I always love this place.

Very nice, peaceful. Great location for camping. Clean, easy access to Pontchartrain lake. It is worth to visit it.

Nice place, clean bathrooms and showers for camping. I've used the cabins before too, and those are really great if you don't feel like sleeping outside!

My husband and I ran the 10 mile option of the gulf coast half marathon series. The course was beautiful. I loved running along the lake. We'll definitely be back next year!

I have ran the Gulf Coast Half Marathon for a few years now and it starts and finishes at the state park. The park is very clean and a great place to camp out or go for a hike.

The park was beautiful and everything seemed well maintained except the boardwalk back in the alligator area. Many boards were rotted through. The peer and the beach were lovely.

The cabins are on stilts over Lake Pontchartrain, with a view of the causeway and a bit of the NOLA skyline 24 miles away. Each of the 12 cabins is furnished with sturdy, comfy furniture, pots/pans, a flat screen TV, and 1 queen, 4 bunks as well as a queen sofa bed. The absolute best part is the wide front... More

The pads are paved as are the roads. They offer a beach on Lake Ponchartrain and a water park. We had water and electric hookups. There is no cable but we... More
