A Warm Welcome
Awaits You...

Located in the heart of the Ozarks in south central Missouri, the city of Salem and surrounding Dent County offer abundant natural resources, warm hospitality, and a proud Ozark heritage. Montauk State Park is a popular destination for trophy trout fishing, beautiful camping facilities, and historic sites.
The Salem area is well known for its many outdoor recreational activities, including deer and turkey hunting, horseback riding, fishing, camping, and is a favorite place to stay for visitors to the Ozark National Scenic Riverways. Many of our visitors were so attracted by the natural scenery, beautiful weather, and small town living, they’ve decided to call Salem home. We invite you to discover Salem and Dent County for yourself... where friendly folks are always welcome.
