An old time KOA with all dirt and gravel interior and pads. Expensive for the time of year and condition of the roads. I almost felt I was on a jeep trail just to get to our site. Unusual for a KOA but we were "kind of" guided to our site and the dude just drove off. Most KOAs do a good job with this service. The interior road in front of the coach was quite narrow and I really had to concentrate on not hitting the trees when I pulled out. We were offered cable as they claimed we couldn't get satellite. Cable didn't work but satellite did. Wifi was a joke. Soon after we settled in we found out there were train tracks just outside the park so lots of train noise. This KOA was not suited for big rigs and should state this on their web site. We would never stay in this KOA again. - jeffnbarb

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

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

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

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

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 a nice place to stay. There was plenty of shade and it was quiet. - rvingwithfam

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

Very nice park. Best in area by far. Some roads into area are quite narrow but doable. Beautiful wooded area. - Nick2

This turned out to be a very nice campground at a great price (and no separate park entry fee like so many other state parks). The sites are very wide with lots of space between neighbors, concrete pads and patios, picnic table, fire ring, and grass lawns. The campground is pretty heavily wooded with a very nice feel. There's one walking trail (paved) from the campground, and other hiking trails within the state park, so we always had places to walk our dog. We were able to fit our 38-foot motorhome and tow car in site #10 but had to back up pretty far in the site so the back of the motorhome hung over the grass. It might be tough to fit a 45-foot motorhome with tow car into any of the sites, but not impossible. With no water and sewer hookups, we used the campground showers which were OK but not great. The shower heads are mounted very low on the walls (at about nose-height for me, and I'm 5' 9") so lots of ducking was necessary to take a shower. Sometimes the water was reasonably hot, sometimes only warm. There's only one lane at the dump station (it's a fairly small campground) so some patience is needed when arriving (to fill your tank) and departing (to dump). There are a few water spigots located throughout the campground but none close enough to our site for us to fill from. The campground has free WiFi that worked surprisingly well! It was fast most of the time, and usable the whole time, but it's worth noting that the campground was only about 1/3 full in October. Our Verizon and AT&T also worked fine. Supermarkets and other shopping are not too far away. We would return here. - LifeRebooted

We loved this park for the quiet and spacious sites. We had a 50 amp site which worked well, but was on the main entry road. We were there during a heavy thunderstorm so having a paved raised pad saved us from soggy ground. The remainder of our site was grass and dirt. There were numerous walking trails which allowed dogs on leash. The dump station was convenient and clean. We would stay again in one of the loops off of the entry road. - bbmidwife

Average. OK for 1 night. Pricey. Sites were very close together. Other campers parked vehicle across the road making backing a trailer into the site mostly a precision movement. - ebaldy

The staff were friendly but this park is showing its age. The showers were downright terrible with mold in all of the shower stalls near the pool. There are a couple of mobile homes right in front of the place and we saw shady looking characters entering and leaving them. I suspect that they have had some trouble in the past because they require campsite issued tags for each vehicle, visitors included. - Bdavis2900

Ok, this park probably deserves a 5-4, but to charge for internet service (via Tengo) and then it doesn't work and they don't seem to care ("it's been down all day, not sure why"), is simply not acceptable. Internet today is the 4th utility and for full timers it is more important than cable. Also, this park is terribly noisy with freeway noise. Sure, people are nice, but I will never come back. - MarkD

The location of Cahokia RV Parque is great for going into St. Louis; Gateway Arch is visible from a distance. The owner and hosts are very nice and helpful. There is a restaurant on site that has a good reputation, but we did not eat there. The pool was covered because it was not open yet for the season, however it appeared to be a good size and had a nice concrete patio. Bathrooms are very clean and spacious. Laundry was cramped; offers 2 front load washers and 4 dryers and as a convenience propane is sold on location. There is a pavilion that crosses over a pond, but the pond is almost dry. The roads are asphalt and the sites are gravel with a little grass and there is a concrete patio and wooden picnic tables at each site. The utilities were in good working order. However, overall the park itself is filled with permanent residents and some of the trailers are junk. The sites are very close together; our back end was about 8 ft. from the back end of our neighbors. Side to side we had about 20 ft between trailers. Our site was a back in and was rather difficult to get into because of the lack of space both on the site and because trucks all along the road had to parallel park. This park is nothing to write home about, but is good for a one or two night stay. - the Fishers
Oct 2016 - $44.00
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

This is actually more of a mobile home park that is masquerading as a RV park. As near as I can tell, when a mobile home is removed for whatever reason they turn the slab into a RV slot. The mobile homes are stacked in tight. This is not the place you go for a vacation. But since there are not too many RV parks in the St. Louis area, this is the kind of place you go to if you are working in, or visiting the area and just need a place to park. Call as you pull up and a caretaker will meet you at the entrance. Didn't have any problems, but would only go back if I had to have a place to stay. - Dave Cole
