Reviewed May 7, 2013

Nice, well-maintained park with campgrounds, hiking trails and a nifty water park for kids. Good birding, and some interesting flora too.

“Quiet and peaceful”
Reviewed May 3, 2013

We spent a week here back in early April. they are remodeling the park so only half of it is open. The laundry facility is free. There are ponds for fishing and a new water play area for kids that should be opening soon. We met some wonderful people and enjoyed touring the small towns in the area.

“Pretty and Hidden Privacy.”
Reviewed February 7, 2013

Great place to spend a few days recharging. The park is out-of-the-way and very peaceful, a great place to relax after spending time exploring Cajun Country in the city and towns in the heart of Acadiana.

“Beatiful scenery & it even has a splash pad! Great for adults & kids!”
Reviewed February 1, 2013 via mobile

The park is pretty new & clean. The water, electricity hook ups worked great. Most of the camping spots are shady & roomy. The scenery is wonderfull! It is set back in the Louidiana swamp & has a splash pad, canoes, & great fishing spots. Would go back again! The town of abeville is 10 minutes away with many attractions & great canun food.

“Brand new park”
Reviewed January 25, 2013 via mobile

This park is another of the generally great Louisiana state parks. It is quite new, clean and neat. The sites are large, and the electric and water hookups are in great condition. Lovely clean showers, and even free laundry! Nearby Abbeville hosts Shucks Restaurant, best Cajun/Creole food anywhere!
