My honey booked us a two night stay in her camper in a pull thru camp spot. Pad was paved and VERY nice. Walking distance to the clean, air conditioned bath/rest rooms which were the best bath houses I've seen camping so far. Wildlife was abundant as deer would walk thru the campground and lots of birds to watch. Had... More

The park has walking trails. Bike trails and a small beach. Plus adequate camping areas. Haven't seen tent areas. Small water park for kids. Safe.

We were coming from Michigan and booked a campsite in advance. We had car trouble on the way down and didn't arrive until nighttime, when the ranger station was no longer open. We got to our campsite which was completely flooded, no place to put a tent. Since it was too late to officially change sites we set up at... More

We loved going to "the beach" with our toddler without having to leave our state. Although the online map of the park is a bit unclear there are bathrooms and showers near the sandy beach area. There was no hand soap or towels, so that's another thing to pack. There are trees on the beach that provide some shade --... More

They have a nice sandy beach on the shore of Lake Pontchartrain. Even a few trees to catch some shade. Nearby is a nice splash park for the kids. They also have several trails that you can either hike or ride bikes on. Although we did not camp out this time, we have in the past and it's a beautiful... More

They have large covered areas for dining near the lake (incl picnic tables) as well as picnic tables and shelters sprinkled throughout the park. Nice bike trails, nice hiking in tall trees and an unexpectedly good beach area. The (lake) cabins are new and in high demand. book early. family camping areas are good.

The park has been slow to improve since Katrina and Isaac, but I feel they've done a good job so far. The area is full of wildlife and the bike trails are very nice. There is still a way to go on recovery, but well worth the time.

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.
