Part of Dupont Conservation Area. Mostly used by hunters. Just 20 min outside Hannibal, Mo, sits just off the banks of the Mississippi River. No site numbers, no utilities But it's well lit, there are port-a-potties and there is running water at the administration building. Definitely a great place to stay when it's not game season. I was told they release flood gates during duck migration season, and what appears to be a field is flooded to become a refuge and a protected hunting area.

This is a hidden gem for primitive camping, and is accessed by going to the Ted Shanks Conservation Area. Although we did not opt to stay due to the mosquitos, we did drive the entire camping area. The sites overlook the river, and are shaded by trees. Sites are nicely spaced, with thin gravel pads that are flat enough to allow leveling with blocks; some are pull through. There are rock fire rings, and we saw one picnic table.

We had no problem negotiating the well maintained gravel roads to this campground with our truck and trailer, but it could be tricky for a large rig. It is accessed by traveling to Ashburn, MO, crossing the tracks, then turning left at the sign (see photo).

There is much marshland nearby, but the roads are elevated. However, the area is subject to flooding if the river rises. But, if the campground is open, it's a winner.
