Robertsville State Park

900 State Park Drive
Robertsville, MO 63072


The Meramec River and Calvey Creek bound Roberstville State Park, creating unlimited outdoor opportunities. Boat launches and easy water access make fishing and boating along the peaceful Meramec easy. The park's landscape includes scenic bluffs along the river, and a patchwork of hardwood forests, rich river bottomlands, and clearings that date to when the park was a working farm in the early 1900s. Waterfowl lovers love Robertsville for the diversity of birds that use the park’s waters, and families love Robertsville’s quiet campground and picnic areas.


Smallmouth bass, bluegill and crappie are the primary fish in the Meramec River. The park offers approximately two miles of river bank access for those without watercraft.


Access the Meramec River via a a single-lane boat launch located at the day-use area. It is open from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. during the on-season and from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. during the off-season. Boaters are cautioned to check river and ramp conditions before attempting to launch.

Overnight camping is not permitted in this area. Due to the high volume of boat traffic, swimming is prohibited.
