It's along The Great River Road app. 40 miles north of Alton, IL, and about an hour north east of St. Louis. I made a mistake in saying the Illinois River emptied into the Missouri near that park. It's the Mississippi River, not the Missouri. As you can see, Fall season is beautiful there, so the weekends in September and October are usually booked solid, but there are first come - first serve sites available. We were there during the week before Halloween last year and the colors were in prime. You can also take a river ferry at Grafton that will take you into the countryside between the two rivers and take you north.

Casino Queen in East Saint Louis. There's not much to it, but we are right across from their little playground and have used their free shuttle to the metro. The view is pretty cool.

Yep- took it to show proximity to the train lines. Though- I had to google "UP SD70M" to find out what you were talking about!
