The GREAT RIVER ROAD Missouri highway 79 just outside of Clarksville Mo.
Great day trip from St. Louis or St. Charles Missouri.  Highway 79 follows
the Mississippi river from St. Charles Mo. to Hannibal Mo.
The views are unbelievable between Clarksville and Louisiana Mo. the highway
hugs the Mississippi river giving you many photo opportunities.  
Once you pass Louisiana Mo. the highway travels through a very hilly area
with many scenic overpass viewing areas before you enter historic Hannibal , Missouri.
Don't forget your camera, this road trip has a great photo memory
around every corner.

GREAT RIVER ROAD
DAY TRIP
Great place to stop for a day trip.  The park is open to the public, has boat launch ramp.  Great park to
have a private picnic, go kayaking or canoing.
The park is right off the highway, spend the day fishing, boating or just enjoying the river and view.  If you
want to camp Silo has about 6 primitive campsites that are open to the public at no charge.  Nice quiet
park to spend the weekend.  Click on any photo to enlarge, the last two photo's show the primitive
campsite and views from the campsites  
Great river town with a great riverfront park.  Also has a great river view
park just before you get to the junction of Hwy. 79 and Hwy. 54.  The
park is on a high bluff overlooking the Mississippi River.  The downtown
riverfront park has picnic tables, nice paved boat launching ramp.  
Great place to have lunch on your Great River Road day trip.
