Rolla, Missouri

The Mark Twain National Forest is a beautiful park to explore if you have some time to spare while on your travels. Not only can you hike and observe beautiful trees and plants, but there are tons of animals as well. It is said that among the animals there are bears, so tourist should beware for those. The St. Francis River goes in this park, where you can do fun activities such as kayaking, white water rafting, and more. You can stop by Silver Mines (https://www.recreation.gov/camping/silver-mines/r/campgroundDetails.do?contractCode=NRSO&parkId=70800), where you can settle in for the night and go camping right by the river. However, they have other camping sites in the park as well.
