Ozark Mountain State Park is an undeveloped public recreation area covering 1,011 acres (409 ha) in Taney County, Missouri. The state park is closed pending public input on future uses of the land. [2] [3] It was one of three new parks announced by Governor Jay Nixon in December 2016. [4] It shares a border with the Ruth and Paul Henning Conservation Area and is traversed by more than two miles of Roark Creek, including a stretch of the three-mile-long East Fork Roark Creek. [5] The site includes a one-room schoolhouse that served the former community of Garber. [6]
