Thanks to Jim Hambrick, owner/operator of the Super Museum in Metropolis, Illinois, I know where I'll be staying while in town.
I asked Jim if there's any place to "boondock" in Metropolis and he suggested the Fort Massac State Park instead, which is not too far from the Super Museum and has a campground with electrical hook-ups.
According to Reserve America:
Dedicated the first Illinois state park in 1908 and overlooking the Ohio River at Metropolis Illinois, this park has a military history predating the Revolutionary War. 1802 reconstructed fort, statue of George Rogers Clark, museum and visitor center.
It looks to be an interesting place to camp The Beast at.
