Nice small park. Beautiful trout fishery and streams. Easy stroll. Very well-kept.
Incredible campground setting!!! Absolutely beautiful. Crystal clear water that’s fun for kids and adults. Really interesting things to do and see in the park. Not too hot in the summer. We went 2 summers ago and my kids still talk about it.
The ONLY reason I did not give this campground a glowing 5 stars was because of the staff. There was one man in particular who was just a jerk and rude. There was some other staff that were just not pleasant & welcoming but they weren’t jerks. I did call the main administrative offices to report the man I referenced above and of course they apologized and said they’d take care of it appropriately, I never knew the outcome.
We loved being at this campground. There was tons of shade and trails for hiking, biking, and exploring. The river was fun to play in and we floated one day while we were there too. Lots of places to stop and play on the river.
Maramec Spring Park is a great place for camping and fishing in Missouri. The Park contains the fifth largest spring in the state. An average of 100 million gallons of water flows from the Spring daily. This is a quiet campground near St James, MO, about 2 hours west of St Louis. There are camping sites along the Meramec River. The Camping season is from March to the end of October. A limited number of sites have electric hookups. Non-electric sites are $16; Electric sites are$36 per night. The campground is subject to flash flooding. The park has a country store, and a museum with the remains of an old iron furnace. This is a Trout Fishing Park!
Nestled in Mid Missouri this place is a jam! Popular with locals there are trails, historic iron works and a fish hatchery…very cool place. Close to highway, good overnight spot!
Like Alley Spring, I could spend all day in this park. The spring is beautiful and the surrounding water works are really neat. If you can get a spot, I suggest going during the frontier days.
Nothing to amazing about this campground, but it's overall a nice place to camp. General store has access to fishing gear and a decent restaurant. Many sites have access to electricity and the bathrooms are decent. Very quiet in the off season, but can get crowded during the summer.
Pros: Reservable, beautiful wooded camping areas along the river. Tour the Spring, museum, hatchery, and iron works. Playground and historic driving tour with scenic overlook. Most popular for trout fishing.
Cons: Prone to flooding. Campsites 49 and 50 will be covered in water even with a little rain. Campground shower house is pretty rough although there is a sign that states upgrades are coming. No water hookups.
