We stayed at this park one night & really enjoyed the area. The trees & moss are absolutely stunning & I could envision a beautiful wedding taking place under any one of the many oak trees. There are also remains of an old sugar mill which was very interesting to see. We rode our bikes all over the park &... More

Camped here in my Aliner for a few days in May 2015. The beach was very nice. It's only about 25 miles from New Orleans over the Causeway bridge. The park has some unique history with the ruins of an old sugar mill on site. I found it very well maintained and the facilities were clean.

This park is absolutely beautiful. They have a great beach area for an awesome family day out. This park is great for weddings or just spending a day with the family cooking out and playing a little sports. They have some cabins on the water that I hope they get opened soon!

We went to go to the beach. Have been before camping and to the beach a few years ago. $2 p/p to enter, and no sticker was given. The beach area really was dirty, it was embarrassing. On the beach, there was a washed up dirty diaper, a washed up feminine pad, a few beer cans, and there were lots... More

Visited the park today with my family. The entry fee is $2 per person (65+ or under 3 for free) and they do not give you a ticket or sticker so it seems there is no reentry. The state website advertised brick ruins of a sugar mill, sandy beach, access to Tammany Trace bike route, natural trails, and a visitor... More

We visited for just a short outing to the park, we did not stay to camp. The whole family enjoyed the picnic area and the restroom facilities. Our only complaint is that the playground facilities were a bit out of date. However, it did not slow my kids down at all. We had a blast!

This is a beautiful peaceful park. Have a "beach" near the water, a fishing pier, campgrounds, kids play area with water, also have great cabins right on the water for unique vacation. Watch out for deer when you drive though :)

We went camping over 4th of July weekend. It was beautiful. We swam in the lake (it was a bit muddy) but was awesome. There is one nice nature walk (1.2 miles) and one awesome hiking trail (4.8 miles) that we did. When camping you can come and go as you please. They give you a code to the gate.... More

We always try to avoid State Parks because we travel in a 40' motorhome and usually getting around in the parks is pretty dicey. However, we stayed in a "pull through" #2 in the North campground and it was plenty long enough for us. However the pull through was U shaped, so we had to park partially on the grass.... More
