We, too, always stay at Edmund Babler State Park. It's easy to get to downtown St. Louis but only try it between 9-3 or early Sunday morning!! I'm not sure of the campsite #'s but if you make reservations and can see a campground map, the sites in the righthand loop are the ones for big rigs. They are large, paved with manicured lawns and nicely spaced. Definitely don't try the lefthand loop with a big rig. It's a huge park for hiking or biking - absolutely beautiful.

Babler has a gate at night also.Only thing is they are not full service. No sewers but have a dump station. Can only stay a max of 14 days. I motorcycle ride thru the park all the time. Has a public pool in the park, not at the RV sites. Great place to stay. Take a lot of bug killer. It's in the woods.

Another vote for Babler State Park here. If you don't mind being a little out of town it's simply the best. Lots and lots of green and space. Hiking trails too. If you need pics of the park I've got them in my blog (just do a search for the park name). We camped there in our 40 footer plus toad.

We've been here for over 2 months (working), it normally takes us about 20-25 mins to get to the Arch. Add 5 mins to get to the zoo, Busch Stadium, botanical gardens, etc...

The place is clean and well kept, little noisy up front where we're at, because it is right along I55. The back, where the nightly/weekly sites are quieter. Sites are close but we've stayed at worse.

Can't comment on the bathroom/laundry because we use the coach for all that.

Very easy commute, in fact we're going back to the zoo on Sunday. Edwardsville is 3 miles away for food and shopping.
Good info

Here's another option Southwest of St. Louis in Eureka, MO: Jellystone - Jellystone Resort Six Flags | St. Louis Hotels & Eureka MO Campgrounds.

We stayed there while visiting family in St. Louis early this summer. Was a little pricey, but we liked it. I had read really mixed reviews about sites having very little space. I called ahead and we got a pull through site with plenty of space on either side. No space concerns in our 34' motorhome.

The Eureka KOA is right across I44 from the Jellystone campground. We've not stayed there but drove right past it.

Enjoy your trip to St. Louis!

We just stayed at the KOA in Eureka, very typical KOA, but a little close to the train. Very close to Six Flags, if you are interested. Another good stop in St. Louis is the City Museum. I am by no means a big museum fan, but this place was awesome, tons of fun!

Livin' the dream.
