Wakonda SP Review

Wakonda State Park is located in NE MO next to U.S. Hwy 61 offering easy off, easy on access to the park. The park has two campgrounds, Boulder Lake campground and Wakonda Lake campground and all sites have a fire ring and picnic table. The campsites on Boulder Lake are heavily treed, close together, electric only, and many require some leveling front to back. The Wakonda Lake campground has been upgraded to 9 full hookup campsites offering 50 amp service. The campsites are spacious and all 9 sites back up to the lake and have easy access to the lake. Both campgrounds have a clean shower house and a playground for children.

The state park has 6 fishing lakes, hiking trails, a swimming beach, boat rentals, and picnic areas. All areas of the park are clean and well maintained.

Great campsite spacing. This is the space between 103 and 104. The showerhouse and playground were on the other side of the road from our site.

Nice report and pix. Looks like a good place to stop for a few days.

We spent two nights at the state park. The campground host gave us a heads up not to speed, park on the grass, go the wrong way on the loop road, etc. because one of the park rangers was out of control issuing tickets. I took his advice.

Here's a picture some of the electric only pull through sites in the other campground.

Nice looking camp ground, and you are lucky enough to be still able to use it! Out here things are closed up for the winter.

We usually get the month of October for camping before we have to winterize. We're leaving Sunday morning for the Smoky Mountain Jamboree and when we return we have no choice but to winterize. We are leaving on Nov 2nd for a 14 day Panama Canal cruise to celebrate our 40th anniversary.
