Nice park. Busy on weekends

A very nice park to take the family to but watch going on the weekends. It's usually packed. Check out the cabins for rent.

Fontainebleau is a great state park in the Mandeville area. If you have kids, there is a nice play area with swings and other equipment. This area is located near the beachfront, and is not usually crowded. There are also benches for parents, and the area is filled with sand, so the inevitable falls wont be as painful. I have...

Was unable to get full hook up due to limited availability at this park. Grass needed to be cut at camp sites. I know budget cuts hit everywhere but there are people trying to use these parks and these are our tax dollars at work. Roads were nice and pad was nice and level where I was. Large amount of...

Rented the cabin on the lake. They are big with plenty of space for at least 8 To 10 people to sleep. The hard part is getting one. You need to look on the state park website well in advance. They are right on the water and you can drive your boat and anchor close to the cabin. They sit... More

It says on their website to bring own towels but they had them there. Water is very shallow and fishing is not good. The best thing... More

Our parks need some help in the upkeep. Roads with huge potholes and cave ins, the cabin was nicely appointed but wasn't clean. We swept and wiped down everything and then sprayed to attempt to feel comfortable in sleeping in there. We went for fishing, and no fish were biting, the splash pad wasn't very large and didn't have many... More
