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

The cabin was nice size. Queen bed & 4 bunks. 2 couches and large dining table. T.V No toaster in the kitchen. Had a real bad roach problem...saw 8 during my 3 night stay. 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

This State park has a few short walking/hiking trails. Also contains a large field area for picnics and smaller kids playground. It has a splash park which is ideal for hot summers. Also there is a fishing pier over the lake and also a "beach" on Lake Pontchartrain. Lots of camping and RV options I believe as well.

Drove in just to check it out. Great scenery! Trees, nature trails, lake front beach, and old sugar mill remains.

We visited mid-week just to take our grandson on his first experience of a sandy beach. The beach was pretty dirty (cans, butts), there was an advisory on the quality of the water (which did not prevent some brave souls from swimming in it - yugh!) and dog mess outside the toilet in which there was no paper. The boardwalk... More

I'd like to preface this by saying that we have stayed at this state park numerous times and never had any issues; however, I was saddened by what we experienced this weekend. I'd like to think that it was just due to it being a holiday weekend and will not be the norm. We are a family of 4 (2... More

My family and I visited Fontainebleau State Park this past Memorial Day weekend to play on the beach. We were shocked by the condition of the place when we arrived. My wife had to use the restroom so she went to the facility located near the beach while my daughter and I carried out chairs and cooler to the beach.... More
