  • Small and quiet. A great place to do a lot of nothing. Large expansive beach. Both freshwater and saltwater fishing. Fairly short, maybe a mile and a half walking path around the Lagoon that is not accessible during high tide. Free laundry with two washers two dryers and fairly good showers, no sewer hook up and no other amenities. If you're looking for a lot to do don't come here. If you're looking for peace and quiet, this is the place..
  • Love this park have been here 4 times and going back again this November. Very clean, beach is nice, would be perfect if it had sewer hook ups and you could see the beach from the campsite. But understand the dunes make a lot of protection.
  • The drive out to the park seems long but it is very scenic. Park is beautiful and peaceful. Great place to take a nap in the sun and listen to the waves.
  • I did not expect it to be so nice. Great views from the observation tower, the long fishing pier, and lots of scenery. The drive from New Orleans took slightly less than two hours but was filled with many sights, and views of the water, plus some cute small towns. There were several food options about 1 mile from the park.
  • Nice little beach park. There is a good nature trail, a tower to view the beach and two nice facilities, one with showers. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Camper hookups available. Had a great time on a winter's morning shooting video and exploring.
