Welcome Trudy and Jim. You're going to really enjoy this little nest.
There are about 92 State parks in MO and many Corp of Engineers camping sites. Down around Branson there are several COE sites that we have stayed in and will again starting next month. If you go down 65 into Arkansas you can stroll across and camp at Bull Shoals. Then follow 160 along the border camping at numerous parks while in route to Mark Twain NF. Johnson Shut-Ins is great. Many more around that area. Almost all lakes in MO have COE camping and they can be very inexpensive.
If you are planning to stop by Little House Customs after you pick up your Casita, come back through Oklahoma and stop over at Robbers Cave State Park on your way home.
You will find so many things to see if you haven't traveled this great land. The National Parks are wonderful.
