Park was quiet and clean. Facilities were adequate, what we expected from a state park and rarely used them. Shower house was closed at this time of year. Very peaceful, tucked away campground. Gravel, spacious sites. Plenty of shade in the back of the campground. All sites were back-ins. Plenty of room for my 35ft motorhome with a tow. We camped at Argyle Lake State Park in a Motorhome.

A close campground to WIU. We stayed here while visiting the school. 15 minute drive to the campus. We would stay here again, especially while visiting WIU.

Very nice CG. Flat & level, great for bicycles. Good utilities. The 50 amp sites are marked on the post. Very helpful camp host. The park is HUGE! There is a road that circles the lake and provides access to the other campgrounds (primitive, and partial hook-up). I would not recommend traveling that road with a motor home or long fifth wheel - many short turns and narrow roads. While we were there, there were radio controlled airplane enthusiasts flying in a large field adjacent to the CG. There is a nature center also adjacent to the CG, basic but interesting. Several miles of flat trails run through the CG and surrounding areas. There is a restaurant at the marina in the campground but we didn't try it. The marina also sells bait and rents boats & canoes. The CG is wooded, but not so much as to interfere with satellite reception at most sites. Good dump station. At the time we were there, the shower house was closed for repairs (roof). Water pressure good. We camped at Argyle Lake State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We were looking for a quiet place to stay in the general area to break up a long drive and manage tanks. We're self contained and don't use the facilities. We stayed on a week day in mid April. This campground is very nice. The campsites on the perimeter were good sized and relatively private with a mix of shade and sun. The inside sites were a bit smaller, less private and mostly in the sun. All sites had electric and we're mostly level. There is a dump station near the entrance, and water through the the sites. There's no wifi. There is adequate Verizon and no ATT cell coverage. The camp host was helpful and friendly. We paid $15 with a senior discount. We camped at Argyle Lake State Park in a Motorhome.

Camped in spot 57 - which was nicely tucked away in the rear of the campground under mature trees. All the spots seem to be nicely spread out...gravel drives. The campground was about 1/4 full this weekend-it was a nice quiet stay. :) We camped at Argyle Lake State Park in a Tent Trailer.

Large spacious sites under mature trees. Friendly hosts and friendly campers. Camped here in a 40ft motorhome and had several sites to choose from. Most sites are graveled and level with picnic table and fire pit. Good fishing lake as part of the park. New dump station. We camped at Argyle Lake State Park in a Motorhome.
