With the ancient St. Francois Mountains, the unspoiled natural
landscape and the cool waters of the St. Francois River and Big Creek,
Sam A. Baker State Park has something for everyone. Whether getting
away for a day of relaxation or spending considerably more time
exploring the region, it's certainly worth the trip.
The equestrian campground offers basic and electric campsites and a vault toilet. This campground is closed December through February.
Trail has three entrance points. The hiking-only trailhead is located
on the west side of Highway 143 across the road from the dining lodge.
The remaining trailheads are located in the equestrian camp. Equestrian
campers can access the trail in camping area #1. The equestrian
trailhead for day users only is located just north of the assistant
superintendent’s residence. Parking areas and water are available at
all trailheads. During the winter months, when most of the water lines
are shut off, water can be obtained at the park office. While on the
trail, water from Mudlick and Logan creeks may be used, but it should
always be treated before consumption.
