ELSBERRY, Mo — The Missouri Department of Conservation (MDC) will close the Hamburg Ferry River Access on the Mississippi River starting the week of Dec. 10 until further notice. MDC is closing the access in order to renovate the entrance road. The access is located at the end of Highway P in southern Pike County, just north of the Lincoln County border.

Boaters, anglers, and hunters should seek alternate locations for accessing the Mississippi River. The nearest alternate public boat ramp is Norton Woods Access. To reach Norton Woods Access, take Hatfield Road east from Highway 79 just south of Elsberry, then turn right on Norton Woods Road through B. K. Leach Conservation Area to reach the boat ramp. For more information contact Ross Dames, Area Manager, at 573-248-2530.
