My husband and I spent our 38th anniversary getaway in one of the newly remodeled cabins at the park. The cabins are on piers over Lake Ponchartrain. There is a boardwalk that leads up to the cabin. Our cabin had a beautiful porch directly overlooking the lake with a screened in side porch. 2 cabins share steps that go down... More

The remodeled cabins recently reopened (in Sept 2015) after damage from a hurricane. The camping area and the cabins (1-12) are now all open. We enjoyed our long weekend in cabin #11. In the literature and on the website, it says to bring towels, soap, etc., but it was all provided by the park. It would have saved us a... More

Enjoyed the nature trails but were disappointed that the boardwalk going out to the bayou appeared to have been heavily damaged a long time ago and has not been repaired. It just ends and you can't get out to the water. The visitor center was closed and appeared to be used as storage. The area was weed covered as well.... More

Is a bit over an hour's drive from Baton Rouge, worth it. Nice swimming areas, a small sand beach, good restroom/shower facilities. Can get crowded/busy; go on a weekday. Several good walking/hiking trails. Many nifty picnic areas. Also offers tent and RV camping, and cabins with great Lake views, lake access.

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.
