montrose conservation area missouri

this little off the beaten path camp ground his paved roads, boat access for 2 areas 1 near the damn which closes a gate after 10pm, we use the other area near the conservation station(although ive never seen anyone there) park rangers are mostly non existent , they do drive through, they are quite nice an most the time never stop just smile an wave, there some fire spots but be kind an put up rocks that you can find along the shore, there is bathroom facilities and a dumpster behind the conservation building.

the area is surrounded by trees but the area is clean, nice soft grass, there are pecan an walnut trees so watch out for your heads when its fall lol . you can fish, boat and swim but i recommend  water shoes. the water is very shallow most the time its only chest deep out in the middle. there is loads of wildlife to see an arent much scared of humans, racoons,beavers, crane, squirrels,dear,owls an much more. theres also blackberries in the fall. 

all in all a very nice quiet little free camp area. we go all the time.

Close to city but far enough away

27 hiking trails, you can kayak, rent a pontoon, lots of sailboats on the lake, fishing. 30 minutes from downtown Kansas City

Great Campground

Very clean and nice campground. Steps from the lake. Staff was friendly.

Great family campground

This is a great family campground!!! It’s not nearly as busy as the state park which is awesome!!

Great Family Camping

Nice spacious spots, lake views, friendly campers. Great Hosts! Clean and well maintained. Our favorite spot for camping at Truman Lake. Close to boat launch. Great fishing, lake is accessible from many sites.

Decent sites

It’s really close to the lakes so that’s great but there’s minimal tree coverage and several of the sites are at the bottom of a hill which get water logged when it rains. Call ahead and make sure you aren’t in one of those sites.

What a nice getaway. No internet, no cell, no problem. Great beach with a beautiful view.

2nd favorite place

We had our first trip to Long Shoal last week even with the extreme heat it was a nice spot. We always camp in a tent and the spots were nicely wooded and spaced. This is now our second favorite place for camping. They had the cleanest facilities I have ever seen.
