Elephant Rocks State park is Missouri’s finest bouldering destination. The park is home to massive granite boulders that have tested climbers for generations. Legendary climbers, like John Gill, established many of the classic problems, while new problems are put up each year. Elephant Rocks State Park is managed by the Missouri Department of Natural Resources – State Parks Division. BETA Fund and MO State Parks entered into a cooperative agreement in December, 2018 to improve rock climbing access in Missouri State Parks where climbing is available. Funds raised at the E-Rocks Bloc Party will help fund projects at Elephant Rocks and many other Missouri State Parks.
