We frequently visit state parks in Louisiana and this is one of the most beautiful state parks we have stayed at. Sites are very clean, our site had a huge deck and a boat dock on the water so we could tie our boat up when in the camper. Staff was very friendly, park ranger did regular patrol and everyone was treated like family. Fishing was great, my 9 year old daughter caught fish all 5 days we were there. The sites are not very level, so you may need to bring some extra blocks, but the atmosphere in the park makes up for the unlevel sites. The bath house was under construction for remodeling so only one side was open with a schedule posted for men and women usage. We did not use the bath house so I cannot comment on them. Boat dock was in very good shape and can launch any size boat. They had been having a lot of rain prior to our arrival, so a couple of the roads had some potholes, but not too bad. The parish road leading up to the state park is in pretty bad shape, but it is not part of the state park, just be careful and go slow in that bad section. We have already made reservations to spend another week here.

Great park with very friendly staff. Our spot was on the lake and was very relaxing. Park was very clean, however sites were close together. Interstate noise was not bad. Costs extra for paddle boats and putt putt golf. We will stay here again.

Beautiful park in rural setting. WiFi and cable worked great. Bathrooms very clean. Fishing pond enjoyed by my daughter and I. Park layout is very cramped, small sites and narrow roads. Rules were not enforced, pets running around and the owner not picking up after it.

Staff was very friendly and helpful. Campground was extremely clean and nicely manicured. Bath house was the cleanest that I have ever seen. The owner and his staff go above and beyond to make sure the guests are taken care of. Pool opened the day we were there, kids enjoyed it. We will definitely be back. They do not accept credit cards - cash or debit card only.

We recently spent the weekend at Cajun Campground. The last time we were here was 2 years ago, and we really enjoyed it then. This time, it did not appear to be very well maintained. The lake appeared to be a dumpsite, trash all over in the lake. People would not pick up after their pets, dog mess all over the place. Bathroom was fairly clean, but very hot and uncomfortable. Our campsite was full of bottle caps and fire ants. There are 2 dumpsters in the park, and both are near the campers, and the smell was horrible. Pool was clean, but cost extra to use it. The campground staff were very friendly.

Very nice park located across the levee in the Atchafalaya Basin, and connected to Lake Dauterive. We had a campsite on the water and our boat was able to remain in the water at the dock behind our camp. Very nice bike trails, and park was well maintained. Security is constantly providing patrols, and all employees are very friendly and knowledgable. The only thing I would like to see improved is the opening of the splash pad. Last year there was some issues, it was closed and never re-opened. Would be the perfect place for kids if the splash pad would be open.

This has all the luxuries of a resort. Palm trees, 2 pools, casino, sno cones, store, and tiki bar. Kids had a great time, and wife and I really enjoyed the resort as well. Highly recommend Cajun Palms.

Stayed here for 4 months while working in the Piceance Creek Area. Park was very clean, camper was on the banks of White River. It was nice to get off of work and fish for trout. Manager, is very friendly and helpful. Park is mostly long term rentals, but a few spots were open for overnight. No playground or swimming pool for the kids. Would recommend for a couple of nights or for workers in the Piceance Creek area.

Very nice campground. Hiking trails are made with small pebbles throughout the park. Good places to fish with the kids. Access to the Vermilion River. Spots are very large and very private. Kids loved the splash pads. Roads are gravel, but if everyone obeys speed limit, dust is kept to a minimum. We plan on returning for a week during Thanksgiving Holidays.

We spent father's day weekend at Yogi Bear. It was awesome, to pay one price and do anything you want as many times as you want. The staff was very friendly and helpful and the events that were planned were awesome. Nice clean restrooms, swimming pool, and water play area for the little ones. My 4 year old and I went on hayrides each day and spent the rest of the time doing things in the park. We have already made reservations for 2 more trips to Yogi Bear.

Beautiful campground with lots of trees and beautiful lake. Staff at the front gate were very friendly and knowledgable. I would have given the park a 10/10 but we lost electricity one night for almost 4 hours, no bad weather. The park has 2 emergency numbers for after hours, the first number was disconnected, and the other number was for the on call park ranger. It was a pager, and my phone call was never returned. We camped here for 6 nights.
