Overview
More
The clear water of Wakonda State Park's six lakes attract thousands of migratory waterfowl each year, making the park a bird lover’s paradise. The lakes also offer anglers a chance to catch largemouth bass, bluegill, crappie and catfish. Two of the lakes have boat ramps, making it even easier to get into the water. A swimming beach provides a great place to cool off, and campsites make the park a perfect place to stay for awhile.

I spent the last 12 months visiting all of the state parks in Missouri. Wakonda was my final park on my list. I loved it. This is a natural sand dune location which is rare in Missouri. Several lakes were carved out during mining operations,...More

We visited the park to swim at the beach and hike. The beach was nice and clean with lots of sand that was just right for making sand castles! The water is not clear but it was clean...as clean as lake water can be anyway!...More
