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.

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.

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.

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. We camped at Lake Louisa State Park in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at Lake Louisa State Park in a Motorhome.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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 Lake Louisa State Park in a Motorhome.

Lake Louisa is a very popular but somewhat remote Florida State Park. It is about 3 miles off of Hwy 27 and another 7 -9 miles from restaurants and shopping. The sites are gravel, the pull thru sites are curved, and so if you have a 40 foot rig it takes some maneuvering to park it between the shoulders. Our Mi-Fi card didn’t get a strong signal but our cell phones did work. The park attracts hikers, kayaking, bird watchers, plus people wanting to fish and just relax. If those activities don’t suit your fancy, well you best look for another park. Their showers are solar powered so if you’re there on a rainy spell you might be taking cold showers. The location of the dumpsters was such that whatever loop you were assigned, you’d have a bit of a walk to utilize them. Bring your own dog pick up bags as they have no “dog stations”. They do have fire rings, the loop host sells wood, and each site has a picnic table. Reservations are a must and our fee was based on a Florida resident price. We’d were there for a get-together with friends over a weekend and would consider it again if passing through the area. We camped at Lake Louisa State Park in a Motorhome.

Loved this campground! Sites are wide, easy access and has a great roads for bike riding. Campsites were spacious and well maintained. Showers and restrooms were clean. Even had washer/dryers in each campground loop. Some shade, no issues with tight campsites or narrowness. Beautiful lakes nearby with fishing piers near the campground. Not a surprise FL State Parks were voted best in the nation 2 times! We camped in a 40' class A motor home. We will be back. We camped at Lake Louisa State Park in a Motorhome.

We stayed at Lake Louisa for 2 weeks, All in all it was an OK stay. The park and facilities are well maintained. FIshing there was alright but slow, and the hiking trails were very nice. We will stay here again if in the area, there just was not much to do while there We camped at Lake Louisa State Park in a Motorhome.

This is a nice state park located about 6 miles from Clermont and 20 miles from Disneyworld. We had reserved a full hookup site several months in advance and it all worked well. We had no problems using the sewer hookup, unlike a previous reviewer. The interior roads were wide and easy to negotiate. The only negative issue we had was our site had a deep curve which made it a challenge to get a 35' fifth wheel situated. We saw several other sites with this curve and wondered about the thinking of the designer! Each bathhouse has one washer and dryer which worked well and were reasonably priced at $1.00 a load. There are miles of roads to bicycle on within the park since it's three miles from the entry gate to the campground plus other side roads in the park. There are also a lot of walking/hiking trails around the campground loops and the three lakes. The walking trails are wide and nicely maintained. There are a lot of "wild" orange, tangerine and lemon trees in the area so a walk can be "sweet". Bird watching here is nice. We saw several osprey, eagles, and a variety of song birds. We would definitely return here for another stay. We camped at Lake Louisa State Park in a Fifth Wheel.
