“Clean with wonderful amenities! ”

Reviewed Apr 06, 2018

I can’t say enough good about this campground. After 4 days of roadside and beach camping, the hot showers and free laundry were exactly what I needed. Full hookups at each site, friendly neighbors and many trails to explore. They even have a free swap library with a great selection. Note: The states nightly rate of $20 does not incl... more

We stayed here a couple of nights mid-February and it was a nice enough place. We pulled out on a Friday as hordes of people were filling up the campground! The sites are deep and relatively private and well maintained. We did some exploring and saw a gator in the pond at the end of the campground. He was watching some people fishi... more

“Beautiful park, but never on a weekend!”

Reviewed Mar 06, 2018

Overall Rating

This is really a beautiful park with nice trails and lakes, well maintained. However, we planned to stay Thursday through Sunday, but left early. Thursday night was fine, but Friday night was all about parties, neighbors with loud music and talk past midnight. We could tell that Saturday night was going to be even worse, so left early.... more

“great park with large, separated campsites”

Reviewed Mar 05, 2018

After driving down back roads and passing crawfish ponds, we found this great state park. It's fairly new. It has nice sites that are well separated. Plenty of room to bike/hide. There is a boat launch and canoe trails. The bathrooms have free laundry! We put additional detail on a youtube video ( https://youtu.be/J-gPeaYcnEs ) Cel... more

We arrive at Palmetto Island State Park between boon-docking trips with family in South Louisiana. Prior to departing on our Westward bound trip, we thought it would be a classic S. Louisiana spot to check out. The only uncomfortable experience I would expect would be staying here in warmer months; not so much from the heat, but fro... more

“Free laundry, private sites, a bit off the path to get there, nice looking hiking”

There were a bunch of armadillos here - let's start by saying that. Also, free laundry, so we stayed right next to the bath house / laundry area. 2 washers and dryers per bath house. The first day we made up the cost of the site with 6 loads of laundry. Getting here was a bit of a drive off our path as we traveled from Mississipp... more

The other reviews cover this place well, I just wanted to mention the FREE LAUNDRY at this park. I must have done 12 loads while here, just for fun. If you have the time, do the kayak/canoe trail as well. It is not very long, but pretty as heck. PS - scout your site ahead. Some sites have street lamps right in them. On top of those ... more

“Beautiful park in the heart of Cajun Country”

Reviewed May 09, 2017

I wish we had more time to spend in this area. The park itself was lush and green, even in the middle of February. The campsites are huge - ours was 75 feet long, and at least 25 feet wide. If you can drive it in, you can park it here. The sites are nestled among the trees, and have good privacy. There are excellent restrooms, showers ... more

“Clean, private, well-run campground, watch out for wildlife”

Reviewed Apr 07, 2017

Overall Rating

Sites are level (a few are concrete, most are dirt/gravel), and well-spaced. There's a lot of plant life keeping the sites private and well shaded. The restrooms are huge, modern, and very clean. We had 3-4 bars of Verizon and 4-5 of AT&T. The park WiFi is pretty good if you're close to the tower, but don't count on it. There are al... more

Overall Rating

The camp hosts and park staff are friendly and do a really good job keeping the park in great shape. We were really surprised at the quality of the park considering how inexpensive it was. We passed so many private RV parks with reach-out-and-touch-your-neighbor spacing that were far more expensive. It is a mystery to us why someone wo... more
