If you are looking for a nice free campground, this is another great place. Another gem I should really keep to myself. But, for those who are looking for peace and quiet and back to nature, again, this is it. This site wouldn't let me put in free, so I put in $1, but it costs nothing, nada, zip, zero dollars, just a little respect for nature. It offers nothing in the way of amenities. No water hookups, no electricity, no showers and only vault toilets. Though these are the cleanest vault toilets I've ever seen (I actually used them). There is potable water at the ranger station and store at the lake which you can use to fill your tanks. They also have a dump station at the same place, so you don't have to take that home or find a place to dump. The ranger station is also where you can rent boats for a couple bucks a day. You can't bring you own boat because they have a zebra muscle problem. They also give free tours of the fish hatchery, all you have to do is ask. Pretty darn cool stuff for a free campground from the Missouri Conservation Department. There are a ton of really nice sites and two years ago they closed down an entire section from non-use of the sites. The roads are paved on the north side of the lake, but gravel on the south side, but the roads and the sites are level and easy access for campers large and small. Many of the sites are shaded and water access is only a very short walk from the campsites. The only drawback is you have to bring your own fire ring, which has to have a bottom. Some people cut out the bottom of a barrel. We, went to Wal-Mart and bought a fire pit, which we also use at home, so it works perfectly. It is a conservation area, not a state park. But, it is again just fabulous for peace and quiet. We actually meet people who understand nature and just want a peaceful time fishing. We camped at Hunnewell Lake Conservation Area in a Travel Trailer.Undo
