Pulled in a heavy rain storm and expected the sites to be flooded, but the drainage was great and within minutes of the rain stopping the sites were left with no standing water. Many sites are occupied by workers staying for long term, but it was not any issues with the folks that come in for a few days and then leave. The roadway outside the park is busy and there is road noise, If you stay in the park you get a discount card to use at the on site restaurant, we didn't use on this visit. People inside the park said it was very good. Roads are asphalt and sites are gravel and for the most part level. Easy commute to down town St. Louis and appears to be a safe location. We camped at Cahokia RV Parque in a Motorhome.

Stayed for a week, not a resort campground but good for what it is. Sites are back-in, gravel, level with good hook-ups. The roads are wide enough to navigate. There are some long term residents, but we noticed plenty of folks just stopping overnight too. There is a bit of road noise and an occasional train. The wifi worked ok, no cable, the pool was clean. There is no campstore, but there is a small area in the office with a tv and table where you can sit and a small laundry room off from the office. The office was not well attended but there is a posted number you can call that was answered right away. There is a good BBQ restaurant right on site where campers can get 10% off meals. Grocery store is not too far in Cahokia. The campground is convenient to downtown St Louis. If you don't want to drive into the city you can drive about 2mi to East Riverfront metro station near Queen Casino, park for free and get a day ticket or round trip ticket. We did this and did not feel like it was unsafe. In fact no one even checks if you bought a ticket. We thought this campground was fine for our needs. We camped at Cahokia RV Parque in a Fifth Wheel.

Just a note about this park regarding pull-thru sites. They technically do not have pull-thrus. All the sites are 1/2 of the 90' pull-thru. You can treat it like a pull-thru when pulling in but you really only have half of the 90'. If you want or need more than 45' you'll need to pay for two sites. Needless to say our 45' coach with a bike rack would not fit plus we would have no room for the tow. We camped at Cahokia RV Parque in a Motorhome.

This is a great base camp to tour St. Louis area. Close to I 255. Paved interior roads with easy in and out from SR 3. Level gravel sites, good power and water. Great value very close to St. Louis. We camped at Cahokia RV Parque in a Motorhome.

Stayed 3 nights to visit friends in St Louis. Very few nearby CG's. Friendly staff and owner (Ben) and very good restaurant. Only a short drive to St Louis via interstate. A bit of standing water and puddles when it rains. Only 30 Amp was available when we were there. Very good WiFi. Did I mention the friendly staff? We camped at Cahokia RV Parque in a Motorhome.

Tour St. Louis. The arch area is under construction and many streets are blocked off plus the lower roads along the river are flooded. The tram ride to the top is operating but the museum is closed.

Fairly easy access and friendly, courteous staff. This CG is way over priced. My Electrical Management System initially would not connect because of an intermittent open ground in the system, big problem. CG staff checked it? and said it was connected. There was consistent low voltage in the CG and the ground problem. My EMS worked overtime, on and off, to prevent damage to onboard equipment. When lawn mower did my site he broke my sewer hose support and didn't mention it to anyone. The morning we left the Electrical Utility company was working on the power supply into the campground. Sites are gravel, interior roads gravel, grass between, roughly half the sites are pull-thru unless there is an RV in the site already, then it becomes back-in, taillight to taillight, share with the other rig. Most sites have concrete patios and parking space for toad or tow vehicle is limited. Laundry is clean but expensive, $5 to wash and dry a load. The biggest problem is the power. We likely would not return to the campground. We camped at Cahokia RV Parque in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

St. Louis offers the Gateway Arch complex including the Historic Courthouse. Lots of construction in the area of the complex, completion in apx 2017. See U.S. Grant Visitor Center and White Haven. Try to purchase fuel in Missouri, not Illinois.

What a shame this little campground doesn't have some TLC plus some hard work. It has a good location even if it is on a truck route. When I came in to register, office staff didn't bother to look up or acknowledge me. When she got off the phone, she left the desk to do some paperwork, Then waited on me. There was plenty of time to notice the unpleasant smell in the office while she tried to decide how to get me to my site. My back-in site was not mowed, the picnic table was rusted, and no sign of any maintenance/upkeep going on. Long term sites were junky and several sites looked uninhabitable due to open, broken electrical posts and mud puddles. When we had no water one morning, there was no notice from the office and they had no information on when we would have water again. We camped at Cahokia RV Parque in a Motorhome.

Park staff was very nice and friendly. Campsite had a grassy area with a picnic table. Restrooms and showers were exceptionally clean. Laundry room was very small and tight. Antenna TV reception was OK. LP gas is available in park. Sawmill restaurant is adjacent to the park and serves good food. The only downside is road and train noise throughout the night. We had two RVs; one was a motorhome. We camped at Cahokia RV Parque in a Fifth Wheel.

Convenient for visiting the St Louis attractions and the Cahokia Indian Mounds. Adequately maintained for an old park. Only 50 amp spaces are on the row closest to the highway intersection. Noise made by big trucks stopping and starting at the traffic light is severe but this is fairly typical of urban campgrounds. Be prepared with earplugs. If 30 amps will work ask for a space further away from the road. Good antenna TV reception. Double pull-through spaces mean you have to back in if someone is in the other half. For fifth wheels with rear windows the view is of the back end of another RV just a few feet away. This is a good place to stay for visiting the area but not one to go to for days of peace and quiet. Will stay here again when in the area. We camped at Cahokia RV Parque in a Fifth Wheel.

Typical urban GS park that is showing its age. Main and site roads paved with long and wide level gravel sites. Many of the sites have trees and half with no trees for satellite signal. Park well maintained. Password protected wi-fi signal, good TV antenna signals, no cable, concrete patios and FHU. No rec room, has a pool and a small kids playground. On major road so some noise and some train noise. Office staff friendly and helpful. Park 5 miles to downtown St Louis. No social activities, but the on-site B-B-Q restaurant is great. Would stay there again. We camped at Cahokia RV Parque in a Fifth Wheel.

This park is located on a very busy main road and intersects with another busy main road. This was a "planes, trains and automobiles" location. The site was rather tight and barely enough room to park our truck after disconnecting from our 5th wheel but rather level. We normally stay at another campground in the area but they were closed for the season. Staff was very friendly. We camped at Cahokia RV Parque in a Fifth Wheel.

This park was very close to St. Louis Attractions, even though we crossed the river to get to it. It is located in an industrial area, but it didn't pose a problem. Sites were level gravel and decent sized. We used our own 'hotspot' for internet connections. Cell Phone service was adequate. There are some permanent residents but they were in another area of the park. They also have about 4 small rental cabins. There is a restaurant on the premises which is pretty good. The staff was friendly and helpful. We stayed an extra day to do more sightseeing. While not a destination spot or very glamorous... we would stay here again.

Paid Good Sam rate of $29.70 for a 30 amp full hook-up pull thru. Most of the pull thrus are double sites, so someone could back in behind you. Office staff was very good as we were drive ups. The site hookups are not the best, water is way forward near the road on a wooden post, this makes for a good scent post for dogs. I saw 3 different dogs water the post in less than an hour. The electric is mid-site and the sewer is where it should be. We did not bother with water or sewer, but we needed the full length of our electric cord to reach the pedestal. We came in just for a night to visit the Arch which is a must see if in this area. TV via batwing and Verizon cell and broadband were very good. We camped at Cahokia RV Parque in a Motorhome.

This park has level gravel sites and the hookups worked properly. The Wi-Fi in the office and at the back of the park where seasonals were parked works well. I could not receive a signal at our campsite. We were told to expect this up front. However, I was able to sit on the restaurant patio and office porch to use their free signal. There were a few mosquitoes at dusk, but then they went away as it became dark. The Bbq restaurant next door was good. The showers/bathrooms were clean. The only negative were the road and railroad noise throughout the night. The park is on a busy road, so take this into consideration. We would stay here again. We camped at Cahokia RV Parque in a Motorhome.
