3 Reviews of Lake Murphysboro State Park
Good fishing and caoening

I’ve camped here several times with family and also with Boy Scouts. The regular campground is ok. Regular state park stuff. The group camping area was very nice. It is a large, separate area. We had the whole area to ourselves each time we took the scouts. There were pit toilets, but the guys didn’t care. Also lots of free fire wood, hiking, fishing and canoeing!

We stayed there in Oct. and I can’t remember it.

We stayed there for a day or two. Apparently. Our travel page states that. But I don’t remember it. There was an armadillo. And deer.

Murphy lake

Camper area is well cared for but tent camping needed to be mowed desperately. Lots of bug spray required. the area is very hilly and narrow to drive through. Over all very nice place to camp!
