Campgrounds near St Louis MO

Hi All,
We are planning a trip to St Louis MO this June towing the "mighty Jayco". We want to spend a few days in St Louis and then get going to Chicago via Route 66 for a few more days.

Thanks!

Ten years ago, when we wanted to stop in St Louis and visit the Gateway Arch, we camped here.

Casino Queen RV Park

Back then, it was nothing fancy- kind of like camping in a Walmart lot, but with full hookups. However, for our mission, it was great. The CG had a free shuttle that would take you to the casino or to the light rail station where you could ride across the river to the arch.

Later that evening, my wife and I came out of the casino about $114.00 to the good. We never got to keep the money, though, as the next day I had to buy two new batteries for our TV when it wouldn't start after stopping for lunch in Indianapolis.

We have stayed at Sundermeier RV Park in nearby St. Charles. The campground has full hookups, clean bathrooms, friendly staff, an upscale restaurant on site and a the Katy Trail bike path is adjacent. It does not have shady trees or a pretty location. It is close to downtown and the MO wine county. Kathy

We've stayed at Cahokia RV Parque a couple of times while visiting St. Louis. I would stay there again.

I need to find something that is "kid friendly" - where if we wanted to hang out at the campgrounds for a day, the kids would be busy.

Well we've settled up on the KOA outside of St Louis.

There is a Jellystone in Eureka, MO. It is very nice, a little pricey, but right next to Six Flags.

My boys are 11 and 15 so we thought that Jellystone wouldn't fit us anymore.

I should also mention that Meramec State Park is not far off I-44, which I imagine is your route of travel. It's about an hour west of St. Louis. It sits right on the Meramec River, which means your kids will have something to do at the park. They have some full hook-ups, some water/electric, but mostly electric. The State Park shower houses are always clean & well maintained.
