Kemp Lake provides disabled people the ability to experience nature and just have some fun. The 215-acre game preserve is about an hour west of St. Louis off Hwy 44 and features a 19-acre managed lake teaming with fish.
We believe there is truly nothing more healing than the beauty of God's nature. And we strive to share that beauty with people who are often excluded from these opportunities.

What We Offer
Participants hunt deer, turkey, quail, rabbit, and other upland birds with the aid of an expert hunter. As a managed game preserve, Kemp Lake has had many successful hunts.
Our "breakaway docks" offer a unique, accessible and easy to way to fish or explore the lake on our water safaris - a favorite with kids and adults alike. Simple in design & function the docks are carpeted, railed, can be combined and can utilize an optional shade canopy. A fishing guide handles the details and helps to make fishing about as easy as can be!
Walk or ride through the over 6 miles in trails and roads that wind through and around the preserve. Look for flowers. mushrooms, birds, animals or their tracks-- or just enjoy the cool breeze sweeping through the trees.
Relax with your group and experience the lake from our brand new pavilion! Maybe a shore lunch is in order! Maybe just watch the waves, other participants, wildlife or whatever else might catch your eye. There's nothing more restoring than nature.
