Best Kept Secret in Northwest Missouri

Lake Viking is a private 630-acre man-made lake with excellent fishing, lots of wildlife, water sports, boating, skiing, and swimming. It’s a great place to live!

630 Acres of Clean, Clear Water!

An “Ozark-type lake,” Lake Viking is surrounded by hills and many natural lake fingers or coves. The lake ranges to a depth of over 70 feet.

Over 19 Miles of Maintained Shore Line

The entire Lake Viking community encompasses over 2,300 acres of hilly, tree-covered land.

Owned Entirely by Private Property Owners

Real Estate at Lake Viking is a “traditional market” where private owners offer their property for sale to prospective buyers, with or without the involvement of real estate brokers.

Conveniently Located in Rural Countryside

It’s a great place to live! Lake Viking is just an hour northeast of Kansas City (or an hour east of St. Joseph on U.S. Highway 36, then turn north) on I-35 to Exit #68.
