On this episode of the Campground of the Week podcast, Kerri Cox reviews the Eureka Jellystone Park Resort at SixFlags, which is located near St. Louis, Missouri.
This Jellystone wears a few hats, offering a great urban basecamp for exploring the great city of St. Louis and also providing a fun place to stay while visiting SixFlags theme park just next door. Throw in a pool, mini golf course, and tons of recreational activities and you wind up with a fantastic campground option near St. Louis, Missouri.
This Jellystone Resort is in the town of Eureka, Missouri just about 20 minutes southwest of downtown St. Louis. It’s a good sized campground and offers a ton of cabin options if you are looking to visit without an RV. Kerri’s favorite thing about this Jellystone was how wooded it was, hosting a great canopy of trees even though it’s located in an urban area.
Expect to find smaller site sizes at this Jellystone, since the focus is on the amenities and activities offered throughout the rest of the park. Sites at the front of the park are smaller, but place you in the heart of the action. For more privacy, you may want to check out the area at the back of the park where guests will find water and electric sites. Of course, if you have a bigger rig, you will want to make sure you rig will easily fit before booking.
One of the best features of the Eureka Jellystone is that it provides a great location for extended family or friends to gather and vacation together even if they don’t all own RVs. Tent sites, deluxe cabins, and RV sites are clustered together and make it easy to plan a group get together.
Campground Amenities and Activities
Kerri was very happy to report that the campground amenities were all recently updated and very well maintained. Her family enjoyed time at the pool, and had a few rounds of competitive mini golf. We didn’t get a straight answer about who came out as the winner…
Other campground amenities and activities include:
- sand volleyball court
- game room
- snack bar
- weekly themed activity schedule
Kerri’s family always enjoys a visit to St. Louis, and she stresses how affordable this city is, providing plenty of free attractions like the zoo for visitors on a budget. Kerri’s favorite place is the City Museum, and she also recommends the Gateway Arch, the Forest Park area, and Busch Stadium.
