Fontainbleau is a really pretty park with huge old oak trees dripping with Spanish moss. Lake Ponchartrain is a short walk from the campsites and has a pier, small "beach." There are also several hiking trails including a boardwalk through water and tall grasses. We saw a number of deer casually grazing in the campground and saw photos of a coyote taken by another camper. We also met some nuisance raccoons who were pretty fearless and were pretty determined to find some food at our site! One final note, the bathrooms were super clean -- our camp host ladies did an amazing job! We camped at Fontainebleau State Park in a Travel Trailer.
There are several interesting towns nearby if you want to go out to eat or shop -- Abita Springs, Mandeville, and Covington. New Orleans is over the Causeway Bridge across Lake Pontchartrain and takes about 40 minutes. During rainy weather I would avoid the south side of the campground as it is lower and looks like it would be flooded.
