A good option for the Meramec would be to camp at Maramec Springs. Great secluded campground, lots to do. Catch and keep trout fishing in the spring branch, historical ruins and close to St. James for non-campers. Also close to I-44 for out of staters. Good access points for 10-15 mile floats both above and below the spring.
Not quite as sporty, but really under-rated stretches, IMO.
