Lincoln, located in Benton County in west-central Missouri, could easily be described as "The Front Door to Missouri’s Great Lakes: Lake of the Ozarks and Truman Lake". Truman Dam, located at Warsaw, 10 miles south of Lincoln, separates these two great bodies of water. Fishing, boating, swimming, water-skiing, sailing and camping are enjoyed by young and old alike on both of these premier lakes. Bass, crappie, bluegill and walleye are just a few of the fish to be pulled from these waters.
Hunting is also extremely popular in our area due to the timbered, rolling hills making up a large part of the area surrounding Lincoln. White-tailed deer, wild turkey, duck, quail and small game abound in the area. Additionally, since Truman Lake is a U.S. Army Corps of Engineers managed lake, approximately 300,000 acres of public lands surrounding the lake creating great habitat for all kinds of wildlife.
Lincoln is located on busy U.S. Highway 65, just south of I-70 and Sedalia, Missouri (home of the State Fair each August) and within a couple of hours drive to prominent cities such as Branson, Columbia, Kansas City or Springfield.
Lincoln is the smallest community in the state to have its own "grass strip" airport. Plus, a new airport 3 miles south of Lincoln will accommodate larger aircraft. 3,500' concrete landing strip, runway lighting, fuel service and a terminal building.
Lincoln has an updated central sewer system large enough to handle the expected growth for the next 20 years. Homes are available for the young family and the retired folks. We have day care facilities for the young ones and "Meals on Wheels" for the elderly.
Lincoln has two baseball diamonds in our large park grounds that are busy day and night during the summer season. We have truck & tractor pulls, rodeos and parades!
