Finger Lakes State Park - Hiking & Backpacking


Finger Lakes State Park is a state park in the U.S. state of Missouri consisting of 1,128 acres (456 ha) in Boone County near the city of Columbia. The park is unusual in that the site was reclaimed after having been strip mined for coal. Between 1964 and 1967 the area was known as Peabody Coal's Mark Twain Mine, from which the company removed 1.2 million short tons (1.1 Tg) of coal. Peabody donated the land to the state for use as a park, and the state restored the site with one of a dozen federal grants issued with the intent to demonstrate the conversion of strip-mined land to recreational use.
