Cheap Land In Missouri - near Truman Lake.
If you're ready to get away from all the stresses of urban life, cut out a little slice of country for yourself here near Missouri's largest lake - Truman Lake. Truman is a fisherman's dream and considered the more pastoral sister to the Lake of the Ozarks, but you're still only a couple hours away from the big city action of Kansas City.
PROPERTY: This 3 acre rectangular-shaped piece offers about 130 feet of direct road frontage on NE 931, a publicly-maintained gravel road. The tract is generally level with a slight slope towards the west end, where a wet weather creek runs through. The site is moderately wooded with no structures, and your peace and privacy will remain in tact thanks to a very sparse neighborhood. Power is available in the area.
The Bear's Den general store, which services the nearby lake and campground visitors, is a quick walk or 1 minute drive away, and the nearest boat ramp is just 3 minutes away. The lake itself is only a half-mile away, and the lakeside lands to the west of this tract are owned by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, so you're probably safe from intrusive neighbor development until the Sun burns out.
This 55,600-Plus acre Truman Lake offers 958 miles of coast line and has created a diverse wildlife area rich in the history of Osage Indians, explorers, fur trappers, traders and settlers. Truman Lake is a great location for fishing, even in the winter, as power from Truman Dam helps heat the water. It's nationally known for its excellent crappie and bass fishing but boasts great fishing of walleye, hybrid bass and other species of fish. The reservoir is fed by four rivers and several small streams, creating a broad diversity for fishing.
The nearest city is Osceola and it's about a 25 minute drive to the west. Osceola is a quaint little town where you'll find a couple supermarkets, Dollar General, Wendy's, the famous Osceola Cheese company, a vet, and a few other critical services. If you're hungry though, you absolutely can't miss Sugarfoot's Bbq, an award-winning restaurant incredibly popular by locals and tourists alike. Osceola has a colorful Civil War-era past as a once-thriving riverboat port, site of a brutal Civil War battle, and frequent hideout for Jesse James and the Younger Gang. Much of the Victorian-style architecture that was employed during the post-Civil War rebuilding phase still remains.
When it's time to go shopping and stock up on supplies, Warsaw is about 35 minutes to the northeast and hosts a Walmart, several other shops, , restaurants, parks, and marinas. Downtown Warsaw and the Drake Harbor Recreation Area Trails have been designated as “Great Places in Missouri” by the American Planning Association. Take a refreshing walk across the Joe Dice Swinging Suspension Bridge, which is on the National Historic Registry, or ride your bike on some of the state's best and most scenic bicycle trails.
Of course, Truman Lake anchors several state parks, promising bountiful natural beauty and outdoor adventure. The most notable of which is the Harry S. Truman State Park. Clear waters, dramatic bluffs and vibrant summer and fall colors make Harry S Truman State Park an ideal place to vacation. Located on a peninsula, the park offers a marina, ample fishing and boating opportunities, and water that's perfect for every kind of swimmer. Hiking trails, picnic areas and campsites dot the park's open oak woodlands and provide a home for abundant wildlife. Other nearby (within 45 mins) natural lakeside offerings include:

When you're ready to experience the more cosmopolitan side of life, you can take the two hour drive to Kansas City. There's much more than just baseball and barbeque here. With a population of about a half million folks, you'll never have a shortage of things to do. When you're ready to go out for the night, try the Cinema Under the Stars, or a live music venue, then cap it all off at one of several bars and breweries. Many people might be surprised to discover Kansas City is home to a vibrant casino industry too.
Make no mistake: KC loves their sports teams. The 2020 Super Bowl champion Chiefs call this city their home, as do baseball's Royals. Kids will love the Worlds of Fun amusement park, featuring over 100 family rides, thrill rides, waterslides, shows, and attractions including seven world-class roller coasters. It's also hosts the Midwest's largest Halloween event in September and October. For more natural entertainment, try the Kansas City Zoo, 200 acres of adventure bustling with more than 1,700 animals.
If material trappings are what entice you, then allow your shopping bags to overflow as much as the city's fountains. Boutique shops in Westport, brand name favorites at Legends Outlets and antique treasures in the West Bottoms are just a few of the city's shopping hotspots.
Last but certainly not least, Kansas City has made its mark on food. Smoky barbecue. Local distilleries. Every aspect of the culinary and spirits scene possesses a uniquely KC twist that makes it something special. It's a culture that embodies the city's diverse influences, from international flavor and home-style cooking to unrivaled craft beer breweries.
