From the woods to the lake

Very Nice park to just chill out. It was very clean and had most everything you need to enjoy the day at the park, picnic tables, covered areas, beach, dock, parking, bathrooms and showers. Very enjoyable day.

They don't charge much, but with so much in Mandeville that's free, why go to this park? And the staff at the entrance are rude and unhelpful. Skip this and go to the Trace or the Lake for free.

This is a great spot to stay and explore the North Coast. The bike trail is convenient and a great way to travel on bikes to see Abita Springs, Mandeville and Slidell. The facilities are nice. The other hiking trails are a little less okay.

The park is well kept and improvements have been made over the years. I have been going to the park as long as I can remember. Now we bring our grandkids who just love the water feature. It is a great place to go as a family.

We love the playground, the water park for small kids and the lakefront beach. We live in Mandeville, so it is an easy access recreational activity for our family.

You really won't believe you're in Louisiana. This State Park not only has a lot of history, but it's clean, safe, beautiful and has a fabulous beach on Lake Pontchartrain! They also have great cabins for small or large parties. New Orleans is only 25 minutes away, and Old Mandeville is right down the road with amazing things to do.... More

Lots of open spaces for baseball or football. Wooded areas. Playground. Picnic tables. Beach wasn't open the day we were there, but nice sandy beach with a lookout you can walk out to. Several weddings on this day made the scenes especially beautiful.

This is a very attractive state park on the north shore of Lake Pontchartrain just east of Mandeville. It’s a nice place for hiking, cycling, bird watching, picnicking and camping. There are cabin facilities but some are closed presently due to damage sustained in Hurricane Isaac; check the website for current information. An RV park is available for trailers and... More
