Missouri Parks Visitor Reviews
5/2/2017 2:22:06 PM Ha Ha Tonka State Park by Ragged Mouse
Best Autum Park to see - I love this park in the Autumn my son took his other dad and I here when he was 15 years old and started working there when in high school. When in college he work there and now is the naturalist here. Still the greatest autumn park ever.

Take Better Care of Existing Parks - Older State parks, like Sam A Baker and Meremac are being woefully neglected so the State can spend a fortune on a new park - Echo Bluff, which is even further from the St. Louis area.

Awesome park!!! - Have camped St. Francois for over 30 years. Grass is always cut, no bugs to speak of; lots of shade; shower house is always clean. Lots of kids to play with our grand kids. Its a must and right out of St. Louis.

Family favorite! - Many great family photos taken there most every summer. We seem to see something new each summer. Quiet, clean, historical and. Relaxing!
7/12/2013 9:15:28 AM Battle of Athens State Historic Site by Darryl Eschete
Secluded, Shady, Historical - My two kids and I camped here the weekend after July 4th, and it was lovely. The campground is very secluded, very shady and there is a healthy supply of free firewood. The ruins of Athens are fascinating and well-kept and the cannonball house is amazingly well-preserved. We also took a day trip to nearby Nauvoo, Illinois to see the Joseph Smith historical site. I plan to go back and highly recommend it.
6/23/2013 2:22:04 AM Dr. Edmund A. Babler Memorial State Park by Grateful2Missouri
Moments of Reflection - This is like going home for me. My father was in the CCC corps and worked on many bridges and roads in the area. Went into the Army during WWII for 4.5 years in the tank corp & returned to Jefferson Barracks where we lived until shut down. Many of days we would come out to Babler just to get out.

Truly wheelchair accessible - One of my children uses a wheelchair for mobility while another is an avid hiker. This park was perfect for my family as not only is the main trail wheelchair accessible, it provides enough interest for everyone so we could enjoy it together. Awesome park! Thank you MO
