We stayed at this park as part of a caravan tour. It served its purpose very well. All the sites are pull-through. Not a lot of spacing between sites. The grounds are well cared for. The bathrooms were clean and convenient. For vacation destinations we prefer state parks, but when traveling the country to "see" things, a park like this will do just fine. Nice location for visiting Cajun country. Loved the food, the culture, the music of the people of this area.

Nice little city RV park in Abbeville, LA. We had a great site that backed into the woods. Gravel pad. We're here on a caravan of the Cajun Country and so far this is best park out of 3. Note no restrooms or showers and no tents allowed. If you're self contained would highly recommend this park. Even met a couple fr0m Abbeville who camp here just to get the feel of being in the woods. Would highly recommend if visiting Cajun Country.

An okay campground for visiting Cajun Country and New Iberia. We're here with a group and this is base camp for a few days. We're basically in a grass field with a small cement pad, full hook-ups, cable TV and really good WiFi at the moment. The laundry room and bathrooms are adequate. Would like to see a little more money spent on infrastructure. For visiting the area, the campground is fine. Louisiana State Parks better for vacation destinations.

We were here to begin a tour with our trailer with 26 other trailers. Very friendly check-in. We were taken to our site and helped to back in. We were in the inside loop that faced the clubhouse and play area. The weather was rainy so there was not much going on in the campground. There seemed like there might have been a lot of seasonals on the premises because I saw a lot of trailers but no people. There were two toilets and 2 showers which didn't seem like enough for the size of the campground, but I think most of the trailers were self contained and didn't need them. Don't know what that would be like if the weather was nice and there were lots of people around. We were parked on grass with a picnic table and fire pit. The facilities for us were fine for why we were there but would not make this a camping/vacation destination. Lots to see and do in Cajun Country. Loved the ambiance of the country side, the people, the food, and the scenery. A must do is the zydeco breakfast at Cafe des Amis in Breaux Bridge which is about 20 minutes away. Get in line by 7:15 a.m. for a real fun experience.

This is another beautiful Louisiana State Park. We had a beautiful flat site that backed up to the woods and also had woods on the door side. Some of the sites have decks. We were in the south loop and preferred it to the north loop except their bathrooms were nicer. When is the last time you saw a trough urinal and gang showers in a bathroom? Antiquated, yes. Clean, yes. Some of the sites have terrible slopes so be careful when choosing a site. Lots to do in this park and I'm sure it's really beautiful in the spring and fall. I'd be concerned in the summer about bugs because of the amount of water around. The park is hilly. The WiFi was pretty useless but our Verizon MiFi worked well. ATT&T did not work so well. They really need to update the bathrooms in the south loop and make more of them available especially to the farthest end of the loop. Would definitely stay here again.

This was another great Louisiana State Park. Sites were nicely spaced. Most all backed up to the woods. Most all had wood decks attached to the paved pads. Restrooms were clean and convenient. The park had multiple areas of interest, i.e., pond, river, hiking trails, nature center. Would give this park a 10 if cell service was a little stronger. Highly recommend. (P.S. Check out Charlie's and Lil' Miss Winnies for food in Springfield, and Paul's in next town of Ponchatoula for breakfast or lunch and antique shopping.)

The park itself is huge. The campground is just a small part of the park. We were camping here to be close to New Orleans and didn't take advantage of anything the park had to offer. Most of the amenities were geared towards warmer weather and it was colder when we were there in January. There is a lot of standing water in marshy areas and I would be concerned about bug activity in warmer weather. I liked the fact the camping area was arranged so that all the sites backed up to a natural area as opposed to backing up to another trailer. A number of the sites had decks attached directly to the site that I would look for if we were to stay there again.

We had a beautiful campsite in this park number 73. It was spacious with no one behind us or to our right. Lots of foliage. The ground was sand which you were constantly sweeping up. The bathrooms were as clean as they could keep them. With all the sand and moisture, it was almost impossible to keep them clean. The bathrooms themselves were dated and could be updated. I noticed that a new loop was being constructed and I'm sure that will have nicer facilities. The attraction of this campground is the springs where there were 3 manatees when we were there. Quite a number of people were swimming and snorkeling in the spring but it was definitely too cold for us.

This was a beautiful Florida State Park that had a lot of attractions in the area. The drive through the park was beautiful. The pier in the park was the longest pier I'd ever seen. We'd walk daily on the pier and visit with the fishermen. Biking in the park was great. Of course it's always about the campsite and ours #61 was just okay. It was a little short and directly across from the dump station. Why they put the dump station right in the campground is beyond me. Usually they are a little way away from the campsites. We were in the loop with all the foliage which I think is the better of the two. The campsites on the outside of the loop looked to be the largest and that is what I'd choose if I returned. The other loop was closer to the water but the sites were right on top of one another without any foliage in between. And you couldn't see the water from your campsite so I don't know what the advantage would be. The town the campground was in was really interesting. It had lots of shops and restaurants. I'd definitely stay at the campground again.

This could be a great park except when we were there the noseeum bugs kept us in the trailer with the a/c on or forced us out of the campsite either in our car or bike. We were on the backside of the loop which I didn't like. Maybe if we had been closer to the water which was on higher ground, we would have had more of a breeze which would of lessened the amount of bugs that were driving us crazy. Also the sites closer to the water had some great views. There was a great pier in the park that you had to drive to that was fun to walk and watch all the fishermen. If you were an angler, this would be a great park. Biking was great if you went out of the park and to the right. If you turned left you had to go over a bridge which was a little unnerving for a novice biker. The beaches outside the park were beautiful. I don't think we'd return because there were more beautiful parks that suited our needs better.

St Joe State Park has one of the most beautiful beaches we've seen so far on this trip. Beautiful shoreline with sand dunes that seem to stretch for miles. The campground itself was good. The sites were of various sizes and ours was one of the narrower. We couldn't put out our awning because of the trees. There are two loops and we definitely preferred the one we were in. The other loop seemed to be more crowded. Nice biking and hiking. Would definitely stay again.

LowKey is something you won't find anywhere else. 3 rv sites. A small 50's motel with a Tiki Bar overlooking a back water with magnificent sunsets. The sites all face the water with wonderful views. Dramatic high and low tides that provide great viewing of birdlife. The sites are close to one another but that didn't distract from the uniqueness of the place. The Tiki Bar attracted locals and campers from the park next door. Always lively conversation when the place was full. LowKey is a very short drive or bike ride from the main part of town. There were a number of restaurants on the waterfront and a nice pier where the locals go fishing. A unique experience that I'd highly recommend.

Yes it's gravel. Yes there are just a few trees scattered around. Yes there is some road noise. Did I mention the ocean views? Did I mention sitting in your lawn chairs watching all the bird life, the Dolphins at play, or the occasional shark? Spend a few extra bucks and get one of the sites that put you right on the ocean. We stayed here a week and had a great home. Great location to travel to neighboring towns. We'll definitely be back. Oh, great office personnel also.

What's not to like? Efficient, courteous check in, beautiful beach and pool, plentiful clean restrooms, great bike trails, large sites of all kinds. We already booked two weeks next year. That should tell you something. One of our favorite campgrounds the past 5 months of almost continuous camping.

Site 39 was beautiful. Partial water view through the trees. Loved everything about this park with one exception. No cell service. Would highly recommend. Natchez was one of the highlights of our travels so far this past 4 months.
