Wakonda State Park

Park Information

While parks and historic sites are open for day-use, capacity will be monitored closely in order to prevent overcrowding. If nearing capacity, parking lots may close temporarily. Missouri State Parks has implemented a number of measures designed to maintain required social distancing and protect visitors, volunteers and staff. The latest information from Missouri State Parks on COVID-19 can be found here. A full list of temporary closures can be found here.

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.
