Wheatland Park

Pomme De Terre Lake

Wheatland Park sits along the sparkling shores of Pomme de Terre Lake, known as the "gem of the Ozarks," for its deep, clear waters.

The phrase "Pomme de Terre" is French for potato or "apple of the earth." Most likely, the river was named by early French trappers and fur traders, who discovered plants resembling potatoes on the riverbanks.

Wheatland Park has 36 campsites with electric and water hookups and 25 sites with electric hookups only. The accessible group picnic shelter fits up to 75 guests and has electricity.
Additional amenities include two shower houses, a boat ramp, courtesy dock,
playground and a swim beach.
