Hartsburg What to Pack
Luggage and bags: anything will do
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: depends on the season. Hartsburg has 4 distinct seasons. Winter is Nov-March and can be very cold, snowy and icy. Spring, April-June, can still be cool at night and tends to be wet and windy. Summer will get well into the 90's most days and stay warm at night. Usually quite humid thru August. Sept starts to cool off at night but may still be quite warm during the day, usually dry. October is the BEST! usually lots of sun with daytime highs in the 60-70s and nights 40-50s.
Photo Equipment: definitely lots of photo ops! right on the river bottom and lots of quaint old towns along the MKT trail
Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: Enjoy the (muddy) Missouri river in your boat and camp at many state parks in the area. Bike or walk the MKT trail
