“Springs, trout, water, wildlife and nature abound”
Reviewed June 7, 2012

Springs, trout, water, wildlife and nature abound. Camping nice but was surprised when accidentally going during trout season to have so many up cooking in the dark so they could all be on the shore when the horn blew at dawn to fish.

“Amazing Park”
Reviewed April 24, 2012

In Missouri, I can't make up my mind which park is best - Hawn, Ha Ha Tonka, Sam A. Baker or Meramec State Park.

Meramec State Park offers wild and wonderful swimming, dozens of caves to poke around in, CCC buildings, nice shower houses and camping, on site canoe services and a store, and an informative visitor center. I give this park a perfect 5 star rating.

“Great Park for family camping and fun.”
Reviewed April 15, 2012

For camping it is one of the best in the State. Quiet, close to very clean bath house, and has handicapped sites as well. Clean and safe.

“A great historic park”
Reviewed April 8, 2012 via mobile

I am 51 years old and have been coming to this park for all 51 years. My mother is 79 and she first came here at 13 years old. There are great hiking trails, beautiful Meramec river runs through the park, a informative visitor center, canoe and kayak rental, weekend evening park ranger lead programs that are great for whole family, Fisher Cave lead tours that are cheap,$3-4 bucks. Great place to camp mostly all flat river basin grounds. Kids with bikes love the freedom of the slow attitude of the campers. Camp fires and fellowship is abundant. Bring a inner tube, raft, frisbee, ball glove, bikes, and sense of adventure.
