Steelville, Missouri — the “Home of Hospitality”, “Floating Capital of Missouri” and “Gateway to the Ozarks” — These are just some of the phrases that describe the beautiful community of Steelville. Located approximately 8 miles south of Interstate 44 in the foothills of the Ozarks in Crawford County, Steelville is truly the small town with a big heart.
Three spring-fed-rivers, the Meramec, Huzzah and Courtois provide floating, rafting, and camping recreation for thousands of tourists each year. Fishing enthusiasts flock to streams filled with small and large mouthed bass, trophy trout and rock bass.
Steelville is also home to the Meramec Music Theatre, which features the best in country music and golden oldies, as well as many special performances throughout the year. Also providing great music throughout the season is Wildwood Springs Lodge, which features various well known artists.
Quaint specialty shops line the town’s main street, which has been restored to its early 1900′s appearance. There, you will discover antique furniture, collectibles, wood carvings, pottery, and locally made crafts. Relax at an old-fashioned soda fountain or dine in at one of our friendly restaurants. Stay at a bed and breakfast, at a lodge that reflects its 1920′s glory, a modern hotel, or at one of the many resorts that provide camping, cabins and RV hookups.
