Located less than one hour from St. Louis!

We offer two float trips at Old Cove Canoe both start upstream and float back to your car. the long float is 9 miles, takes minimum 5-6 hours and you need to get started before 11:00 A.M. The short float is 4.5 miles, is 2-3 hours minimum and lets you get a late start in the day. We have plenty of gravel bars and bluffs to enjoy on both float trips. Our stretch of the Meramec is all stream, creek, and spring fed.

Group and private party camping only.

For all other lodging arrangements consider Pin Oak Creek RV Park or Budget Lodging.
