Historic Upper Meramec riverfront family campground offering kayak, canoe, and raft float trips, RV and tent camping, rustic motel and cabins, and group packages. For decades Indian Springs has been a gathering place for families to enjoy the clear gentle waters of the spring-fed Upper Meramec River in a picturesque niche of the Ozark foothills.
Located 1.5 hours from St. Louis and two hours from Springfield, Missouri, Indian Springs is close enough to I-44 for convenience, yet takes you "away enough" to experience the beautiful sounds of nature by the river.
Floating and lodging are discounted on weekdays.
The rustic motel and cabins can accommodate 2-10 guests, with access to outdoor grills and picnic tables. The caretaker's house with a full kitchen is available for 11 guests. The cabins and caretaker's house have screened porches. All lodging includes bedding and towels, and is within walking distance of the river.
The campground and shower house are by the river, with tent and RV sites having the option of water and electricity.
Float trips are less than seven miles, and float you back to Indian Springs. Young guests also enjoy playing in the creek that runs through the campground.
Meal packages can be arranged by prior reservation for groups in the dining hall.
All guests have access to the swimming pool, playground, horseshoes, and volleyball.
Our goal is to give guests a memorable outdoor adventure in a family-friendly environment that they will want to repeat for generations.
