Missouri Triangle is an unincorporated community in Kern County, California.[1] It is located 10 miles (16 km) north of McKittrick,[2] at an elevation of 561 feet (171 m).[1]

Defined by the triple junction of California State Route 33, Lost Hills Road, and 7th Standard Road, it entirely within the South Belridge Oil Field. Within the triangle formed by the inexact junction of the three major roads, there is a mini-mart and a water tower, with the place name painted on the water tower.
