Does anyone know if Ft. Belle Fontaine, a St. Louis County Park on the MO River, has river access to pull in from the river? Seems like they would but don't see it on the park website or map. Thinking about padding from St. Charles to there if it's possible to pull in & be picked up by a vehicle there. Post here if you know & thanks in advance for the more experienced / informed (which is most everyone else Grin!).

It's a 2mile walk from the river to where you park. Motor vehicles are not allowed on the road/trail. It's a very cool, rarely used park.

Thanks, Killer. Did Weldon Springs to Blanchette Landing yesterday. Belle Fontaine looks great but that would be beyond my portage distance!

For what it's worth, there is a boat ramp at Sioux Passage County Park about three miles upstream of Bellefontaine.
