When You Constantly Push Your Limits You Will Never Reach Them

This Hidden Beach In Missouri You Will Want To Visit Over And Over Again

It’s not often you can find a swimming hole this exotic, right smack dab in the middle of the Midwest.  Perhaps that is why, The Fugitive Beach is such a popular destination for both locals and those all over the region.  Once an abandoned rock quarry, The Fugitive Beach now serves as a tropical paradise, surrounded by towering limestone bluffs.

The Fugitive Beach is a family owned business, spread out on more then 20 beautiful acres.  The beach itself is over 300 feet in length of soft sand, just perfect for laying out in the summer sun.

Other then the beautiful views of the azure blue water, the main attraction is the 65 foot cliff side, water slide!  There is also cliff jumping, at 10, 15, and 20 foot heights as well a 60 foot slip and slide that is fun for kids and adults.

To add even more enjoyment to your visit, you can rent one of the cabanas overlooking the lake.  Each Cabana comes with seating for 5-6 people and a charcoal grill.  This is a great way to enjoy the beach in a more private setting.

Whether your looking for a fun summer activity for the family, a little adventure, or just a place to relax on a warm summer day, The Fugitive Beach has just what you need.

Don’t Miss:  The floating Rave Sport water obstacle!  It has a rock climbing wall, a 14 foot diving platform, and 3 water-slides!

Best Time:  The park is open from Memorial Day to Labor Day, with June and July being the most popular times to visit!

Pit Stop: Visit the Beach Bar and Grill, to refuel after a day in the water.  The grill serves pizza, burgers, nachos, pulled pork sandwiches, and hot dogs! There is also beer daiquiris, soda, and water for sale. The concession stands also offer a wide variety of snacks.

Extended Play:  Stay for the weekend!  Get a campsite at Maramec Spring Park, located apox 30 minutes from The Fugitive Beach.  The campground has 58 campsites available adjacent to the Meramec River.

Travel Smart:  The beach does get busy on weekends and holidays.  I suggest planning a visit during the week to avoid the crowds.  Remember to pack a swimsuit, sunscreen, a beach towel, and plenty of drinking water to stay hydrated.

Logistics:  The Fugitive Beach is located at 16875 County Road 5285, Rolla, MO 65401.
