Overview

Stroll through the history of a once-bustling river town that’s now the serene village of Arrow Rock. You’ll walk streets lined with the architecture of the historic “Boone’s Lick Country.” At Arrow Rock State Historic Site, you may wander into the historic Old Tavern, which dates back to 1834 and provides a dining experience in a period setting or see displays of old-time wares at the Huston Store. You can learn about it all through exhibits in the visitor center. The historic site is part of the larger Village of Arrow Rock, which features quaint stores and a bevy of antique shops.

This historic site displays the history of this area of Missouri. It's free to visit. If you go, be sure to dine at near by J. Huston Tavern - it's delicious!

The campground is one of the best I've seen. As for the town of Arrow Rock, it was OK but nothing spectacular. I do recommend eating at the J. Huston Tavern.

To avoid the heat wave of the previous week, we stayed in the campground on a Monday and Tuesday night. Very few neighbors and our family was excited to be able to see the stars at night. We loved the seclusion. We picked up more...More

Not a lot of shops to visit, but we found interesting items in the ones we went into. "A Grand Yarn" stayed open on the hottest days of summer even though their air conditioning had gone out, and we found a darling little bag/purse there...More

A few of the old building are open(2) but most are closed, but you can walk down one block with a boardwalk and look at shops with kitchy stuff you don't need or antiques. Not worth the 15 minute drive off the highway. Visitors center...More

Arrow Rock, Missouri is a bit off the beaten path in central Missouri, but has plenty to offer - a piece of early Missouri history, small shops, a nice cafe, and a quiet campground. We have camped here twice, and both times have enjoyed the...More
