Babler Memorial State Park – Wildwood, MO
Babler Memorial State Park is a nice, basic campground about 30 minutes west of downtown St Louis.
All sites are paved, most with 30/50 amp electric. There is fresh water available at the dump station to top off your tank before parking. The showers and restroom facilities are very nice, the grounds are maintained to high standards. There are no playground facilities or activities at the campground, but the day-use areas of the park are immense. The pool complex is impressive and there are many miles of hiking, biking, and horse trails. It makes a nice home while visiting the sights of St Louis.
There are several restaurants within a short drive. We took the advice of the camp host and had dinner at Super Smokers BBQ. It was good, affordable food in a relaxed, home-style atmosphere.
Our visit here was very quiet and relaxing and we consider it a bargain for $21/night!
