I understand there is a public park you can camp in at Boonville. Is that true and where is it ?

I don't know if there is or not - we always camp at the Roundhouse In Franklin - it's just across the bridge from Boonville. Very nice campsite, clean shower house, reasonable price and owned by good folks. Sharon

Regarding bicycleguy from Topeka's camping questions. We also camp just north of Booneville at the Roundhouse campground. (A 'Roundhouse" is where trains used to turn around at). Quiet, beautiful, clean and clean showers. Then going east the next place is Coopers Landing at Easley, or Hartsburg, or Jeff City, depending on what mileage you want to do. Next is Steamboat Junction campground between Bluffton and Rhineland, right on the trail. It also has a nice shower house but only one person can use the shower at a time. The other drawback is there is only a porta-potty for a toilet. However, it is very conveniently located. Next is Hermann, in the city park. Next may be Marthasville, depending on what mileage you want. You can camp on the south side of the ball diamonds, which is their city activity area so the bathrooms are open and have showers. Then Klondike Park, a few miles east of Augusta. Be sure to stop at one of the wineries in Augusta and the brewery too. Brewery has good food. Be aware that the brewery on Friday and Saturday days and nights in October is busy, and call ahead to check their hours as they are reduced through the week after September. Happy Trails.
