We stay at this state park once a year to visit family. However, this is the first time we have stayed during the summer months. I must say that our stay this time was pretty disappointing. The water spigot at our site and the one next to it were leaking and I do not mean dripping, the water was pouring out of the faucet with no way to shut it off. The picnic table and fire pit were not usable because the weeds had encroached on the parking pad so badly that we could not use them. When we camped here in the past, the sites were raked and clean, ready for occupancy. The trees really need a good trimming. We saw numerous rigs with trees hanging on RVs. The bathhouses were not cleaned very well either. I am not sure whether it is a lack of state funding or if the campground is only taken care of during snow bird season. The campground was not full over the July 4th holiday. This campground is sort of big rig friendly. We had to do some creative parking to keep our truck off the road and many parked on the grass even though the rules did not allow this. The roads are narrow and some of the pull-through sites are shaped in such a way that it is difficult to pull in a big rig. Choose your site carefully. We never saw a park ranger patrolling the campground during our stay. We will return because it is an economical place to stay when visiting family. We camped at Lake Louisa State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

The drive into the park is very long, but there are beautiful views of the surrounding hills and lakes! Our site was very tight and we had almost no room to use anything outside of the rig once our slides were out. There was no shade. The lakes were pretty, but they were littered with garbage near the docks. Lake Louisa swimming looked scary since we saw an alligator in the swimming area! The trail near the creek was beautiful, though! I would stay again and do more hiking. We camped at Lake Louisa State Park in a Motorhome.

Don't accidentally end up on Schofield Road! We re-routed our GPS to skip a couple sharp turns and ended up on this road which is CLAY and over 5 miles long. Our RV and toad were filthy.

Beautiful, quiet state park. The campground was unbelievely quiet. Sites are fairly well spaced. Beautiful setting among small lakes. Great views of sunsets across Lake Hammond from the campground. We had a fairly shady site, but I expect the sites would be brutally hot in summer. Showers and bathrooms were clean, but shower water was lukewarm. Best part of the campground is the huge network of trails. Trails are great for hiking or trail running. Some trails would be fine for offroad biking, but they're a bit sandy. You can take a long hike from the campground to Lake Louisa, or a shorter hike around Lake Hammond. Staff was very friendly and helpful. We spent 5 days there, but could have spent more time. We camped at Lake Louisa State Park in a Travel Trailer.

This state park is fairly isolated which does make it very quiet. RV sites are spaced apart well. When we looked on the site map for a spot, it looked as though we would be close to the water but everything is totally overgrown and impossible to walk around behind any of the sites. It would be nice if the area were scaled back some with even just a dirt path to the water. Our site only had water and electric and was a pull-thru site on gravel; some sites do offer sewer hook-up but you have to check each one on the ReserveAmerica we found out. It was a short walk to the restrooms or a fishing pier for either Dixie Lake or Lake Hammond (Lake Louisa is actually a ways north of the area's campgrounds). We took a hike around Lake Hammond after looking at the trail guide we were given. The trails are not well marked at all (we guessed at it) and are bit overgrown with weeds and shrubs. There were not many campers in the area but all of the campsites looked to need a good mowing and trimming. Considering the price, the grounds should be better maintained. The roads were paved and in good condition making biking around easy. Since it is so remote, star gazing is an option at night. We camped at Lake Louisa State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Looking at the website we picked the site closest to the lake. Unfortunately, we couldn't see it. While walking through the campground we realized only 3 sites had partial lake views. Very disappointing. A little weed whacking would have made for a beautiful sunset view. Our site was overrun with fire ants. I couldn't even sit outside. The hiking trails were so far from the campground that you have to drive to get to them. Bathrooms were clean and park was quiet but we won't be back. We stayed here in a travel trailer.

Beautiful campground. Spacious site with a place to hang our hammock. There was a picnic table and fire pit. Campground was very quiet most of the time. This is snowbird season, so most people were of retirement age, which likely kept the noise level down. We don't watch a lot of tv, but did notice that we picked up many channels with our antennae. As with most state parks, most sites do not have sewer hook ups, but there is a dump station. We camped at Lake Louisa State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Stayed here for ten days. This was a nice campground. We would stay here again. Closed to the Disney parks. (30-40 minutes with traffic) Well worth the drive for the inexpensive cost of the park as compared to parks closer to Disney. We camped at Lake Louisa State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Showcase of Citrus was just a couple miles south of the park. Very neat place with lots to do and decent prices.

We parked here to visit Disney which was a little far, but doable.

This was our first stay at Lake Louisa. We took some time to visit and geocache. There were many to choose from but we choose to stay close to the main road. The sites certainly have room between them and offer some shade. We stayed in #37 with full hookups. TV reception from both Tampa and Orlando. The bathhouse was close and very clean. We will certainly return. We camped at Lake Louisa State Park in a Travel Trailer.

We tracked north to DreamCatcher Hourse farm and rescue. Amazing hour long ride that even took us into the lake. Clermont is a small town but many of the conveniences of a bigger city Wal Mart, Publix, etc. it's a growing suburb of Lake Buena Vista but still quiet enough to enjoy.

Sites have small gravel instead of concrete. TV gets many stations with a normal RV antenna. We camped at Lake Louisa State Park in a Motorhome.

Sites are well enclosed and private feeling (back-in sites, anyhow). Felt a bit older and more run down than other FL state parks we've been to - the picnic table was covered in kids paint from years past, and the clothesline poles looked as if they'd been around for a century. We stayed at site 35, which was fairly level. The park is one of the closest state parks to Disney (and closest campgrounds, for that matter), so good to stay at if visiting the attractions). The hills are wonderful and a nice change of pace from Florida's usual flatness. However, we felt this park/campground was one of the most mediocre we've been to in FL. Probably would not stay again. We camped at Lake Louisa State Park in a Motorhome.

There are 2 Walmarts, north and south on 27. Go to the north Walmart instead of the south (the north clientele is mostly snowbirds due to the 55+ communities, the southern walmart has mostly rednecks). Lots of other stores by the north walmar as well. There's a great restaurant/gastropub to the north called Crooked Spoon which serves DELICIOUS burgers!!

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.

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.
