Morris State Park is a public recreation area consisting of 161 acres (65 ha) in Dunklin County, Missouri. The state park preserves a section of Crowley's Ridge, a unique geologic feature of southeast Missouri and northeast Arkansas. The state park offers a two-mile hiking trail along a portion of the "geologic oddity." The park is named for businessman Jim D. Morris, who donated the parcel to the state in 1999. [3]
