Where to park RV around St. Louis area

We have traveled from the Nashville area to Northern CA and will head eastward about the middle of April. Would like to visit Grant Farm in the St. Louis area. We will be coming from the northern area but would be willing to park anywhere near the St. Louis area. Any ideas? We have a 40' diesel pusher.

We have stayed at Casino Queen in East St Louis. Very safe around the casino area and right across the river from the arch. Most of the campgrounds seem to be on the western side of the metro St Louis area and a bit if a drive to the downtown area.

The park in St Charles (on the west side) is nice, Casino Queen looked good. We have not stayed at either.

We've stayed at Red Barn Rendezvous and Cahokia RV Parque, both run by good people. Cahokia and Casino Queen are only a couple miles apart, both in a rough neighborhood. However, both are fenced and Casino Queen has there own security while Cahokia has a police station at one end. These 2 are only 3 miles from the Arch.

We were there for work, 7 months. 4 months at Red Barn (5 miles from the shop we were at), right off I55 20 miles north of the city. Then they all shut down for winter and we had to move to Cahokia, the only one left open.

There is a KOA in Granite City, but they had closed for winter. The people we knew staying there said they had power problems during the hottest part of the summer. When I talked to the owner he told me about their electrical issues and showed me the updates they started for the winter, redoing all the 50 amp sites. The problem was only during 100+ degree days when the park was full. I only mention this because I was heavily warned about it by several people.

Sundermeiers in St. Charles is designed for big rigs. We usually stay there during a yearly trip further west. Unfortunately, the original owners have sold the business, and the very nice restaurant has been closed. Welcome to Sundermeier RV Park

It's still a nice location, but the high cost is no longer balanced by the loss of the restaurant. However there are several nice restaurants in St. Charles and plenty of parking there for big rigs.

Sundermeiers......x2. Did not know it had changed ownership, too bad. We stumbled into it, and was so impressed with the old St. Charles, we stayed an extra day and spent it walking and touring the old town. One of those unexpected "diamonds" you find from time to time. May just do it again.
