Camping or lodging near Machens

Where do people camp near the Machens trailhead. I want to ride from Sedalia to my home 60 miles South of Machens and Machens would be the perfect stopping point for me, but there doesn't seem to be anywhere to stay the night. Is there primitive camping close by there?

Klondike Park might be the closest place on the Katy to camp. It's still quite a way from Machens. Here's a web site for camping in that area. https://www.sccmo.org/1956/Camping
