Tikiman started the idea a year ago... This fall, September 27-30, it's a boondocking rally.
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, Stargazing, Relaxing
Come get away from the lights, noise and congestion of town and spend some time relaxing and remembering what bull frogs sound like and what a starry night sky 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 in our group. The area is not large, we'll park the trailers in a circle and then park our tow vehicles in the parking lot.

We're hopeful by September there will be rain and we can have a campfire.
Friday night there will be a campfire and we’ll roast hot dogs and marshmallows.
Saturday we will have a catch and release fishing tournament and a potluck dinner where we’ll give out some fun fishing awards.
We also would like to do a service project. MDC has been nice to give 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.
Weather permitting each night, we’ll put up the telescope and check out the moon and a few planets.
So, come on out - explore, relax, and rejuvenate with Mother Nature!
