Nice park about 40 minutes from downtown St. Louis. Located inside a county park on a lake with hike/bike trails, fishing etc. Gravel pull thru and back in 30/50 amp full hookup sites. Wifi reaches a little bit of the park but most have to go to the office. Cell service good. Would definitely stay here again! - teepee51

Great park next to the water, easy on/off 370. City park, would definitely stay again, or if visiting St Louis. - FOSJ

Good overnight stop. An easy on/off the highway. We choose site 115 since it was their longest pull-thru site, to best allow us to stay hooked-up overnight. Their pull-through sites are 60-76 feet long. The turning radius to enter site 115 was a little tight for us, but doable. Ultimately the site was not level enough front-to-back to allow us to stay hooked-up overnight, so we would likely choose a shorter "non-premium" site during a future stay. The non-premium sites cost $5 less and they should be easier for longer RVs to pull into (i.e., the "premium" sites are closest to the water, but since they are at the end of the row you need to make a sharp U-turn to enter the pull-through site, if you want the hook-ups to be on the correct side of the RV). - 2FullTimersinaFifth

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

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

This park is more for people who want to camp out in tents. The place is very run down, with drain pipes falling off buildings, and mud holes everywhere. I would not stay here again. - roboy

Not a nice place and, overpriced for what it was. Looks like an old trailer park. Nasty bathrooms. Would not recommend this place. - Fancynancy1213

The campground is conveniently located near the historic St. Charles
downtown district. Access to the park was straight forward off 370. Sites are all concrete, approximately 18' wide with plenty of length for both the rig and tow vehicle. For us though, the place had the feel of a huge parking lot with little strips of grass separating the sites. Water pressure is very high and the park advises using a regulator. The 50a electric was stable with good voltage. There are two sewer ports available making it convenient for both trailers and coaches. Site width is about 25'. The park is pretty much wide open with no trees, good for those with satellite dishes. Over the air TV reception was very good with 27 channels picked up. Our 4g hotspot had a strong signal and the park's Tengointernet wifi was very good, in fact the manager said it could handle streaming. A raised railroad tressel carries a number of trains that can be clearly heard. Traffic noise from 370 is not offensive. Overall the park was clean and kept up. Given that there isn't much else in the line of amenities, the price is a bit high for similar parks but probably ok for visiting the St. Charles area. - Born2Roam

This park is in a "sketchy" part of town, however; very easy access from 370. We needed an overnight the office was closed. The map on the office window wasn't great. The concrete pad wasn't perfectly level. - mecicon

Pros: Pretty easy to navigate. Large park-over 100 sites. Used to be a nice restaurant in the park but they haven't been able to find a new buyer. Train is close, so you will hear it a couple times/night. May be a deterrent but I love the sound as it fades away. Behind the park is a very extensive park systems with information signs, a trail close to the river view, children friendly with several playgrounds. Walking path doubles as a long biking path. Great for us and our labs.
Cons: Mr. Tom could be a little more friendly in the office but he gets the job done! - WendyR

Located across the street from the Illinois River, this is a lovely park that offers great views of the barge activity. It also has a Visitors Center and Lodge. The lodge was built by the CCC and in the great tradition of these lodges worth visiting. The restaurant in the lodge is adequate but there are better choices in the town of Grafton. The lodge also has a wine tasting which was fun. The CG is very clean however many of the sites are out in the open - a consideration in summer, and not very level. Our site had a tree offering some shade and electric. Water and a Dump Station is available. Camp Hosts were most helpful and appreciated their advice during some inclement weather. - Breezy2

Great state park; spacious sites, grass, trees, quiet and relaxing!
30 & 50 amp sites, gravel, but no water hookups; you will need to fill your tank at one of several community spigots, and then dump at the dump station. - Scott - Chris

This is a great state park. VERY family orientated. Nearby CCC constructed Lodge offers bar and restaurant services. Campground is adjacent to the Great River Road bike path. Close to Grafton wineries & tourist activities and ferry to Calhoun County, IL - go for lunch. Park also offers hiking trails, horseback riding in season and marina on IL river. Half of sites may be reserved, other half first come, first served. But, if you want a weekend site, get there by early afternoon on Friday or you're out of luck. Go and enjoy the experience. - 15243

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
Aug 2014 - $76.00
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

This park has mostly long-term residents with a few very unkempt units. Dog etiquette is not enforced so feces may be anywhere. Most sites have side by side hookups. Interior roads are a terrible with very lumpy pavement but sites are of good concrete with attached concrete patio areas and of adequate length for big rigs. The sites are not necessarily level from side to side but they are smooth. Picnic tables and fire rings are provided. Utilities are reliable but water pressure is somewhat low and Wi-Fi is sluggish. AT&T phone and data reception are functional. The park is in a quiet rural setting and the owners are friendly. The rate is monthly. - never settled

The campground is in need of many things. There is no website or means for reservation. Called the owner and says “Yep, we have a space for ya, we’ll be waitin’”. No deposit, no name, no confirmation, just come on in. Nobody to greet us when we arrived (about 3:00) so we just found a space and set up. We did not actually register or pay (cash or check only) until the next afternoon. A little too casual for a business. It’s out in a rural area, so no big city noise, which was nice, but it’s a ten mile drive to anything. The roads are various layers of asphalt with many potholes, a real mess; creeping speed only. Overhead branches need to be trimmed to accommodate larger RV’s in the front sites, the rear sites have smaller trees. While we were there we had issues with birds (Starlings) trying to build nests under the coach. Decent spacing between sites with grass. Concrete pad (in fair condition) for RV and picnic table (tables are in poor condition). Fire rings at most sites. Mail/UPS service is odd. All items are delivered to a house down the road regardless of how they are addressed. No cable, but decent over the air channels from St. Louis. Free WiFi running at about 3.0 mbps. Good enough for non-HD streaming. The laundry building is part of the club house which is in rather poor condition. The laundry machines are old and very tired. Machines are $1.25 each. The shower/restroom building had been recently demolished so a new one could be built. No events organized by the park. Most campers are long term and keep to themselves. The overall opinion of this park is that there is little to attract campers and not much for kids to do. The owners barely keep up with basic maintenance and almost nothing for improvements. The park will probably close once the owner is gone. If you’re looking for a cheap, quiet, off the beaten path campground then this is it. But remember, you get what you pay for. We will find somewhere else next time. - Wiyndog

This park is occupied mostly by long term workers staying in the area. Interior roads are very poor and the bathrooms are terrible. Most sites are pull-through with concrete pads. Utilities, including WiFi are very good. The park is surrounded by pastures and is quiet except for the sound of sheep. Amenities include a club house, laundry, fishing pond and very limited playground equipment. Not a vacation destination but we would stay here again for a base in the area. - never settled
Oct 2016 - $49.00
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
