Stokell hit on an important point "The usual problem is hiding the bike".
If you ask, the Park Rangers will tell you there is NO camping anywhere on the trail besides the campgrounds and/or parks. The Rangers patrol the trail at night. I am sure they are only trying to keep everyone safe.
I have camped in the city parks, at the Sedalia campground, and simply back in the trees. There really are quite a few options. Print a mileage chart. It will help you choose places to camp. The Katy is an awesome trail. One of my favorite places to be.
