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.

The short trails and walkways take you to the remains of a castle-like home destroyed by a fire nearly a hundred years ago, overviews of the Lake, and a spring.

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.
