We made an overnight stop on a road trip from Milwaukee to Phoenix. There wasn't much to do in the area so we decided to stop here. The Meramec Caverns was an interesting stop with a tour of the underground caverns. Though it was a...More

We have been there many times as the park has been around since we were kids. River access hiking and camping. However usually very crowded as it is close to St Louis. Family atmosphere.Recommended.

We had a wedding reception picnic at shelter #1. It was quite nice, with beautiful surroundings, and clean. The only drawback is that there was no cell phone signal in the area.

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 Interstate Highway 44.

Several friends from college and us have spent Labor Day weekend at the park for over 30 years. We get cabins (advance reservations a MUST!) and a shelter. Keep in mind these are cabins in the woods, some built back in the 1930s. But they...More

Sorry we have never stayed in the cabins. Plenty to do here- hiking, river rafting, cook outs, cave exploring, fishing, rock beach area etc. It is quiet and beautiful. My favorite camping spot.

Yes. A major campground. Includes showers and decent bathroom facilities. Plan ahead, though, as it is often to capacity on holiday weekends.

As far as I know it doesn't cost anything to hike. You should google Meramec State park and ask them.. They'd know best.
