Chilton Creek offers visitors an array of natural wonders to explore.

On November 22, 2022 this property was transferred to the Missouri Department of Conservation (MDC).  Since the purchase of this property in 1991, TNC and MDC have been partners on the management of Chilton Creek. Both organizations are committed to continued collaboration on the property and working together to further research and stewardship in the Current River watershed and across the Ozark landscape.
