This campground rates right up with the very good state park campgrounds in the Denver Metro area IMHO. It is very convenient to I-70 via 370, offers very nice spacing between rigs, and is within 4 miles of major shopping areas should you need to replenish passing through the western St Louis area. We stayed here two years ago when it was nearly brand new and not much has changed. The Wi-Fi is capable of making this post but a bit limited. Park is open year round. There are no trees offering shade in the campground, which may be a consideration is summer months. Sunsets however are gorgeous and with the fee you pay you are offered access to other St Peter's city facilities. It's hard to find a spot of this quality near a large metro area. We camped at St. Peters' 370 Lakeside Park in a Motorhome.

I can't believe the relatively low ratings and critical comments people have made about this park. Come on people, it is a rather nice municipally-run RV park located in the heart of a major metro area and it only costs $40/night total for a FHU pull-through! The roads are paved, the sites are gravel and are quite a bit wider than the standard for privately-operated RV parks and it is very easy to maneuver and get into your site. The park is hidden from view and the noise of the highway is blocked by a berm. Check-in was very professional and we were given an information package that included material about St. Peters and the surrounding area. Campers at the park are permitted to use other St. Peters facilities (pool complex, golf course, etc) at reduced-price resident rates. There is a very visible security presence provided by Rangers. There is even a free wifi, although it is slow and purposely not designed for streaming. This place is an absolute gem and we will use it whenever we come to visit family in the area. But plan in advance and make reservations; it was totally full the weekend we were there. In summary, it's just a flat grass field with hookups and a view of a small man-made lake, but it has location, location, location and it's a lot better than the alternatives. We camped at St. Peters' 370 Lakeside Park in a Motorhome.

The rate reflects a weekly stay. Signage was excellent; location was handy. Check-in was easy and comprehensive with knowledgeable staff. The roads are paved and the pads are packed gravel and ours was nice and level. The amount of green space between sites was really, really nice. The trees are growing and the view of the lake and hike/bike trail was good. Recycling was easily available; water pressure was good. Verizon and Sprint worked well. We were able to have campfires. There are lots of things to do close by; we would have no problem staying here again. We camped at St. Peters' 370 Lakeside Park in a Motorhome.

Stayed here for a week to visit St. Louis with 3 kids. It is a nice park but would be better if the playground was more than a swing and there was some type of swim beach or pool. We did take advantage of the local rec center at resident prices though. My kids loved their pool and would recommend you do that if you stay here with kids. Also you can't miss City Museum if you have kids. Overall a nice safe place to stay with kids and still convenient to St. Louis. We camped at St. Peters' 370 Lakeside Park in a Travel Trailer.

Excellent location close to the city and shopping but in the country. Just off highway 370, but the levy blocks noise and view of the park. Archery, hiking, biking, kayaking, and fishing. Laundry and clean restrooms. 24/7 patrol by city park rangers. Only drawback is trees are saplings, so no shade. We camped at St. Peters' 370 Lakeside Park in a Motorhome.

A bit pricey for a state park, but kept up very nice. The "lake" is man-made and depressingly low water level. Did not see anyone taking a boat out or fishing in this boring lake. There are no trees in the park. It is clear-cut. A 3 mile paved trail around the lake makes for a nice walk/bike ride. Security car literally circles the campground every 10 minutes 24/7 and gets a bit annoying. I suggest they eliminate this and reduce their prices. Speed limit signs of "7" mph are also annoying. A quiet retreat close to city conveniences. Very nice motor homes and such staying here; no riff-raft. Also, the "Gator Grill" they advertise is not a restaurant, but a food truck that was closed the whole 3 weeks we stayed here. We camped at St. Peters' 370 Lakeside Park in a Motorhome.

This is a county park - just recently opened. Not much shade but good place for an overnight stay (and if the weather is nice, an extended stay) to see the attractions of St. Louis. However, it is in a flood plain so beware. Staff was very friendly. We camped at St. Peters' 370 Lakeside Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Very good park for an overnight stay. They had just finished a festival on the site, so there was a great deal of cleanup going on, but in spite of that it was very quiet. Seems fairly new. The only issue was that there were a number of "drive through" gawkers that ignored the "campers only" signs and just showed up driving around the park. They need to close off the section for camping to keep people from off the main road from just wandering in. The showers were very clean, though the water wasn't particularly warm. We camped at St. Peters' 370 Lakeside Park in a Travel Trailer.

good maintenance, nice folks running the place, this is a city park. Built on a flood plane, flat as a pancake with no shade. Was 2' underwater two weeks before our stay and only the dead grass showed problem. Back-in spots $35, pull through $40 except close to lake is $5 more, but campground not that big to make a difference. Street lights near road and bathhouse, so farther toward lake is darker. Bathhouse has coin washers & dryers. Nice and clean. We camped at St. Peters' 370 Lakeside Park in a Motorhome.

Park is being developed in an area between flood-control dikes as part of a city park. Has a nice lake next to the camping area. On arrival, noticed that the grass was sparse and mud-covered. Talked with the ranger who said that the area was underwater a couple of weeks before due to flooding, They have done a good job of recovery. Few trees in the camping area so no shade. Park is probably 30 miles from downtown St Louis. It is close to the historic area of St Charles. Recommend it. Overall, good park for a short visit, but not a destination park.

Price reflects a "premium" (up close to the lake) back in site price for full hookups. Campground has great access to highway 370 and close to highway 70. There are plenty of restaurants and malls and things to do if you are not there just to camp. Check in station is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week with a small "store" selling items. Beer, soda water and ice were also sold on site. You can rent bikes, canoes,and paddle boats. Fishing is allowed all day and night if camping and there is a boat ramp on the opposite side of the lake. There were also about 4 miles of paved bike trails to bike or walk on. Sites were level made of a broken up pavement material. There were a few paved sites, but I think they were for handicapped only. Security officers, along with Park Rangers, were around all the time and would answer any questions or needs that you may have. Park is in the beginning stages but really shows a lot of potential to be a top notch park in the area. We camped at St. Peters' 370 Lakeside Park in a Travel Trailer.

The park was very convenient to 1-70, which was a huge plus. The park was okay for an overnight stay. Nothing special here but the sites were level and the park was patrolled by rangers, as this is a city park. No trees, but a nice walking path by the lake. I would camp here overnight again.

Very nice county park next to a lake. It has a marina with paddle boat and kayak rentals available. Boat ramp for your own boat. All sites are level and good sized - about 15x75 gravel with 20' of grass between sites. No shade due to it being new. Some have been planted but won't have shade for 5 to 10 years. Each site has fire ring with cooking grate and picnic table. A few handicap sites are available with concrete pads. Laundry has 2 washers and dryers. There's a paved path around the lake for hiking/biking. WiFi is ok, a little slow with just a few people here. Verizon and TV reception is excellent. Small store at the ranger station with mostly snack items. Easy access from I-70, about 3 miles from the interstate over new roads. We camped at St. Peters' 370 Lakeside Park in a Motorhome.

The shower stalls have plenty of hooks and room. The only downside is you have to keep pushing a button to keep the water going. The restrooms are set up for handicapped, but I'm not sure how sticking a hand dryer between two sinks qualifies as helpful. There are some concrete pads for handicapped campers near the shower house. Other sites seem to be made from ground up asphalt. The utilities work well and are situated in the middle of the sites. The rate is for a back in site. I would stay at this park again if it was short term. There is a nice paved loop around the lake. We camped at St. Peters' 370 Lakeside Park in a Travel Trailer.
