From Trailer Life: The Gasconade is not a canoe freeway, like some float streams. It's more like a country lane. Some days you can float for miles without seeing another boat. The Gasconade River is the longest river completely within the boundary of Missouri. It begins near Hartville and flows into the Missouri River near Hermann... A visit to Gasconade Hills can provide affordable family entertainment.

Please Note: You will need to purchase your fishing license prior to your visit.  You may do so on-line at -- We do not have fishing licenses for sale.

Come for the Fishing!

From Sports Afield: Many consider the Gasconade the finest float stream in Missouri. It's a river of caves and springs and wildlife, of solitude and beauty. And there's a plus for anglers: The Gasconade has very lively populations of largemouth and smallmouth bass... What's more, the river is underfished.
