South Toledo Bend State Park, Anacoco

(4.2/5 based on 30+ reviews on the web)
South Toledo Bend State Park is one of two Louisiana State Parks located on the shores of Toledo Bend Reservoir. The land for the park was acquired in 1979 but it was not opened to the public with facilities until November 20, 2004. The park, located at 120 Bald Eagle Road, in Anacoco, LA, quickly became popular due to its recreation potential.ActivitiesVisitors to the park can enjoy activities such as hiking, cycling, birding, camping, and wildlife watching. The park is 1,000acre in size, which gives visitors ample room to roam and hike. There is a 3,000ft surfaced nature trail which leads from the visitor's center museum and the Hippie Point Hiking Trail, 1.5mi long. For those who want to stay overnight, the park provides 19 cabins, all located near the lake shoreline, and 60 campsites. John boats will be available soon and may be rented and several park roads may be used for cycling. There is a beach area for swimming. The impressive visitor's center museum was opened on July 21, 2005. It contains nature-based exhibits and dioramas designed to increase awareness of indigenous species and their role in the environment.The park is a nesting ground for the bald eagle which feeds on the freshwater fish. Fisherman may also catch the fish in the reservoir, including largemouth bass, catfish, bream, and white perch. There is a two-lane boat ramp in the park.

  • Nice boat launch with about 30-40 vehicle & trailer parking spots. Bathroom, fish cleaning station and dock available at boat launch. 2 Lane boat launch.
  • This is a great place to get away For the weekend if you really need to. It's really laid back and country.
  • was here april 1-3, 2016. will never go back. park does not enforce quiet hour rules. could not sleep because two sites down people were up till midnight being loud, cursing, and playing music. even after i called to complain this continued. many camp sites had a boat, rv, multiple vehicles parked in the grass... kids ran around unsupervised... was not the relaxing weekend that i had hoped for.
  • Pretty place. Great fishing and camping. Take plenty of bug spray.
  • Toledo is awesome..great fishing and relaxation
