Good location for St. Louis and Cahokia Mounds State Park. You do have to be alert for the correct route to the campground. As you approach Casino Queen, there is a red sign with yellow lettering "RV PARK MINI MART NOW OPEN" with an arrow indicating a left turn prior to the main entrance to the casino. Looking left however gives a view of a locked gate. The road turns left before the gate but it's hard to see before you actually make the turn, as we found out later. Instead we turned into the main Casino entrance. That is no problem, there is plenty of room to maneuver, and a security van came right over and escorted us to the RV park. Security vans also took us to the casino where we had a good dinner one evening, and to the metro station for easy access to St. Louis. Ask for their number when you check in. Trains run along one side of the park all day. Two nights we heard none, the third night we were woken twice by train horns. Overall the best choice for the area.

Clean bathrooms and laundry room, nice swimming pool with under roof game room. Clean and ample inside facilities for get-togethers. Several sites have gazebos for family groups. Paved and gravel sites, both level and spaceous. Great overnight stop on I-95 or longer term base for the area. Friendly people. Only drawbacks are marginal WiFi (email fine, streaming poor) and limited cable TV lineup. Wide open for satellite reception. I stay here every year visiting family.

Date of Stay:

We were in Site 6 which fit our 32 ft RV plus pick up with not one inch to spare. It was across from the office so all the park traffic passes by. Off season it was very quiet except for the weekend when the park filled up with families with kids. We had no cell phone or air card coverage here so we used the park's WiFi which we could access from our site. It was free. After a rain, the interior roads have standing water in many places. The picnic tables are covered (open sided roof) but it was on a dirt so it was very muddy when wet. The park is in a good location for access to Cherokee and the National Park. They have a decently stocked store on site, a nice indoor pool plus many other amenities that would appeal to children. All the RV spots are paved, plus there are grass spots for tents and quite a few rental cabins.

Date of Stay:

Two shaded loops each have a central bath house. They are unheated which makes for some nippy showers on cold winter days, but plenty of hot water and always clean. Plenty of shade but room enough in almost spaces for our 33' fifth wheel and truck. The trees impact satellite reception in many sites, so we had to put our cube on top of the RV. We had good cell phone reception. The park is about 10 miles from most shopping, and it's a bit of a drive to the coast through a lot of city. Very quiet even though full every weekend.

Wi-Fi service spotty and slow but usable at my site. Nice clean campground with clean laundry and bath facilities. Big rig friendly. Convenient location with nearby shopping for food, restaurants, home improvement center, etc. Fairly quiet location short distance off major roads.

Easy on and off I-95 on the north side of Jacksonville. A very large park with sites suitable for large rigs. We were placed near the front where most short-term and better-looking rigs were. (There were some RVs in very poor condition near the rear of the property.) The site was paved and level. Staff was pleasant and efficient. We had our propane refilled there and did a load of laundry. One long term resident complained the the 4 washers and 4 dryers were not sufficient for a park of that size, and I'd agree. Bathrooms were clean and in good shape. We did notice the jet aircraft noise overhead until about 10 pm and starting again at 8 am.

It is a nice little park tucked into a triangle of land between FL281 and the Indian Bayou. A wide paved road loops through the middle of the 27 sites, all of which are either back-in or pull-in. Suitable for big rigs; the sites were wide and some were quite deep. There is no vegetation between sites. The few extra dollars for a river front site was worth it; the view was beautiful. The laundry room had three washers and dryers and a folding counter. The clubhouse was next to it in the same building, adjacent to a small pool. The wifi was pretty good and the cable had 30 channels. It is pet friendly, but there is limited room to walk the dog due to the small size of the property.

This is a nice little park just off the interstate and next door to a travel plaza. We had truck trouble and they were very accommodating, as we had to drop the fifth wheel trailer for a few days. Our gravel site was level and roomy and we had full hook-ups. Also included was Wi-Fi and a 26 channel cable TV lineup which included 6 HBO channels. We noticed the police patrolled through the park on a regular basis. People in the office were both friendly and helpful. Not a lot in this area, but I’d recommend it as a good overnight stop for I-10 travelers.

This park is suitable for big rigs, with double wide paved interior roads, roomy paved pull-throughs and no vegetation to contend with. We booked one of the slightly cheaper back-in sites that lined one edge. All sites were level and they were hosed down after each departure. They advertise a heated pool, but it is not heated in the winter months: November through March. There is a hot tub under cover. The office has a small store and DVD rentals for a dollar. Next to it is a modest library room with a book exchange and computer desks, and next to that a gym with three treadmills, free weights and one of those all-in-one exercise machines. The laundry room was nice, with 6 washers and dryers, change machine, iron and board and large folding area. The bathrooms were the nicest I’ve seen anywhere, worthy of the label “resort” and spotless. The Wi-Fi was excellent and consistently fast. One drawback for big rigs is the turn from Rayford onto Geneva, which goes through a residential neighborhood. If someone is sitting at the light on Geneva, it is a bit tight to make the turn because there’s no room to swing wide enough to keep the rear wheels on the pavement. The neighborhood streets are paved though bumpy, and watch out for dogs on the road. The only other negative, noticeable because we were near the front of the RV park, was that the owners have birds: parrots, conures, etc., that screech and make a racket from their cages set out on the patio behind the office/clubhouse. They are brought in at night. Then the park is very quiet with only the sound of an occasional train in the distance. There was a small, fenced dog park at the back corner and one border of the park is designated a pet walk area. They provide pick-up stations and have a snitch policy where if you do not pick up after the pet and someone reports it, they get a free night and you get kicked out of the park. As a result, this is the only park I’ve been in where I never had to step over other people’s pet droppings when picking up my own. They have a security patrol and rules are strictly enforced. That said, all the employees we came in contact with were friendly and professional.

The park office was open until 10 pm, which was convenient for late-arrivals. I was in the smaller back loop, along the river. This was advantageous because there were fewer campers sharing the bath house. It was also fairly open and is a good area for big rigs (sites 61-84). The bath house was climate-controlled, clean and overall very nice. There was one washer and one dryer there. Sites had a fairly level pad just wide enough to park the RV on, which was necessary because of the wet conditions. Otherwise the ground was very saturated which made for muddy walking with the dog. There were boardwalks through a swamp and along the river, as well as a dock, boat ramp and boat slips.

The name of this resort is now "Dunedin RV Resort & The Blue Moon Inn". We couldn't have picked a better location to access most areas of the Tampa Bay. Near the state parks at Honeymoon Island and Caledesi as well as shopping, dining and golf. There were many seasonal residents and it was set up pretty well for big rigs however we had a back-in site that was a tight fit for both our RV and tow vehicle. The pull-throughs looked roomier. Cable TV was available only to seasonal residents and water pressure was weak. Wi-Fi was pretty slow. The park also had a decent laundry room. We were given a calendar of outings, classes and other activities when we checked in. There were shuffleboard courts and a heated pool. We were on a concrete slab and noticed no bug problems, perhaps because it was mostly very cold during our January stay. The maintenance staff was always in evidence and kept the place spotless.

This is a beautiful park with spacious, private sites. We had a nice shady site with the only caveat being we had to take care backing in because of overhead branches. Our site was sandy and level. The staff at the office were helpful and had lots of information on things to do in the area including the best laundromats and where to shop. Although the park was full the bath houses, located in the center of each loop, were never busy and were clean. We had cellular service there even though we were nine miles off the interstate.

Date of Stay:

We stopped here for an overnight. Easy access to I-10, one mile off the interstate but very quiet. Lots of trees, but plenty of room on roads and sites. There were 5 tent sites, 5 rental cabins and 46 pull-throughs. Some were 30 amp plus water, others were 50 amp plus water and sewer. Wi-Fi was generally good though slow at times. There is a laundry room with 4 washers and three dryers. It and the bathrooms were well kept. There is a store and small restaurant on site, as well as DVD rentals for $1 and a book exchange.

Date of Stay:

We stayed in the Coquina loop: the sites are sandy and well shaded. There were lots of Live-oaks hung with Spanish moss. We had to watch out for the numerous tree trunks and overhanging branches when backing in our fifth-wheel, but the site was roomy and had enough length and width to easily accommodate the RV and pick-up. There was never a wait at the three-lane dump station. The bath house was conveniently located in the center of the loop. It tended to be sandy but it was cleaned on a regular basis. Three stalls and showers (one handicap accessible) plus several sinks were basic but sufficient. There were also two washers and dryers and a laundry sink outside the bath house. They had recycling bins next to the dumpster just outside the loop. The camp store had some limited supplies, a Wi-Fi area and a book exchange.

We stopped here for one night. This park was located an easy 7 miles off I-95. The office staff was very friendly, recommended a good restaurant for dinner (Georgio’s, Hwy 78) and led us to our site. The Wi-Fi was very weak and Verizon was intermittent, so we were able to pick up our e-mail but could not use the internet otherwise. The small laundry room had two washers and two dryers, was clean, and had a clothes rack, folding table, soap dispenser and comfortable seating. Our pull-through sandy site was fairly level, roomy, and had a picnic table on an adjacent slab.
