Roaring River

Roaring River State Park is one of four state trout parks, located near Cassville in southwest Missouri. The river primarily starts at Roaring River Spring, which provides about 200 million gallons of cold, clear water each day for the trout hatchery and the fishing stream below. The hatchery raises more than 270,000 trout annually that are stocked in the river each day during the season. The park also has facilities for camping, lodging, eating and more.
