wonderful 5 day stay. nice spacious sites. 6 lakes with swimming and fishing. boat docks, and boat rentals and great hiking trails.
Had numerous interconnected hiking trails that follow the lakes in the area. They often have kayaks available and occasionally have paddle board classes there through the local YMCA. Campground has hook up and concrete spots, but lacks shade and feel of a campground. Limited space!
Boulder Lake is the larger of the two campgrounds here at Wakonda State Park. It is also crowded with RV and campers in the main part of the campground, with a small loop that is sort of tent only. The tent part is a loop with sites in the middle (37-50) having the best trees for hammocks and the sites on the outside of the loop having the most level places for pitching a tent. If you can get site 44, you have probably the best site in the campground as it sits at the end of the loop with no close neighbors, close to the lake, and backs to nice trees. None of the other sites are as private. This site is the furthest from the bathrooms and shower house, however. You can purchase ice and wood, and there are laundry facilities. All of this is located near the shower house. There are a couple of water spikots scattered around the campgrounds, and there is one hiking trail that heads out of the campground near the woodlot. Elsewhere in the park is a nice swimming beach with a place to shower off the sand, and some interesting cement tunnels/bunkers that kids might have fun exploring.
Fantastic place to visit
Wakonda state park, located about 30 miles north of Hannibal. The park has a several lakes to fish and boat with multiple trails ranging from 1 to 5 miles. The sites are a little tight but at the time of our visit the park was empty. The showerhouse is a little dated but adequate. The basic sites site right on the edge of a small lake and is a wonderful sight waking up to. My only complaint is the highway a little close and it can be loud.
