St. Francois State Park will be completely closed to the public Dec. 1-4, 2022, due to a managed deer hunt at the park.
The forested ridges and cool hollows of St. Francois State Park offer visitors a retreat from everyday life. Three hiking trails, including one that allows equestrian access, wind through the wooded hills and glades of the Coonville Creek Wild Area. Easy access to the Big River makes St. Francois State Park ideal for canoeing and floating, and the many shaded picnic sites and two covered shelters make the park perfect for family gatherings. Overnight guests can choose from more than 100 campsites, located in campgrounds with modern restrooms, hot showers and laundry facilities.
