I wish to buy some undeveloped rural land for recreational purposes. What words of wisdom or relevant recommendations (books, blogs, etc.) can you offer?

I own a home in the metro St. Louis area, but would like to buy some undeveloped land (about 20 acres) overlooking a river about 75 miles outside of town. I'm not looking at this an investment opportunity, nor do I have plans to move there. I mainly just want a private place to go camping, fishing, hiking, cycling, and so on. I expect I'd be out there a couple of times a month when the weather is nice, and almost never during the winter.
I haven't talked to a real estate agent yet, so I want to get educated on this before I call. What advice do you have?
