Imposing architecture and breathtaking scenery combine to make Ha Ha Tonka State Park one of Missouri’s most treasured spots. Located on the Lake of the Ozarks, the park features the stone ruins of a turn-of-the-20th-century castle built by a prominent Kansas City businessman high atop a bluff. More than 15 miles of trails traverse the park, leading visitors to sinkholes, natural bridges, caves and down to the lake.

We have hiked at Hahatonka twice and we love it. Trails are well marked with colored markers on the trees. For someone who is directionally challenged, this is a dream! You will see streams, a spring, small caves etc. Pick from a variety of distances,...More

good hiking, handicap parking and facilities. Steps to the lake are well constructed and long but not too steep with places to rest.

I have been visiting Ha Ha Tonka since the '60s and it is always great to get back. Usually come by boat and anchor in the cove, swimming and relaxing. This time we docked the boat and hiked all the way to the castle ruins...More

All these years in Missouri and my first time here. So beautiful. Don't know what took me so long. Don't make that mistake. This park is a historical must see!

Love this park, one of my favorites. It's sad they closed off all of the castle. It used to be a very pretty view but now is blocked by fence.

Ha Ha Tonka is a great place to hike and the view is fantastic. To see the castle and to have kids (and adults) to use their imagination to capture the feeling of the family living there is so exciting.

No, it is free to enter the park, and free parking for your car. I'm not sure if there is a "camping side" to the park, and if so, if there is a fee to stay overnight. I don't think that there is a camping facility. I... More
