St Louis, MO campground recommendation

Planning on spending one night in the St Louis area on our way from Milwaukee to Albuquerque. Any thoughts on either "St Louis RV Park" downtown St Louis or "Cahokia RV Park" East St Louis, IL
Any other recommendations would be helpful.

St Louis, MO campground recommendation

Greetings Tim!

While I don't often stay in the St. Louis area, but when I do I am usually headed west and have found the St. Louis West/Historic Route 66 KOA to be may favored location. It is located in Eureka, MO one of the nearby St. Louis Suburbs.

I have also stayed at the Casino Queen RV park in East. St. Louis, IL when camping with friends. While much has improved over the past 30 years, it can still be a little dangerous to travel East St. Louis surface streets at night so I plan on being in my rig before dark when staying there.

There are many RV parks on the outskirts of the city, but plan on higher rates when you get closer to the the theme parks.

Good luck with your investigation!

My daughter has a condo above the Sheraton, so we stay at the Downtown St Louis RV park to be close by. It is a bare square block with sites packed close together, but the folks that run it are really nice. If you want to visit the arch, Forest Park, and other attractions, it is perfect. Not in a real nice part of town, but I have stayed there for years with no problems.

There are not many choices for camping in actual Down Town STL. I agree with Kevin, and have stayed at the Route 66 KOA before. There is also a Jellystone Park nearby, but the KOA is the best "deal".

Hi - I love Babler State Park in West St. Louis county - it's probably 30 to 45 mins from downtown. Only electric hook ups though but nice place and very safe. If you really need full hook ups try Sundermeier RV park in St. Charles. They are friendly there - and it's a good location.

Stop a little short of St Louis in Alton, Illinois...take the scenic Great River Road along the Mississippi River to Grafton about 20 mins up the road, and camp at Pere Marquette State Park

I'll second the vote for Sundermeier RV Park in St Charles, if it fit's your travel route. Have stayed there and would recommend it.
