Park Visitor: Comments, Memories and Reviews
February 16 Take Better Care of Existing Parks by Mary Bernsen
Older State parks, like Sam A Baker and Meremac
are being woefully neglected so the State can spend a fortune on a new park - Echo Bluff, which is even further from the St. Louis area.
April 11 Best Kept Secret by Buschgang
My friends and I have been going to Sam A. twice a year for the last 20 years. There have been a greart many changes over the last ten years since Mike and Jody took over. Many of the Cabins have been re-modeled over the last couple of years and the
food and service have improved greatly in the Restaurant. It has become increasingly more difficult to get reservations over the last five years due to the Parks new found Popularity.
October 17 Not meeting possible potential. by gigifrey
This park should be a great park but falls short!It has a great biking trail, hiking trails, nice lay out of the sites. However,the camp host responsibilities fell short! They noticed right away that we didnt register but the bathrooms were so grossly dirty and unkept & the toilets did not flush good at all so maintenance was being neglected.. I had to press and hold down about 5 - 7 times for the same flush to go down. the noise ordinance was not upheld after 10pm. there was a alot of noise allowed until the early morning hours making sleep very difficult. Rowdy tenants were not dealt with.The hot & cold water controls in the showers were hooked up backwards because red was cold and blue was warm. SO much potential for this to be A-1 site but not making the mark.
August 11 Disapointed by Roy
We were very disapointed with our stay in July 2010. The bathroons were dirty and the showers were always cold, even if the park had only a few campers. There were cobwebs and spiders in every corner and the floor was muddy and slick. They told us it was because of cutbacks in funding, well we are still paying $20 a night!
October 29 Great place to gather by Kay
My husband and kids love the park for a number of reasons. The park is clean, safe, everyone is friendly and helpful. The water is great for swimming and fishing. I recommend Sam A Baker to everyone. Our friends and family love it.
June 8 Great Family Park
EXCELLENT biking path - paved and flat. Many access spots to Big Creek/St. Fracois River with crystal clear water. Kept very clean.
