According to legend, a mysterious creature known to locals as the Howler, roamed the dark remote forests of the Ozark Mountains. As the story goes, early settlers in the area would hear a high pitched howl in the late hours of the night. Sightings from that time described the creature as being the size of a bear that walked upright with a thick stocky body, orange fur, and prominent horns.

There are those today that say the Howler is still out there, awakening the wild nature in those who hear its howl...



Howler is a family-owned operation with Max Penny running the day-to-day operations as "Head Howler," supported by his parents, John and Jennifer Penny. In addition to the park, the family also owns two retail stores.
