Thank you for expressing interest in volunteering for Cuivre River State Park. We have a wide range of volunteer opportunities that all help maintain the beauty of the park. These can range from a few hours of picking up trash, helping remove overgrown brush on a trail, removing invasive species, group volunteer days, multiple-month long stays as a campground host, and more! Volunteers are an essential part of Cuivre River State Park's team, and we look forward to learning about all your talents! Feel free to call the Visitor Center at 636-528-7247 to learn more about upcoming volunteer opportunities and ask about our volunteer meetings. 

About Cuivre River State Park

Looking for the Ozarks in northern Missouri? Cuivre River State Park is one of the state’s largest and most rugged parks!

Cuivre River State Park lends a wilder, Ozarkian flavor to the otherwise predominately agricultural landscape of northern Missouri. Although not far from St. Louis, the park is a nature lover’s paradise. It is an outdoor delight to stroll through the park in the spring when flowering dogwood is in bloom or in the fall when the trees are ablaze with autumn colors.

The park is perfect whether you want to enjoy an afternoon visit or spend a few days. Both basic and modern campsites are available, and Lake Lincoln offers swimming, boating and fishing. The park’s wild and natural areas provide hiking, backpacking, photography and wildlife observation activities. There is also an equestrian trail with a campground for overnight stays.
