Management is horrible, very rude. She acted like she was doing us a favor renting a spot. On the phone with one of her children, I'm guessing, while I stood there waiting. The park itself is an old mobile home park with few amenities. Two of the four dryers weren't working. A neighbor said they had been broken for months. No showers, pool, and only one small bathroom located in the laundromat. No picnic tables. No fires allowed. Most RVs were permanent but neighbors we talked to seemed nice enough. There was a sewer smell as we walked our dogs. We won't stay here again. - The Rambler

Found this one for the location, near our destination for tomorrow. Called about noon, left msg, no return call as their office is closed on Sunday. On arrival found no check-in info, no available sites no rate info, so called again. Recording. Walked around and found an empty site, and asked a neighbor if it was being used... he said no, so we pulled in. Needed to leave early in the am, 8:30, and the office doesn't open until 9. Guess we'll leave an envelope. Hmmm.... Site itself was OK, concrete pad and spacious. Power pole new, and full hookups. No picnic table or fire pit, though. - BridgeInRV

Just stayed for one night. Sites are large concrete pads. We would definitely stay here again. - BPowell

Right on the highway so VERY noisy. Way too many trees so couldn't get any satellite signal. Not really an RV park...more long term trailers. - CIAforHim

Trees on entry road need trimming; also a number of the sites have low hanging branches. We have stayed at this RV park many times while visiting family, but never again. We arrived shortly after the flooding, expecting to find debris & signs of the creek overflowing. What we did not expect was to find dried sewage covering the pad and the grassy areas. Our site was closer to the creek than others, but the water had receded 5 days earlier. The water connection is underground (which I have always been a bit uneasy about), and the access "hole" was full of mud & likely sewage. Apparently every time the park floods -- which it does almost every year, to some extent -- the sewage comes up through the sewer connections. The smell was awful. We called the owner to come down; they were apologetic & said they'd get someone down to pressure-wash & spray chemicals on the pad in the next day or two and dig out the water connection. I'm not sure if they pick up the "sheets" of dried sewage; that wasn't mentioned. We had no idea this happened until this year, and has guaranteed we will not be going back to this park again because of the health risks, and the general "crawly" feeling we had once we realized we were basically parked in a sewer. There are children living in this park! The park is in a flood plain, but nothing was ever mentioned about sewage backing up into the park. The owner is a very sweet lady, but she's now in her mid-90s and just not able to keep up with things anymore. It's a real shame, because we always enjoyed the quiet, large sites, lack of traffic, and country "feel" (which is why I gave them a rating of 2). There are very few options for RV parks in the St. Louis area. If you decide to stay here and have pets, I'd suggest you buy a large container of disinfectant wipes to clean their feet every time they come back inside. We just could not convince ourselves to stay, although the majority of the sites are occupied. - HDT

I wasn't sure about this park until I got there, but it turned out to be a wonderful experience. I felt very safe there and didn't worry about my unit when I left my motor home for four days while attending an event in downtown St. Louis. When you see the "dead end" sign it makes you wonder what to expect and there is no place to turn around once you go past the sign. It is very convenient to Wal-Mart, downtown St. Louis, and eating places of all sorts. I would definitely stay here again, the sites were wide, paved, and easy to get into. The price reflected the weekly rate. - Ilovemyholidayrambler

Staff was nice. There are many amenities for people with children such as a pool, bicycles, and a bounce house. There are a lot of children playing unsupervised at the entrance - we almost hit one on a big wheel as he rode around our truck and trailer. However the rear of the campground is more secluded and the staff seems to put people without children back there. The scenery in the back was beautiful but you can hear the hum of the interstate.
Ask to stay in the back of the park. - Big Country Livin

Older KOA that is maintained Okay but could use some gravel in spots to cover mud and help level sites. Highway noise but tolerable if air conditioners were running. But nothing can mask the sound of the train traffic just on the other side of the highway. Must average at least one train per hour including all night long. My site was right next to the road so if you were further away it might not be as noticeable. - Bobco

This park is located close to interstate and significant road noise. Additional blue stone is needed on sites. Restroom/showers need updating, - Altoflyfisher

Acceptable for big rigs but close to a very noisy truck route. Staff was very helpful and took us in with no reservations. finding the right exit 1, as you head West, is a tough one, as three interstates come together right before the Mississippi River. We missed it and had to come back from downtown St. Louis, as I'm told a lot of travelers do. The long pull through are actually two spaces so you might have to disconnect your tow to allow another unit behind you. Easy to navigate the roads hooked up. Laundry room is a little small for the size of the park. - elduque

Staff was friendly and helpful with booking and check-in. The park is on a highway that runs through a commercial/industrial area a few miles over the Mississippi river bridge from St Louis. The sites are pretty crowded, and the back to back linear arrangement of sites in the loop means if your neighbor has a long RV, it will spill over into your site. We backed in until the rear of our 5th wheel practically touched the rear of the big motor home in the adjacent site, and even being that close, we barely fit on the site. There was no room for our tow vehicle (pick-up truck) on the small site, so we parked it on the grass across the road from the site, and nobody objected. But we saw many sites where there was no grassy spot or any room to spare at all for a tow vehicle. The roads were narrow and spaces tight. There was an aged, splintering picnic table on our site, but we had to move it to the very edge of the site in order to fit the RV in it.
It seemed that many of the sites especially toward the back of the campground were occupied by long term or permanent residents. There was a fenced dumpster area near us that had rusty discarded appliances and other junk in it. In general, this is a functional but rather ugly place. Once you get inside your RV and shut out the view, it's fine. The hookups worked well. It was an easy drive into St Louis from here. We saw, but did not use, a small laundry facility near the campground office. We did buy BBQ to go from The Sawmill restaurant on site and it was pretty good (Pappy's in St Louis is better). Bottom line -- this CG will do in a pinch, but for $40 a night, I think I can find something with a little better scenery, like a state park. - Maggie420

Stayed one night on trip west. Showed up w/o a reservation but no problem.
Assigned site was long enough for out van/20' TT without having to unhook.
Wifi was marginal as tower was in center of park and we were at the front. Might have been annoying had we stayed longer than 1 night. - DCM/JMB

We stayed with a large church group - about 90 middle schoolers and adults. Nightly rate I mentioned is not accurate since it was a group event. The park was great! Staff were attentive, helpful, and a pleasure to work with! Everyone was friendly, and made our stay an absolute pleasure! It's about 1/2 mile from Six Flags and a short drive into town for other attractions.
Now - the bad... actual sites for campers are very small and close together. They do however help with backing in so you don't have to struggle. No grass to speak of and after a rain, mud and dirt were tracked everywhere. If I had been there with our travel trailer, I'd have been spending all my time sweeping and mopping.
The park has a fabulous pool, great shop, and the cabins were immaculate... simple, but clean. Again, I can't say enough about the staff. They are genuinely there to make your stay great. I wouldn't hesitate to go back, but would prefer to stay in a cabin rather than deal with the hassle of cleaning up myself.
If you're approaching from the north, don't rely on GPS. You get taken through a very narrow, hilly, and winding road. Look at a map and take a few extra miles to stay on the interstate highway. - SM1969

We stay at this Jellystone Park every spring on our way home from Florida. It's always very clean and extremely well maintained. It's not that busy in the spring so we find it to be quiet and peaceful. Some of the RV sites offer a stunning view. I bet you can see for 20 miles. The sunsets are fabulous!
Two things I like best are that they have a huge store with lots of great merchandise I don't find anywhere else and a lovely veranda with tables/chairs and TV to relax at. Also love that they must keep their staff happy because I always find the same great people working there. It's like coming to stay with friends.
Not all sites are suitable for big rigs so be sure to let them know if you need a big rig site. They do always ask about our unit though. It's a nice, clean, friendly park with really good prices in the Spring when we go there! - randy d

This campground is way overpriced. Their published initial rates are only for two people. We paid $76 per night for two adults and three kids. Even "if" all of the kids' activities would have been included in the extra charge, it still would not have been worth $76/night. You have to pay additional for a lot of the activities. Check-in time is 3:00 p.m. and check-out time is 11:00 a.m.--you only get a maximum of 20 hours for the $76 you pay! The road into the campground is in need of resurfacing. The roads within the campground are narrow and could also be resurfaced. Most (if not all) of the RV/travel trailer sites are all gravel--no grass. This made it very difficult for our dogs to relieve themselves. The only grass area to take them to was quite a distance away from our site. The fire rings are buried into the ground and the top of the rings are flush with the ground. When it rained, our fire ring/pit filled up with water and could not be used--so much for a campfire being a part of our camping experience. The only positive comments we have about this campground are that the pool is nice and the staff is excellent. The young gentleman that took us to our site upon arrival was very friendly. He was very sincere in doing all he could to help get us parked and set-up. This young man is a huge asset to this Jellystone location--hopefully the management recognizes it. Most of the rest of the staff here were pleasant as well. The property owners/managers of this Jellystone need to understand that the staff here is probably the only reason this Jellystone is still in business. - Penny C

Very convenient location to get a cab to the centre of St Louis. Not a picturesque campground, but the gentleman running it was very helpful and we would certainly recommend it. - Anne Haworth

It IS big rig friendly. The sites are doubles now, so there is plenty of room to park your car next to your rig. However, do not accept site #9 - it is so low in front that our front wheels were off the ground. Laundry is clean and all 8 machines worked properly (4W/4D). People are very nice. Location is awesome! Everything you could want to visit is nearby. Pool is small but felt delightful in this heat. It is a gravel parking lot with no shade, no trees, and no grass. You are not paying for ambience here:) - SusanRon

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

We stayed 3 nights to see some attractions in the area due to the park's proximity to downtown St Louis. The park is an interesting drive from I-70/55/64 (Exit 2B: 3RD ST) through a commercial district along a paved roads that had seen better days. The casino grounds were undergoing some construction so it was a rough ride. Plus there were significant dips near the office which could cause damage from impacting the pavement. There were a lot of scrape marks in the pavement on both the entrance and exit sides. There was a main train track along one side of the park. Freight trains were very active along the route causing noticeable noise in the early morning hours. All of the sites are pull throughs. The interior roads and sites are paved. There are two different areas in the park. One that was older with smaller sites and a tree canopy. The other was newer, more open, with larger parking pads and no trees. We stayed in the newer section so the information about the sites is about the newer section. The park was built on a slope. There appeared to be no effort to tier any of the sites so only a handful are anywhere near level. The remainder have a bi-directional pitch that in some cases is extreme causing some motor homes to have their axles suspended in the air. The P/T sites were long enough but the location of the utility connections at the rear of the site caused us to park the towed vehicle in the front in order to reach the connections. They have full hook ups - water, electricity (50/30 AMP), & sewer. The sewer connection was at the ground so it was easy to establish a downhill flow. Sites had sufficient room for opening slides. Distance and gravel areas establish privacy between the sites. No outside table or fire pits. In the newer section, there were no obstructions to the sky so satellite reception was good. Cable channel lineup showed 15 channels. The park provided WiFi was poor. Our Verizon WiFi hotspot worked well. - bsb814

This is a mediocre casino RV park. As others have said, there are 2 sides: one is open with fairly large site and the other has some trees and smaller, tighter sites. I believe all site are FHU, pull through with limited cable TV. The Wi-Fi is not reliable and often useless. If not for easy access to St. Louis, this would be a very overpriced park. - Jerry S

Love this place. The view of downtown is spectacular! You can walk across Ead's bridge right from the parking lot. Security will take you from the park to the casino or the bridge any time day or night. Paved sites good utilities. Great location to visit St Louis. We stayed here in a 5th wheel. - Powerstroke

Gem of a park. Facilities great. Lots of slopes to some of the sites and narrow road throughout. Would definitely stay again. Park is heavily wooded. - smitty12

This was our first time here. Its an older state park, but its not run down. It's very wooded and most sites very private. We stayed on the buddy site 24 & 25 with some friends. Kind of a small buddy site, but it worked. Not a lot to do here, some hiking trails, a boat launch into the Meramec river. Overall, a nice clean park. - jstrom

Me and my father went at the end of May and it was great the we went hiking on found that the trails are beautiful. It was a great experience. The staff their was very nice but I wish that they were trained better because we asked about on of the trails and they didn't know anything about them. Other than that it is a pretty campground. (Especially in the Spring and Fall). The Bathrooms are very well maintained too. The other problem that we had was that the dump station was a little bit of a challenge to get to with our 24 foot trailer. The sites are great, they have a lot of room and are pretty flat. I do wish that their were water hook-ups. You get great views of nature and the woods though. HAVE FUN!!!!! - Mattman1222

Park only had about 4 walk up sites and the rest you need to reserve in advance. All the pads (that I noticed) were paved and mostly shaded. Not a big park but is well maintained and the camp hosts were very friendly. The park has a pool and has 1 river access (gets crowded on weekends) and a few nice trails (would be a nice hike in the fall). AT&T Cell service was excellent, did not detect any park WiFi and HD antenna picked up most channels (including FOX, CBS, NBC, PBS, CW and ABC) - stlcardfan

We came here because its close to home for us. We just bought our first camper and wanted to try it out somewhere close to home. It was early in the season so most amenities were not available to us. I would come here again, and we well be back again in July. - jstrom
