Camdenton is home to several of the lakes most prominent land marks including Ha Ha Tonka State Park, Lovers Leap and Bridal Cave.
Lover’s Leap, on the southern 31.5mm of the Niangua: Some say it is so named because of the Indian maiden who hurled herself from the bluff rather than forsake her lover, who later fell to the same fate, along with the couple’s interloper in the struggle that ensued. Bridal Cave, at Thunder Mountain, just north of Camdenton on Hwy 5, also gets its name based on a legend of Indian weddings. More than 1,500 have been performed there since.
Ha Ha Tonka: It was a hunting trip that introduced Robert M. Snyder, a wealthy businessman from Kansas City, to the site in 1903. Captivated, he purchased 60 tracts of land and proceeded to build a private retreat with the crown jewel being a huge, European style, castle-like mansion atop the bluff overlooking the spring chasm. When Bagnell Dam was built, the waters of the Lake backed up the spring branch and destroyed Ha Ha Tonka Lake. The Snyder sons sued Union Electric for damages and settled out of court.
