USA Today readers voted Ha Ha Tonka State Park one of the top 10 state parks in the U.S. in a 2015 poll. In 2014, Active Times listed three Missouri State Parks — Johnson Shut-ins, Katy Trail and Ha Ha Tonka — in their Top 36 Stunning State Parks. After visiting 100 state parks, Midwest Living put Ha Ha Tonka, the Katy Trail, Meramec and Sam A. Baker state parks in its list of 35 great Midwest state parks.

Lawmakers passed the measure with enough support in May to override the governor's action if legislators stick to their original votes.", www.ksdk.com
