Poplar Bluff is in southeastern Missouri, 90 miles southwest of Cape Girardeau and 135 miles north of Memphis, Tennessee.
All of Poplar Bluff's hotels are located on or near North Westwood Boulevard.
Meanwhile, the Missouri Department of Natural Resources snapped up the land at auction and added 100 acres.
This weekend, former Camp Zoe will be opened as Echo Bluff State Park.
