Parking in Sedalia

Dad (70) and I are planning to ride from Sedalia to Dutzow and catch the train back to Sedalia. Camping each night. First night camping will be at the MO State fairgrounds. Question: is free parking available at the fairgrounds or would it be better to leave my van at the Amtrak station?
Also, is the bridge from Dutzow to Washington really that bad? we are both fairly experienced cyclists. Any input is most appreciated. Thanks!

I have been planning a similar trip for this summer and have emailed the Sedalia Chamber of Commerce and this was their reply:

You have 2 choices you can leave your vehicle at 2nd and Osage 2 block from the Amtrak station and across the street from the police station, or you can leave it at the Katy Trail State Park Trailhead in the DNR parking lot on the east side of the Katy Depot, that is 6-7 blocks away and is next to the Katy trail. Both are secure.
