Picnic tables dot the grounds and a shelter is there for gatherings of all kinds.

There are exhibits, ever changing displays and photographs in both the Visitors Center and Big Brutus to enhance the colorful history and heritage of this region and this bucket wielding machine and don't miss a self-guided tour.

There have been weddings at Big Brutus as well as receptions, private parties, group tours, school field trips, picnics and family reunions.

Christmas time at Big Brutus is a spectacular sight with lights that can be seen for miles.

Opportunites for fishing, hunting, horseback riding and other wildlife activities like photography abound in this scenic gateway to Branson in the Northwest Ozarks. Excellent fishing for bass and other game fish in the well stocked strip pits. And don't forget hunting for quail, turkey, small game and deer. The Mined Land Wildlife Areas (15,000 acres) offer grasslands, woodlots and waterways that will stir the senses and bring a tingling rush with each splash of water or flurry and flutter in the shadows and nodding grasses.
