Cooper’s Landing is a gem down by the river

Along the Missouri River, a gem is hidden, past the miles of gravel roads and along the fast moving river. This gem is Mike Cooper’s, Cooper’s Landing.

Cooper’s Landing is well known by it’s weekly visitors, but even most Columbia natives are not aware of what Cooper’s Landing has to offer. From daily live musical entertainment, to being one of the only places to fill up with gas on this part of the river, to a camping ground, there are many reasons to swing by Cooper’s Landing.

Many of the patrons who visit Cooper’s Landing are not new to this spot. Some were here when the landing was completely different, and some found out while riding their bike along the Katy Trail. However, every patron describes Cooper’s Landing as an escape from reality, and a place of relaxation.
