Dr. Edmund A. Babler Memorial State Park, Wildwood, MO

We camped at Babler State Park while visiting St. Louis. The camping was good and we enjoyed our few days there. For eclipse viewing please note that it is heavily wooded except for a large field near the entrance, which would make a decent place to observe the eclipse. Totality lasts 1 minute 53 seconds at the field.
