In a panic of needing a place to stay after our plans changed, we ended up booking two nights at Lake Louisa State Park. Unfortunately, I booked the wrong two nights and needed an additional night on the front end. I ended up with one night in one site and the other two in another (I didn't need the third night, but kept it anyway). We knew nothing about this park, but the reviews I read were good. We arrived and explained our situation to the Ranger at the gate and she found us a site for both nights. We backed into our site, which is quite narrow, but we loved the trees behind us and that we were not on top of another site. As mentioned, most sites are gravel and don't have sewer. There are a few with sewer hookups, but I couldn't find a pattern to them. The restrooms and showers in our loop where very clean. They have good firewood for sale and the camp host even suggested we wait for a new delivery, which arrived just as we were going back to our site.
The park is huge, with a lot of hiking and equestrian trails and lots of paved roads for biking. It is quite hilly for florida, which makes it challenging for this flatlander to bike! There are multiple lakes and canoes available for rent, or you can bring your own.
UPDATE: We have returned to Lake Louisa for a longer stay and still are happy with the park and the campground. We stayed in a different loop, but the restrooms and showers were as clean as before. We would highly recommend it. We camped at Lake Louisa State Park in a Fifth Wheel.
There are several stores and restaurants nearby, it's a great area for full timers to stock up and get various odds and ends.

Nice sites. Smaller park, 60 sites. Many hiking trails and good biking within the park. Kayak and canoe rentals. Nice rural park away from the craziness of Florida We camped at Lake Louisa State Park in a Travel Trailer.
Close to Orlando/ Disney and shopping.

This is a good park to bike ride, kayak, hike and fish. The host and most of the rangers are great. They were having a Triathlon while we were there so could not go to the beach on one of the lakes. Getting on to 27 going north can be trying and dangerous depending on what time of day you leave the camp ground.
The roads are paved with some shape curves getting to the campground from the gate. Sites are pea gravel with some being not to level. There is no store in the camp ground and is about a eight mile drive to any were to buy anything. They do rent kayaks canoes and bicycles. We camped on site 41 and it was very level with no shade. We camped at Lake Louisa State Park in a Travel Trailer.
Not so far from the Orlando attractions that you could not use this for a base to see Orlando. Shopping is from five to ten miles north for most things.

The stay was OK. The park was nothing special. We camped here in a 40' motorhome on site 028. Our site was very unlevel, but, we managed to get the bus level with lot's of blocks on one side. Privacy between sites was basically non-existent where we were. Interior roads are asphalt and sites are small crushed stone. Very little shade at any of the sites that we saw. Restrooms were clean, was able to get 4GLte with Verizon and 12 TV stations with antenna. The park is 22 miles from Disney World. I would probably look for an alternative campground if in the area again in the future. We camped at Lake Louisa State Park in a Motorhome.Undo

This was an inexpensive overnight stop with a level, pull-thru, FHU site. Good OTA and Verizon cell/MiFi coverage. Would stay again. We camped at Lake Louisa State Park in a Motorhome.Undo

An outstanding Florida State Park, within driving distance to Disney. (22 miles) Clean and well maintained. Some sites have sewer, but most are water and electric. We camped at Lake Louisa State Park in a Travel Trailer.Undo

Great little park, quiet quiet quiet, nice camp host who joked with the kids. Campground is pet friendly. Sites are cement on some and hard packed sand with gravel on top. We were on site 7, was a little uneven but a block under the tires fixed that. Nice area for kids with all kinds of bikes. We took the family geocaching for the first time. Was successful on two here but there are many and could keep you busy for a day just doing this. Water pressure was great, bugs were bad that we were in most nights by 7:45 as the fire and bug spray just did not keep them away. We will be back for sure to do more trails and easy bike riding for the kids. We camped at Lake Louisa State Park in a Travel Trailer.Undo

This is a nice park with many miles of hiking trails with well built and maintained boardwalks and docks onto the lakes. The roads in the park are very wide with no trees. Not all the sites are full hookup. The sites have little or no shade, all are pea gravel, and very narrow but have a side section with picnic table. Our biggest issue was the level of our back-in site. It was a very steep grade from front to rear. All of the back-in sites located lake side are like this. Within 10 miles north or south is a WalMart and Publix grocery store. You can rent canoes and kayaks. We camped at Lake Louisa State Park in a Fifth Wheel.Undo

This campground is a few miles south of Clermont. Once one gets south of Ocala, Florida it becomes very crowded. The multi lane highways are daunting for driving a RV with toad, but Lake Louisa is a nice respite from the busy roads. The sites are spaciously, situated around three loops, and all sites have electric and water. We had good over the air TV and our Verizon card worked well. Some sites are partially shaded, while others remain in the bright sun all day. The bathrooms are very clean and the showers are spacious and private. During our stay, nearby prescribed burns went on each day, leading us to occasionally wonder if the campground were in the path of the burn. The rate shown includes sales tax of 10.5%, reminiscent of RVing in Canada (apparently "Lake Louisa" can charge a local option tax of 3.5% on top of the state tax of 7%). For those who like to ride Florida's bike trails, this is a particularly good place to stay as the Van Fleet and West Orange trails are close by. If you ride in the area on a recumbent bike, check out Central Florida recumbent riders on Google for trice-weekly rides in the area. We'd stay here again if in the area.

Roads around the campground are paved and wide. Parking and setup is very easy. Approximately, half of the sites have sewage hookups. Great campground for fishing and canoeing. If interested in swimming, I would recommend taking along a bicycle or a car as the swimming area is about four miles from the campground. The park is very clean and well kept up. Sites are not very private, so you get a real chance to know your neighbors. This didn't bother us as that is park of the fun of camping for us.

Stayed at Site 004, which is a 75' pull through with water and electric. (Some sites here have sewer, but not this one). Although the site is very long, it is not very wide. Adding to that issue is a tree on one side of the parking area and a concrete post on the opposite side (guarding the water and electric pedestals). It's a nice site for a bunch of tents. A 42' RV - Not so much. In order to get into this site so that the RV's door opens up to the little area where the picnic table is, we had to drive the wrong way on the one-way loop around this camping circle. No biggie. There are several sites like this, so many people have to do the same thing. Television and OTA television signals were good, as was Verizon cell service. Our Overdrive worked well for Internet (Sprint). 50 amp service was stable and water pressure was good. Showers houses were clean and always had hot water. The showers have latching doors. There is no shower curtain to separate the shower from the dressing area of each stall though. There is a washing machine and dryer at each of the two shower houses. One note: There is a small, rather scraggly, orange grove on park property. We were told by the rangers that this land is leased out and being studied as part of a citrus canker eradication program. Citrus canker is a contagious bacteria that kills citrus trees. It is not a danger to humans, although we can track the bacteria around on our shoes. The area is clearly marked to keep out, but just about every time we went past it there were people tromping through it, some picking the oranges. If you stay here, please don't be a moron: Leave the oranges alone and stay out of the groves! We camped at Lake Louisa State Park in a Motorhome.Undo

Great park - tons of hiking, wildlife spotting, canoe/kayak/trolling motor lakes, fishing docks as well. A very clean park - restrooms at campground were immaculate. Biggest negative was NO SHADE and no hope of trees growing around any camp site. Bring your own shade and you'll have a nice, relaxing time. This park is a definite do-over for us. Happy Camping!

Good paved interior roads. Large spaces, full hook ups available with sewer. Sites are gravel/sand. Quiet. No shade. Pretty typical state park campground. Can't beat the Florida Resident Senior discount rate. About 6 miles back to Clermont for shopping or dining or about 12 to Disney area. Gate closes at dark so times vary. There is a coded keypad for entry. We camped at Lake Louisa State Park in a Motorhome.Undo

Stayed here June 26 till July 1st. We enjoy the fishing at the two docks on two lakes. Three separate areas to camp and sites are quite large. Close to restaurants and stores. Park was quite empty during our stay. Lots of hiking trails around for hikers. Sites are mostly in sun with little shade available, but nice sites.

We camped at this campground for 8 days for my kids' springbreak. We used the trip to visit Disney world's theme parks. It was very convenient, besides saving us tons of dollars in hotel accommodation expenses. The campground is a short drive to Disney and has no traffic issues since we didn't have to travel through Orlando city center. The campground is clean and well taken care off. However, I still don't know why the authorities didn't consider a shorter route into the camping area. It should be about 3 miles from the gate to the campsites. The lake from which the campground got its name is not within view at all. It's some distance from the campsites, so we couldn't tell the condition. However, the two lakes with walking distances to the campsites are prohibited for swimming because of gators. We saw some during our trip. We will definitely return to this campground if we make another trip to Orlando area. We camped at Lake Louisa State Park in a Travel Trailer.Undo
