Take this for 5.2 miles to SR 77. Turn right or south on SR 77 and go down it for 17 miles to CR502. Turn right or west on CR502 and go down it 1.9 miles to where it meets CR 512. The park will be on your left. 314-649-3149; phone to make sure the park will be open. This location is sacred to the Indians, with stories of spirits here.
Towosahgy State Park was very spooky to say the least. There are very few houses in the area and you seem to drive for ever in total darkness.
The park itself has no lights whatsoever anywhere near it. One picture we took showed a small red ball and a tiny yellow streak, both to the left of myself in the picture. And this location is closer to East Prairie and Charleston than Sikeston.
We had what we believed were wild dogs chase us out one night. Problem was there was nothing there! You could see the weeds parting as if something was there & hear the snarling & growling, but nothing! 2 of our group were dared to walk out to the mound, when they got there one of them lit his Zippo to verify they were indeed on top of the mound. When he did is when we heard the howl & all hell broke loose! We all ran thinking wolves but Missouri hasn't had wolves in yrs! You could hear the clawed paws on the gravel as we were running for our vehicles, but nothing there. We made it to the cars started leaving in a very expedient manner, that's when all 3 cars stalled, the head lights & interior lights started flickering, electronic door locks started locking & unlocking on their own. I wanna say it was 96 or 97, I was still in the Marines & was on leave cause we had just came back from either Lybia or Bosnia. I don't get scared easily. That night there was something there I couldn't see so couldn't fight! I have NOT been back since! I don't believe in ghosts, I do however believe in demons! I've seen things since I was 11 yo & had a near death experience. Something isn't right there, it's got a dark feeling, even at high noon!
