“Nice clean park. Great campsites”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

This park, just south of Cameron, was a quiet retreat the day we visited. There was a lovely small lake, trails and neat, clean campsites, many with privacy.

“Put on your walking shoes-watch out for those three leaves”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2013

Take the grandkids or just wife and I every so often to walk around the little lake. Nice trail. If you want more adventure it has several other much longer trails. Swimming during the summer. Lot of people also fish (but I have never seen any one with fish). Stay on the path as there is a lot of poison ivy growing in the woods. Nice relaxing place. Also has small playgroun and nice picnic area for groups. Have been to a number of groups having activities there. Camping site also available.

“Peace and Quiet!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2012

Beautiful park with plenty of space between you and the next door camper. Quiet and peaceful with easy trails. We saw a doe with two little ones on our hike. Nice walking trail around the lake/pond too. Shower houses are kept super clean. Lots of awesome non elecric sites back in the woods. There was a presentation at the ampitheater we didn't make it to. We had a great stay here!

“Great place for family fun!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2012

We had a family reunion at Wallace State Park. We reserved a pavilion near the lake. It was perfect! There were restrooms nearby, a large grill near the pavilion, a playground for kids nearby and then, of course, the lake. The lake has a sand bar area that acts as a mini-beach and then walking trails all around the perimeter. The kids stayed busy from 11 am until we left at 6 pm and they didn't want to leave then! This is a great place for families with lots of outdoor activity options. There were others there enjoying the lake and at distant pavilions, but we weren't cramped and it felt as though we nearly had the place to ourselves. The bathrooms are essentially permanent port-a-potties - chemical toilets rather than actual plumbing and there were no sinks in the bathroom, but there was a drinking fountain with a water spigot near the pavilion. Hand sanitizer would be a good thing to pack. We paid only $40 for the use of a large pavilion. Fun times!
