    Our family visited this park for the first time in late February of 2013. We chose it for its proximity to New Orleans, far enough away, but easy to access via the impressive toll bridge that runs North to South, traversing Lake Ponchtrain. We reserved a tent site online. Arriving after dark, we were pointed in the right direction and given some useful tips by the friendly campground security man. Reviewers who have mentioned the road to the tent sites being hard to find are correct, particularly in the dark. It’s a bit “off road” and not well marked. It really is there, though, just before the playground. The tent sites were a bit more spread out than the r.v. sites, beneath pine trees, and backed up by forested land. Sites had picnic tables and fire rings, and a shared spiggot a short way off. We camped in site 17, near the playground. If the park had been busier, we wouldn’t have had much privacy, but it wasn’t. The playground was nice, new, and was good for kids of all sizes. We experienced a tremendous electrical storm that caused us to evacuate. Water rose several inches deep, flooding our campsite & causing us to abandon a campsite for the first time in our family’s camping history. The tent sites closer to the front entrance seemed to be on higher, dryer ground. Unfortunately, since we left early we missed snveeing the historic home and hiking the swamp trail. The facilities were about150 yards from our campsite, and fabulous! Recently built, the bath house boasted fine caftsmanship in the architectural details. Under one roof were six private baths, three for each gender, one each being wheelchair accessible. Each of these bathrooms had a toilet, sink, and walk in shower, and was very clean. There were also laundry facilities. The r.v. sites were well shaded, and throughout the park were stately oaks dripping with Spanish Moss. There was a neat boardwalk with a fish cleaning station. The night sounds were a blend of nature, traffic & something industrial sounding. While this is a small park, it’s very worth visiting.

    Very nice for a day trip. Good to fish or relax. Somewhat small. Great for RV and camping with well maintaimed playgrounds.
