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.

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 camped at Casino Queen RV Park in a Motorhome.

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.

Nice and safe for East St. Louis. Had a beautiful view of the Gateway Arch and downtown St. Louis. Good WiFi. Shuttle drivers were friendly and quick to respond. Close to Metro station. Nearby train tracks are very noisy. Website pics are NOT correct--weed-strewn gravel between sites, not grass. Paved roads and site. Easy in/out. Look for RV Park Mini Mart sign. We camped at Casino Queen RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Due to all the construction going on in St. Louis, take the Metro.

This was a nice campground. All of the campground is paved now with no grass between sites. We had to get a site in the back of North lot due to size of fifth wheel. The motorhome lot was full with a group. But for our stay it was a good site. We rode train over to St. Louis. We camped at Casino Queen RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

The key to this park is the location. Just across the river from the Arch. The park provided a shuttle to the Metrolink. The sites are very minimal. No picnic tables. No fire ring. The sites can be very short. There is a North and a South lot. We stayed in the North lot directly across from the registration site. The North lot has a little grass and some trees. The South lot has neither. The South lot is better suited for big rigs with tows. We camped at Casino Queen RV Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

The security/shuttle drivers were very friendly. Take your site information with you if you go to the Metrolink. You can call security and they will pick you up on your return.

Check in was fairly fast, professional and friendly. Sites are close by and all of them are pull through. While we don't gamble, we are assuming many of those staying here did, as we did not see too many people socializing or sitting out. The walk to the Casino is approximately a half mile. There are multiple dining options at the Casino, which is convenient. Also, there is a free shuttle between the Casino and Busch Stadium, an added bonus. Didn't see any security at the RV park, like we did on the grounds of the Casino, but felt safe the entire time we were there. We camped at Casino Queen RV Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

If you are a photographer, bring your camera. The views of the Arch and the St. Louis skyline are fantastic!!!!

East St. Louis, IL is the 4th most dangerous city in America, so we were so relieved to find the park surrounded by a high chain link fence and regularly patrolled by security. The grounds were impeccable, quiet (except for the occasional train which traveled around two sides of the park), and well maintained. Couldn't have asked for a safer place for a night's stay. There was a common green area that contained gazebos for picnicking. We made our reservation while traveling on the road and arrived after hours. A security guard guided us to both the park and our site, so we didn't get inside the office to fill out paperwork. Office closed at 4 pm and opened at 11 am. We were on the road before then, so didn't get to interact with employees or see a site map or anything. Will stay there in the future if we are traveling that way. We camped at Casino Queen RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

We checked in, the campground was empty and we were assigned 502 which a previous reviewer had said to avoid because of being right next to waste container, closest to railroad and furthest from shuttle pickup. I asked the young lady if we could be assigned a site closer to shuttle pickup and she pleasantly changed the site number. Everyone was extremely nice and we never heard the train. We found it easy to find and easy to leave in the morning. We will return. We camped at Casino Queen RV Park in a Motorhome.

Picked up barbecue at Pappys and it was excellent.

The rv park is neat and tidy. It is a good location; very close to downtown. There is some security; they drive around several times a day. The laundry is sparse - only 2 machines. The laundry costs $3. for either the washer or dryers! And at that price the clothes were still damp! It is easy to get lost getting to the rv park; the signs are not easy to follow and the park directions leave out a lot of information. The staff was friendly but didn't pay attention to the details. At first we were assigned a spot that was way too short for us, after being asked about our length! I had to go back and ask for a longer one. There is a lot of train noise throughout the night as the tracks surround the rv park. The spots are blacktop with gravel in between the RV's. The spots are nice and wide so each spot seems private. However our spot was not level and we had to go up on blocks so we didn't over extend our jacks. It's a nice park that could be spectacular if anybody cared about it. It clearly seems to be a casino afterthought. We camped at Casino Queen RV Park in a Motorhome.

We chose this park based on the information provided on the website. When we arrived there were no sites with grass as advertised on their web site. All the sites are crush gravel with concrete pads. The staff is friendly and courteous. Laundry facilities are excellent. The real complaint is site 500, 502, 504 are approx 50 ft from the railroad and the trains run all day and night. In addition, site 502 is located with the trash bin located next to the site and the trash pickup comes at 3:30 AM everyday. Very noisy and hard to sleep through. The metro is very close as well as the casino and those are both pluses. If we return to this park we will stay closer to the casino. We camped at Casino Queen RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a nice campground with wide streets and wide sites, although the sites are asphalt with gravel between sites. The only grass is on the perimeters. The casino and campground are in an industrial area and a little tricky to find - be sure to watch for the sign that says "RV Park Mini Market". Security drives through the campground frequently so we felt safe in the area. Trains run frequently on nearby tracks (day and night), so whistles are routine. The location is easy access to St. Louis and nearby sites. We had no issues with satellite; wifi was slow but workable. We would consider staying here again if in the area. Our rate reflects a 2 week stay. We camped at Casino Queen RV Park in a Motorhome.

Convenient spot across the river from the arch. Expensive, $53 flat rate for everybody, big or small ($47 with Good Sam discount). Smaller rig side less crowded. Metro station at corner of casino parking lot. You can also bike or walk across the bridge. Friendly staff. Trains very close to park but we love the sound and we slept well. Safe and close to downtown. What else do you want, maybe $35 per night rates. Pool in hotel was standard, nice after a sweaty day in the zoo. We camped at Casino Queen RV Park in a Motorhome.

Good location for St. Louis and Cahokia Mounds State Park. You do have to be alert for the correct route to the campground. As you approach Casino Queen, there is a red sign with yellow lettering "RV PARK MINI MART NOW OPEN" with an arrow indicating a left turn prior to the main entrance to the casino. Looking left however gives a view of a locked gate. The road turns left before the gate but it's hard to see before you actually make the turn, as we found out later. Instead we turned into the main Casino entrance. That is no problem, there is plenty of room to maneuver, and a security van came right over and escorted us to the RV park. Security vans also took us to the casino where we had a good dinner one evening, and to the metro station for easy access to St. Louis. Ask for their number when you check in. Trains run along one side of the park all day. Two nights we heard none, the third night we were woken twice by train horns. Overall the best choice for the area. We camped at Casino Queen RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

The rate paid is a Good Sam rate including tax. Large, level, long paved sites with good hookups. Good cable and satellite reception. Wi-Fi and cell phone reception was good. The view of the Arch was incredible. The shuttle to the casino was very prompt. The Arch is a short drive across the river. However, once you are checked in, you don't see any employee again. We don't mind train noise in general, but this was exceptionally loud and all day and night. You could also hear the city tram and interstate was extremely loud. Laundry was pricey: $3/wash; $3/dry. No pool at the park (however a nice green area was in the center). No grass or trees in the big rig area. Note: once you are out of the casino area, East St. Louis is a very, very rough area. It is a good spot location-wise to tour St Louis but pricey. We camped at Casino Queen RV Park in a Motorhome.
