ELSBERRY Mo — The Missouri Department of Conservation (MDC) will close the Hamburg Ferry River Access indefinitely for major renovations beginning the week of Sept. 19. The access is located on the Mississippi River 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.
