Dr. Edmund A. Babler Memorial State Park

Park Information

While parks and historic sites are open for day-use, capacity will be monitored closely in order to prevent overcrowding. If nearing capacity, parking lots may close temporarily. Missouri State Parks has implemented a number of measures designed to maintain required social distancing and protect visitors, volunteers and staff. The latest information from Missouri State Parks on COVID-19 can be found here. A full list of temporary closures can be found here.

Generations of Missourians have passed through Dr. Edmund A. Babler Memorial State Park's massive stone gateway for cookouts and family get-togethers or to spend time with friends. The park’s camping facilities, Civilian Conservation Corps architecture, and hiking, bicycling and equestrian trails help all visitors find their place to get away from it all, just minutes from St. Louis.
