Indian Cave State Park near Shubert
Lying in the hills on the banks of the Missouri, visitors can hike trails, camp, ride horses, and explore the ghost town of St. Deroin.

Or walk over to the old general store. There is a cave, as the name of the park suggests, but it has been closed for some time due to flooding.
