Outlet Park, situated below the Pomme de Terre dam, provides a picturesque setting for fishing, canoeing, hiking and wildlife viewing on the Pomme de Terre River.
Above the dam lies Pomme de Terre Lake, nicknamed ''the Gem of the Ozarks'' for its deep, clear waters, plentiful activities and scenic views.
Of the 20 campsites, 19 have water and electric hookups and 1 non-electric site. Amentities include hot showers, a boat ramp, group camping, and a multipurpose playing court, multiple playgrounds, softball/baseball field, horse shoe pits, and a 3 mile walking trail.
The lake and dam are located in the rugged, tree-topped hills of the west-central Missouri Ozarks. The lake stems from the nearby Pomme de Terre River, the only river in the state that flows northbound.
Located a few miles away in the town of Wheatland is one of the country's best dirt tracks. There are also multiple trails, a golf course and Anglers Resort is the place to rent your canoes.
Outlet Park is excellent for sports. It marks the trailhead for the 3-mile Healthy Active Community Running River Trail and is also a hot spot for canoeing and kayaking.
Fishing is also a popular, with plenty of crappie and bass in the nearby waters.
