Overview

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 park offers walking trails, a place to swim, a beautiful walk around a large spring, great picnic areas, and the ruins of a beautiful mansion. I highly recommend a visit there.

If you just want a place to get into nature and see some beautiful scenery, this is a great place to spend the day. Pack a picnic lunch, grab the kiddos and head to this great park. You won't be disappointed.
