Hart Creek Retreat, is located just outside of Hartsburg, Missouri with quick access to the Katy Trail, Missouri River, and Hart Creek Conservation Access Trails. There are over 160 acres to find the camping area to your liking. The land stretches from low land creek areas and hollers up to wooded hills.  It is flanked with large flat and prairie lands and features a large spring fed pond full of fish (mostly perch) with a beach for swimming and a couple kayaks.  Forest lands provide micro waterfalls, fern gullies, and a healthy variety of native trees and plants.  These woods will lead you to the high ridge, which includes a rocky outlook point. You will find all kinds of wildlife here! The land is certified organic. The Katy Trail is wonderful for cyclists and 1.5 miles away which makes for a easy ride to the Hartsburg access of the trail. More hiking is available very close by at Hart Creek Conservation Area.  These trails are amazing with long hikes to the bluffs that overlook the Missouri River and stunning views!  If you want to bring a boat, the mighty Missouri River is close by with Hartsburg River Access point less than 4 miles away.  Residents enjoy boating up river to Cooper's Landing for a cold brew and gorgeous sunsets.

Great campsite. Very quite, calm and peaceful. We explored some of the trails, kayaked a little on the pond but mostly hung out at our camp. It was exactly what our family was looking for. We will definitely go back.

Cool pterodactyl sculpture at night.

Such an awesome place to visit! We were just passing through, but I’d come back to the area just to stay here again! Pocket the dog was an adorable cohost that checked in on us and helped us pack up the car. Everyone was so kind and helped us with some other travel recommendations. 10/10 would recommend!

Beautiful land! Great hosts. We encountered salamanders, frog, snakes, all sorts of birds and even heard coyotoes in the distance every night! Was also very spacious which was a plus. Would definitely recommend!

Enjoyed our two night stay. Lizzy was friendly and helpful. Friday night was great. But Saturday from midnight to 4am there were campers yelling and screaming off and on and I was too tired and lazy to walk to where the info help number was and get phone coverage. Those campers just ruined a wonderful outing and expect it was unusual as there was a big festival nearby.

We really enjoyed our stay. It was very quiet and relaxing. Pocket was a great visitor and played very nicely with our dog, Bauer. We also enjoyed access to the pond where our dog loved swimming around. We hope to visit again!
