“Noise from leaf blowing machines are so intrusive!”

Reviewed Dec 12, 2017

Overall Rating

Camped in campground II for 2 weekday nights. Both mornings woke up to very very loud leaf blowing machines operated by park staff. Continued on and off through the day. So annoying considering we are in an out of the way state park where we should enjoy peacefulness and serenity. Not so here. When we spoke to park attendant about it, ... more

“Nice Park, Sites Not So Nice”

Reviewed Mar 21, 2017

Overall Rating

Overall rating is 3 stars with the Park 5 and the camp sites about a zero. Remind me not to stay here again, please. Sites in old loop where we were at are a mishmash of angles and tightly packed on the sides, behind and in front, too. Trees are there but mostly interfered with getting into our space. Didn't appreciate the noisy crowd ... more

“Chose a site in Camping Area 2 (the newer section)!”

Reviewed Dec 03, 2016

Overall Rating

We camped here in 2012 and had good memories of the place. There are nice trails around the bayous and a fun disc golf course (they lend discs for free!). There is free laundry and as far as we remembered, nice FHU sites. We arrived late and all the FHU sites in the Camping Area 2 (the newer, nicer area, close to the laundry and newer ... more

“Beautiful spot with great short nature trails ”

Reviewed Mar 12, 2016

Overall Rating

We opted to stay in the "old section," Camping Area 1 where sites are dirt, some a bit wonky and honestly, both our electric and water were on the wrong side and wouldn't reach the trailer. Then what's with the 4 star review? Well, this place is really pretty and the campground and park have a great feel. There are a number of natur... more

Overall Rating

This was a quick overnighter. It was about 7 or so miles from I10 but worth the trip. We took a nice walk in the morning before we left. We saw a ton of turtle and a small alligator. They have a short nature trail with signs explaining the wildlife and trees. I would come back again.
The site we were at had water and electric.

“Kinda like a steam bath you can't get out of, good thing there is FREE laundry!”

Reviewed Nov 18, 2014

Overall Rating

It is very hot and humid in July and August, 98 degrees with a heat index of 115 while we were there. That being said you really can't complain about humidity when you decide to camp in south Louisiana in the peak of summer, you know what you are getting into. The park once had a fenced in population of whitetail deer, the fence was d... more
