The 501 acres of wooded hills and bottomlands in Wallace State Park are named for the family that once owned part of this land. The park came into existence in the 1930s through the preservation efforts of the Cameron Sportsman’s Club, and its early developmental stages were part of a Works Progress Administration project. It’s a beautiful place, featuring forested hills, moist bottomlands, field openings, and a stream with several low waterfalls, all arranged around the park’s centerpiece— Lake Allaman, a 6-acre pond with excellent fishing and swimming.

Very nice campground. Campsite 35 was ranked the best on the trail guide and it most definitely is. Secluded and sits back away from the other sites surrounded by cedars. It is the closest site to the lake with a nice trail running to it. This is a perfect campground for kayaking or conoeing as you can easily explore the many inlets for hours. Hiking along the peninsula will take you on a full loop but if you're really up for a hike in the woods, Piney Creek Forest is a short drive away near Shell Knob with many scenic surprises.
