Less than an hour from Kansas City, Wallace State Park is an island of serenity. Visitors can fish or swim in the park’s six-acre lake or hike one of four scenic trails with benches along the way for relaxing. Picnic sites that are shaded by trees are scattered throughout and the family-oriented campground includes modern restrooms, hot showers and hot water.

If you love trees, this is the best campground around. Most campsites have great screening for privacy between sites. The camp hosts were very accommodating, and the shower house was really clean. We'll definitely be back!

Several trails are available for a walking pleasure. Most can trails ( maybe 5) are blazed without distraction from other visitors.

I agree with John. That said, I feel that Wallace is a better camping experience over all. Watkins has a beautiful history, but the campsites at Wallace are for the most part, more private and a better environment.
