Overnight in St. Charles, MO
Well crap. Twice. In a couple of weeks I'm going to jump on the Katy and ride to St. Charles and back (to Kansas City). I've been on the trail many times...like many on BF. The problem is St. Charles. I always have a tough time finding some place to pitch my tent.
Last year I asked soooo many people and got fifty different answers, This week I sent an email to the St. Charles Parks Department asking where I can pitch my tent. "There are no tent camping accommodations in St. Charles." The closest place for tent camping is Klondike Park, a good 14-15 miles SW.
I've even sent emails to a couple of the B&Bs to see if I can pay a small fee and pitch my tent on their property. I haven't gotten any replies yet.
Anyone found a decent place to stay in St. Charles? I'd like to stay in a B&B but they are a little too expensive for me.
I may just have to wing it...like always.
Thanks for any ideas!
