This is year two!
We’ll be the only campers next to the lake at Rudolf Bennitt Conservation Area in Missouri. Enjoy a 48 acre fishing lake, a twelve mile multi-use hike/bike/horse trail and 3,500+ acres of forest, fields and grasslands and two intermittent streams.
Fishing, Hiking, Biking, Paddling, Relaxing
Get away from the lights, noise and congestion of town and spend time relaxing and remembering what owls, crickets, and coyotes sound like and what a starry night looks like overhead.
This is not a campground, there are no ammenities - no hook-ups, electricity, running water. We'll be camping right next to the lake.

Friday night there will be a campfire and we’ll roast hot dogs, have a pot a chili for chili dogs, and roast marshmallows! We’ll have some camp songs courtesy of Brian and his guitar; bring your instrument along if you have one!
Saturday we will have a catch and release fishing tournament (you will need a Missouri fishing license) and if you want to keep 'em and make a meal, well, that's up to you
You can fish from shore, the covered boat dock area or bring your canoe or kayak.
Saturday night we'll have a potluck dinner where we’ll give out fishing awards.
Service project: MDC has given us special permission to camp by the lake (and are not charging us a fee) so we’d like to show our appreciation by picking up litter around the boat dock area and the lake, perhaps an hour on Saturday morning. Last year, we found quite a few bobbers and fishing lures, some with freshwater sponges growing on them.
This is a casual, laid back affair and this is NOT a campground, we'll be camping next to the lake. There are no services, hook-ups or amenities (well, there is a “privy.”) There is not a dump station or water available and there is not a camp store. The nearest town is Columbia, MO about 28 miles south east.
So, come on out - explore, relax, and rejuvenate with Mother Nature!
