Best places to stargaze in the Midwest US?

I am trying to organize a short camping trip with a friend. We would like to go somewhere in Southeastern Missouri, Southern Illinois or Southwestern Kentucky where there is little to no light pollution. Our plan is to spend some time photographing the stars, particularly the band of the Milky Way that's visible here on Earth when skies are clear.

We are not locked in to those locations. I live in Columbia, MO and he lives in Bowling Green, KY, and we are trying to split the difference in terms of driving. However, if a place in this general region strikes you as particularly suitable, please suggest it anyway.
