Floating with friends is the BEST way to experience the Meramec River! Rent a canoe, kayak, or raft to float the river for two to four hours.
A scenic float trip down the beautiful Meramec River is an excellent way to explore the wonders of the “Show-Me” state’s wild outdoors. Steep limestone bluffs, caves, and bubbling springs envelope the intrepid explorer along a watery path of aquatic plants, animals, and forests. The Meramec is a Class I (sometimes II) river that is suitable for all levels of floating experience and expertise. Warning, always respect the river and areas around you, safety for yourself and others should be your top concern.
