Big Sugar Creek derived its name from the numerous groves of sugar maples which grew along its banks. Just up stream and east of Pineville is Cyclone, Missouri. A popular float is from the low water bridge at Cyclone to Craig O'Lea. The road to Cyclone meanders up the Big Sugar Creek Valley. A post office was established December, 1883 and Cyclone was named from the great cyclone of April 18, 1880, that passed through this part of the state.
During the warmer months the creek is a popular place for picnics, sunbathing, camping and canoeing. Elk River along with its tributaries, provides some of the clearest water and best canoeing in the state. The skill level is rated easy to moderate. The Elk is about as easy as they come, while Big Sugar, Little Sugar and Indian Creeks are narrower, swifter and more challenging. Bring your own canoe/kayak or rent from several canoe outfitters in the area. If you have ever wanted to try stream snorkeling, this is the place to do it!
