Bill Emerson Memorial Visitor Center

Lake Wappapello is a reservoir on the St. Francis River, formed by Wappapello Dam. Created in 1941, this 44,000-acre project is located 120 miles south of St. Louis, Missouri. Its primary purpose is flood control though it has evolved into a recreational area with ample opportunities to boat, fish, swim or camp. The fish population of the lake include white and largemouth bass, crappie, and bluegill. The reservoir lies mostly in Wayne County, but also reaches into northern Butler County. The Bill Emerson Visitor Center overlooks the dam, and offers educational tours for children and adults.
