I looked on the link here from "towns and services". Are they basically saying it's ok to camp anywhere in the woods between Hartsburg and Wilton?

It is not okay to camp just "anywhere" along the Katy Trail as it is prohibited except for desginated areas. I believe this is the map of the site you are looking for in the Hartsburg area.
I have not had a chance to go by there this year, as I wanted to check this out. I seem to recall someone else posted that this area was flooded earlier this year, so you may want to check with the Missouri Conservation Department as they are in charge of this particular area.

Campground entrance on Katy Trail is 2 miles northwest of Hartsburg trailhead, and .4 miles on northwest of this entrance is a levee, about 100 feet past this levee, and areas on northwest, water was over the trail. Campground is a few feet higher than trail and was nearly .5 mile from flood area. Not a bad looking area, primitive and grass is a bit long, but I have never seen anyone using it.
