“Nice CG”

I will agree with everything Nathen @ Wand'rly said except for the immaculate part. The bathrooms were ATROCIOUS. Not only was there toilet tissue all over the floor-2 unwrapped rolls strewn across the floor and there for hours, which I will put off to someone who should not have been there, but the shower curtains were first of all not the originals that hang from tiny, delicate unsuitable tabs but "new" ones that were held in place on a square rod with those clips you use for keys that are round and lock shut...except these didn't lock and the end result was plastic curtains ripped from their holders and hanging like the curtains in a haunted house. The stalls were dirty, had hair in the drains and the water pressure was just OK. This was in direct contrast to the laundry room which had two brand new and beautiful washers and dryers that were free.
The cell reception was non-existent but the office, which had numerous maps and pamphlets with great info, had a list of places where you can get a signal. However, one of them was on the walking trail that was inaccessible due to flooding. There were nice little decks along the lake behind the sites (about every 3-4 sites) but the MOSQUITOES were biting at dusk and there is a lot of POISON IVY so watch out when collecting wood.
If you're running low on gas get it before heading there as there will be no gas stations for the 11 miles along the levee and back.
As Nathan said the drive there is nice as is the drive to New Iberia where we went to tour the Tabasco factory (a very worthwhile trip). There is a lot to do in the area as well as at the camp-biking, kayaking and boating/fishing.

While we were safely inside our RV the couple next to us slept in their tent instead of the hammocks they had set up because they heard alligators quite close by as soon as it got dark.

“Worth the very out of the way drive”

It's a beautiful drive along the levees and bayous from I-10 to this state park. There is natural beauty here and Neil Young tells me that natural beauty should be preserved like a monument to nature. Hmm, that's a weird statement when you just write it out and don't have a whiny voice and his electric guitar behind it. But this has little to do with the park, save I was listening to that song shortly before writing this.

What does have to do with the park is this: during the week leading up to Mardi Gras, the place was packed with RVs dressed in beads and jesters, yellow greens and purples everywhere. They were having a parade the day after we left.

You can pick up all the wood you want from the forest and burn it, the ranger's not only told us it was legal, they were super friendly and suggested we try and get as much as we can, and if we need more where we could find additional free wood just up the road.

Louisiana's park system is under-funded, and we've seen abandoned playgrounds and busted up picnic tables, etc. throughout other parks, but this one was more or less immaculate. Like most of the swamplands of southern LA, many of the sites are wet to a point where the grills are not accessible without getting your feet wet. Then again, it's all part of the experience if you care to look at it that way.

Take the shortest hike of your life to the observation deck for a beautiful view. Wish we would have had a bit more time to stay here and canoe around the waters.
