We spent 5 days in this park which has a great location for touring St. Louis. The hookups were good. The staff is friendly. The sites are pretty close together and most of the residents are working in the area so the park is very quiet during the days. Some sites were messy. But none of this was a problem because the location is so good. We camped at Cahokia RV Parque in a Travel Trailer.
The on-site Sawmill BBQ restaurant served a good brisket dinner. They are busy at noon.

The location of Cahokia RV Parque is great for going into St. Louis; Gateway Arch is visible from a distance. The owner and hosts are very nice and helpful. There is a restaurant on site that has a good reputation, but we did not eat there. The pool was covered because it was not open yet for the season, however it appeared to be a good size and had a nice concrete patio. Bathrooms are very clean and spacious. Laundry was cramped; offers 2 front load washers and 4 dryers and as a convenience propane is sold on location. There is a pavilion that crosses over a pond, but the pond is almost dry. The roads are asphalt and the sites are gravel with a little grass and there is a concrete patio and wooden picnic tables at each site. The utilities were in good working order. However, overall the park itself is filled with permanent residents and some of the trailers are junk. The sites are very close together; our back end was about 8 ft. from the back end of our neighbors. Side to side we had about 20 ft between trailers. Our site was a back in and was rather difficult to get into because of the lack of space both on the site and because trucks all along the road had to parallel park. This park is nothing to write home about, but is good for a one or two night stay. We camped at Cahokia RV Parque in a Fifth Wheel.

Acceptable for big rigs but close to a very noisy truck route. Staff was very helpful and took us in with no reservations. finding the right exit 1, as you head West, is a tough one, as three interstates come together right before the Mississippi River. We missed it and had to come back from downtown St. Louis, as I'm told a lot of travelers do. The long pull through are actually two spaces so you might have to disconnect your tow to allow another unit behind you. Easy to navigate the roads hooked up. Laundry room is a little small for the size of the park. We camped at Cahokia RV Parque in a Motorhome.

Big rig friendly with level sites. The construction on I-55 makes getting to the campground confusing so be sure to watch your GPS and the road. Bathrooms and laundry were good. No dog park but lots of grass to walk dog. Easy to ride bicycle in campground. Small swimming pool but looked clean. No activities in campground. We camped at Cahokia RV Parque in a Travel Trailer.
Downtown St Louis and Gateway Arch was only 3 miles. Super Walmart and other shopping was about 20 minutes. Neighborhood Walmart was only 2 miles but had limited groceries without produce and meat. The free St Louis Zoo is great and about 20 miles. Cahokia Mounds State Historic Site is about 30 minutes but worth the drive.

Stayed one night on trip west. Showed up w/o a reservation but no problem.
Assigned site was long enough for out van/20' TT without having to unhook.
Wifi was marginal as tower was in center of park and we were at the front. Might have been annoying had we stayed longer than 1 night. We camped at Cahokia RV Parque in a Travel Trailer.
Very close to St Louis.

Staff was friendly and helpful with booking and check-in. The park is on a highway that runs through a commercial/industrial area a few miles over the Mississippi river bridge from St Louis. The sites are pretty crowded, and the back to back linear arrangement of sites in the loop means if your neighbor has a long RV, it will spill over into your site. We backed in until the rear of our 5th wheel practically touched the rear of the big motor home in the adjacent site, and even being that close, we barely fit on the site. There was no room for our tow vehicle (pick-up truck) on the small site, so we parked it on the grass across the road from the site, and nobody objected. But we saw many sites where there was no grassy spot or any room to spare at all for a tow vehicle. The roads were narrow and spaces tight. There was an aged, splintering picnic table on our site, but we had to move it to the very edge of the site in order to fit the RV in it.
It seemed that many of the sites especially toward the back of the campground were occupied by long term or permanent residents. There was a fenced dumpster area near us that had rusty discarded appliances and other junk in it. In general, this is a functional but rather ugly place. Once you get inside your RV and shut out the view, it's fine. The hookups worked well. It was an easy drive into St Louis from here. We saw, but did not use, a small laundry facility near the campground office. We did buy BBQ to go from The Sawmill restaurant on site and it was pretty good (Pappy's in St Louis is better). Bottom line -- this CG will do in a pinch, but for $40 a night, I think I can find something with a little better scenery, like a state park. We camped at Cahokia RV Parque in a Fifth Wheel.
In St Louis, Pappy's BBQ is justly revered by BBQ fans. Try Pharaohs donuts in St Louis -- you can watch them making the donuts on site and then eat them warm.

Staff was very friendly. It's in an excellent location to visit the sites in and around St Louis. The pool was clear unlike other times we have stayed here. The laundry was small for the number of sites and on the pricier side. We have stayed here before and will stay here again when in the area. We camped at Cahokia RV Parque in a Fifth Wheel.
Bush Stadium, Budweiser Brewery, zoo and several other tourist attractions. Saw mill restaurant next door is a cheap place to eat.

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.

This is in/near East St. Louis and is in an industrial area. Most spaces up front at least, where we were placed, were occupied by workers in some industry in the area. Construction? Most of those sites appeared to be seasonal or at least long term. So, loud trucks leaving at dawn.
Sites are back-in and are tight; especially with extra cargo trailers and second vehicles parked in and around each site. We had to park our tow vehicle tightly between the front side of our fifth-wheel and the neighbor's cargo trailer. The doors on our truck opening only 3/4 of the way. Road between opposing sites were already narrow enough, but protruding truck beds etc., made them tighter.
The staff was friendly and helpful. The grounds needed some attention. Although with everyone stuffed in at our area, cutting grass etc. will have to wait.
Would we stay again? Yes, however, before site assignment I'd scout out the park for a site that had less clutter. We camped at Cahokia RV Parque in a Fifth Wheel.
There is an adjoining BBQ café and food was good/prices fine. Recommend. As said, not a resort by any means and yet not a "bad" park. Just pretty crowded and busy in our front section.

It's right in town and not too bad to get to - you just need to take it easy. There is a nice BBQ restaurant on site and you get a discount since you are staying at the park; the food was pretty good. There seemed to be a number of locals eating there so that's always a good sign. It's quite close to a number of attractions; although we were just passing through. This was one park where the wifi did work - it wasn't blazing fast but at least it stayed connected. We would stay again if in the area. There was a large mud puddle at the end of our original site and no matter what, one of us would be wading through it. We requested another site and they gladly accommodated - which we very much appreciated. The park could use a bit of maintenance - but for being in the city it wasn't bad. The sites were level overall. We would stay again. We camped at Cahokia RV Parque in a Travel Trailer.
Be careful getting there because there is some road construction and you are right in town. We used a combination of the GPS and their verbal directions and I'm glad we had both or we may have gotten lost.

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.
City Museum was a blast!

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.
Very good BBQ restaurant on-site - Sawmill BBQ. A self-service car wash was nearby.

Gravel sites with many long term residents. Area was wet from flooding of the previous week. Convenient access to St. Louis with nice pool and on site BBQ restaurant. 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.
The on-site Sawmill BBQ restaurant served a good brisket dinner. They are busy at noon.John and Carol • May 2017

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.SilverBear • May 2015
