This park has a lot of natural beauty, cypress swamps and ponds, a beautiful river running along the edge of it, and lots of trails. On the other side of the coin, the place just looked a little worn down due to a lack of maintenance. Lots of potholes in the driving areas, one of the showers look pretty bad from the outside, just kind of had a feeling of being worn down. We would stay there again, but it could surely use some sprucing up.
Pretty location. Slept to the sounds of many frogs. Watched a hereon hunt for its breakfast behind my camping spot. Signs near the park's waters warn of crocs. The park is in a swamp next to the river. In spring/summer/fall I'm sure the bugs are bad. My stay was mid-winter and comfortable & big free. Camping sites are somewhat level. All are gravel with the campground 'roads' a bit potholed. Bath facilities and bathrooms are clean & maintained, and like stated in another's review older and a bit worn. Sign at bathroom notes Louisiana keeps cutting the state park's budget. The location received a 3-star as the sites are not all that level and potholed.
