Overview

Generations of Missourians have passed through Dr. Edmund A. Babler’s Memorial State Park's massive stone gateway for cookouts and family get-togethers or to spend time with friends. The park’s camping facilities, Civilian Conservation Corps architecture, and hiking, bicycling and equestrian trails help all visitors find their place to get away from it all, just minutes from St. Louis.

Not far from our hotel, it was really neat right in the middle of a heavy suburb neighborhood, you feel out in the middle of nowhere

Babler State Park is a large park with a couple paved roads going through it. It is a great place for working out. Lots of trees and shade. They have a lot of picnic tables. There are better options for hiking in the area.

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.

Babler has a wide variety of trails, easy and difficult, short and long. Most connect to other trails so you can create your own loops. Most trails are in decent shape but you may find a few that have overgrown weeds. The paved trail has...More
