware of the restrictions.  

If canoeing or floating is your choice of recreational activities, this facility offers an 18.3-mile trip to Morse Mill Park.  This is a long trip, so start early to assure you complete the journey before dark.
