Located where the prairie meets the Ozarks, land once mined has been returned to nature, providing unique habitat for a variety of game and outdoor activities.
Opportunities for fishing, hiking, hunting, wildlife photography and more abound in this scenic gateway to Branson in the Northwest Ozarks. Whether you are an experienced outdoors man, a beginner or a hobbyist, you’ll find the outdoor experience you’re looking for in Crawford County.
The Osage Cuestas make up the northwestern portion of Crawford County and feature a rolling grassland, limestone bluffs, and heavily timbered bottom land. The Cherokee Lowlands distinguish the southeastern half of Crawford County with thick brush and timber, and rich coal resources.
The Mined Land Wildlife Areas (15,000 acres) offer grasslands, woodlots and waterways that will stir the senses and bring a tingling rush with each splash of water or flurry and flutter in the shadows and nodding grasses.
