Pulaski County USA is open for trout season. Come fish our white and red ribbon trout areas. You can also try your luck in an urban setting at our trout fishing area in downtown Waynesville. Come enjoy trout fishing at its very best in Pulaski County USA!
Whether it’s the beauty of a summer sunset over the Roubidoux Spring, the breathtaking fall foliage along Historic Route 66, or the charm of the downtown square, Waynesville has something to offer everyone. Even Santa doesn’t miss “Christmas On The Square” in December! Waynesville’s possibilities range from historic attractions to award-winning fishing, from underwater caves to beautiful parks, from modern-day excitement to echoes of the past.
The giant Frog Rock, W.H. Croaker, greets visitors as they arrive in downtown Waynesville. The huge painted rock is a Waynesville landmark that hints to visitors they’ve entered a city with a personality all its own.
Consider yourself a history buff? With a namesake like Revolutionary War hero “Mad Anthony” Wayne, Waynesville is as rich in history as its name suggests. The oldest city in Pulaski County, it has been a trading post for trappers and pioneers, a rest stop for stagecoaches traveling west, and an encampment for the infamous Trail of Tears. It has hosted battles and skirmishes in the Civil War and established its popularity with travelers and day-trippers alike with the development of Route 66. Waynesville’s history is immortalized in several downtown museums.
If modern-day fun holds more appeal, spend the day at beautiful Roubidoux Spring to experience the area’s best trout fishing at one of the few urban trout streams. The famous spring is also home to an underwater cave that draws certified cave divers from around the globe. In 1837, the spring was a site along the infamous Trail of Tears during the Cherokee removal.
Take an afternoon stroll on the walking trail that joins Waynesville and Laughlin Park for a refreshing tour along the Roubidoux River, or gather the family for a picnic in one of the pavilions to please any crowd.
