Reviews for Dr. Edmund A. Babler Memorial State Park

| Camp in the Woods

Nice rv park for small rv's. The end loupes are only big enough to turn a car around. Would only recommend sites 001 thru 012 for large units but of course these fill up with tenters. Sites do not have water or sewer connections since the CCC did not put them in. Would not consider this rv park again.

If you are looking for a full hookup campground with all the latest facilities, this isn't it. But if you like to "camp" then this is a nice quiet park with reasonably easy access to the city. Not all sites have electric so be careful if booking online. None have sewer or water. You can fill your fresh tank at the dump station or any number of spigots scattered around. Great hiking trails, open areas and most sites have shade. This park was great in the fall but not sure I'd want to stay in the heat of summer as the pool is closed and there is no substantial water feature to cool off in. If that is something you need/want, check out Cuivere River SP a little further north on Hwy 61. Sites are mostly level and decent sized. Prices are reasonable.

| Beautiful Park

By user-5876679... on 2017-10-23.

Very nice campground, restrooms were clean. No water at campsites, dump station easily accessible. Camp hosts were very nice. The visitors center was enjoyable. The lady working the desk was very helpful. We were a bit disappointed in the upkeep of the state park itself. It seems to be falling into disrepair from lack of funds, maybe? But overall we enjoyed the hiking trails that are well marked, and the campground was quiet with roomy RV sites with fire rings and picnic tables. We will use this park for camping again.

| The price is right!

We stayed 2 nights, nice big site, pretty level, paved. Camp hosts were friendly. They sell firewood for $4/bundle. Price is about half of any other park we found in the area if you don't mind driving a bit.

St. Louis has grown up all around this old park. It feels a little strange to camp in the suburbs. But the park is huge and the campground well away from city sounds. The older facilities (pool) are closed up and the place seems to be running using only volunteers and a grounds crew. But the bath house is perfectly nice. Camp sites are well maintained. Sites in the further back electric loop have more privacy but might be hard for large rigs to navigate. Park has one of my favorite features - private paved bike trail runs off through the woods.

Absolutely wonderful stay -- friendly and courteous staff, clean facilities, nice level sites, and a variety of trails. Not a bad drive into the St. Louis, either. We dropped off our trailer and were at the arch within 45 minutes, had dinner and came back for a lovely, peaceful night. Outlet mall just down the highway and lots of lovely horse farms surrounding the park. Miles of trails in the park for walking, biking, and horseback riding. Would stay again in a heartbeat!

| Nice spacious spots

Signage a bit hard to follow To find the camp spots very tight turn into The campground road! - maybe just me! Nice roomy spots and space between sites. might be hard for really large rigs to fit - 32 did just fine but short, tight turns and some spots could be hard to navigate for large rigs. Some spots are very shady and some are full sun. Trash is far away And only by the hosts spots. Nice shower house - clean and was nice. Great trails to walk. Would go again-like many state parks.
