Wheatland Park sits along the sparkling shores of Pomme de Terre Lake, known as the "gem of the Ozarks," for its deep, clear waters.
The phrase "Pomme de Terre" is French for potato or "apple of the earth." Most likely, the river was named by early French trappers and fur traders, who discovered plants resembling potatoes on the riverbanks.
Pomme de Terre Lake is popular among water skiers and anglers. A number of coves on the lake provide seclusion for ideal fishing conditions, regardless of power boating on other areas of the lake.
Largemouth bass, crappie and white bass are common catches, but it is the stocked muskie fishing that is particularly popular as muskie are rare to the region.
Wheatland Park has 41 campsites with electric and water hookups and 26 sites with electric hookups only. The accessible group picnic shelter fits up to 75 guests and has electricity.
Additional amenities include two shower houses, a boat ramp, courtesy dock, playground and a swim beach.
Pomme de Terre Lake is located in the rugged, tree-topped hills of the west-central Missouri Ozarks. The lake is long and winding with 7,790 surface acres and 113 miles of shoreline.
An excellent golf course and one of the country's best dirt race tracks are near Wheatland Park.

Spending labor day weekend for the 1st time here and I'd say the shower floors really need to be redone before someone gets hurt. Also wish they would clean the bathroom and showers everyday. We have crappy neighbors right now playing loud music coming into our campsite and being disrespectful. Told the park ranger but not sure if he said anything to them. Would I come back? Probably but definitely not on a holiday weekend. Over all it is a pretty little campground
