What to Do

The scenic, historic river town of Rocheport, Missouri offers things to do and scenery to enjoy throughout the year. From the falling leaves and snow covered trees in the fall and winter to the beautiful flowers and greenery during the spring and summer, each season’s beautiful scenery offers something unique to our guests.

  • Hike or bike the Katy Trail. Stretching nearly the entire width of Missouri, the Katy Trail is the longest “rails to trails” project in America.
  • Spend time on the Rocheport River Walk – it’s a great way to spend a relaxing evening after dinner at one of the fine dining establishments located here in Rocheport .
  • The conservation areas and overlooks offer great views and opportunities to enjoy the natural beauty of the area and maybe catch a glimpse of an eagle.  Diana Bend Conservation Area is known as a wetlands ‘bed and breakfast’ for migratory birds.
