  • We have decided that state parks are the way to go! The staff was friendly, super clean bathhouses with lots of hit water and lit electric hookups. Beautiful walk to the beach and pier. Though we only...  more »

  • I love this park. The cabins sleep six and they're less than $200/night. The are literally on the lake and are a perfect place to catch some amazing sunsets. We hike here, and the trails are nice. The walking isn't strenuous, so it's a good place to come with elderly family members or children. We've had some great nature sightings here: deer, owls, bald eagles, armadillos, jelly fish... There's just so much to see here. Totally worth $3/person for a days admission.
  • This is an esthetically pleasing park, full of magnificent live oaks, beautiful scenery including lake and bayou views, lots of wildlife, especially birds and deer, and it adjoins the Tammany Trace biking/hiking trail. Great cabins and camping facilities, too. Just a wonderful place to spend a day, or preferably, a week!
  • Great campground! There is lots to do from the beach on site, a splash pad and trails. We also saw lots of deer as well. Very kid friendly. The camper site was very spacious as well.
  • My wife and I are staying here for 3 nights. The park only has 5 sites with full RV hookups which book way out in advance but they don't charge any extra for these sites. There are three different types of sites. Premium, which is pull through sites with water/electric and 5 with sewer. Improved sites have electric/water and are back in. And unimproved sites which have no hookups at all. All the sites I have seen have concrete pads which are nice and level. It's a very well taken care of park. The wifi does not work in the two spots we have been in. They have access to the beach and have a ton open grass for events, groups, and parties with a playground, restrooms, etc. They also have a dump station so short term trips here with no sewer is no biggy. We would highly recommend as the staff is super friendly and helpful. We will be staying here again. We have already extended our stay a night because we like it so much.
  • It was our first time here and it was only for a day trip, but it seems like a nice park. The beach is fairly clean, but it's small and could get crowded easily. The playground has new equipment and the kids really enjoyed playing on it. The facilities could use some maintenance, but they are functional. The cabins on trhe lake appeared to be new, but like the other state parks in LA, I think they are overpriced. Definitely worth making a trip out to if you're looking for a quiet place to relax and let the kids run and play.
