We just stayed about 30-40 minutes outside of St. Louis in St. Peters MO at 370 Lakeside Park. It's a city park and is very nice. Be forewarned, though, there is zero shade. It is on a lake with a walking/biking path around the lake. There are pull-thru & back-in sites. We would stay there again.

Sundermeier RV Park, St. Charles, MO. Next to the Katy Trail along the Missouri River, and walking distance to the point where Lewis and Clark launched their expedition.

We stayed a the KOA in Eureka. It was nice, clean and they put us in the back of the park with lots of shade in quiet area.

We would definately stay there again.

Hi Erlingiii,
I can suggest where not to stay. That would be the KOA in Granite City. It is north and east of St. Louis on the belt way. Staff is friendly. That is the only good thing. The place is basically an old CG catering to long term stays. Power is very poor. My power transformer was working very hard to keep VAC at 108 about a month ago. Very narrow sites. Dirt sites. Dust all over the place.

Ok.....sundameyer in st. Charles is expensive. &50. A day, or ... $580. A month plus electric, and very picky, but a nice park. The city park in st. Peters is about $38. a day, but no extended rate, so can be very expensive if you stay very long. These are Kind of what they call North area. I suggest not staying in Granite City, or the Casinos in the city. There's a few other parks around, but they're not except able (not nice). We stay in so. County in Fenton at Belleville Mobile Home & RV on 141. It's $400. A month. That's $340. for rent, and $60. for electric. Small, but descent place. One next store called Covered Bridge. About the same. Then there's Babler.....nice state park. There's a 18 or 20 day limit. There are some down highway 44 near Sixflags and beyond, a KOA, and Jelly Stone. I've gone through this a dozen times.

Thanks for all the info, we decided to camp at sundermier. We rented a 75 foot pad for 730 plus electric, I know it's expensive but it is a nice park very close to where I'm doing bussiness, my only complaint is no shade. The owners seem alright, the husband is a really nice guy, but the wife seems a little particular, she takes pride in her park, which I respect, but I feel a little as though I have to walk on egg shells. I would surely stay here again.

Go to the Dairy Queen up the street on 94 . My Grandaughter works there. Stop in Fast lane and look at the Classics they have.


Babler's is a 14 day limit.

I've stayed there many times myself, sometimes for months at a time. It is pricey, but there's really no competition. That Beef Eaters Rest. Is so, so. Your wife will love the old downtown St. Charles, many good resturants, and your close the casino. The owners are picky, earlier this year they had work campers there, Bill and his wife. Very nice. He worked the grounds, while she worked the office. There's a park across the street with a bike path.

By the way, if your going to be there is aug., usually around the third weekend, they have the Festival of the little Hills at the river front....a real big deal. it covers the entire river front park, and the whole main street for about a mile.
