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

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

This is a fabulous state park!! First, it is in a pristine part of the suburbs. If you are interested in staying in a first rate park while you visit St. Louis, this is the place to go *if* you have a separate car to get around in. (We were surprised at the paucity of private parks in St. Louis.) It is only a 20-30 minute drive to the city depending on where you are going. Plus you are going through beautiful, upscale enclaves.
Shade is **very** important to us and it's frustrating to try and find out how much shade there really is when all you have to go on are limited reviews and thumbnail pictures on a government website. (We have an English bulldog, a breed not well suited for the heat.)
So, in service to my fellow RV'ers who also crave the shade, here's the lowdown:
I drove through the park at two different times of day (11am and 6pm) to determine which spots had full shade. I consider "full shade" to be when the pad and ~ 2-3ft of the perimeter of the pad have at least 90% shade. Spots that had full shade at both times of day were as follows:
8, 17, 19, 20, 37, 39, 44, 46, and 49.
There were a couple of spots that had what I considered "excessive shade". These spots were particularly lush, green, and covered by a canopy of trees.
At 11AM, the excessively shady spots were 17 and 46.
At 6pm, the excessively shady spot was 39.
**Only spot #37 was excessively shady at both times of day** so it is effectively the shadiest spot in the entire park for RV camping.
Spot #13 is next to a trailhead so there is more foot traffic and less privacy at that spot.
Also, there is a vast lawn space with well-cut grass between sites 20 and 21. This area is perfect for football, soccer, Frisbee, etc.
Showers were clean. There are ice and wood for sale at the main office. The camp hosts were helpful but not nosy.
We will definitely look forward to staying here again! - GearDown

Our rate was based on a 7 night stay. Beautiful State park. This park is HUGE, so if you like to hike, there are literally miles of trails within the park bounderies. Biking is a challenge, as several of the roads have extremely steep hills, so not good for old guys... Sites are very spacious. We had a 50 amp electric only site. Best thing about this park is that it's very quiet. Driving time to the Arch area is about 35 minutes. Shopping is not close, so be prepared to drive every time you need supplies.
If you want peace and quiet, with very spacious heavily treed sites out in the woods, then this is the park for you. - AlaskaJack

Nice State Park near St. Louis. Electric only hookups worked well on our 50 amp site. Camp hosts maintain a nice clean campground. Mix of shaded and open sites. No parking on grass is enforced and the results show - no muddy areas next to camp pads or roads. Lots of nice grassy areas.
Pads were concrete of varying shapes and sizes. Electric hookups were located properly.
Be careful of two of the campsite "loops" as they have a very small cul-de-sac for turning around at the end. My 35' 5th wheel was challenging to turn around at the end of the 50 amp premium loop. Many large Class A rigs were able to turn around. That loop actually had mostly Class A rigs in it.
The 30 amp loop had a large turnaround area and had sites with the most open grassy spaces for kids to run around. - eb145

The park is open and easy to get to. It is right off 370 in St. Peter's. Our site was level and walking out onto a concrete pad was convenient. There was no noise to speak of and the 4.5 mile walk around the lake is easy. - Esse

A very nice clean city park. Sites are crushed asphalt so there is no problem with limestone track into the RV. There are paved trails throughout the park and around the lake. Bike and boat rentals are available. There is easy access from highway 370 and 24 hour check in. Staff is friendly and efficient. We will stay here again. - Ernie & Toni

Very easy in/out of park and site. Back in sites have good angle. Utilities placed well and worked well. WiFi worked pretty well. Nice paved path goes around lake and right by campground. None paved sites have crushed old blacktop versus gravel. Sites are long and fairly well spaced apart. Concrete patio with picnic table at each site. Definitely would stay here again. - cwier

If you enter the Park from the south, it is quite a long, but beautiful, drive to the campground. Some steep hills but all good paved roads. We stayed in the electric only area on a Friday night. All sites were full but we didn't feel crowded. Good showers not far away and nice walking trails down to and along the lake. - oldmac

The camping park is nice , clean, well spaced sites although trees and vegetation between sites is sparse. It has a city park green space appeal to it. I like more woods and privacy but this was fine and we like full hookup so it was a trade off. It is a Basic campground. The river is not actually a river, it's a U shape small lake with lots of cussing, drinking locals yelling at their kids. Seemed like a local hang out. A small fee for use would solve that problem. The lake was filthy, my son looked like he had a 5 o clock shadow on his face. I heard this is unusual and may be due to extreme rain storms that month. - User3173

Our first time camping here in many years, and we had a very pleasant midweek stay. Previous reviewers have commented about the steep hills which we also experienced on our way in. However, after talking to a frequent camper to the park, we found out about another route. We decided to go out this way. The park can be entered from Hwy KK from the north, and these hills weren't quite so windy and steep! We'll definitely return next time this way, even though it is longer. The campground has four loops, each with a different flavor. The most woodsy and private are the two loops that have basic sites with no hookups. At the end of each of these is a long staircase (100+ steps) that descends to "Lake Lincoln" and the foot trail that encircles it. If you hike counter clockwise from the campground you come to the beach area. The basic sites area has water spigots throughout and a vault toilet at the end of one of the loops. A third loop has electric only, and these sites are a little less private, but shaded nonetheless. This is where the only shower house is located, and the 3 pull throughs. There is a gate at the end of this loop that separates the general campground from the scout area-- at the end of this loop is a third staircase down to the lake, and the most direct walking route to the beach. The fourth loop is laid out on a grid, the sites are more densely packed, but these sites are full hookup. This area does not have a showerhouse, but does have flush toilets. The dump station is located in this area. The restrooms were cleaned daily, and the hosts showed up to pick up and check sites after people checked out. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Our rate reflects a $2/night handicapped discount and was for an electric only site. - midcenturynana

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

Concrete pads nice & large with a patch of grass, NO TREES! NO SHADE whatsoever. Laundry clean with several machines, $1.50 wash, .25 dryer. Right next to Katy Trail & Missouri River. Downtown about 10 minutes by car but also by trail. Lots of nice shops & restaurants in town. No pool. - Hulda
Jun 2016 - $53.00
Good news you are on concrete. Bad news is so are a lot of long term guests and they like to park in the road. Navigating what should be wide streets becomes a driving test in a narrow alley. Plus just a lot of activity with vehicles coming and going. It is OK and would stay again just wish park would enforce their rules. - peddy dick

Just a concrete pad with grass strips between the spaces. Still, this is campground has a couple features that almost elevate it to the "Good" category. First, it's very close to old St. Charles, which is a charming area with shops and restaurants. Second, it abuts the Katy Trail State Park, which provides a couple hundred miles of biking and walking, including a connection to St. Charles. On the other hand, it is very expensive for a parking spot ($59 without the discount) and there is an elevated train track that runs right next to (nearly over) the campground. - Kaz

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 camped there at the peak of Fall colors right before Halloween. Most sites are gravel with ample room for slides. Within walking distance to the Illinois River, and close to Grafton, IL. Plenty of things to do close by, or travel down, the River Road along the Mississippi River to Alton, IL. The only issue was the green firewood we purchased there. It was way too green to light easily, but other campers helped us by donating some of their seasoned sticks. We'll stay there again and do more sightseeing north. - gfarmcafe

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

We stayed here for a friend who had there wedding here. It's clean, with lots of things to do, especially for the kids. We didn't have good weather and I was sick, so we didn't use much of the parks amenities. The sites are kind of small and close together. Ours wasn't very level. It's not our kind of place, but it's clean. - jstrom
