Discover Emmenegger Nature Park, IL


Emmenegger Nature Park is a nature preserve and public recreation area near Valley Park, Missouri. It is bordered along its western perimeter by the Meramec River and to the south by Possum Woods Conservation Area. In the past, the property was owned by a family who also owned and operated a brewery. Its varied uses included a tennis club, a public swimming pool, and a riverside resort; it was also used for breeding exotic animals for the St. Louis Zoo. The land was purchased in the 1970s by a private citizen who donated part of the estate to the city of Kirkwood; the property is managed by the city and the Missouri Department of Conservation.

The geography of the area varies between valleys bordering the Meramec River and higher ridges. The ridge areas have tree stands that include several varieties of oak and sugar maple, to name a few; the valleys have tree stands that include different oak species, silver maple, and elm. The park is open to the public from dawn to dusk, and RV camping near Emmenegger Nature Park is your first step in experiencing the park's tranquility for yourself.

While you are here, you can enjoy hiking the many trails that permeate the area; for added entertainment, take time to observe the plant species and wildlife that call the park home. If you're a photographer, you'll appreciate the natural scenery and abundant sunlight. Dogs are allowed on the trails on a leash, and you can picnic in designated areas to make the most of your visit. Fishing is allowed in the Meramec River, and if you park your RV rental nearby, you can take your catch straight from the water to your fridge.

Slightly farther out, there are other attractions you can visit while you're here. There are numerous other parks with their own distinct beauty not far away as well as a designated dog park, in case you brought your furry friend with you. Camping near Emmenegger Nature Park will put you a short distance away from several golf courses and from a sculpture park with exhibitions and the occasional music concert.

There is a botanical garden close to the city of St. Louis, where you can stroll through the grounds, enjoying the landscaping before entering the garden's structures; these include a glass-domed greenhouse, a butterfly garden, and a Victorian home.

While you're RV camping near St. Louis, take a moment to check out Ballwin, a relatively large city with several urban parks and trails where you can go hiking and biking.

There are city tours you can take, and one of them is conducted on Segways; if you're a thrill-seeker, there is a firing range you can check out and another target range for ax throwing. Ballwin has a dynamic restaurant scene with venues ranging from inexpensive to fine dining and some that specialize in breakfast. The selection of cuisines ranges from American comfort food to specialty items like frogs legs, so there should be something here for everyone.

What are RV rentals?

Renting an RV lets you enjoy the flexibility of RV travel without all the costs and maintenance of ownership.

Are RV rentals pet-friendly?

Many RV owners allow pets in their rentals. Be sure to check the listing to see if it’s an option for the rig you have your eye on. You’ll be able to see if there is an extra deposit or fee for pets before you request a booking.
