Visit the town that isn’t there  

I was camping out a few years ago in Southeast Missouri and decided to stop at the Greenville Recreation Area on Highway 67.

It is located on the northern end of Lake Wappapello on the St. Francis River.

The area has a campground, picnic sites, a playground, basketball courts, volleyball courts, horseshoe pits, a day use shelter, and a boat ramp with a courtesy dock.  

The campground has showers and campsites with full hookups consisting of electric, water, and sewer.

All That Remains of an Old Greenville Residence.

The Greenville Recreation Area is managed by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. I had never been there before and was impressed with the facilities but what I was surprised to find out was that the entire area was once a small town that is now completely gone.
