Large parking lot. Poor wifi, limited cable stations. Roads to the park in terrible condition. Nice girl at front desk. Won't be back anytime soon. we need a park that looks like an RV park and not a parking lot. We camped at Casino Queen RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Park was a typical casino park, with parking lot qualities, but one side did have some trees. The women at the front desk were very helpful and the security was always there, to take you to the casino or to the train station where you cross the river into St Louis. We camped at Casino Queen RV Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Make sure to go into St Louis and do the tram trip up the Arch. It's a fascinating piece of architecture. Also, the Court House that was built in 1860 was beautiful. Right now they are doing a big construction job that should be done by next summer.

Located just across the river from St. Louis this CG offers a great view of the Arch. This is a paved parking lot with gravel in between the sites. Sewer outlet is at end of site so an extension was required. We were in the large RV section which has no trees. If it's summer - it's hot, but not the fault of the CG - it's St. Louis! The staff was very friendly at check-in and the security van seems to patrol every 20 minutes. East St. Louis has it's problems but this CG seems to be isolated from them and is just over the river from the big city. A very friendly service - if you're going to a Cardinals game, the security van will take you to the casino (very close) and from there you get a free ride to and from the stadium. We camped at Casino Queen RV Park in a Motorhome.

First we were charged for one day, then I notified the clerk we were schedule for two days. She charged me for three days and when I asked for a correction she charged me for four days. Apparently, unaware on how to make the credit card correction. This park has two sections, north and south. North side has trees but very small sites. We were unable to park our 30' trailer and have room for the tow vehicle. The south side has very large sites but not trees, much like an asphalt parking lot. The utilities were very good. Over-the-air TV was decent in the absence of cable. Site was asphalt with gravel patches separating sites. Security was good; if you are a light sleeper this could bother you. The mini-mart was a joke, opens from 8 AM to 4 PM, and the mini-mart is where you check in. There's a procedure for after hours check in. The park is close to downtown. Spacious roads for navigation. We camped at Casino Queen RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Arch, Anheuser Busch stadium, and brewery. In past years, we enjoyed visiting Union Station for eateries and shopping in the train shed. The station and hotel are magnificent, but all the shopping and eateries are gone due to the growing homeless population and the train shed is closed.

Our site wasn't level, needed blocks under the wheels. $5 extra per person for more than 2 people. Handy location for going to downtown St Louis. Campground was clean and tidy. Some channels on the cable were not very clear. We stayed in the south lot. We camped at Casino Queen RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

RV park is a bare parking lot with hookups. The north side has small sites and trees, the south side is bare, no trees. The interior roads are newly asphalt with gravel between sites. Grass on perimeter. No pool or extras. Asphalt everywhere so hot, hot, hot. Pickup for Queen Casino and Hotel. We camped at Casino Queen RV Park in a Motorhome.

This RV park is a converted black topped parking lot that has been converted to a park. There are no trees. All the utilities are located at the far end of the site. Do to location of the sewer connection, it exceeded the 25' of sewer hose I had available.There is loose stone separating each site. There are train tracks immediately adjacent to the lot and the train traffic is substantial with the occasional train stopped and the engines left running for an extended length of time. The office closes at 4:30 PM daily. There is shuttle service to the casino or to the rapid transit station, but getting back to your site from the train requires walking at least 1/2 mile to the desk at the hotel where they can call the shuttle.

Getting to the park from the interstate is quite a challenge. More signage would be very helpful. Use only as a last resort. We camped at Casino Queen RV Park in a Motorhome.

As others have said it is basically a parking lot with hookups but a good spot to stop to do the Arch, which is what we wanted. Looked in the casino but not our thing. Only one restaurant opened while we were there midweek. If in area again would probably look for somewhere farther out. We camped at Casino Queen RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

We did lunch at Angelo's after our visit to the Arch, very good and within walking distance. We used the Metro Link to travel to the Arch and was a short walk from the station. The casino security will pick you up and take you back to the campground from the station.

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.

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.

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.

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.
