A slow moving backwater eddy
lines the campground river bank, providing the perfect conditions
for our famous rope swing, swimming or just a cool refreshing
frolic in the Upper Meramec. Spend your days on Canoeing, Rafting,
Kayaking or Tubing, Float Trips and nights beside the campfire
with Friends, Family and Mother Nature.
The Meramec River is a wonderful stream for camping, floating,
fishing, frolicing, keeping cool on hot summer days and much more.
Located in the Missouri Ozarks the Upper portion of the Meramec
is still considered to be in pristine Natural Condition, and has
become a recreational outdoor "mecca" to the nearby
metropolis of St. Louis Mo. and the entire region. Meramec canoeing,
rafting, kayaking and tubing float trips are unsurpassed among
Missouri's swimming recreational streams as well as RV and tent
camping along the river. Located just 55 minutes from St. Louis,
Arapaho Campground should be your first choice to begin exploring
and experiencing the great outdoors of the Upper Meramec. There
are many areas in the region to explore, and places to camp and
float. We suggest you start closer to home, at Arapaho. Our pavilion
campsites on the river bank will set the standard for you in all
future comparisons. Reasonable pricing, true Ozark Hospitality
and simple (yet deeply satisfying) outdoor pleasures await you.
Call 573-468-3218 and reserve your spot now, they go quickly!
The Arapaho people are
known for their bravery, kindness, hospitality and willingness
to accommodate. They were also much given to ceremonial observances.
Come and celebrate life, the Meramec River and outdoors and enjoy
our personable camping hospitality.
