I don't have to be right on the water. The one parel I'm looking at by Rocky Mount is .5 miles from the water. And the other parcel is about 2.0 miles and it's in between Versailles and Grovais Mills.

By just looking at maps it looks like the Rocky Mount area is a little less developed and and secluded. Where is the Versailles area down to the water had more to do, which means less secluded

Consider the Clinton area, a little farther west than you'd mentioned but easy access to Truman lake. A short ride to I49 and 70, about 4 hrs from Des Moines. That should cover your travel plans.

We head down there a lot since we've been house searching. Avenue of the Saints is a dream ride: no traffic, great condition. We typically stop in California (Burgers Smokehouse) and Tipton at the Amish bakery.

We'll be closing on our retirement home outside Warsaw on LOZ, 100' of shoreline and the property taxes are about $1200 a year, roughly a third of our Iowa taxes.

Missouri deer are really small compared to Iowa. Lots of other game, though. Great fishing. I stopped fishing in Iowa when the license got really expensive.
