This is a nice park, there is fishing available. It also has great covered eating areas and camping spots for trailers. If you are a real outdoors person you will love it

This is a great little park to camp for a weekend. The hiking trails are all very well marked and maintained. However, be aware of poison ivy right along most of the trails. They can also be pretty muddy after a rain. We camped in...More

Wallace is a great place to spend an afternoon fishing, picnicking, hiking, or a weekend camping. This park is one of Missouri's smaller parks but it is still very pretty. We walked the walking trail which was very scenic and peaceful. We haven't been camping...More

If you love trees, this is the best campground around. Most campsites have great screening for privacy between sites. The camp hosts were very accommodating, and the shower house was really clean. We'll definitely be back!

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.
