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.

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.

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.

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.

This park is really in a great location to visit St.Louis, MO as it is right across the Mississippi River from the Gateway Arch and within a mile or two of three bridges crossing that river. It is probably the most expensive casino RV park we have stayed in but it's all about location, location, location. We had a long paved pull-through with gravel between the sites. It has 50 amps, water and sewer but all connections are at the back of the site so extra hoses are required. No picnic table - nothing but a blacktop pad and gravel elsewhere. The satellite was an easy acquisition and the Verizon reception is good. WiFi is available for a fee but we are not sure how much since we carry our own MiFi. Like many casinos, it's like checking in at a hotel including receiving a key card which must be turned back in when you leave. The desk is very helpful but not really a whole lot you need them for. We wouldn't stay here again except it is the only game in town, so to speak. We camped at Casino Queen RV Park in a Motorhome.
