Posted: Oct. 11, 2017 10:10 am

MARK TWAIN LAKE, Mo. -- It's that time of year, when Indian Creek Campground at Mark Twain Lake is full of family fun and spooky decorations.

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and the Mark Twain Lake Chamber of Commerce announced the return of the annual Halloween walk on Oct. 20 and Oct. 21.

Event times are 6 to 9 p.m. Friday and 5 to 9 p.m. Saturday.

All are invited to come in costume and encouraged to bring flashlights; pets are not allowed in the event area.

Indian Creek Campground is situated south of Monroe City and may be found by taking U.S. 24 to Mo. HH. Directional signs will be displayed.

The chamber will be accepting a parking fee of $5 per vehicle each night to help cover expenses. Shuttles will be available Saturday only. Only registered campers who have paid a camping fee and display their correlating white vehicle hang tag issued by the Indian Creek Fee Booth upon campsite registration will be exempt from this charge. Having exact change upon approaching the event will help expedite wait time and reduce long lines at the entry.

For more information, contact the M.W. Boudreaux Memorial Visitor Center at 573-565-2112 or email marktwaininfo@usace.army.mil.

The M.W. Boudreaux Memorial Visitor Center at the south end of Cannon Dam will be closed Oct. 20-22 as staffers prepare for the Halloween event.
