Like others before us, we turned in the wrong spot coming east from St. Louis and our GPS took us on a scenic tour of some rough neighborhoods before we got close enough to spot the casino signs. The park looks new and the sites are spacious and level. Nice view of the Arch and capital dome. We were shocked by how much we were charged since we had read the comments of those before us and the casino campground's web site. Our fee reflects a Good Sam discount. Possibly those shorter than our 40' length, paid less. Call first. Park rating would be higher if the price were more reasonable and listed correctly on the web site.
Camping World is nearby and their staff recommended we stay here for an early morning repair appointment. The registration building is far from the campground and there isn't enough space for a large rig to turn around there. There were only a handful of folks camping here, but the clerk assigned us to the same space he assigned another rig to. We asked for a site between #1 - 10 to be a bit farther from the noisy expressway, but he said all those sites were reserved. There were 4 rigs camped there. No one else came in. He gave us a password for a non-existent internet. This spot is over priced compared to similar casino campgrounds we've enjoyed. But it is close to camping world.
When we phoned ahead to make sure that the camp sites were available, we were told to choose a site and that someone would be around later to collect the fee. There were two other rigs there, but no one stopped by. The park is centrally located and made a good over night stop on our way home. Electricity, water and sewer hook ups were conveniently located and worked well. The sites are very closely spaced. No restrooms or showers were in the vicinity.
The owners have worked so hard to make this park attractive, they have forgotten that people being there can cause disorder. I felt like I was in a library and the librarian was constantly saying "Shush." We had a mechanical problem with our motor home and were aided by the repairman the owners recommended and they scolded him for opening the engine compartment. They enforced the rules like the Gestapo the entire week we were there and made us feel unwelcome. The 10mph speed limit was rigorously enforced. We camp six months a year and have never encountered such a lack of understanding from campground owners. They acted like we were the Beverly Hillbillies defiling their campground with our malfunctioning rig. Too bad - it was a nice park otherwise.
