Due to the Spring Gravel Mitigation and Trail Project, a portion of the parking area and the pit latrine near the Spring Trail trailhead are closed. Also closed are Island Trail, Connector 2, and the lower portion of Spring Trail. Visitors can still see Ha Ha Tonka Spring from Castle Trail and from a small overlook on Spring Trail, but the trail no longer makes a complete loop.
Should you have any questions, please contact the park’s visitor center at 573-346-2986.
WHERE NATURE AND HISTORY COME TOGETHER
With its intriguing history and outstanding geologic features, Ha Ha Tonka State Park is one state park that should not be missed. The park is a geologic wonderland featuring sinkholes, caves, a huge natural bridge, sheer bluffs and Missouri’s 12th largest spring. The ruins of a turn-of-the-century stone castle overlook these wonders and offer impressive views of the Lake of the Ozarks and Ha Ha Tonka Spring.
A series of trails and boardwalks makes it easy for visitors to experience all the park has to offer, from its historic castle and geologic wonders to its woodlands and open rocky glades. Picnic sites beckon visitors for a relaxing lunch in a scenic setting unparalleled in the lake area. All these fascinating elements combine to create a park that can be explored and enjoyed time after time.
