I'm headin out to your neck of the woods in the morning. Plan on doin an overnighter in Hercules Glade, unless you can recommend something else that's within an hour of Kimberling City....
Sorry I didn't get back to you sooner. Never been to the area you're going to be read a lot of it and it looks great. Only negative is the water will be low or dried up because of the drought but then i'm sure you know that! Enjoy Southern Missouri!
