Alice Ahart Mansfield Conservation Area

Woodland landscape at Alice Ahart Mansfield Conservation Area, Camden County, Missouri

Eighty wooded acres of rugged Ozark Highland hills, managed as a public forest and woodland with a mostly oak/hickory cover. Selective thinning and preservation of cavity trees, or "snags," provide habitat for diverse wildlife species. The area offers wildlife viewing and seasonal hunting opportunities. A 0.75-mile hiking trail loops through the forest and back to the parking lot. Roy Mansfield, of Osage Beach, donated the property to MDC in 1973 to maintain a forest and wildlife management program on the land. The area is named for Roy's mother, Alice.
