Visitor Tips and News About Giant Morel Mushroom
We drove by earlier this week, and while the morel mushroom can still be seen from the highway, it is becoming quickly overgrown by foliage. I can only guess that since the sign with the web address has been removed that the business is defunct and the giant mushroom is no longer being maintained.[Kara Foster, 08/24/2015]
You need to go past Hwy 71 north past Nevada, MO. Turn East on right on Hwy M and take diary right. Follow around to the back of the mushroom.[Rachel Lynn Foley, 10/04/2010]
Giant Morel Mushroom
Just a few miles north of Nevada MO on Hwy 71 is a giant Morel Mushroom! I guess they grow and sell morel mushrooms there. I live pretty close by.[Tom Maness, 03/21/2009]
The mushroom is 30 ft. tall. Can't say we care for that honking big web URL sign. That's a bad precedent for giant food (or any) statues. Makes this mushroom, if not poisonous, much less delectable as a photo op! Note: It lights up at night -- and so does the web sign. June 2014: The web address sign has been removed!
