RVers passing through the Gateway City will find abundant floating and hiking outside of town.
Four interstates meet in St. Louis—44, 64, 55, and 70—providing easy RV access from all directions to nearby camping and outdoor attractions. The Mississippi River and Gateway Arch are STL's notable attractions, but smaller waterways south of the city, like the Meramec River, Big River, and Huzzah River, offer canoeing, fishing, and float trips. Also on the Meramec River, Onondaga Cave State Park is known for its cave, which you can tour. Mark Twain National Forest sits southwest of the city and features hiking trails and campgrounds, while north of the city, Cuivre River State Park has hiking and horseback-riding trails plus a lake for swimming. Even more hiking and camping can be found at St. Francois State Park, south of the city. There are a few RV parks in the city outskirts, but you’ll have much nicer settings in the state parks and other woodsier RV campgrounds along the rivers.
