Stayed 1 night with 1 child and 1 dog. Park was very clean and very easy to park (pull-through). Utilities were in better shape than most with two septic hookups. However, the campground was mostly concrete with little grass or trees. The dog area is a long walk away, as is the playground - both are offsite. You could not let children go alone, it was too far and they had to cross traffic. We camped at Sundermeier RV Park in a Motorhome.
Tips for other Campers:
The campground advertises it is in "Historic St. Charles" but no information on any surrounding area was provided.
Very friendly check-in staff. Easy pull in and setup for our 40' rig. They have done away with cable but our antenna picked up 25 channels. They have upgraded Wi-Fi and stated we could stream movies, we didn't try. Very clean park and located next to Katy Trail walking/biking trails and city playground. Train and airplane noise was noticeable but not terrible. Train did block antenna reception when passing. We camped at Sundermeier RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.
Tips for other Campers:
Trader Joe's is 17 minute drive. Enjoyed a drive down historic St Charles.
They do not have anything to offer except full hook up - they do not offer cable TV service, stated that the provider did not renew - no pool, just a walking trail by the county/state which is close to the rear of the park. Easy in and out, city of St. Charles is a great place to walk around and have some good food. Price is high for what you get. We camped at Sundermeier RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.
No shade, plus a heat wave. Staff extremely friendly and helpful. Unfortunately, cable has been discontinued, but they have very high speed internet and encourage movie streaming. Also, sadly, the restaurant is now closed. We camped at Sundermeier RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.
Tips for other Campers:
Best RV park nearby St. Louis and St. Charles. Large casino nearby as is launching spot for Lewis and Clark expedition.
The staff greeted me with a smile at check in. Nice, friendly and professional. Nice, big, clean level concrete pad. Fires are not permitted. No swimming pool, but a nice restaurant. Large grassy area to walk your dog. About 30 minute drive to St Louis. Would stay at park again. We camped at Sundermeier RV Park in a Motorhome.
Price is based on weekly rate. We stay at this park every couple years when visiting the St. Louis area. We still like the park. Pluses: Everything neat and clean, spacious level, concrete sites with grass between, nice city park and Missouri River through gate behind park, and of course convenient location in the St. Charles/St. Louis area. Downtown St. Louis is only 25 miles away. Minuses: High price, airplane and train noise, and not much in the way of amenities such as pool or playground. Wi-Fi worked well early in our stay when park was less than half full but seemed to slow down as the park got busier. Lot of cable channels, though bit of a hassle to pay a $35 refundable deposit to get a converter box to hook up to your TV. There are a lot of channels on the system, so we used their box for one TV and our satellite on the other. Large, clean laundry room. Restrooms/showers had no hot water the last four days of our stay. Folks we dealt with in the office were helpful and friendly. We camped at Sundermeier RV Park in a Motorhome.

For great barbecue try the Sugar Fire Smokehouse, 3120 Elm Point Industrial Drive (next exit west on MO-370.

This place is very hard to get into. Very narrow street leads to the office. Several people were parked in the street, waiting to check in-It looked like a caravan had come to stay! Checking in was quick and easy because we called ahead, but MAN! So expensive -the monthly rate of $800 plus $175 electricity deposit. Shew!
The first thing that struck me was that it looked like a parking lot! NO TREES and TONS of concrete! The pads were all concrete with about 5 feet of grass on either side. Its next to a river, the interstate, and a very busy train track! When the train comes by, forget about using your antenna or cable. And they seem to roll through all night long! You can hear the interstate noise non-stop.
There is a closed steakhouse on property. So disappointing!
And as there really wasn't any place for kids, who rode bikes or skateboards or just ran screaming up and down our street.
But they did have a very, very nice laundry room and restrooms.
But that's not good enough to justify the cost! We camped at Sundermeier RV Park in a Travel Trailer.
Tips for other Campers:
Further up I370 is a BBQ joint called Sugar Fire. Finally, actual decent smoked BBQ!

We have stayed here twice before but this time seemed like things are headed the wrong way. Check in was just Ok. The interior roads and pull throughs are still great however for big rigs. Convenient to east or westbound travel. Old town St Charles isn't what it used to be either. Our main issue however was with the cable TV system. Seems they don't have digital cable so they wanted to loan is a digital converter box to use the analog cable. To do so, I would have had to run a cable through a window and somehow connect it to the tv. Wouldn't happen or work. The box carries a $35 deposit. This is probably not completely the park's fault but the way they treated us and talked down to us about the situation was an insult that can't be overlooked. Seems like they should upgrade their system like other parks across the country or don't advertise they have cable. WiFi also was subpar so couldn't use it. We camped at Sundermeier RV Park in a Motorhome.

An urban private campground that is fine for an overnight stay. It's not the kind of camping experience I'd want for a long-term stay. It's relatively close to the quaint, historic area of St. Charles. The park is clean and quiet with concrete pads and good Wi-Fi. We camped at Sundermeier RV Park in a Motorhome.

We stayed two weeks and had a concrete pull thru site that was very nice. Highly recommend you stay in the areas away from the elevated train because it is a fairly active track at all hours of the day. In addition, the park is close to major Interstates and is on the flight path to Lambert Field airport so you will hear noise. Charter Cable supplies cable TV here and you will need to rent (refundable)a box for $35.00 and install it for good cable access.That all being said, we loved the 265 mile Katy Trail that passed right by the RV Park and gave excellent access to St Charles only 1.5 miles down the path. This park while a little pricey, was an excellent and convenient way to explore the St Louis and St Charles areas/exhibits. We camped at Sundermeier RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Due to a breakdown we were forced to stay here for 10 days. It is nothing more than a parking lot with hookups. It is advertised as having cable however the system they have requires that you place a deposit for a digital box. Having obtained the box I still could not receive cable and it took all of 5 days before finally a tech came and got it working. The owners are fully aware of the problem but say there is nothing they can do as they are under contract with the provider. Another issue with this park is the exceptionally HIGH WATER PRESSURE in excess of 100 PSI, our neighbor pulled in with a motor home hooked up and promptly ruptured his water lines due to not having a pressure reducer, no-one apparently told him about it and he did not read the notice. A lot of noise from freight trains going past all night plus the highway also did not make our stay pleasant. The park is convenient to St. Charles and St. Louis however I would not stay here again.

A very clean campground with concrete roads and wide pads. About 5 or 6 feet grass areas between very level sites. The office person was nice and helpful. Restrooms and showers were exceptionally clean. No cable unless you gave a $35 deposit for a converter. We were starting out before the office opened the next morning so had to use our TV antenna receiving a few local networks. The restaurant near by had closed down. The "activity room" only had couches. Our nightly rate reflects a Good Sam discount. We felt the price was way too much for the stay. We camped at Sundermeier RV Park in a Travel Trailer.
They list the campgrounds as "award winning". For what? The campgrounds were neat and clean and the pads were extra wide (double actually). The grass was mowed and the services were available (water, sewer, electric). The not so nice details are the noise. The campgrounds is located very near MO 370 which is 6 lanes wide at that point and busy. OK, campers are used to campgrounds near highways. I can't call that a negative or a positive so it's a neutral. But, there's a busy freight rail line that's between the highway and the campgrounds! If that isn't bad enough, how about being in-line with the St Louis airport runways 4.5 miles away? That's not enough for you? How about a park owner that allows one camper to have 5 dogs in an outside pen on their campsite? You get the picture. Would I return? Definitely not. We camped at Sundermeier RV Park in a Motorhome.
Park is located approximately 28 miles from downtown St. Louis. The pads are concrete, level and a generous size. Neighbors are somewhat close, but no problem putting your awning out. Our rig is almost 44' and we had plenty of space to park it plus our tow. Check-in personnel were friendly and efficient. We didn't use the laundry or showers, but the building looked clean and well cared for. Only drawback was the price and lack of amenities. There is no pool and the restaurant on site was closed. Easy on and off from the highway. WiFi was included in the price and worked well. We camped at Sundermeier RV Park in a Motorhome.
We utilized this park last year in June and found it to be very nice but pricey. Since we enjoy Historic St Charles we decided to visit again this year. It appeared the grass hadn't been mowed for some time and the trash dumpsters were overflowing despite the park being less than half full. Upsetting was the new requirement to access cable that required a $35 deposit and a 1/2 hour phone call to activate it. The location is outstanding for Katy trail and Old Saint Charles.
