Dr. Edmund A. Babler Memorial State Park in Wildwood, MO is a nice state park as are all Missouri state parks. It is a good base to explore St. Louis (40 minute drive), St. Charles, MO and Route 94 wine trail. Also not far from Six Flags Amusement Park. When we go to a Cardinal's game we park at the Casino Queen and take the free shuttle, we tip the driver. In my opinion it is the safest way to go to and from the game.

Personally I would not take the Metro Link. If you are planning on staying at the Casino Queen RV park the shuttle is a great way to get there and back. Check out their web site, click on "visiting" and "Shuttle". First transport is 90 minutes before and last pick up is 1 hour after the game, every 15 minutes. They drop you off right in front of the stadium. It is a great safe way to go.
I don't know about how safe it is to stay at the Casino Queen RV park. They do have security cruising around the casino parking lot. We try to get a parking spot near the hotel building as that is where the shuttle pick up is located.

Yes, it is nice. We just drive there and park near the hotel. They drop off and pick up at the same area by the stadium. The times are on their web site.

East St. Louis is on the Ill. side. The park may be ok and have security I would not advise any site seeing etc. in East St. Louis.

Yes, we stayed there a couple of years ago. The drive to downtown was very easy and less than 25 minutes, no big deal. The campground was nice and we felt safe there.

I traveled with my 3 kids and we had no interest in staying in the downtown area or in a casino parking lot which had been suggested on here.
