This is a small campground located just off of the main strip (behind Ripley's Believe It or Not). The campground it located on a fairly steep hill and tight turns had our trailer skid plates touching the pavement. The sites are gravel and the roads are paved. It is a fairly tight squeeze into the sites and even though our site was technically a pull through I found it was better to back out of the site and turn back out the main entrance rather than trying to make a tight turn forward up a gravelly hill and squeeze beside some trees. A couple of pull-thru sites at the top of the campground would be easier to get out of. The $15/day is a Passport America rate and includes 30A electricity (50A for an additional fee). There is free cable and free Wi-Fi, although I found the Wi-Fi very inconsistent and dropped out regularly. The park staff are very nice and helpful. There is an outdoor pool (seasonal) that looks very nice. The laundry facilities are very clean. The campground is walking distance to many attractions. Noise at the park is not too bad considering it's proximity to the main strip.
The $14/day is a Passport America rate. The sites and roads are gravel and fairly level and long. The staff were friendly and helpful. We were just passing through the area and only stayed 1 night. The one main down side to this campground was the noise... there are train tracks and a Highway passing right beside the campground. The noise did ease up somewhat at night, but at one point when we were setting up I found myself yelling at the top of my lungs just to speak to someone across the driveway. Except for the noise it is a clean and affordable campground. There is propane on site.
We spent two nights camping at the Casino Queen RV Park in East Saint Louis, Illinois on October 28/29, 2008. The RV Park is divided into two sections. One section is fully paved, and the other is paved with a grass area between sites. At the time we were there the fully paved section had been shut down for the season and only the grassy section was open. The fees for the fully paved section are usually about $6 less than that of the grassy section, however since we were there during the fall season the fees for the grassy section were reduced to the lower price ($29.65/night... $26.70 with Good Sam discount... other discounts exist). Weekly and monthly rates are available. When you check in they also give you coupons... two $5 coupons (for driver and navigator) and a 35% off coupon for the gift shop. When we went to the casino and presented the $5 coupons along with player cards they simply gave us the cash. The RV Park also has a small mini-mart which is VERY well stocked. Security at the park was very good with a manned gate at night and vehicles regularly circling within the park. The park is fenced in. There is laundry facilities at the park although we didn't use it. I believe there are pool/exercise room facilities at the hotel that RV guests can use (but I'm not 100% sure). The RV Park is very nice. All sites are fairly level paved and long providing 20/30/50A electric, water, sewer, cable and Internet (phone) hookups. There are a half-dozen picnic areas along the middle of the park with BBQ's. There were also a couple of small playgrounds for the kids. There are trains and transit in the area, and there is some noise from these, but not too bad. The RV park is located just to the east of the river and you can see the Gateway Arch. Travel into Saint Louis is easy, and the park will provide shuttle to the transit if desired in addition to the casino. The casino is really not far away and could easily be walked. We did not get the opportunity to eat at the casino,s buffet, but it looked good and very clean. In fact the entire casino was very new looking. The casino is not huge, but they had three $5 craps tables open when I was there among other table games. I think the number of slot/video poker machines is where the casino may be a little small. After playing $5 craps in the casino for about 3 hours and then an hour of 5cent multi-line video poker the casino comped one of our night's stay. This was a pleasant surprise considering the cheap treatment we have received at other casinos lately. The casino and RV park staff were all very friendly and helpful. One other note to make... we were packing up our 5th wheel and getting ready to hookup the truck when I decided to check the air pressure in the air-bags on the truck. One of the valves seized up and would not hold air. I checked with the staff at the RV Park to ask if they knew where I might go to and get a replacement valve core. She quickly got on the phone and had a gentleman from the casino's vehicle repair department come to our rescue. He not only brought us the necessary valve stem tool, but also a new valve core. We were up and running again within 45 minutes. I can't say enough good things about our treatment at this park.
This is a classic example of 'you get what you pay for'. We were only looking for a campground to stop at for 1 or 2 nights and we found this campground via the Passport America website. The price was cheap enough and when we got there we found out why. The first problem was finding a site where the electric hookups were wired correctly. Almost all of them were not grounded and the exposed wiring was scary. The pull through sites are fairly large and level grassy sites. there are also some newer concrete pad back-in sites, however I did not find the wiring to be any better. We setup and the next big issue was that there were several loose dogs roaming around the campground who were not friendly to our dog to say the least. After knocking on several resident trailer doors we were told that the dogs belonged to the owner who was not at the campground that night. After a tag-team approach to getting the dog outside we settled in for the night and logged on to the free Wi-Fi (hughes net satellite) which was good for about 1 hour then it went down and never came back again. We bugged-out first thing in the morning and I cannot recommend this campground.
This is without a doubt the cleanest and best organized campground we have ever stopped at. It is located far enough off the Interstate that it is fairly quiet. All sites are huge concrete pads with side concrete patios. The roads are paved and between the sites is gravel with desert grasses and bushes. The free Wi-Fi is excellent and there is free cable too. They also provide free laundry in three very clean restroom/shower/laundry pavilions. There is also a clubhouse with multiple televisions, a book exchange, shuffle-board, workout room and more laundry machines. There is an outdoor pool and two hot tubs (seasonal). The staff members are very nice and helpful. All types of shopping are only a 5-10 minute drive away. We stayed during the fall off-season when rates were $25/day ($150/week). There is propane on site.
If you want the feeling of coming home, Rusty’s RV Ranch in Rodeo, New Mexico gives you that feeling. The owners are very friendly & helpful and take real pride in their quiet park. The campground is located in a valley with spectacular 365 degree scenic views of the Chiricahua and Peloncillo Mountains surrounding you... fabulous, colorful sunsets and sunrises. The campsites are huge (1/4 acre) that gives you privacy and the sensation of the vastness of the area. The Wi-Fi is very fast and free. The washroom and laundry room are very clean. Stargazing is magnificent, not a lot of lights to harm your view. A very pet friendly RV Park with a great area to run your dog freely. The only downside to this place is it's proximity to amenities, so stock up on propane and supplies before coming because Wal-Mart is about 60 miles away and propane is about 15 miles away. This is our second year staying at this RV Park and it did feel like coming home. The daily rate was $12/day plus $2/day for electricity when using Passport America ($24/day regular rate).
