Camping near St Louis, MO?

Any suggestions about where I can stay in the rig somewhere very near Saint Louis? All replies gratefully received.

Check out the Casino Queen RV Resort...it is right across the river from St. Louis- with views of the Arch- and there is an elevated train station on the grounds. Park your rig, hop on the train, and go all over St. Louis. It is my very favorite city in the whole country, and I have been to 37 states.

We stayed in the Casino Queen a few years ago (my in-laws more recently) in our '62 Corvair van. The sites are basic- pads divided by small patches of lawn- few trees. We were sightseeing all day, so this did not matter. Wonderful staff and wonderful restrooms and amenities.

Thanks Ben but the web site says that it's closed for the season.


Shall I go by and take a chance?

I was in Babler a couple of days ago.. Wide open. There were maybe 5 or 6 spots taken. (Out of 20 or 30.)
It is a little out of the way as far as downtown St Louis is concerned, but if you are going to be in western St Louis, it's fine.

Sergei!

I am so disappointed that I am not in St. Louis while you are in town. Babler SP like McAir said is a really nice place to camp, should be plenty of room there for you. There are a few parks in Eureka, MO, but they are not as nice as the state park.

If you plan to take in sights over a few days check out Forrest Park (site of the 1904 Worlds fair), the free St Louis Zoo, Ted Drews Custard off Historic Route 66, the Art Museum, the Arch, the free tour at Anheuser Busch, or the St. Louis Science center.

Bill Thomas does have five RV sites, which are offered at no cost to their customers. Each site has 30 amp. service, and a sewer connection.......however, the water supply to those sites has been shut off for the winter.....water is available at the faucets along the side of the building. Insofar as Babler is concerned, be advised that the showerhouse, as well as the various water faucets throughout the campground have been shut down for the winter. Fresh water is usually available from the host's source on site #36. For maximum comfort and convenience (not to mention safety) in the STL area at this time of year, I recommend Sundermeier RV Park in St. Charles.

We stayed at St Louis RV Park over the summer. It's an in-town park and little more than a parking lot converted to an RV park with electric, water, and waste hook-ups. May have had cable connections as well, but we don't watch TV when "camping".

Friendly ladies who run it and we felt safe.

There's Pere Marquette State Park in Illinois, but that's 30-40 minutes from St. Louis - nice, though. There's Horseshoe Lake State Park, but it's a little sketchy and isolated. In Granite City, there's MGM campground. I've stayed there a couple of times while visiting family in the area. It's not fancy, but there are full hook ups and it's fine for a couple of days. The only problem is that it is frequently full, as contractors stay there while working in the area. There's also a KOA in Granite City. Not scenic, as it's located in between some truck repair places, but it's as close to St Louis as you can probably get.
If you stay at MGM or the KOA, you're on the original Rt 66 (chain o' rocks road)-check out the chain o' rocks bridge across the Mississippi which is only for bikes and pedestrians.
