Missouri Parks Visitor Reviews
4/5/2021 1:41:18 AM Alley Spring and Mill by Joseph_L_S
Great park - Alley spring is a great historic site. Ive been here numerous times. My wife and I visited the mill on 4/3/21. The bridge going from the handicapped parking lot, to the mill needs a board replaced. Its the board nearest the parking lot. Its decayed. My wife stubbed her toe on the rotted board, and fell. We just want to make sure that other guests dont make the same mistake. Thanks again for maintaining our state treasures

Crowder Beach is open - My wife and I swam at the beach. The entry is free from rocks and has a sloped sandy bottom. Water was both warm and cool in places. One remembers a broader beach when we was younger. We saw kayakers on the lake. No life guards. No swim buoys, no perimeter marked. We enjoyed being in the water. Thanks.

Coakley Hollow Fen not well maintained - The young man on duty did not know where the trail to the trail to Coakley Hollow Fen started. I asked him for a booklet about the self-guided interpretive trail. He eventually found one. It was well done but the numbers in the booklet for the points of interest were not on the placards posted at each stop. Useless The boards of the boardwalks were rotting and not maintained. Dangerous The fen itself was very small and unremarkable. Disapointing Ticks were abundent. So, be aware of tick-borne disease symptoms. Risk-reward questionable

Nice range and clay pit fishing - Nice shooting range up to 100 yards. Bring a canoe or kayak and you can even catch some bass in the clay pit.

Best Autum Park to see - I love this park in the Autumn my son took his other dad and I here when he was 15 years old and started working there when in high school. When in college he work there and now is the naturalist here. Still the greatest autumn park ever.

Take Better Care of Existing Parks - 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.

USE TO WORK THERE - I use to work there as a maintenance worker and I enjoyed it. I had worked on a program that was like seasonal. I got to meet a lot of people there. I am from here and have been all my life.

Awesome park!!! - Have camped St. Francois for over 30 years. Grass is always cut, no bugs to speak of; lots of shade; shower house is always clean. Lots of kids to play with our grand kids. Its a must and right out of St. Louis.
