  • This is an excellent place to camp or just go for the day. Great for the entire family. Bike trail, hiking trails, and large deer fences to view the deer. It is by the water and has a play ground and ...  read more »
  • Sadly due to budget cuts the park has gone downhill a little bit, dirtier bathrooms and overfilled trash cans. But it is still a great place to go walk/run/bike around. The trails are surprisingly in ...  read more »
  • Not a typical state park laid out nicely with walking trails and camp sites and cabins - one nice park - pease full with a nice river to fish - 
  • I stoped on My way to Texas. Only had a small tent but got a sight next to the showers and restrooms. It was great! Only thing I can say is put your food or cooler up at night! The racoon will come and get into anything not secure., But I enjoyed watching him , and even left him something when I left! Will be back whenever in St Charles.............!
  • Very nice park with walking trails, cabins to rent and spaces for rvv's to park, boat launch and small kids play area. Gives you a good view of the water and some wildlife, some swampy areas are nice to see/visit esp if you're not from this area.
  • Gorgeous park. Nice walking trails through the swamps and along the river. Friendly staff. Great RV sites but it looks like a terrible place to tent camp as they're crammed in and open. Tip: bring your Rv!
  • This place is great for day visits but is a rip off for camping. During the summer it is 22 dollars a night plus a six dollar transaction fee, there is trash everywhere and the campsites are extremely close together, there are raccoons everywhere that will steal all your food (it happened to us).
  • Beautiful park that offers nature views of Lousiana in a relaxed settings. Well maintained facilities with excellent camp sites.
