The mission of the Sparta Area Chamber of Commerce is to enhance the quality of life and local economy through support of business, economic development, and advocacy.
Here is what WikiPedia says about us:
"Sparta is in north central Ozark County on the south edge of the Springfield Plateau. The community lies at the intersection of Missouri Route 14 and Missouri Route 125 approximately six miles east of Ozark. To the south and southeast the edge of the plateau is dissected by the headwaters of Bull and Swan creeks."
We like to think of Sparta as the Gateway to the Mark Twain Forest! A large forest sanctuary filled with beautiful roads, scenic hills and an abundance of wildlife. Its a popular getaway location for campers, hikers, motorcycle and ATV enthusiasts and anyone interested in Ozarks outdoor activities.
Within this mecca of excellent natural escape is some popular destinations like:
Chadwick Off Road Trails
Bull Shoals Lake and Ferry
Soggy Bottom Motocross Park
Southern Missouri Off Road Ranch
Bar K Wrangler Campsite
Busiek State Park
Hercules Glades Wilderness
Glade Top Trail Scenic Byway
And Epic Hunting, fishing and camping opportunities.
Sparta is the western entrance point to many of these fine destinations. Its a re-supply point for your final destination into the Mark Twain wilderness and provides resources for your outdoor needs. With friendly and helpful residence, come to Sparta and plan to depart for adventure!
