Near train tracks that blow their horns thru the night, WiFi was terrible, cable didn't work. I would have to rank this the worst campground I have ever stayed at especially for the price not to mention it's a NO CAMPFIRE county. We stayed one night passing thru and would not return if it was free. Grounds were muddy.

Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review. Please accept our sincere apologies that you were not satisfied with your stay. The county does not permit campfires or ground fires and unfortunately this is beyond our control. We appreciate your feedback and will pass along your comments to our management team. We wish you all the best.

Family of 6 stayed for one week. Campground was clean and well kept. Not very scenic by any means, though. Rather a parking lot-type feel. Bath houses are clean but shower pressure stinks. Kids enjoyed the jumping pillow and play ground. Needs some benches all around it for parents to sit and watch. The worst part of the whole thing...

Spent 1 night On our trip out west. Very convenient location for Lewis and Clark state park and the Convergence Tower. Park was quiet and well shaded. Staff very friendly. Park and restrooms were very clean. Less than 2 mikes from I-70 with good signage. Just east of the RR tracks

Had called earlier about renting for at least a month after selling our house. Asked if we could come down and have a look see. Discovered it was mostly transient workers, all gravel lots and streets. Just did not live up to other KOA oarks we have stayed at. Very close to the steel mills and very convenient for transient...

Unfriendly staff, dirty shared facilities and an unsafe feeling at night. The bathrooms are situated down the side of the building next to a fence and it was scary using them at night. The laundry closed at 9pm. There was no mention in the write up that the place was close, or perhaps next to a racetrack, but there was...

Don't be put off by the approach to this campground--through an industrial park. The campground has very pleasant surroundings, and is nicely treed (some trees could use some pruning for the benefit of high rigs). We give this campground 3 stars because on the first site we were assigned, the circuit breaker kept on blowing when we only had AC...

We stayed here for one night. Easy in and out for the travel trailer. (That's always nice.) Tent spaces available. A welcome spot at the end of a day of travel. Our GPS took us the "scenic" route. I recommend having a reservation.

Campground was very clean. Bathroom, showers and pool were all well maintained and clean. Nice and quiet at night (except for the occasional train) for the most part. There was a fox that wandered through our site one day while we were eating looking for food, but he kept on moving when he saw us. I would definitely recommend this...

We had just cycled 80kms on the Mississippi River Trail and had planned to camp here. If it hadn't been so hot and further to go, we would have cycled on. The dark haired receptionist couldn't have been more rude to us. It was a shock because everyone we have met along our journey has been kind and friendly and...

Stayed here in a cabin on a family vacation.

Only downside was a shared public bathroom & showers. They were clean but it was more like a dorm bathroom than...

“I tent camp so cabins or rooms aren't an issue with me. They let you pitch your tent under the shelters if you want which is very nice. Electricity is available. I always bring a fan and electric cooker of some sort.”

“Location: "Average/Good" because it is very easy to drive to the St. Louis Arch. However, the location is "poor" because it is located so close to the railroad yard and tractor trailer transportation depot.”
