Wallace State Park fits the bill for all of the above, offering a picturesque bit of woodlands and waters. The six-acre Lake Allaman provides a prime spot for fishing, boating, and paddling. Several trails wind through the surrounding hills and along Deer Creek, which offers a pretty place to play where pioneers once crossed the waters over 150 years ago. Shaded, well-spaced campsites offer respite from the busy world.

When to go

Wallace State Park springs to life in May, as the leaves begin to fill the trees and wildflowers bloom. It鈥檚 a great time for hiking the trails. As summer peaks, temperatures can sometimes top 90 degrees, and high humidity is possible. Fall weather is usually in full swing by mid-October, and the forests fill with color, creating pleasant camping conditions. Winter in Northern Missouri can bring freezing temperatures and frequent snows.聽

Know before you go

  • The campground water spigots are turned off November 1 through April 14, with potable water available at a frost-free spigot at the dump station.
  • Park gates lock at 9 p.m. during the on-season and at dusk during the off-season. Campers must arrive before the gates lock to enter the park.
  • Nature programs are offered between Memorial Day and Labor Day.
  • Wallace State Park is a 45-minute drive to downtown Kansas City, which bursts with entertainment options, including museums, restaurants, and nightspots.
