Owner description: 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.

Lots of history here, great views of the lake. Good place to walk and take it all in.

Picturesque sights of the lake as well as The Castle make this a "must see" if you are visiting near the Ozarks. Great hiking trails (some are quite strenuous) but the views are incredible. If you love beautiful scenery, you will love Ha Ha Tonka State Park and come back again and again.

Our favorite place to hike as a family. Beautiful park, lots to see, interesting hiking trails. Can be very challenging.

Had the pleasure to hike at Ha Ha Tonka State Park New Year's Eve, 2011 (December 31, 2011), January 4 & January 5, 2012 due to the spring-like weather the Midwest is experiencing this time of year. There is a wide variety of hikes and trails for all levels of experience. I would highly recommend Ha Ha Tonka State Park for a peaceful retreat. The park does close at dusk and, at present time, the caves are closed.

It is beautiful for walking, but that's all there really is to do there.
I have been a few time and would go back if I were in the mood.
