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.

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 maintained and showers were some of the nicest in a state park. No cell reception in the park - could drive... 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 Interstate Highway 44.

I have been coming to this park since I was a kid. There are many electric sites, great play ground and open areas. The river is right by the camp ground with an area to swim and put in a boat. We take our kayaks to the boat dock and float down to the campground. This is about 1.5 miles.... More

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 are decently kept, and while not 5-Star hotel accommodations make a fantastic getaway. We've stayed... More

Zipline was AWESOME, a must do!! Justin and Zach were great guides. The cave tour was ok. Our guides, Jeremy and Shantel were great. However, the tour was only ok. There were way to many people on the tour. We had a tough time hearing our guides.

The state park is beautiful. And the Fisher Cave tour was great. The guide was knowledgeable, and the price for our family of 5 was much better than the nearby Meremac Caverns, where we would have paid three times as much.
