Mark Twain Lake – It’s that time of year again when the Indian Creek Campground at Mark Twain Lake is invaded by a full cast of creepy characters!  The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is proud to announce the return of the Annual Halloween Walk on both Friday, October 17 from 6:00 pm – 9:00 pm and Saturday, October 18 from 4:00 pm – 9:00 pm..  This is a great chance for the little ones to “sharpen their trick-or-treating skills” or for the older ones to come see what all the excitement is about.  Everyone is invited to come in costume and don’t forget your flashlight!

     The Fox and Eagle Point loops will be closed to all vehicle traffic during event hours.  In order to provide a safe experience for participants and visitors you are asked to leave your pets at home.

The Mark Twain Lake Chamber of Commerce will be charging an admission fee of $5.00 per vehicle for each night of the event to help provide park visitor safety services for the event and other incidental expenses related to the event.  Only registered campers who have paid a camping fee and show their correlating white hang tag will be exempt from this charge.  The charge will not be taken at the fee booth but rather at the entrance to the East Campground, where the event takes place.  Having exact change upon approaching the event will help expedite wait time and reduce long lines at the entry point.

The M.W. Boudreaux Memorial Visitor Center at the south end of Cannon Dam will be closed October 17 – October 19 in order for staff members to work at the Halloween event.

The Indian Creek Campground is located south of Monroe City.  Take Highway 24 to State Road HH.  Follow the signs to spooky fun!  All reservable campsites have been reserved but non-reservable sites will be available on a first-come-first-serve basis in person only.  If you need additional information about the event, please contact the Mark Twain Lake Project Office at 573-735-4097 or email us at
