Undara Studio

2 sites · Lodging16 acres · Park Hills, MO
We have both led lives that involved traipsing about the globe, bouncing continent to continent, but a few years ago we gave ourselves the opportunity to simplify and settle in (or, for Keith, to return to) the Ozarks. After enjoying non-commercial, owner-hosted properties in a few countries, we decided to open our doors to like/open-minded souls, to offer an escape, a place to ground and recharge. In just a few years, through our three offerings, we've hosted well over 1000 guests, sharing innumerable tales and countless bottles of wine. Hosting is just something we enjoy.

Camping near Eureka with swimming guide

Overview

Travelers along Interstate 44 in eastern Missouri often recognize Eureka by the colorful roller coasters and thrill rides visible from the highway, thanks to Six Flags theme park, which is just one attraction that brings visitors to this small town west of St. Louis. Some use it as a home base for visiting the city, thanks to the short 30 minute drive into downtown. Others use it as a jumping-off point for exploring the natural areas that ring the city. Route 66 State Park and several nature preserves and conservation areas are found nearby, offering scenic spots for hiking and biking. Private RV parks here especially cater to families, with a range of organized activities, pools, free wifi, and full hookups.

Where to go

Dr. Edmund A. Babler Memorial State Park

With facilities built by the Civilian Conservation Corps, Babler State Park prides itself for welcoming generations of visitors who have come to explore the woodlands and prairies or to gather with family. One of Missouri’s oldest parks, this is a good option for exploring Eureka or visiting St. Louis. The well-developed campground has spacious sites for tents and RVs, offering concrete pads and electric hookups.

St. Louis

While Eureka is a popular home base for exploring St. Louis, campers can also do the opposite, staying in parks, cabins, or glamping rentals closer to the city. A handful of urban RV parks provide easy access to St. Louis’s attractions, which include the sprawling Forest Park, numerous family attractions and museums, and a vibrant downtown, known as the home of the St. Louis Cardinals and the Gateway Arch National Park.

Meramec State Park

Another state park option close to Eureka is Meramec State Park, offering recreational opportunities along the Meramec River, which makes a slow sliver through the park’s woodlands and bluffs. Hop in or on the waters for boating, paddling, swimming, or fishing. An onsite cave offers fascinating tours. The park campground has sites suitable for tents and RVs, whether you want to dry camp or have electric or full hookups.

When to go

If Eureka’s nearby rivers and parks are calling to you, spring or fall are good times for embracing outdoor recreation, thanks to the pleasant temperatures. Summer is a popular time for any activities along the water, so expect more crowds, despite the hot, humid weather. Winter can be cold, with occasional freezing temperatures and rounds of snow and ice.
