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. We camped at Casino Queen RV Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Casino Queen casino nearby.

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. We camped at Casino Queen RV Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

St. Louis is a nice city to tour, with a lot of free places to see. You must take time to see the brewery, Gateway Arch, zoo, Grant's Farm, and take in a ball game. We thoroughly enjoyed getting a root beer float at Fitz's. The food was great, too.

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. We camped at Casino Queen RV Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Of course, the Gateway Arch is a must see and do. In addition, check out the City Garden, a nice place to sit and contemplate, or a great place for kids to run around. There are wonderful sculptures throughout. The Old Courthouse (Dred Scott lawsuit was filed in the court house), Cathedral Basilica of Saint Louis (absolutely exquisite), and to eat Pappy's BBQ (best ribs I have ever had in my life - fall off the bone, tasty, and meaty).

What a great location right across the river from St. Louis with the Gateway Arch framed in the RV Park's background. There is a Metro (elevated train) stop in front of the casino that will take you downtown and near the Arch. Security will pick you up and take you there also, as well as to the casino, although it is an easy five minute walk from the RV park. If you drive to downtown, two quick turns and across the Eads Bridge and you'd there in five minutes. The RV park is not much more than an asphalt parking lot. I would have hated to be there in the summer. Asphalt roads, level asphalt sites and gravel patios area. No picnic tables. The right side of the park, where the larger sites were, is devoid of trees and grass. The left side has some trees and the end sites have some grass. We have parked near railroad tracks before and never been bothered. Not here. The tracks run ten feet form the back of the park and there must be a switching station or something nearby. Every night around 2 a.m. the noise, especially the whistles, was frightful. The bathrooms and laundry were very nice. You felt very safe, even though East St. Louis is a bit scary. We camped at Casino Queen RV Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Forest Park, with the zoo, art museum and trails, is a great place to spend time.

Big Rig size sites, all utilities worked fine. Very secure RV Park. Cable and approx 23 Over the air TV Channels. Room between sites. Will stop again.

Stayed at the Casino Queen RV Park for 4 days while attending a wedding in St. Louis. Best thing about this park was the other people. One of the friendliest parks we have stayed at. Staff was excellent, and while the park isn't in the best neighborhood the security was great. One side of the park is for Big Rigs, basically a parking lot. The other side, for smaller rigs has trees and nice shade. Wifi was good, bathrooms are good but required key cards that didn't work that well. The park is very close to the Metro public transportation into St. Louis. The park staff will take you by shuttle right to the Metro station. Metro takes you across the Mississippi River right to Busch Stadium. It is a great place to stay if you are in town to see the Cardinals. Casino hotel lets you use pool and exercise room. We camped at Casino Queen RV Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Visit Busch Stadium to see the Cardinals play. Anheuser Busch Brewery has an excellent tour.

A clean park and that is about all I can say about it. No trees or shade in the RV park area. All blacktop and stones. Utilities are at the back of the site so you will need a couple hoses and a long electric cable. Trains run continually and make a lot of noise. The park is not worth the $55 price. This is the most expensive Casino park we have ever stayed in and after one night we won't be back. We camped at Casino Queen RV Park in a Motorhome.

This is a great RV park for access to downtown St Louis via the metro. There is a lot of city noise next to the park: trains, metro, highways, planes. You can see the arch from the RV park. Park has good hookups, level sites, paved roads and sites. They have free WIFI that works sometimes. Cable was a DirectTV feed and went out when it rained. Clean small laundry but $3 wash/ $3 dry! RV office & small store close at 4pm, which is a first for us, but there is a self check-in procedure. Security drives through campground regularly. Big-rig sites have no greenery, but smaller sites on north have trees between most sites. Our rate was Good Sam and was the most we have paid in weeks of traveling. We camped at Casino Queen RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Security (who are very helpful) will give you a ride from the RV park to the metro stop. Take their number and call them and they will pick you up also. Very short metro ride over the river & no parking or traffic worries. It's a bit of a walk to the arch, but doable.

There really is no other place to go this close to the city. Very secure, we checked in late with the night security guard without issue. Restrooms were clean and air conditioned. We didn't use showers. Basically a big parking lot with some picnic areas. We stayed here one night on our way to Boston. Currently there's a good amount of road/bridge construction going on, check your GPS and double check it with your phone gps if you're not familiar with the area, kinda easy to miss a ramp/turn due to construction. Plenty of shopping and restaurants around. There is a Casino with other facilities available, we didn't use them. We camped at Casino Queen RV Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

We've been here a few times, not a destination, but going through to other locations. Don't worry about security, this place is well lit and patrolled.

If I'm going to spend $53 to sleep 8 hours I will get a nice comfy motel room just up the road with lots of room. At this price it defeats the whole purpose of camping. It is kept very clean though. The North lot where they put travel trailers are very short. Not enough room to park the camper and truck because you will be sticking out onto the road. Nice picnic area with BBQ grills, small playground, shelters The trains are noisy enough to ruin your sleep. If you don't mind forking out this kind of money for a nights sleep in your camper it's fine. I can sleep just as well in a walmart parking lot for FREE. We camped at Casino Queen RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Close to casino, metrolink, restaurants, and stores.

Not a bad park. The sites toward the casino/west, I think, are not level so try to get towards rear of park. The worst part is the getting there. Signage is not that great and do to road reconfigurations your GPS might get confused. All sites are paved as it is basically a full hook up parking lot.

I like it, though it is overpriced, it is easy for a big rig to move about in. It also is close to Interstates, assuming the GPS doesn't get lost. We camped at Casino Queen RV Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Gateway Motorsports Park is nearby and access to Saint Louis is a Piece of cake.

Parking lot. A little expensive for a casino, but the facilities were clean and functional. No shade and a bit of a challenge navigating with the construction going on. Not in the best area of town, a little run down. Ended up towing the rig through downtown St. Louis because we missed the navigational directions. We camped at Casino Queen RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Downtown St. Louis across the bridge - lots of construction. Very little on this side of town, and you may be turned off by the blight.

Very convenient to the city. Basically a large parking lot with hookups but that is all we were expecting. Our section not crowded. Service was fine even though we arrived late. Small store available. No picnic tables. Ask for directions. Interstate under construction and access is complex. GPS will not get your there easily.

We enjoyed our three nights in this unexpected concrete-jungle gem that is practically in the middle of St. Louis. Despite being all concrete and gravel (does not have grass divides as illustrated on website) this location is great if your intent is to get some rest or visit St. Louis. Sites are VERY level. Limited road noise and train passes within 100 yards of property but it goes so slow you only hear the rumble and the kids enjoyed see them (at least every couple hours). The Metrolink (railway) has a stop on the casino property ($7.50 all-day pass) which connects you to all the major attractions in the city (zoo (free admission), art museum, Arch (which is one stop away), downtown, airport, etc). Easy access for extremely large trailers or motorhomes. All sites provide stunning view of the Gateway Arch as St. Louis. Staff extremely helpful and customer oriented. Great little memorial park within walking distance (about half-mile). Guests have access to casino swimming pool and shuttle services. Sewage smell is present every once in a while due to caps having vents. Water didn't have noticeable tastes. Many HD over-the-air stations available - couldn't get cable to work but didn't spend much time on it. Very limited playground on-site with only swings, a slide, and a see-saw. Market on the grounds is very basic and over-priced but a Wal-Mart is about five minutes away. Though amazing basic in presentation we would definitely stay again when passing through or spending time in the city. Patrolled regularly despite being in questionable area - felt very safe. Good Sam/Military discount. Our 20' Travel Trailer - Hybrid was in a sea of extremely large motorhomes. We camped at Casino Queen RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Take a site closer to the river but away from others if you want to see Arch/city since others may park directly beside you. Sites are close so without open space you'll lose your view quickly. Use the shuttle service; guards extremely helpful.

Convenient to visiting St. Louis. This was the 2nd time we stayed here. The first was late spring of 2012. Illinois has changed their law regulating minors' access to casino hotel facilities. People 21 and under can now eat in the hotel's restaurants and use the hotel's pool That is a big plus!! They have a great playground for children. Other than that it is a big, open RV parking lot. We camped at Casino Queen RV Park in a Motorhome.
