Hopefully others will be able to chime in and offer suggestions.

On another note if St. Louis is anything like here in SoCal I would recommend booking the campground ASAP. Almost all state parks here are booked solid for the summer months when students are out of school.

Two good choices would be Lakeside 370 RV park in St. Charles, MO and the Casino Queen RV park in East St. Louis, IL. If you don't need full hookups then Pere Marquette State Park in Grafton , IL might work for you.

We stayed at the KOA on Route 66 near the Six Flags. It is close to the city. We enjoyed it. If you are there after school is out, I would expect it to be cwowded. We were there in the Fall and Six Flags was not open.
