We love camping at all the campgrounds on Carlyle Lake. It’s always a good time. There are plenty of areas to fish, hike, swim, picnic. Looking forward to another great year and fun filled camping and fishing.🎣

Great place to camp

Large grassy camp sites, dog park and clean restrooms/shower house. Lake is very pretty and great staff.

A hidden gem in Missouri

Washington State Park is a hidden gem in Missouri! We camped in mid-March 2021 for 7 days and thoroughly enjoyed the area. They had just opened a new shower house which was clean and well kept. The campground hosts were especially helpful and friendly. The prehistoric Petroglyphs nearby are a must see.

Quiet site around a former quarry

A few drive up sites and lots of hike in spots around a quarry turned lake. Beautiful and clean setting. We stayed in site 24. There were picnic tables and a fire pit at our site. Great for tent camping, not sure that trailers or anything larger than a car is allowed

No drive in sites

Seems to only be a hiking area. Did not see any spots that you could pull up and set up camp. Drove a few miles away to Klondike Park where there are both drive in and hike in spots!

The hiking areas look nice though!

Good setting and close enough to make it worth the stay

Maybe we are spoiled by Arkansas State Parks and the standard amenities they have. Not having water available except at the camp host, and no open restrooms and showers until after April 1, regardless of when the last freeze is was inconvenient for a spring break trip.

The signage is not great and the visitor center was closed (presumably due to COVID concerns) so there was no one to ask directions. We ended up dragging our camper through the whole park before we found the road to the campgrounds.

The setting is quiet and secluded and the site we had was level and spacious. We had to be completely self supported except electricity, which was fine but it would have been nice to have the showers open at the least.

It was ok

Positives: Really nice people at check in. It does have 30 amp service even though this app shows it doesn’t. 30 pound water pressure. Nice level concrete pad with a picnic table. Right off highway 370.

Opportunities for Improvement: Expensive for what you get. On Lambert international airports flight path, next to a major train trestle, right next to Highway 370. No campfires. Very industrial around the park. Very urban environment. Approached by a person wanting to know if I had “some.”

Beautiful Park with Multiple Terrains

Campsites were great. Stayed at a walk-in site for a night and enjoyed it. Some sites are closer to the highway and cars flying down the road can make it hard to sleep but after midnight, they stopped. Trails are beautiful and perfect for families wanting to just come to a park for a day and hikers. Can’t go wrong for a 10$ a night campsite with restrooms and water available. 10/10 would recommend to anyone wanting to camp!

Close to the City

Quieter despite the surroundings. Due to foliage, seems much more spacious and nature rich.
