      This area is mainly forest with woodlands, glades, and old fields. Facilities/features: primitive camping by Special Use Permit only, picnic areas, firearms range, intermittent stream (Camp Creek), and a permanent stream (Woods Fork).

      This area is named in honor of Dr. Urban and Erma Marie Busiek. The original 740 acres was purchased from their son, Dr. Paul Busiek, in 1981 and approximately one-quarter of the purchase price was donated to the Missouri Department of Conservation. All other land was purchased by the Department over the next several years.

      The area provides multiple recreation use opportunities. A well marked trail system provides approximately 18 miles of trails for use by hikers, bicyclists, and horseback riders. Camping is permitted ONLY with a permit - available through the Springfield Regional office. There is also an unstaffed firearms shooting range available. The range is closed on Monday's for maintenance.
      Primary Trail Type: Cross-Country
