Last minute decision to overnight near Saint Louis led to calling this park 100 miles out of town. I was somewhat concerned about using an inner city facility. Pleasantly surprised. Park is a city block enclosed by fences and trees around the perimeter, clean, all gravel. Near all the things you might like to do in Saint Louis. Less than 3 miles from the Arch. The people were helpful and kind.
Wanted to visit the Arch and check out a few good eating places in St Louis. This park is located in an urban part of St Louis and is convenient to all those attractions. I called ahead and spoke with the owner who is the daughter of the original owners. She gave me special instructions on how to get to there from the freeway. I strongly suggest that you call her and write down her instructions if you plan to stay there.
The park is a few acres of gravel and old pavement. It has full hookups throughout and they are of good quality. Water pressure is a bit low but that is OK. I was assigned a pull thru site that has plenty of space on both sides for slides and awnings and even park your car alongside your rig.
Security is excellent with a street on 3 sides of the park and a school on the 4th. A precinct St Louis police station is across the street. There is some road noise but no train noise. A few sirens but Hey, you are in the middle of a big city.
Local dining is incredibly good. Pappy's Smokehouse is less than 5 minutes away and serves the best St Louis style ribs on the planet. The Broadway Oyster Bar is not to be missed for good Cajun food and music. All within a short distance from your parking spot.
Be sure to get the local briefing from the owner who will give you the rundown on all the best places to visit and how to get there.
