Johnson Shut Ins Campground Moved to Higher Ground Following 2005 Disaster

The rebuilt Johnson Shut Ins Campground has opened following the 2005 Taum Sauk Reservoir disaster as part of Ameren’s $180 million settlement with Missouri. The campground which was on the Black River and thus washed away is now higher up on Groggins Mountain. The hike from Johnson Shut Ins to the Taum Sauk summit incidentally is the prettiest (if longest) way to do it. St Post Dispatch Article Details of Settlement
