If you are staying at the FF, in Fenton, Mo (40 miles away), or St. Robert, Mo (60 miles away), and are traveling down I-44 (Old historic Route 66), this park is worth a stop.  Just three miles off I-64, you can enjoy a picnic, walk or bike ride with your family, or loved ones, right along the scenic Meramec River.  The park offers camping, overnight rooms, a cave to enjoy, picnic tables and more.  You are about 30 miles away from Six Flags, so this is a place to enjoy some wonderful sightseeing for free.  Here are some pictures from today!
