14 Parks near Granite City, Illinois
Jul 2014 - $25.00
The good part about this campground was the close proximity to St. Louis. Hookups were OK but don't expect TV, satellite or antenna. A good ol' boy runs the park, which is filled mostly with good ol' boys and fishermen. Had to chase him down to pay before I left. No amenities unless you want to fish. I'll look for something in St. Louis area, even if higher in price, the next time I'm in the area. - RVW Traveler

We were going to stay here but when we got there there was a pit bull and rottweiler running lose on the ground. Not the kind of place we would stay. - Big Benny

Despite its unkempt and tired appearance, we had a nice time here. The bathrooms are serviceable, ditto the shower. The fishing is great, though. It's not exactly "family friendly" in the same sense that cg's with playgrounds, trails, open spaces are, but it not anti-kid either. There are a lot of permanent residents, and those that we met have been friendly and helpful. We'd probably stay here again based on price and necessity. - Joann26

Close to interstate, with friendly staff. Only about 20 minutes to downtown St Louis.
In middle of industrial park and next to noisy race track. Sites very close together. Rained overnight and drainage poor, waded through water to hook up.
Will look elsewhere next time through the area. - RCM11

I called 2 hours before arriving for an overnight stop on our way throuh the area. I was not told that the campground was a) in an industrial park, b) near active railroad tracks and c) next to a car race track. The noise from the racing was very loud, so we were forced to run AC he entire time in order to block out the noise. I guess the "good" news is that you can't hear the interstate, but that is because the racetrack noise drowns out all other road noise. The site was a decent size and sufficient to stay hooked up. One of the things I thought was odd is that the laundry room is locked up at 7 pm, so if you arrive late afternoon, don't plan on using the facilities to do laundry. We would not stay here again. - mtn_bikers

We decided to go a night earlier and the girl that answered was very accommodating, but told us we would have to move the next day. No problem, so since we didn't get into the park until about midnight, we found our temp spot and did a partial set up. It was in a "V" spot which meant we were tail to tail with our neighbors and their sewer hookups were about 5 feet from our picnic table, so we asked the next day where our permanent spot was, we were told that we were in our spot. When I asked if we could move, the answer was "no" they were full. I get it that it was a holiday however, we watched two end spots have a different camper every night. It would have been nice to be able to have one of them so that we could have sat outside and had dinner, but no go. It seemed that the worker at the desk was having a bad day and was not very friendly. Other workers were very nice, friendly. Otherwise, the spot was spacious enough, shady; the pool was nice, although we didn't use it; the pet area was decent and so was the price. The down side was definitely the mosquitoes! And no fire rings. We didn't noticed the noise from trucks or trains. It was close to St. Louis and Sweetie Pies, which we highly recommend! We camped here in a motorhome. - auntkaki

This is perhaps the worst campground we have ever stayed at. The sites are short, not level and very close together. The road is dirt and full of holes. There are permanent residents who don't think there is a need to keep their site neat or free of dog waste. This area the park is in, seems to be very unsafe and dirty. Next time I come to this area, I will find somewhere else to stay. - Ron910

We called ahead to reserve a spot. The woman who answered the phone did not identify the park when she picked up; I had to confirm that I had the right number. She quoted $25 per night and confirmed that they were big rig friendly. I explained that we were pulling a 40' 5th wheel with a long bed 1 ton truck, and that we'd need 50 amp. She said no problem, just to call her when we got closer. When we called back, she told us to leave a check in the drop box and take any spot we wanted. We got there only to find it is NOT big rig friendly, and it was dirty and ill maintained. With quite a bit of maneuvering, we were able to turn around and leave. There are a lot of what looks to be full time and transient residents there. We didn't think we'd stay even if it had comfortably fit our rig as it was a little sketchy looking. There are no pull throughs because of the very low power lines running throughout the park. I would not stay here. It's a dump. - Gogirl

STAY AWAY !!! This place is a dump with many issues. I plugged my 50 amp surge protector into the electric box and got a reading of 130V on one leg and 114V on the other leg. Surge protector would kick out often. There was trash everywhere. The fellow next door was living in a box truck that looked like it hadn't been moved in 10 years. Every morning he would sit in his bucket seat, which was positioned next to the water faucet, and wash up and do his dishes. We never saw the manager only talked to her on the phone. There was never anybody in the office. Did I say? ...STAY AWAY - john5079

It is duck season so you will hear some shooting in the morning hours. At night when 9:00PM comes you will hear the alert siren for the city, go off. This is because a child curfew is in effect and it is a reminder to parents to check and see where your kids are at. My stay was nice, then again I am working in the area (St. Louis) and was therefore not here to visit the sites. But for working in the area it was just what I needed. The interstate into St. Louis is very busy and adds about 20 minutes to the morning drive. But if here for sightseeing this should not be a problem for most people. With winter coming up, they allowed you to "underpin" your travel trailer to help keep pipes from freezing. All in all, I would stay here again if work was closer. - Maxflex

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. - kimble

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. - 2012ViewProfile

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. - Oooooooo

The value is in the location and the owners. The painful truth is that the spaces are VERY close together, which gives you little room to position to reach the hookups and open slides. The BEST part is that the owners are friendly and very helpful, they help you get into your space, provide great sightseeing info, and the park is right in the city near public buses (so no need to worry about parking in the downtown). They allowed us to park in the unoccupied space next to our site. If this park was full, it would be crowded, but I feel like the owners would help make it work for you.
The owner took over the park from her parents, who set up the park when
RVs were much smaller. They are now in the slow process of removing
pedestals and utilities in order to allow more space between the sites. In
time they hope to provide more room for each camper. We would stay here
again because of the location and friendliness. - FreeWheeler

This is a wonderful location for seeing or doing business in downtown St. Louis. The campground is almost a square city block. As other reviewers have mentioned, it is an asphalt parking lot with many full service sites crowded together. You are asked to take your dog for a walk outside the park, there is no grass.
However, you are just a few blocks from public transportation or you can take an inexpensive cab to where you want to go. No driving, no parking. The staff are very friendly and helpful. Upon check in, you get a map of town with restaurants and areas of interest noted by hand on the map. The phone number for the cab company is provided on your site map of the campground. The swimming pool looked inviting, but we were so busy doing tourist stuff that we didn't take time to swim. We would definitely stay here again. - ShoreXplorers

The best thing about this site is location. You are in the heart of St Louis and just blocks from major attractions and food. Everything else is a short drive. The park is recently under new management (same family, just next generation) and there have been improvements. Most notably is clean up of the park and removal of old/non-used RVs. Also, one now gets "two" sites for one. One for your RV, the other for your vehicle. This is a nice change. Plenty of space for everything. The hookups are full (sewer at every site). The pool is small but very nice. The downsides: It's all asphalt; little grass and no trees. The owner claimed that the WiFi was recently upgraded and all sites should have great connection. This was true in the off-hours. There needs to be some work done with the router to limit the bandwidth so that it doesn't get bogged down in the daytime hours. This is my third time coming to the park and it won't be the last. - WineStream

It's right in town and not too bad to get to - you just need to take it easy. There is a nice BBQ restaurant on site and you get a discount since you are staying at the park; the food was pretty good. There seemed to be a number of locals eating there so that's always a good sign. It's quite close to a number of attractions; although we were just passing through. This was one park where the wifi did work - it wasn't blazing fast but at least it stayed connected. We would stay again if in the area. There was a large mud puddle at the end of our original site and no matter what, one of us would be wading through it. We requested another site and they gladly accommodated - which we very much appreciated. The park could use a bit of maintenance - but for being in the city it wasn't bad. The sites were level overall. We would stay again. - Rjjjbrown

This is in/near East St. Louis and is in an industrial area. Most spaces up front at least, where we were placed, were occupied by workers in some industry in the area. Construction? Most of those sites appeared to be seasonal or at least long term. So, loud trucks leaving at dawn.
Sites are back-in and are tight; especially with extra cargo trailers and second vehicles parked in and around each site. We had to park our tow vehicle tightly between the front side of our fifth-wheel and the neighbor's cargo trailer. The doors on our truck opening only 3/4 of the way. Road between opposing sites were already narrow enough, but protruding truck beds etc., made them tighter.
The staff was friendly and helpful. The grounds needed some attention. Although with everyone stuffed in at our area, cutting grass etc. will have to wait.
Would we stay again? Yes, however, before site assignment I'd scout out the park for a site that had less clutter. - TPDBOB8687

Pulled in a heavy rain storm and expected the sites to be flooded, but the drainage was great and within minutes of the rain stopping the sites were left with no standing water. Many sites are occupied by workers staying for long term, but it was not any issues with the folks that come in for a few days and then leave. The roadway outside the park is busy and there is road noise, If you stay in the park you get a discount card to use at the on site restaurant, we didn't use on this visit. People inside the park said it was very good. Roads are asphalt and sites are gravel and for the most part level. Easy commute to down town St. Louis and appears to be a safe location. - weighit

The park offers weekly and monthly rates and is primarily used for longer term campers. Due to IL state law regulating mobile home and RV parks, only trailers or fifth wheels are permitted. This park is very clean, quiet and well run. The RV's are intermixed with the mobile homes and many of the RV's are seasonal or long term. The neighbors are friendly. The streets are paved and very wide and easy to maneuver. All sites are paved with water, 50/30 am electric, sewer. There are no restrooms or showers. All RVs must be self contained. The park is very convenient to shopping, entertainment and restaurants. Also, it is convenient to IL-255 for easy access to I-270 and I-255. All in all a very nice park for extended stays. - 15243

This park is closed for the season and will not reopen in 2016. The owners plan to remove the park facilities put the land up for sale. - 15243

Convenient to I-70 or I-55 and very nice for a one night stopover. Friendly folks at check-in, clean facility. Very nice area and close to St Louis if one wanted to visit the city. - dodgedan

This was just an overnight stop for us on our journey home. I'm not a fan of typical RV parks and prefer state or county parks even if you don't have all the amenities. For this reason, I just rated this site as "Satisfactory."
The sites all have full hookups but they are VERY close together. The sites are paved and many are pull through, which is convenient. The park appears well managed and clean.
The location is not walking distance to any restaurants or other services. - Ree Klein

Scott is a good place to stop over, but only for a few nights. As noted, the water/power pedestals are between each site, so you may need up to 40 feet of hoses/cable if you are in an odd number site and your hookups are on the street side of your motorhome. Even numbered sites have it a bit easier. Area is beautiful, easy enough access on to the base, easier to maneuver in the FamCamp. All the sites are relatively level and nicely treed, so that can create issues with getting a satellite signal. TV reception was good with OTA. Scary bathrooms! Wish it were just a Halloween prank, but oy vey.... Think they salvaged these components when the State of Wyoming shut down their frontier prison. It's like someone's cheap uncle built them thinking they were doing a job in a friends basement. Seriously, use the facilities in your rig. The spiders will thank you. - NavyStore

Almost hard to find, after entering base, you must drive around the runway, you have to leave through a different gate than you entered.
Site was assigned when reservation was made, so there is no check-in.
Roads & sites are paved, but our site, #24 was an extremely un-level back-in . They have water & electric, but no sewer, there is a dump station. Bathrooms & showers & laundry were clean and worked well. - bukhrn

Hookups are a little odd; needed extra long hose to reach water hydrant. No sewer but dump station is close. Shady and fairly quiet spot. Here for three nites and will stay here again. - Bojangles
