Let’s just say that St.louis is NOT rv friendly. Getting to see the gatewayarch was comical for us, but we made it happen. There currently is no parking near the arch for rvs. All parking lots are tight to get into (even for our smaller rig) and unable to accommodate.
We did see some very small class c’s that were able to get into the parking lot, but that’s it. I read about a water front lot the people used to park RV’s, but it is currently closed for eventual construction. Currently no construction is occurring.
So, we found a small patch of gravel on a small unmarked road. The road contained no signs that said we couldn’t park and it is a rarely used road.
It worked Even though we were anxious about leaving it there, we did not receive a ticket. Other buses parked there also. We have seen other RV’ers risk it, but this was our first time and it paid off. We would not have been able to see the gateway arch or its museum without risking this spot!
The museum is worth it. We did not do the trams to the top for the sake of time and our animals can’t be left for too long even though the temperature was cool enough.
There is an rv park on the outskirts of town if you want to stay overnight to safely and less anxiously see the arch! We could not stay overnight as we had reservations elsewhere. But we had a good time nonetheless.
