I need to start by saying that there are those giant power lines that cut through the land across the lake. And if you're sensitive to those like I am, you don't want to stay here. However, if you're fine with giant power lines, the park itself is lovely. There is a lake which of course attracts several types of birds and likely other wildlife as well. A nice playground with a sand volleyball net and swings, which my son was very happy about. There is a lovely pavilion with picnic tables in the RV area, and they are very well maintained. The sites have full hook ups, are nice and spacious with full sun, and the water pressure is fantastic. The roads are VERY easy to navigate in any size rig, and there is plenty of space in the spot to park a tow vehicle. There's a lovely path around the lake to take a nice stroll and watch the ducks and geese. If it weren't for the power lines causing so much pain and fatigue for me, I'd love to stay here again. But alas, it is not to be. - chasmyn

Very nice park, as others have said. Nice size spaces with grass around gravel parking pads. Gravel was not super solid, jack pads are a good idea. Location is convenient to western suburbs and a fairly easy day trip into St. Louis. Far enough off the highway so noise is not a problem. Staff is young and very professional and friendly, better than sometimes found in city parks. Someone is in the office 24/7, kind of unusual. Verizon cell and internet worked here. Definitely my choice in this area. - JA1800

Stayed here for an overnight, and basecamp to drop the trailer so we could explore the city. Excellent little city park. Easy access from highway 370. About 35 minutes from downtown St. Louis. Close to nearby St. Charles for plenty of shopping options. Perfect for what we used it for. - Boondockdad

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

One of the better state parks. Good: nice pads and clean bathrooms Bad: The Missouri on-line reservation system has a two-night minimum. Convenient place if on your way into or out of St. Louis - about 30 minutes SE of town center. This is a clean, well-groomed and well-maintained park. Sites are well-spaced, and configured along a single road with trees along the outside and grass in the middle, so you don't have people behind you. There are also plenty of trees scattered through the campsites to provide shade. Asphalt roads and cement pads, very even and level. 75 reservable sites along three separate roads, of which 50 are electrical. No water or sewer at the individual sites, which can be inconvenient for long stays. Very quiet and peaceful. Verizon was 4G, 3 bars. One bathroom on our loop. Very clean and well-maintained. No heater or AC that I could tell. The bathroom was at the entry, so if you are at the end of the loop, a bit of a walk, which could be annoying in rain or summer heat. Our loop was about 50% occupied, mid-week in May. No laundry. Price averaged in at $25 for two nights -- $21 per night plus $8.50 reservation fee. We were at site 19, and I would definitely stay here again. - OlderGoat

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

The campgrounds is older but filled with ambiance. The morning sun reflecting off the lake is beautiful. When I needed help the maintenance man or a full time RVer helped gladly.
The Bathhouse has restrooms and showers, older yes but very clean. I noticed that needed maintenance is in progress. Lakes to fish, worn paths to walk around the back lake, wildlife to spot, an Eagle visited some days, quiet mostly, with quite a few full time RVers, travelers and the owners family this campground is homey & inviting. I enjoyed my stay & was sorry when it was time to go! - Patricia Ross

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

Sites were concrete with asphalt around them. Decently spaced, we didn't feel too close to our neighbors and had room to park our tow car next to the RV. Nice grassy areas around each site. Wide, easy to navigate roads, this RV park was well-kept and cared for. There were train tracks on a trestle nearby but it was no bother at all since the trains never blew their horns over the trestle. There was some air traffic but not enough to bother you in sleep either. And the location was great - right next to a playground with swings AND the Katy Trail, so trails to hike down for a nice walk. We actually stayed at another park after this we'd thought was closer than it was to our family, and we didn't like it as much as this one. We wished we'd just booked the whole week here and saved ourselves a move. Next time! We will definitely stay here again when we're next in the area. Water pressure was so good we had to use a regulator, too! - chasmyn

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: Gentleman could be a little more friendly in the office, but he gets the job done! - WendyR

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

Tried to visit this park in 2004 and it had been sold to land developers. We had camped there years ago and was a very nice park. About 7 years prior they had an accident concerning a deck collapsed while kids were dancing on it. Law suits followed and from what I understand, they couldn't keep it going and went downhill in a hurry. It wasn't long after they sold the facility. - tomlinda1944

Beautiful park and just an amazing lodge! The bike trails were very nice and stretched along the Mississippi River. It was a pull thru site and hanging out near the camper wasn't as nice as hanging out near the lodge. There was a dump tank near the camper, which was convenient to use. - BikerGuy

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

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

About 30% of KOA's I stay have a railroad nearby ... or you can hear one in the distance. This one has a freight line that runs over a bridge about 100 yards away from A31. My RV shook as each one passed, at least one an hour all night ... ouch! Otherwise a nice wooded park with Six Flags close, there were families with young children squealing while using the playground right next to A31. If I return I'll ask for sites A34 thru A45. - RVStudent

We made reservations early in the afternoon and were told the pull-thru sites for big rigs were almost all full and we got the last one. When we pulled in, there were several open sites that remained open until the time we pulled out the next morning (?). The roads were fairly narrow with tight turns but did not pose a problem for our 40' rig. Staff was friendly and we were escorted to our site. Our site was level gravel/grass, plenty wide enough for our slides and utilities were conveniently located. We did park our truck in front of the restrooms as instructed by our guide, since the site was a little short. We did not use the restrooms/showers but stopped in to check them out and they were great! The one by our site was small - 2 toilets and 2 showers - but extremely clean and well-kept. All utilities, including cable and wi-fi, worked well. The pool was just being opened but was nice-sized and very clean. There is a dog park but we didn't take the time to visit it. We come through this area fairly often and would definitely stay here again. - SandyA
