Pine Heaven!

This is a great campground mostly for tents though a few RVs were there too. Large sites in a pine forest with a thick bed of pine needles. Pit toilets and water are available. The orange trail (5 mile loop) starts at the campground making it easy to access the trail to check out the sandy forest and prickly pear cactus. I stayed on a Saturday night and there were less than a third of the sites in use though, frustratingly, most were reserved limiting our options though the people didn’t show up. Hiking in sand is challenging and you’ll get a work out! The campground was quiet and peaceful. About a 10 minute drive to a small town for supplies. Many, many miles of hiking so you can hike as much of as little as you like. Good trees for hammocks as well.

Nice place!

Catch and release fishing, small beach area with volleyball. Sites are small but clean. Bath house is clean and well maintained. Live music on the weekend. Definitely a heavy-drinking crowd. Camp store. It's in the middle of nowhere but only about 20 minutes to the nearest small town. No Verizon wireless service here or anywhere for about a 45 mile radius.

Loved it!

We rented two cabins for the weekend and loved the place. Cabins were modern and clean overlooking the pond. They offer kayaks, canoes, and peddle boats free to campers. There is an open cabin with games, books, and WiFi. Basketball court, play area, and outdoor games. Staff were friendly and helpful. Truly a gem of a find.

Convenient and really well maintained. Great place for travelers with pets.

Right off highway 80 we stopped in for the night on our way out West and wound up staying 2. Very clean park with lots of shade. Spaces are a bit close together but the grounds make up for it. There's a huge amount of green space surrounding the campsites and even a fishing  pond on site. Our dogs loved the GIGANTIC dog area. Lots of grass to run off their energy.  Full hook ups at a reasonable nightly rate.

The owners were very kind and made us feel welcome. Highly recommend.

Might work for some

Time and the city of Warsaw have forgotten this park. Lots of trash overflowing the cans and on the ground. A dyke is being built across the roadway which obscures the river view . This maybe ok if nothing else is available but we opted to move on. No TMobile service or antenna TV service

Good Overnight Stay

This is a large parking lot beside the Southside Boat Club Grill/bar which was quite popular. Hookups are located down the center aisle , there is 30 and 50 service also water at some sites. The other areas of the lot do not have hookups. The lot is bordered on the east by the River and west by a train depot. Hoping for the best tonight , $14.00 / night for seniors , $16 otherwise. Coupon for a free beer with paid fee 😂

Unable to locate

We looked at all 3 city parks in this area, we found the grassy area where this is marked but no campsites or hookups

Under a bridge

This is a non hookup spot that is under a bridge and beside the train tracks

Perfect location when traveling

My Husband were traveling to Montana and this campground was right off the freeway. The grounds are well maintained and the hosts were amazing. They helped you get to your site and get lined up. All sites are pull thru with full hookups. The grounds have lots of mature trees so shade is plenty. There is a very large area to walk your dogs and they have centrally located pet disposal can. They have a pond which was nice to walk the dogs around. I liked that the campground was quiet as we went to bed early in order to get an early start the next day. Keep in mind there are no showers which for us wasn’t an issue but some people might not have that option. We will use them again for sure!!

We love camping at Argyle!

Our kids love argyle for the paved roads they can easily ride bikes on, the 2 playgrounds and the room to run! We love it because of the spacious sites and options to hike and bike.
