Things to Know about Greenleaf State Park Cabins Before Your Stay

Here we go!

Brief History of Greenleaf’s Cabins

Greenleaf Lake is a manmade lake on the western edge of the Ozarks. Here you’ll find rolling hills that make the lake particularly pleasing to the eye.

The lake and the park were constructed by the WPA as part of the New Deal in the 1930s.

The history of the cabins is quite interesting and is an interesting bit of park trivia.

According to the Greenleaf CCC Auto Tour:

“Cabins 5 through 14 were built by the WPA.

Notice that the stonework has a natural stacked appearance. Also, there are stone flanges at each corner of these cabins.

Cabins #1, 2, 3, and 4 are believed to have been constructed during World War II as cabins for Army officers from Camp Gruber.

Unlike the other cabins, these cabins do not have fireplaces.

The smooth stone exterior of these cabins is much different from the other cabins.

It is believed that these cabins were built by German prisoners of war who were held at a large POW camp at Camp Gruber during World War II.”

Staying in the Native Stone Cabins

The stone cabins at Greenleaf are one and two-bedroom cabins that sleep between 2 and 8 people, depending on the cabin.

The max occupancy in this cabin is six. Pets are allowed with a $20 per night pet fee.

I’ve seen this cabin in the online reservation system, but the park instructs that you should call to reserve this cabin.

Anglers can use the fishing dock in hopes of catching largemouth bass or crappie. Young anglers can utilize the kids fishing pond.

You need a fishing license if you are over sixteen. Those sixteen and under do not need a fishing license whether fishing in the kids pond or Greenleaf Lake.

Greenleaf Cabins Review

We loved our cabin stay! We stayed in Cabin 13, which is a one-bedroom cabin with a lake view and a screened-in front porch.

The front porch was a major highlight for us, but note that the majority of cabins do not have them.

The appliances were old but worked great. The kitchen isn’t fancy, but I appreciated that since I didn’t want to pay for anything fancier.

The bedroom was cool, with air conditioning that was working great in the summertime heat.

The bed was cozy, and I loved sleeping with the lake views through the window.

The bathroom sink being in the middle of the bedroom is a bit strange, but it didn’t pose any logistical issues.

The shower was hot with decent water pressure.

Overall, staying in a cabin that was built almost one hundred years ago was fun and exciting, yet comfortable and convenient with modern amenities.

We would happily stay again!
