Campground Review: St. Louis West / Historic Route 66 KOA
We found that St. Louis is a busy place on the weekend in the fall, but we located a campsite at the St. Louis West / Historic Route 66 KOA for a few nights. While our RV GPS had a little trouble finding the campground, Google Maps didn’t let us down and lead us to the St. Louis West / Historic Route 66 KOA without issue. The campground is located at the same exit as Six Flags, so following signs for that would help if your GPS is trying to lead you astray.
Speaking of Six Flags, this would be a very convenient campground to stay at if you plan to visit the amusement park. It was about a half hour drive to downtown St. Louis. The campground provides and an easy in/out as it is located right along I-44. However, this also led to quite a bit of road noise as well as a railroad nearby.
We were in a pull-thru site just down the hill from the office, near the pool. The sites in this row were suitable for big rigs, but we didn’t have enough room to park our truck on the site. The sites in the new section seemed to be a bit larger (A34 - A45). If you have a larger rig, make sure to verify they have a site to accommodate your size.
There were many mature trees a the St. Louis West / Historic Route 66 KOA, providing lots of shade and during our stay some incredible color! Some of the roads leading to these sites are a bit rough and bumpy. The pool was closed for the season during our stay. The campground had the usual standard KOA amenities - pool, jumping pillow, mining sluice, bike rentals, assorted sports courts, playgrounds, and a K9 park.
