Lake Lincoln - Cuivre River State Park in Missouri

A self-supported trip created by guest-paddler

Trip Overview

Lake Lincoln is located in Cuivre River State Park. It's a wonderful lake for a day trip or quick paddle after work. The best thing about this body of water is that it is normally very clear. It will take you about an hour and a half to paddle the length of the shoreline. The fishing is good and there is plenty of wildlife to see or photograph. The Park has a camp ground as well.
