Picnic sites that are shaded by trees are scattered throughout and the family-oriented campground includes modern restrooms and hot showers.

My girlfriend and I have camped at Wallace twice now and personally it's my favorite of the state parks to camp near the KC area. Plenty of trails, not too busy, and staff are friendly.

Very calm although close to Cameron. Nature at its best. One of Missouri's state parks. When we were there, the park was not crowded.

I agree with John. That said, I feel that Wallace is a better camping experience over all. Watkins has a beautiful history, but the campsites at Wallace are for the most part, more private and a better environment.
