Overview

Overview

The scenic John C. "Jack" Briscoe Group area, previously named the M.W. Boudreaux Group Area, is an ideal place for families and groups to explore and enjoy Mark Twain Lake.

More than 2.5 million visitors travel to the Mark Twain lake region to enjoy the overall magnetism of the area, thanks in part to the author's beloved classics, "The Adventures of Tom Sawyer" and sequel, "Adventures of Huckleberry Finn."

Natural Features:

Mark Twain lake is large reservoir fed by the waters of the Salt River in northern Missouri. A variety of recreation areas line the lake, in addition to Mark Twain State Park on the western edge of the lake.

Recreation:

Fishing, boating and hunting are very popular at John C. Briscoe. Deer and turkey are common wildlife, and bass is the most popular catch in the lake.

Facilities:

The John C. "Jack" Briscoe Group Use Area includes six group campsites with picnic shelters, showers and a central playground. Most sites hold a maximum of 24 to 36 people and offer paved parking for RVs and a shaded open field for tent campers. Very large groups can stay at group site 1, which accommodates up to 125 guests. All sites have electric hookups.

Nearby Attractions:

Beside the lake is the village of Florida, where Mark Twain was born. Twenty-five miles east is the town of Hannibal, where visitors can tour the author's boyhood home.
