  • This state park is good but could be great. There are very few RV sites with sewer hook up. The asphalt at many sites is deteriorating making them not level. There was a substantial drop off at the ed...  more »

  • This is the only park around Mandeville that has something like long walk in a mature trail where you can take the dogs. Yes, there is the big branch, the nature center, and so on but.... This is usua...  more »

  • This is one of the nicest and best maintained state parks I've been to in Louisiana. The bathrooms were super clean and my dog and I had so much fun walking on the nature trails. The Alligator Marsh Boardwalk is really cool for walking on the water and seeing some pretty views of the lake. The only thing I didn't know was that no pets are allowed on the beach. Not a big deal at all, because there's plenty of picnic tables and other seating along the lake where you can soak up the sun with your furry friend. Highly recommend this park!
  • Great place to bring the kids!! Has a beach..hiking trails...cabin rentals..camp grounds...history of an old sugar mill..beautiful trees..alligator trail...playground...bike trail on Tammany Trace runs through it right before the entrance to pay. It's only $3 per person and kids 3 and under are free, not bad! Kids loved it!!
  • I've always looked camping at this state park. As a warning, reservations can be figure to get on short notice. RV hookups are generally water/electricity only, so if you are going to be there for an extended stay, you have to have your own plan for grey and black water. Personally, I've never found that to be a problem. It's just a nice place to spend some time with the family!
  • The slips are not crowded and have picnic tables and a fire ring. The wildlife, the Lake, and the park in general was amazing. So beautiful. At least every half hour or so somebody affiliated with the park would ride by. They may have just been on their way to work but it feels very safe. The gates are locked around dark and you get a pass code. The facilities were clean. Very clean and everything worked. I didn't use the laundry but others said it was just as nice. For such a large park, we didn't have a lot of traffic in and out. It was fun to walk my dog or sit out front and watch the birds and squirrels. All of our neighbors were very friendly. A lot of people had dogs when we went. Dogs love it there. There is a 6ft leash rule but my dachshund and I didn't encounter any unfriendly dogs. I can't wait to go back!
  • We rented a log cabin for my daughter's 10th Birthday for her and a few friends. It was very fun and the cabin was nice. Bedding was clean and comfortable. The bathrooms were old but kept up. The kitchen had a constant burning stove which made it smell like gas in the kitchen. We spent the day in the park riding bikes and enjoying the nature walks and beaches. All in all a great family place to stay.
