Construction of the new Missouri State Park is currently in progress on the grounds of the former Camp Zoe, which is located next to Current River State Park just off Highway 19 in Shannon County, Missouri. Robinson Construction Company of Perryville, Missouri was awarded the $29.2 million contract for construction of the new state park by the State of Missouri in May 2015. Work began on the project in June 2015 and is expected to last approximately one year.

Robinson’s scope of work for this project includes construction of a new bluff top event shelter, 62 concrete paved camper locations, 1 bath house, 9 multi-bedroom cabins, a 20-room lodge with restaurant and general store, day use area with playground, amphitheater and 4 event pavilions, as well as a great deal of landscaping and hardscaping.

It is estimated that approximately 80 construction jobs will be created over the next 12 months as the work on the project progresses.

About Camp Zoe: According to a Missouri State Parks website, Camp Zoe operated as a summer camp for kids from 1929 to 1986. From 2004 to 2010, Camp Zoe was owned and operated by James Tebeau, bass player in The Schwag – a Grateful Dead Tribute Band, and used for hosting music festivals known as “Schwagstock.” In November 2010, the land was seized by the federal government after Tebeau pled guilty to having knowledge that drug dealing was taking place at the festivals. The property was then purchased by the State of Missouri from the federal government at an auction in 2013 for $640,000.
