Fantastic find! Very peaceful and quiet country setting. We really enjoyed staying a couple of nights here and seeing the bayou country. Easy to get to, about 1.5 miles off of Hwy 82. No amenities here, but sites are back-in, flat, gravel, full hook-up with great water pressure and steady electric. Open sky for satellite dish and shade trees at the rear of the sites. The owner may be the nicest guy in all of Louisianna! He's not on-site, but will swing by if he knows you're coming (or already popped-in).

Date of Stay:

$17.50 PA rate seemed a little high for the off season. We didn't check out the facilities like we usually do, but the sites were nice enough. Everyone mentions the trains, but I didn't see anyone emphasize that they sound like they're actually traveling through your rig. We were also treated to the sounds of tanks firing on the target ranges early in the morning. There was always someone in the office (during the adequate office hours), and they were extremely friendly and knowledgeable about the area. We would return and try to enjoy the CG during peak season when we could better enjoy what it has to offer.

Terrible! Pulled in and couldn't find anyone. Phone call only connected to answering machine. Drove into the site area and asked a man in one of the other four rigs if there was a host or employee around. He stated that a young kid just escorted him to a site less than five minutes prior. We walked back to the house/office and were finally successful in getting the kid to come out and take our money. We were especially excited about the 40 dimes we received as change! The grassy sites very unlevel. Water pressure low. Electrical boxes in bad shape. Sewer "broken" in the site we were offered. Trash was strewn all around and it appeared someone had recently used our site as a burn pit. We thought that it would at least be a quiet, country experience, but no...trains and traffic noise was significant. $11 was PA rate and still about $6 overpriced. If you're considering stopping...don't!

Passport America price was $14.50. Very nicely landscaped lot next to hotel/restaurant, but also right next to the highway/main street. Utilities very good. Sites are level and all are approximately 50 foot pull-through. No office on site. Transactions done via phone according to the owner who just happened to be on site this particular day.

Date of Stay:

Flat sites, shade trees, and full hookups. How can you go wrong at $7.50 per night (PA rate)? All sites are back-in and the first pedestal we tried was inoperable. We couldn't get TV via antenna. This CG is basically in a field next to the city park/pool and adjacent to a mobile home park. Very quiet.

Date of Stay:

Price reflects PA price after tax. The owners are the friendliest people you could wish to meet. I just don't think their heart is into running this place anymore. They clean the restrooms and showers daily, but the rest is quite neglected. Flies are bad due to the cattle yard directly adjacent. All utilities/CATV work well. Wi-fi was slow. Movie theatre, Pizza Hut and grocery store are all next door neighbors. Regardless, the campground is quiet for a good night's rest.

Date of Stay:

Price is right with PA discount! Sites are small, all hookups are in good working order. Restrooms/showers were very clean. Great cable connection for $2 extra per night. The manager is THE reason to stay here versus other parks. Make sure you pull in with thick skin and immediately ready for banter. If you're OK with being forced out of your rig (not by gunpoint, for us at least) in the evening to socialize and eat/drink with the most WIDELY diverse group of guests, then you need to stay here! Seriously though, this manager gives the CG a Sturgis-like atmosphere while ensuring the park is quiet, calm and safe for a good night's sleep. We regret having to leave after one night and would return in a heartbeat.

Rate reflects PA discount. Easy access 1/4 mile from highway down well maintained gravel drive. The pull-throughs are all located in a relative flat, well-compacted gravel lot and delineated by half-barrel flower planters, picnic tables, and of course the utility hook-ups. Many newly planted trees around the perimeter will provide some nice shade in a couple of years. Laundry facility was immaculate. Quality of utilities are good. There are no restrooms/showers here, nor is there anything for children. Two over the air channels available, but open sky for satellite is excellent. Owners obviously take pride in their park.

Date of Stay:

This is a tight little park filled with mostly seasonal guests...all of whom were extremely friendly and tidy. The owner will jump through hoops to help you out with virtually any problem you may have. He's constantly in and out of the restrooms and laundry room keeping them immaculate. Most nights during peek season (June-Aug) there are only a couple of overnight spots available that usually fill by early afternoon. This is a first-come, first-served park that doesn't take reservations. The price is less than half of all the other RV parks in the Jackson area. Utilities are good. Road noise is considerable. There are no games/playgrounds for the kids, but they are definitely welcome. There is a gas station and grocery store directly across the street. Trust me, DO NOT pass up an open spot here when you're visiting Jackson/Teton/Yellowstone! There's too much to do in the area to worry about (and pay for) amenities at an RV park.

Date of Stay:

Must be self contained here. There are very limited generator hours in some sections of the CG and no generators allowed in other sections. Centrally located water spigots can be several hundred feet away. $21 seems very high for a NPS no-service CG, but this is of course the Yellowstone/Teton area. There are pit toilet facilities that were quite clean. One dump station at the entrance/exit was very crowded at check-out time (as you can imagine for a 360 space CG!).

Date of Stay:

Price was very good for a NPS CG in the middle of Yellowstone! Pretty CG that fills up very fast. No generators are allowed here.

Date of Stay:

Road noise is significant. Restrooms/showers/rec room/laundry were not immaculate, but satisfactorily clean. The pool and hot tub were extremely nice and clean. The grounds could use some attention with mowing, weed-eating, and ant control (although we prefer this to a pretentious, manicured RV park). Roads are paved, wide and in good condition. Big rigs should have no problems. Pull-through sites have concrete slabs. Back-in sites (aka tent sites with 30A power and water) are all grass and level. Staff was friendly and there is a definite sense of camaraderie among the seasonal guests which seem to occupy about 75% of the park. If not for the road noise, we would rate the park an 8 or 9 especially considering the PA price of $11 per night. Great value and we would definitely stay again!

Date of Stay:

Sites are flat and utilities are good. Lots of room especially considering this 9-acre park is 99 percent vacant. According to the owners, very few transient RVs use this place. During our stay there were 5 or 6 semi-permanent trailers on site, all of which were reasonably clean and uncluttered. Evidently, the heyday for this park was during oil boom times when the workers camped here. The dirt road into the property had several large potholes and ruts, but nothing that caused us to bottom-out. The latrines/showers were clean but unused as is the large gathering room. There as one washer and dryer under patio cover but we didn't use them so we're unsure of condition and cleanliness. There are no scheduled activities here nor playgrounds for little children. This CG would be ideal for large group gatherings. We'd stay again due to price and extreme quiet!

This CG has a lot of potential and the new owners seem to be making progress towards significant improvements. They were extremely friendly and helpful especially considering we pulled in the evening before Thanksgiving Day. The beach and playground on the lake shore would be fantastic in warm weather. The boat launch, store, gas, and propane station are all right on site. Fishing is touted to be great. Two cabins in the CG are very nice. The RV sites need some work, especially the placement of utilities and delineation of the sites. We had to park perfectly in a pull-through so all our lines/cords could reach the connections which were scattered in all different directions. The septic tank we hooked to overflowed and we had to back up 15' to connect to another. The sites are nice and level, and there should be no problems maneuvering big rigs. There is presently no restroom/shower facility, but if/when built and the sites are spruced up a bit, this CG would rate a 9 or 10 in our minds. The Wi-Fi was decent at an extra $2/day. The PA price of $8.50 makes this place a great bargain.

This is an absolutely beautiful state park with immaculately maintained facilities. In our minds, the only thing that keeps this from rating as a perfect 10 was the lack of a fire ring at our site. The PA price of $10 is unbelievably low for such a nice place. The CG is extremely quiet with lots of wildlife. A large beach and playground would be wonderful for the kids in warm weather. The night lighting was similar to what you would expect in a neighborhood. Although this makes for a safer park, it detracts a bit from the camping experience. There is only one pull-through site, but all the sites are very roomy. We'll definitely return to the CG when in the vicinity again!
