Burnt Mill Cave Conservation Area sits 17 miles west of Camdenton and 3.2 miles southeast of Climax Springs. The area consists of 340 acres of oak-hickory woodlands and glades. Approximately 240 acres north of the river have been designated as the Little Niangua River Natural Area. This natural area contains more than 50 acres of dolomite glade habitat and includes a stretch of the Little Niangua River and Kolb Hollow Branch that support a diverse array of fish species within the geographic range of the federally threatened, Missouri endemic Niangua Darter, and another Missouri endemic, the Saddled Darter. The area offers public opportunities for bird watching, fishing, hiking, hunting, and wildlife viewing.
