About Wakonda State Park
Campgrounds, some picnic areas and Shelter 1 have reopened as of Aug. 1. All other areas of the park, along with the boat and kayak rentals, remain closed at this time. Click here to read the full advisory.
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.
