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.

Tips for other Campers:

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.

Tips for other Campers:

close to Cahokia mounds and American Queen Casino.

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.

Tips for other Campers:

Gateway Arch is a must see, Steamboat tour, Free trolley from downtown to the Anheuser-Busch Brewery and the tour is also free

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 stayed here for a week. Nice park, very clean, and well kept. The staff is very friendly at both the office and restaurant (Sawmill BBQ). The restaurant is VERY good, and VERY reasonably priced. St Louis is close and this park is easy to get to if you come off I-255. The flies and mosquitos were a bit much though. The pond at the back of the park is totally green with algae and probably one of the major points of origin for the insects. The pool was closed for the season, which is understandable after all, it is September. The Wi-Fi works great at the Sawmill, or office and it is free. It does not reach the camping spots. We camped at Cahokia RV Parque in a Fifth Wheel.

Rate reflects Good Sam discount for 30-amp, full hook-ups, back-in site. Nice sites, fairly level. We had reservations, but didn't need them. Wi-Fi available in campground office and adjacent to the pool. Friendly staff. Close to The Arch in St. Louis. Easy to get to. We would stay here again. We camped at Cahokia RV Parque in a Travel Trailer.

This park although in Illinois, is within 10 min of the St Louis Arch. We chose this because there is not much to choose from in the St Louis area. It looks pretty run down but has W/E/S and Wi-Fi, but no cable, though you can pick up a few channels with an antenna. That being said the Wi-Fi is very slow even though we were 50 ft from the office. We requested 50 amp, but the site we were given was very unlevel and not wide enough for our 40 footer with 2 slides. We saw another site that was only 30 amp which we took. It was shaded by a large tree and level. Most sites seem to be filled by seasonal or permanent residents.There is a BBQ restaurant on the property. This was our second time staying here. The first time was Oct. 2011.We would stay here again if in the St Louis area. We camped at Cahokia RV Parque in a Motorhome.

Camped here for 5 days since it is so close to St. Louis. Park is located in industrial part of town, but felt safe and traffic was easy. Only one night with road noise. Park seems to have been run down, but owners appear to be progressively updating it. Nice check in cabin office. Restrooms were very clean and pool is small, but freshly painted. Seems to be quite a few "permanent" campers, and there is a small "pond" in rear that needs quite a bit of work. If you stay here, the best locations are near check in upfront. Our lot had a large Sycamore tree for shade and a BBQ restaurant had fantastic food. Owners were super nice. Park could use trash receptacles at various points for trash and dog poo, but overall park is being updated and made for a nice vacation. No Wi-Fi in campground lots. However, It is free at check in cabin and restaurant. We camped at Cahokia RV Parque in a Truck Camper.

Overnight enough. Sites are gravel and small with no room for a 38' and parking the truck. Not bad on level. Would not give us a pull through, but one was available. Road noise not bad, but close. Good restaurant there. Clean. We camped at Cahokia RV Parque in a Fifth Wheel.
