Half an hour northeast of St. Louis across the Mississippi River, this historic site memorializes Camp Dubois, where pioneers Meriwether Lewis and William Clark camped during the winter of 1803 to 1804. Situated on the banks of Mississippi River, the site hosted the Corps of Discovery as they prepared for their expedition to the far reaches of the American West. The site has an interpretive center with six galleries, a theater and a gift shop. Don't miss the full-scale replica of Lewis and Clark's Missouri River keelboat and a reconstruction of the Corps' campgrounds near the visitor center.
Thinks to do:
Bike and caching trails. We will be at the center point of "The MCT Confluence Trail " this trail starts at Mckinley brigde and ends in Alton for you die hards. Or a nice leisurely walk down to the river front. Who knows what you might find along the way.
Closest to the Pin game
maybe even The Cat's "cache in a cache in a cache" game
Eat drink and be merry.
