Tea Lakes is a 216 acre multi use wildlife preserve and conservation area. The original tract of land was acquired in 1946 and has since been expanded to its current state. There are seven lakes and ponds on the area, the largest of which covers 28 acres. Five of these lakes and ponds are stocked with fish such as crappie, catfish, bass and bluegill. Tea Lakes offers excellent fishing opportunities throughout the year that can challenge anyone from the occasional weekend fisherman to the fishing enthusiast.
Some of the recreational activities that Tea Lakes offers are: fishing, camping, hiking, birding, relaxing, family picnics, or visit the new Missouri Native/Plants of Merit Garden and enjoy the scenery from one of the two benches located at each side of the garden. A great place to read a book or just enjoy the view.
There are 20 primitive campsites on the area which can accommodate anyone from tent campers to campers with self contained units. A seasonal shower house (Weather permitting April to October) is also available near the campsites. Whether you choose to "rough it" or camp with some of the comforts of home, all the campsites have a beautiful view of the lake.
Traditionally the area is only open to members. However if you are
interested in visiting the area and camping before committing to a membership,
visit the trial camping
page for rules and pricing.
*Pricing will vary for the trial camping versus the membership prices. If you choose to become a member during or shortly after the trial camping period there will be a discount on your general membership fee.
