Overview

Piedmont Park is a spacious, activity-dense recreation area on the shores of Missouri's Clearwater Lake. Water sport enthusiasts love the lakes diverse offerings, from boating to jet skiing and canoeing to swimming.

Clearwater is considered a "wilderness lake" because it lacks private boat docks and offers plenty of unspoiled shorelines to explore. The beautiful area is enhanced each spring by flowering shrubs and trees like the redbud, hawthorn, dogwood and wild plum.

Natural Features:

Visitors can sit under the shade of a sycamore or maple tree and look out across the lake to the lush but rugged terrain of the Ozark foothills.

The vicinity is noted for the grandeur of its hills, natural springs, and general outdoor beauty. The shoreline is studded with high picturesque bluffs covered with sweet williams, indented bays and quiet coves.

Recreation:

Wildlife viewing is popular with wetland waterfowl, fox, deer and geese.

Picnicking is also a favorite pastime, as is lounging on the beach, boating and fishing.

Facilities:

Piedmont Park Campground offers 97 sites, including many with electric and water hookups. Additional amenities include a dump station, hot showers, picnic shelters, a boat ramp, playgrounds and a swimming area.
