Mission 

"Benton County Tourism & Recreation Corporation will direct, manage and conduct activities to increase tourism and tourism spending for our county. We will do so by promoting, developing and improving our vast variety of tourist related amenities."

Overview

BCTR will also direct the efforts of Osage Lakes Greenway operation which was established to help create, promote and mange our growing county-wide trail system. 

BCTR is a public/private partnership 501c3 non-profit organization. The County has agreed to authorize, via resolution, this group as organization responsible for dispersing Tourism Bed Tax proceeds.

We were created to enhance the economic vitality and quality of life found in Benton County by capitalizing on the immense tourism opportunities found in and around the Warsaw, Lincoln and Cole Camp area.

BCTR focuses on three primary areas:

  • Promotion of tourism
  • Development, promotion and planning for the county wide trail system
  • Creation, planning and implementation of tourism oriented events
