    Neighbors to The North

    The thousands upon thousands of people who come to McDonald County, Mo., each summer are well aware of what a not-so-hidden treasure the area’s streams are.

    Canoeing, rafting, kayaking and fishing are enjoyed from one end of the county to the other. Big Sugar and Little Sugar creeks join in Pineville to form the Elk River. Indian Creek flows into the river between Lanagan and Noel, making that section of the river the most popular.

    But campgrounds and outfitters can be found from the Powell area in eastern McDonald County to near the Missouri-Oklahoma line, where the Elk spills into Grand Lake.

    The rivers offer spectacular views of bluff-topped forests of natural beauty. But there are many other things for visitors to take in.
