Full of interesting trails. Wonderful picnic venues. And quiet shade. Off the beaten path so it is rarely crowded and privacy is almost always assured. One of our favorite Missouri state parks.
My family recently camped here for 3 nights over the holiday weekend. Even with it being a busy holiday weekend the campground was fairly quiet during the evening hours. The only time we dealt with th... read more »

The RV sites are accommodating. There is wifi which isnt common for surrounding state parks. Wifi is weak if the park is fill. Very clean grounds with trees for shade.
Its a nice park. Well manicured. Nice wide roads. Two hosts on site...one more welcoming than the other. ;-) The campsites are safe and clean. Excellent facilities. 3 stars because of the inconvenience of the park office being closed so often.
Beautiful park! Great for just an afternoon drive. I take older friends here, guys who aren't good on their feet anymore, but enjoy a peaceful leisurely rude in the woods. Generally see some deer, maybe turkeys or turtles, woodpeckers, etc. A good bit of the roads are shaded, so it's usually relative cool. It's a big park, with alot more to offer than I've taken advantage of so far. There's overnight camping, for anything from pup tents to RVs, with hookups for electric, wastewater disposal, etc. Shower facilities available part of the year.
Babler state park is scenic and well manicured. It's fairly easy to access from the Metro Saint Louis Area as well. There's plenty to do here including hiking, biking, horseback riding, and geocaching. While close to the STL Metro area it is remote enough that cellphone reception can be spotty. If you geocache by phone, or expect to do something like Pokemon Go here, you might run into some disappointment. Plan ahead if your're caching and download what you need in advance or have another GPS ready. The trails are also pretty well marked with color codes and symbols to let you know where travel might be prohibited by horseback or bicycle. With that said, have a map handy because the sign posts don't indicate where you are on the trails or if they are loops.
Nice campground. Good selection of trails. The spring was a great place to visit on a hot summer day hike.
