“Cool off in the Lake!”
The clear water of Wakonda State Park's six lakes attract thousands of migratory waterfowl each year, making the park a bird lover’s paradise. The lakes also offer anglers a chance to catch largemouth bass, bluegill, crappie and catfish. Two of the lakes have boat ramps, making it even easier to get into the water. A swimming beach provides a great place to cool off, and campsites make the park a perfect place to stay for awhile. Wakonda State Park offers basic, electric and sewer/electric/water campsites. Basic and electric campsites are available in Boulder Lake Campground and sewer/electric/water campsites are in Wakonda Lake Campground. On-season (April 15 through Oct. 31) services include modern restrooms, a dump station, showers, water and laundry. During the on-season, fees of first-come, first-served campers are to be paid at the park office. Campers planning to carry in firewood must comply with current firewood advisories. Both campgrounds are open year-round. Reservations can be made for stays during the on-season. For weekend reservations, there is a required two-night minimum stay of Friday/Saturday.
I was really disappointed with Wakonda. It's a pretty enough park if you're looking for boating, I suppose... but I got there at noon and the boat rental place hadn't yet opened. Further, every trail I tried to hike started with the traditional "blazed in..." sign, but then no blazes were evident. The trail appeared to be a road, so not sure where the trail started from where the sign was located... all in all, it wasn't worth the trip for me.
