Making reservations to recreate at Wappapello Lake has never been easier or more convenient.  Your favorite campground and day use area can be accessed by computer or your telephone by visiting, or calling 1-877-444-6777. Reservations may also be made in-person, at each campground fee booth, during operating hours. Campground Park Attendants are not allowed to make reservations over the phone.

Reservations in Wappapello Lake’s campgrounds may be made as much as 6 months in advance, or in as little advance as the same day of arrival. Wappapello Lake’s campgrounds all now have same-day reservations, which means that unreserved campsites may be reserved the same day of arrival. Reservations must be made prior to setting up a campsite.

Group picnic shelters are also available for reservation via or calling 1-877-444-6777. They may be reserved as much as 12 months in advance, and as little as 4 days prior to their use during the timeframe from mid-March to November.

Campground fee booth hours range from 10 AM – 8 PM, depending upon the day of the week.
