The Meramec Marina is a hidden gem in the St. Louis area. Its on the Meramec river near George Winter park on Highway 30 (Gravois).
One of the things that makes the marina so great is that we can paddle to it. From where I typically put in on the river, its a 4 mile paddle downriver. Of course, what would a marina be without beer and pizza. So when we visit, we get a beer and pizza to celebrate getting there. Its got a pretty laid back atmosphere. I think they’re always a little surprised to see a canoe pull up and tie off to stay for a bit.
There isn’t much about it online, so here are a few photos of it for you’re viewing pleasure.
