Big Lake State Park (an oxbow lake) is west of Squaw Creek NWR.  It can
be reached from the east by a north or south end approach.

 From the east to the south end:  Take US 159 from I-29 (this is the exit
at the truck stop and is the route to/through Squaw Creek NWR).
Continue past Squaw Creek to MO 111 on the east side of Big Lake.  MO
111 goes north from US 159.

 From the east to the north end:  Take MO 118 off I-29 (Mound City exit)
going west to MO 111, then south on MO 111.
