Neosho is a beautiful city with several wonderful tourist attractions. The race itself is being run on what was formerly Camp Crowder, which was the inspiration for Camp Swampy of the Beetle Bailey comic strip and where Rob Petry met and married Laura on the Dick Van Dyke show. Neosho is also home to Neosho National Fish Hatchery, the oldest national fish hatchery west of the Mississippi river with a beautiful new visitor center. The George Washington Carver National Monument is only a few miles away in Diamond, Missouri. Several Civil War landmarks are nearby.
