Overview

Description

Welcome to Red Haw State Park. Visitors are inspired by its beauty and tranquility.

Recreation:

Lake Activities
Red Haw's 70-acre lake has long been known as a premier pan-fishing destination especially for large bluegill. Several fishing jetties and numerous shoreline accesses make for easy bank fishing. Two boat ramps provide access for boaters. The lake is a "no-wake" lake and only electric trolling motors are allowed. Unsupervised swimming is available at the beach.

Trails
A 4-mile marked grass trail hugs the lake through the timbered park and provides access o the south to an adjacent 229-acre wildlife management area with large parcels of reconstructed prairie. An upper trail east of the lake and short trails elsewhere provide exploratory options for hikers. The east and south trail system traverses undeveloped areas and hikers may be able to catch a glimpse of the numerous wildlife species in the park.

Picknicking/Shelters
Five open shelters may be reserved for special occasions or used for free on a first-come first-serve basis. The historic CCC-built stone shelter with its large fireplace is especially popular for wedding and other large gatherings.

Facilities:

Camping
Campers can enjoy a heavily shaded, 80-site campground (58 electrical hook-ups) with a playground and modern restroom and shower facilities. A variety of "child-friendly"movies are shown during the summer months on the north campground hill.

Nearby Attractions:

Nearby Chariton holds Red Bud Days in mid-April, coinciding with a kid's fishing outing at the park. Visit the park in mid to late April and enjoy the brilliance of thousands of red bud trees in bloom. Race fans can enjoy the Knoxville Raceway located 30 minutes north of Chariton on Hwy 14. Thirty minutes to the southeast, visitors can explore Rathbun Lake and visit Honey Creek Resort State Park.
