Dennis Dean: The think the Casino Queen is much better than the Cahokia RV unless the Cahokia has updated their park since we were there. Many RVers use the Casino Queen so it must be doable. Future years we stayed at Babler State Park. Our family lives in St. Louis so that's the reason we returned there.

I have stayed at both St. Louis RV Park and Casino Queen many times. The rest of the campgrounds are quite away. In my opinion, (and I am not a casino fan), Casino Queen is the best. The security is solid, and the neighborhood at St. RV Park is just as bad. They do have a police station across the street, but all you hear is sirens. Lastly, Casino Queen has real nice pads, St. Louis RV park has terrible terrain and uneven.

we've stayed at the Cahokia park a couple of times. not much to look at but the folks are friendly and the neighborhood is way better than the St Louis RV Park. if it's a choice between Cahokia, the casinonor the SLRVP I would go with Cahokia. but the other parks that were mentioned seem way nicer. we would rather be safer and further out than close in and anxious.

I'd go with Babbler State Park. It's worth the 30-40 minute drive downtown. We live in the western suburbs of St. Louis. Take I-44 downtown, it is less congested than I-64.

We stay at Sundermeier once or twice a year during a trip further west. Unfortunately, they closed their nice restaurant a few years back but a benefit is being located in historic St. Charles. It's a little too far to walk to their downtown, but we always find motorhome parking along the river road, or in the Louis & Clark museum parking lot.

Back to the OP: He won't be towing a vehicle and wants to stay near the Arch. This lets out many of the recommended places. Therefore, it's either St. Louis RV Park or Casino Queen.


Between the two, I'd recommend Casino Queen.

Casino Queen is great. We felt perfectly safe there. The Casino has tons of security but there is nearby train tracks that are active and could be annoying to some. When we stayed there, we used the Metro with no issues. Do not forget to tour Busch Stadium. It was a great tour at a reasonable price.

Update to My Post #11:

After reading this discussion, I've also made a reservation at Casino Queen. Now I'm going to dig in and determine what we are going to do while in St. Louis and make a decision as to which one to cancel.

Must admit that the discussion has me leaning to the Casino Queen. Dennis Dean points out some key attributes & the crime map is interesting. I think the metro line is going to be the key component as we want to take in a Cardinals game and this will allow us to leave the car behind & no parking hassle.

If you drive after you arrive there is a bridge right in front of the casino that shoots you downtown, the Eads bridge.
the zoo is great. Cahokia Mounds museum if you are into native American history. Will you be traveling with kids?
