  • Stayed at #160 and liked this side of the park, was a level spot which was nice. Nice space in the middle for kids to play. The river was right along side the camp group. The restrooms were well maint...  read more »
  • Really nice cabins and a beautiful forest as well as great hiking. CCC cabins have been tastefully updated and provide both room and comfort. Well worth getting off the Interstate. 
  • Meramec State Park offers camping, hiking, swimming, river floats and beautiful scenery. The park is located about 65 miles from St. Louis and is close to shopping, dining and isn't too far off Inters...  read more »
  • A lovely park! Rarely crowded and beautiful. The staff is absolutely unhelpful, but better than the county parks. The trails are mostly maintained (though not as well as state parks usually are). Everything here is gorgeous and that's what matters most.
  • It was a nice state park. We missed Fisher cave but were able to go into Sheep cave and the kids enjoyed it. We were told at the visitors center how to find it. The visitors center has a great exibit that we all really enjoyed. We had one misshap with a dead tree limb falling almost on top of one of our kids coming out from sheep cave so it would be good if they would cut down the dead trees there where people are walking through other than that it was a really good trip. Also there is not much for swimming areas that we found there.
  • This is a jewel of a park in Missouri's state Park system. There are numerous trails of varying difficulties and lengths, several caves, one with guide lead tours, outdoor programs, clean, gorgeous campgrounds with numerous amenities, cabins, a motel, scenic overlook and river access for canoeing, kayaking , boating or fishing. At a little over an hour outside of Saint Louis it's a close escape into the wild.
  • We stayed in the RV camping section #124 pull through for one night. The park is beautiful with lots of trees and our site was near the river. But, the site pad was very old and so unlevel that no matter what we did we couldn't level our RV enough to use our frig. The bathrooms and shower facility was so filthy and disgusting we would not use it. Sorry we paid the money to stay there.
  • Really great tour!! So educational and knowledgeable!! Great first cave experience. So environmentally conscious!
