Come see why Steelville, MO has been dubbed the "Missouri floating capital". We feature a wide variety of floating services on Missouri's beautiful Upper Meramec River.
Our float trips range from 3 to 21 miles. Our two main float trips are (1) our most popular 6-mile float trip, and (2) our short 3-mile float trip.

You won't be carrying your canoe, raft or kayak over shallows here on the spring fed upper Meramec River.
