    Hey Mizzou,

    I'm traveling from MI down south and back in late April. The St. Louis area is a little over my 1/2 way point heading south.

    I've stayed at Babler previously but was wondering about Meramec and/or other choices (southern Indiana) you might recommend for an overnighter on my down & back. I'm the only human, traveling with my dogs (golden retrievers).

    Ideal world, Meramec is a little less than half-way for my return and I'd like to get to the other side of St. Louis for the remaining drive home. Thoughts are very much appreciated and thanks in advance!

    A few years back, we stayed at the KOA in Granite City Il, just northeast of St Louis. It was clean and quiet, and had a decent pool. It's located in a semi-industrial area. If you're looking for nature, this is probably not what you seek, but for a night or two, it worked out well for us.

    Thanks for the advice - may be perfect as it looks like it's close to the highway. THANK YOU!

    There's a municipal campground at Lake Lou Yaeger near Litchfield IL just off I-55.
