American Legion Park in Hartsburg
Floyd Dowell from Manhattan, KS on 06/06/2016 01:32 PM:
Didn't stay there, but it looked like a fairly quiet place to stay. Nice small town. The Katy Trail bathrooms had running water, so it could be a good place to stay. There was a Gazebo some people were camping in since rain was in the forecast.

Do you know if people have weddings here? I think it would be pretty

under the gazebo!

The park is called Volunteer Park (for all the people from 32 states who helped rebuild Hartsburg after the 1993 flood). We have had several weddings in the gazeebo and they have turned out well. You should contact our new mayor Gary Caldwell for more info (573-657-7302) or GECALDWELL@centurytel.net

I used this email address today, and it was not a current email address for the mayor of Hartsburg. The respondant said he was not connected with Hartsburg or the KT.

 
Bud Ditzfeld, Mayor from Hartsburg, MO on 07/08/2011 02:14 PM:
Sorry about that, Linda. The previous post was bad information that never should have been posted. You may reach me at rditzfeld@bjc.org. Thanks.

Has anyone stayed here before? We're thinking of camping here, but the information is sparse...

 
michael rodemeyer from hartsburg on 05/02/2009 05:01 PM:
There are two places to camp in Hartsburg. One is the American Legion/Lions Ballpark and one is the Volunteer Park next to the red caboose. For small groups and to be close to food and wine the Volunteer Park is best. Larger groups can set up in the baseball field. Either place should be first approved by Bill Abrahams first to see if there are any events scheduled) his # is 573-657-2317.

There is a gazebo in the park. My friend and I just rolled our sleeping bags out and had a roof over our heads.

My 9 year old son and I are planning a ride on the Katy Trail over Easter Weekend. We typically stay in Rocheport, but are considering a new destination this time around. Are the restaurants in Hartsburg good... and kid friendly? Can we easily ride to Rocheport from Hartsburg? Thanks for your thoughts/suggestions.
