Labadie is a mostly residential community in Franklin County. It is a location that has existed since the early 1800s. The historic site is now the destination for some upscale homebuilding. The community relies on its closeby larger neighbors for the majority of its needs. No veterinary clinic operates in Labadie. People with pups with routine or emergency care needs only have to drive a distance of around ten miles to find veterinary services. Specialists of every kind are just a half-hour drive away in Saint Louis County.
Unfurtunately, Labadie does not have any parks. Klondike Park in Augusta is less than twenty miles away. This 250-acre St. Charles County Park encompasses a former quarry. It now serves as a place where people can camp, fish, and hike. The campground includes eight rental cabins and forty-three campsites. Your furry companion may enjoy the experience with you but must stay on-leash. Trails extend some four miles in Klondike. The trails have a mixture of paved and natural terrain. The highlight of the hiking experience is the breathtaking views from the bluffs of the Missouri River. Also, Klondike provides an access point for hikers wishing to explore a portion of the 240-mile Katy Trail. The trailhead, complete with parking and restrooms, can be found in the southern area of Klondike in Augusta.
