Nestled in the southeast region of Missouri, Lake Wappapello State Park offers a variety of recreation opportunities ranging from an exciting day on Lake Wappapello to a quiet stroll through the Ozark forest.

Lake Wappapello is popular with fishermen who cast their lines in hopes of reducing the excellent population of white bass, crappie and bluegill, as well as largemouth bass and catfish. Water enthusiasts will also enjoy swimming, boating and water skiing. The park features a swimming beach and paved boat ramps.
On-shore recreation options include miles of hiking, backpacking, equestrian and all-terrain bicycle trails. Visitors can enjoy lunch in two picnic areas, which include picnic sites, shelters and playground equipment.
Two campgrounds -- one perched on the ridge and one nestled near the lake -- offer basic and electric hookup campsites, hot showers, modern restrooms and laundry facilities. Eight modern cabins with kitchens, perfect for families, can be reserved by contacting the park office.
Lake Wappapello State Park provides a pleasant atmosphere for a myriad of park visitors whether they are looking to fish, boat, camp or just enjoy an afternoon barbecue and an evening sunset.

Trails

All trails in Lake Wappapello State Park open for public use are identified with entrance signs and marked at intersections with colored directional arrows. Occasional colored markers are used to identify the trail where the route is not clear. Trail users are advised to watch closely for trail markers, especially where trails intersect old roads.
Allison Cemetery Trail - 3.5 miles
This trail, which is open to hiking use only, provides an easy walk on the ridge to Allison Cemetery and then meanders along the lake’s edge to complete a 3.5-mile loop. There are two trailheads, one in the day-use area near the picnic shelter and the other on the north side of the road leading to the cabins. Cabin guests may access the trail at the end of the cabin road. The trail is signed in a clockwise direction with green arrows. Shorter hikes are possible by using the connector trails that are identified with white arrows.
Lake View Trail - ½-mile
This short trail begins in the day-use area and provides excellent views of the lake. It is signed with blue arrows in a clockwise direction and is designated for hiking use only.
Asher Creek Trail - 2 miles
This hiking trail begins on the west side of the campground and traverses the hillside up Asher Creek Valley. This arm of the lake has been designated as a waterfowl refuge, making Asher Creek Trail an excellent area for viewing wildlife. The trail follows higher ground on its return to the campground and passes through several stands of mature timber. The trail is approximately two miles long with two connector trails that provide opportunities for shorter hikes. The perimeter trail is signed in a clockwise direction with red arrows and the connectors with white arrows.
Lake Wappapello Trail - 15 miles
Lake Wappapello Trail is designated for hiking, backpacking, all-terrain bicycle and equestrian use. The trail traverses approximately 15 miles of varied and rugged Ozark terrain and may be accessed from Highway 172 near the west boundary of the park. Trailhead parking for equestrians is limited at this time. The route is signed in a counterclockwise direction with yellow arrows.
