Opportunities for active and passive recreation are overflowing in the South County area. Acres of Missouri State parks, nature centers, recreation centers, a local YMCA, conservation areas and more are among some of the region’s finest places for indoor and outdoor leisure throughout the year.

Around 30 major parks and 62,000 acres of water make up the landscape of South County. Nearby is the famous Lake of the Ozarks, an outdoor lover’s paradise featuring campgrounds and plenty of diversions including hiking and biking trails, boating, swimming, and additional water sports.

Golf enthusiasts appreciate the offerings of a number of fantastic courses spread throughout the region—many of which have been designed and constructed by leading course architects. Golf legends such as Hale Irwin, Jack Nicklaus and Arnold Palmer have all put their signatures on the local golf scene in recent years. The greater South County area is home to several illustrious private clubs and is a nationally recognized leader in public golf offerings. St. Louis is one of the few cities that hosts three of the four major professional golf tours.
