Minnesota to Missouri

Main Destination:  Roaring River State Park in Missouri

Starting Point:  St. Paul, Minnesota

Easy spring break trip from Minnesota to anywhere in southern Missouri or Arkansas for that matter.  The main reason for staying at Roaring River is the trout fishing and teaching the kids or learning yourself a bit about trout.  Between southwest Missouri and northwest Arkansas, you will never run out of something to do.  Cross the border into Arkansas and you’ll find plenty of great mountain biking opportunities.  The whole week could be spent in this area versus breaking off early to stop in Kansas.  Our kids wanted to camp in Kansas, since they hadn’t covered that state yet and that is why we made the stop.  By the way; Lawrence, Kansas seems like a really nice town.
