The Pinnacles Youth Park is located about 12 miles north of Columbia, MO off Hwy. 63. It has 70 acres of natural, open space for public day use. Youth groups (Scouts, church groups, 4-H, etc) can camp overnight. The park was deeded to the youth of Boone County in 1965 and has been maintained for over 50 years by the Boone County Pinnacles Youth Foundation using only donations and volunteer labor. Though it is open to the public and has been enjoyed by generations, it is a private park and receives no government funds.
