Amidon Memorial Conservation Area is a 1,630-acre area located on the upper reaches of the Castor River in Bollinger and Madison counties. The forest's timber species range from mixed hardwoods to shortleaf pine to cedar glades. A granite shut-ins on the Castor River adds an interesting geologic feature. During your visit, you may see various forest improvement practices designed to improve wildlife habitat and maintain watershed quality. Any physical disturbance is only temporary and normal aesthetic appearance will return soon. MDC has created watering ponds and planted food plots and agricultural crops within the forest to provide additional food sources for wildlife.

Perhaps, rather than extending the parking area and improving the road, we should consider shutting the place down for the summer, somehow. Only a few years ago it was one of Missouri's hidden gems. Now it is littered and defaced. If you love it, leave it in its natural state for others to enjoy.
