Imposing architecture and breathtaking scenery combine to make Ha Ha Tonka State Park one of Missouri’s most treasured spots. Located on the Lake of the Ozarks, the park features the stone ruins of a turn-of-the-20th-century castle built by a prominent Kansas City businessman high atop a bluff. More than 15 miles of trails traverse the park, leading visitors to sinkholes, natural bridges, caves and down to the lake.

This is a beautiful state park with many paths to hike both up and down hill. Some are grueling some are less work. The foliage is beautiful all times of the year. Good for hiking with any one that is able bodied

A beautiful piece of Missouri history, this is much more than a park. The remains of a beautiful castle, with its own carriage house, water tower, post office, springs, and island, offer a glimpse into the area's past. Numerous hiking trails throughout and beside the...More

Beautiful park! Has very nice trails, just make sure you have good hiking footwear. Also, has good access to fishing from the bank. Plenty of parking and it’s generally close to trail entrances. Has castle ruins and natural spring which we didn’t have time to...More

No, it is free to enter the park, and free parking for your car. I'm not sure if there is a "camping side" to the park, and if so, if there is a fee to stay overnight. I don't think that there is a camping facility. I... More
