Attraction details
Owner description: It only takes a few minutes to fall in love with Sam A. Baker State Park. The cool waters of the St. Francois River and Big Creek frame a wooded setting with trails that range from easy to challenging. Ancient mountains, towering trees, and fresh air are hallmarks of the park. Rustic cabins, a campground, a separate campground for equestrians, and a store are also features of this scenic park.

The park is very well maintained. The scenery is beautiful with many deer around,It is a very peacefull place to visit and relax. The restrooms are in great shape and kept clean. You are also close to a town for any shopping you may need to do.

Where do I begin with this place. I love it! I have been going to Sam A. regularly since I was born so about 30 years (now I bring my kids) and my whole family has been going much longer. It is hard to not love this park!! It is beautiful and clean and well taken care of. Wether you want to do the long mudlick hiking trail to mulick hollow, fish, float, or swim in the clean clear water you will not be disappointed! Absolutley beautiful! I have tent camped mostly but also stay in the smallest to the biggest cabins. They have everything you would need or could expect out of a cabin. If you forget something you can get just about anything at the little on site store. As someone else mentioned bring your water shoes and a love for the outdoors and that's all you will need for a good time

Sam A Baker is a top state park in Missouri. It has numerous activitys for just about everyone in your family. The campgrounds are all well taken care of with plenty of space for any RV or tent. The shower house and bath rooms are very nice and clean. The activitys include fishing in Big Creek located just a stones throw from the campgroung of floating the St. Francious River located in the park. If hiking and biking are your ideal trip it has 2 hiking trails that are packed full of great views and shut-ins. There is a park store with just about anything you can imagine or forgot. I have visited this park numerous times and it has never disapointed me.

Plenty of places to splash in the water. There are good hiking trails and nice camping spots. It is a great place to ride bikes. I really like everything about this park.
