Wallace State Park is a lovely, tranquil place, a really sweet discovery. There is a small lake with swimming. Two of the campgrounds have electric, mostly 30 amp, with 50amp available in two sites (by reservation); the basic sites seem more suitable for tents, but OK for smaller rigs. If you have never stayed here before & especially if you have a big rig, I would recommend calling the park before making a reservation online. Some of the sites are easy pull-thru & very level. Some are gravel, some paved. The back-ins tended to be very private & attractive (nestled in the trees), but also many were not level. One electric site had a pretty steep drop-off with a lot of overhanging trees that we would not have attempted. (Ok if you're small, but no way with a behemoth motorhome!) We camped at Wallace State Park in a Motorhome.

We loved this park! There are no full hook-ups, but two nice dump stations are located near the bathhouse. There are only a few hose bibs, so plan on coming with water. We were lucky in that our site was close enough to a hose bib to run our hose over to our rig to top off the tank. We were the only folks in Campground 4 for a day and a half - that was awesome. However, the paved pads and grass sites are spacious, so even when the park filled up on the weekend it was still very peaceful. Some of the sites have sheltered picnic tables with a convenient shelf above the table. There was one outhouse with two separate toilets. The inside walls of the woman's toilet were a real mess, but the dugout area is vented by fans and there was no odor. The room has a skylight and shuttered, screened windows that allow lots of light to enter - but take a flashlight at night! A full-service bath with flush toilets, sinks and showers is available near the entrance to the camping area of the park. The entrance road has a few twists and turns, but negotiating them at the posted speed limit in a 40' motorhome with a tow was not a problem. It appears that most all sites are located in grassy areas with large trees throughout. Even so, we were able to acquire satellite reception. There is no Wi-Fi. There are a number of trails and plenty of space for walking dogs. There is a small lake and day use area. We camped at Wallace State Park in a Motorhome.

The nicest state park campground I have ever stayed in. Beautiful, fairly level, spacious sites, some with tree cover, others in the open. Good electric, but no water at site, and no sewer, though a very nice dump station was available. Even had good wifi at site.

Modern, clean bath house. Everything was well kept, nice hiking trails and a swimming lake. Nice new playground. Camp hosts were very friendly.

Being that it was just a few miles off the interstate, I used this as an overnight stop, but wish I could have stayed for more. If in the area, I will return. We camped at Wallace State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Wonderful state park with 4 separate camping areas: 1area walk in, 3 for RV's and or tents, and 2 of those have electricity. Well maintained with multiple trails, fishing, day use area. Weekends are usually fully booked and weekdays busy. Sites vary between open, sunny, shaded, and private. Many pull throughs.
We would stay here again. We camped at Wallace State Park in a Motorhome.

We pulled in on a Saturday night without reservations as did another camper. It was just an overnight stay for us as we were heading west. The park was full but there were two no-shows. The camp hosts/staff called the two individuals and they released their site.

This is a very nice park with lots of space that seems to be a favorite spot for locals. We camped at Wallace State Park in a Motorhome.

Be careful when using this spot because it does drop off a few inches on the right and you might bottom out.

Camped with our MC and pop up camper. Fairly level, shaded site.
If you want electric loop 2 and 4 are your choices. No really bad sites in these loops. We camped at Wallace State Park in a Tent Trailer.

We were just looking for an overnight stop and tried this park. It's accessed via a narrow, twisty road, but is worth the effort. The camp host came out and directed us to a pull-through in campground 2 that had 30 amp electric only, but that was fine for the one night. Lots of trees so no satellite where we were. The other campgrounds (there are 4) might be better. The Verizon Wireless was excellent and we were even able to watch some Netflix. The roads and sites were all paved. We camped at Wallace State Park in a Motorhome.

We have stayed at this park 3 times. We had a pull thru site. There were only 4 other campers there. Very quiet. The park was still on winter camping, but they did have fresh water available up by the dumping area. We camped at Wallace State Park in a Motorhome.

Wallace State Park is a wonderful gem, just outside of Kansas City. It is a very well maintained state park, with great amenities throughout (fishing lake, wading beach, hiking trails). The park staff host several presentations daily during the on-season, on weekends. We camped at Wallace State Park in a Tent.

Areas 2 and 4 are electric (30 amp mostly – two 50 amp sites in Site 4) with mostly paved sites, even a good number of pull-throughs, and the rest gravel. Sites are well spaced, shady, some really tucked back into the woods. I stayed there 9 days and in both Area 2 (#59) and Area 4 (#83). Area 2 is next to the Wi-Fi and showers, and consequently the signal was excellent. Site 4 is 400+ yards away and Wi-Fi was nonexistent, although I think they are going to add a booster. I saw several deer and it is very quiet in the evening. There’s a good map on the web site, which shows the popularity of the individual sites, which is kind of cool. Since there is no water or sewer, I can’t give it a 10, but agree the two dump sites are very clean and accessible. I would definitely stay here again, if in the area. Convenient to Kansas City. We camped at Wallace State Park in a Motorhome.

30 amp electric only site with level pad. Water and dump station available. Some pull through sites available. Beautiful fall camping location. Natural setting with hiking trails and a lake. We didn't have time to explore on this visit. We camped at Wallace State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Great little park, very quite, great for a few days. Don't reserved on line like I did if you are going to arrive early in the week. It cost me and extra $8.50 to phone reserve. One of the parks host told me the park it is usually pretty empty during that time of the week. This is my second time camping at Wallace. Will be there in the future. We camped at Wallace State Park in a Motorhome.

If you can find a better run state park, I'd love to know about it. I give this one a 9 because it doesn't really have that much in the way of "attractions", but it's just about perfect in every other way. Really great shower house (with a nearby laundry facility--50 cents per load!), very well-maintained, spacious sites, easy access to the highway, very proficient camp hosts, just a great stay. This is our second visit as we are traveling through MO to see family in IL, and we'll be back! We camped at Wallace State Park in a Motorhome.
