Group Camping and Float trips

If you are looking for a place for a group to go and have a fun float trip, this is it. They are only open on weekends and by reservation. They only offer group campsites, which is why the camping rate is so high. It is $50/night for 10 people. You get a nice open area with a pavillion, picnic tables, and a firering. Each group site is serviced by its own port-a-potty. While this is not an ideal toilet situation, they are clean and stocked.

For float trips they pick you up from your campsite and bus you to your put in point. You can float the Meramec for 4 or 9 miles and you end back at the campsite.

The real wins for this campground are that the operators are so nice and accommodating! They drive the bags of ice you buy to your campsite for you (cash only) and they will drive your coolers back to your site after a float. Also, this is much closer to St.Louis than many other float trip outfitters.
