1 Park near East St Louis, Illinois
May 2016 - $53.00
We stayed two nights. Our site, along with a lot of others, was not level. We had a heck of a time leveling, with tires off the ground. Check-in was a little slow, and the person closed at 4 PM. We've stayed at a lot of casinos that were better and cheaper. St. Louis area has to get some more RV parks. - 1dinky

This park has two sections...north and south. The north half are shorter and are shaded. The south half sites are 70' long with no shade. Not surprisingly the longer sites are more expensive. In my opinion the park is way over priced. The washing machines in the laundry are $3.00! All sites are asphalt, full hookup (20/30 amp, good water pressure, dump and cable TV) with gravel "patios". So the park is essentially a large asphalt parking lot sub-divided into RV sites. Our site was $59 but Good Sam brought it down to $53. The only nearby attraction is the casino. Given all that the park is waaaay over-priced. But the interior roads are easily navigated by any rig and the staff is excellent. There is 24-hr security which doubles as a courtesy transport to the casino. We're up late and I didn't see security patrolling that night but did see them several times the next morning. This park is probably the best, close-in park for seeing St. Louis. There is a commuter train station nearby which will take you into the city. Satellite users will have no problems in the southern portion of the park and I doubt the small trees in the northern half will pose a problem. NOTE: In the southern lot all of the hookups are at the end of the site. If you're in a MH and towing and NOT planning to unhook your toad you'll have a long run to the posts and sewer.
GETTING to the park is a mixed bag. We approached from NB I-55. Directions were to take 4th street exit...which we never saw. It may be there but we didn't see it. We went up a few exits and turned around. Running SB on I-55 was much easier. Take exit 2A and follow published directions and Casino Queen signs. NOTE: You'll go through two underpasses with no height markings. We're 12'6 in our MH and had no problems. Turn at the RV Park Mini Mart sign.
Bottom line...if you want to see the sights in St. Louis AND be close to the city then this is the park to use. We would stay here again. - rk911

The RV reviews are accurate. The park is a glorified parking lot. We were lucky that we were on the side of the park with trees so it gave us a little better feel. The bathrooms are very minimal. They are spacious, but no privacy, one has to dress in the common area except for the handicap shower. The handicap shower floor is concrete with no bath mat, the water came out of only a few of the holes in the shower head, the shower head did not come off of the pole, the shower curtain is so close to the shower head one is constantly touching the shower curtain. I'm not handicapped, but used the shower because the only other shower was a small fiberglass shower and there was no private dressing area. The men's room shower was backed up and my husband was standing in water that would not drain (the following day maintenance cleared the clog.)
We thought with the casino within a short walk of the park we might get some food. The steak house was closed, it is opened on Friday and Saturday night only, the buffet opened at 11 AM and closed at 6 PM, there is a small sports bar type area serving hot dogs and such, and there is a deli that we did not check out. The casino itself was small and pretty empty.
We did like the location of the park as it is within a small walk of the Metro Station into St. Louis, MO. Casino security will drive you to the Metro Station. Security does drive through the park quite often. Unfortunately this is the closest park to the Gateway Arch and downtown St. Louise.
Very few amenities. No picnic table, fire ring, pool, spa. There is a playground and area to walk dogs. - Living the Life
