I love the beautiful Live Oak trees. The park was well kept, peaceful,plenty to see, and easy walk to the beach. It gives you the sense of old Louisiana.

This is such a lovey place to visit and camp. There are several playgrounds for children as well as a long fishing pier and a lovely sandy beach. It is just a great retreat and it has cabins for rent that overlook the lake. A perfect day trip or stay overnight. Years ago I did a lot of tent camping... More

Beautiful place to visit, whether for the day, overnight or extended stay. Nestled under beautiful oak trees, you can find a quiet spot for a picnic or take pictures. Go for a Walk on the many nature trail or spend time sunning on the beach overlooking Lake Pontchartrain. If you bring your camper you can find a nice spot to... More

I took my 6 yr old granddaughter and my 2 yr old grandson, they played, rode bikes and when in the waterpark area. They had a great time and were ready for a nap by the time we returned home.

Really nice park with plenty of picnic areas. The beach is very clean. We were there today and he water was a perfect temperature for swimming. The water was calm and pretty shallow on the shore. Only thing that sucks is that the water is a nasty looking brown. The bathroom facilities near the beach are also very clean. Also... More

It has everything: a beach, plenty of grass and picnic areas, walking trails that lead to beautiful marshes, historic sugar plantation ruins, biking trails, wildlife, and more! I believe it even has cabins to rent and campsites.

This is a stunningly beautiful park. Many many live oaks that are hundreds of years old are sprawling about the park. The paved trailhead goes right past the park so we usually bike into the park and sit under the trees or on the little beach that fronts Lake Ponchatrain. There is a nice pier, lots of picnic space and... More

We had a nice shady spot for our travel trailer. However, the park overall was not well kept. The visitor center was closed and grass was overgrown in some places.

In lieu of all the expensive hotels in New Orleans during Jazz Fest, we opted to camp with friends at Fontainebleau. Great choice! The shaded campsites are absolutely beautiful. The "comfort station" nearby is clean and, bonus, climate controlled! With all the park amenities, we couldn't have asked for anything more. Well, except for maybe a recycling bin.
