Love it here!
We stayed the max of 15 days in a 36 ft class A. We were in spot #5 then #6. Good wifi here, lots of shade and close walk to the bathrooms. (We're new rv'ers, so also enjoyed watching everyone coming & going). Next time we'll try in the 40's--lot's of shade and some visitor parking for the car. Water spigot every few spots (bring an extra hose if you don't want to move). RECYCLING behind the bathhouse at the pump-out for glass & metal. CHECK the DIRECTIONS coming in. We're from the area and you don't want to come behind the airport up Eatherton--steep & narrow. Excellent map on the website if you want to study: shade, slope, length and water location. We'll be back.
Great Park for Exploring the St. Louis area
This was a great park to explore the St Louis area. It’s in a really nice area of town, set smack in the middle of 2,500-acres of natural woodland and nicely quiet despite being so close to civilization (~30 miles from central St Louis). The entrance is quite fancy with a massive stone gate, broad avenue and statue of Dr. Babler. The sites are also great. Very large, concrete and nicely flat with the bonus of electrical hook-ups available. Campers are well separated and there’s access to hiking and biking (13 miles in total) straight from the campground. During the week the place is practically deserted, although it tends to fill-up in the week-ends. Overall a great stop.
