We came in on Coast to Coast and thus were given 30 amp and no sewer even though I made a reservation for 50 amp FHU two months previous. Coast to Coast check-in is 4 pm (according to the C2C website) versus members is noon. The site assigned to us was way too short and impossible to maneuver into with my 40ft fifth wheel, so I went into the one next to it and told them I did so. I'm just glad that site was open. Just keep in mind, C2C members, there are different rules for us and I would suggest calling ahead to verify if you are going to get a site you want. What you reserve via C2C is meaningless.
The vitals: water good, electric was solid. Did not use the pay WiFi. Verizon signal good. We got satellite through the trees but I consider it lucky. Roads are all dirt thus either dusty or muddy. Sites are level but mushy after rain. Some sites are difficult to maneuver into due to trees. Bathroom/showers
are old but clean. Laundry has 3 of each at $1.75 each. One advantage to the no sewer area of the park is it is quiet and no traffic driving through. Dump station was not standard as it was just a pipe sticking out of the ground with no concrete around so it was a muddy mess of whatever others had done there. - cwier

Price reflects Coast-to-Coast membership. Ocean Canyon members were using all of the full hookup sites, so Coast-to-Coast RVs were in an area with only electric and water, however, there is a dump station that is easily accessible. This was not a concern for us, because our tanks are large enough to manage for a week. Also, the views in these sites are very relaxing near the larger pond. Very nice campground. Shaded sites throughout. Sites are level and interior roads are nice gravel roads. Sites are gravel and grass. There are a couple very pretty ponds. There are nice trails around ponds for walking and to sit and enjoy the ponds and nearby wooded areas. There are daily activities. They had several full meals that were available at a café area. Staff were very friendly. It is a very secluded and quiet campground. Follow GPS exactly and it is easy to find and easy to get to. - GLPColorado

This was a very pretty park - in the front of the resort. Unfortunately, we were put in the very back with a view of the dumpster and the bathhouse. It appeared that we were in the area where permanent residents are parked. There was no landscaping back there and very little shade. Our picnic table was in a bad state of repair - you couldn't really use it. The people running the park were friendly - but mostly seemed to cater to 'regulars' from the local area. We would go back to the park as we really loved the area. We are OCP members and stayed for free. - User3101

Water & 50amp site, plenty of room between sites. Very nice park. We've been here once before hence the reason for our return. WIFI had been added since our last visit but it was down for the first 2 days we were here but worked fairly well when it was up. Several over the air TV stations were available. Some of the interior roads are a bit narrow. Watch for low hanging limbs. - Bob & Stephanie

My complaint about this stay was the inexperienced customer service. I handed the clerk my drivers license at check-in for him to get my information, but he handed it back to me so I had to recite. I assumed answering I wanted a full hookup when asked meant I would get it. The desk said when I asked why I had only electricity and water that full hookup sites were limited. Although there was a free dump station, this jaded my experience. The campground was packed when I arrived, families grilling almost like a tailgate experience, but by 10-11, the grounds were quiet. I saw communal bathrooms, but did not use them. I would stay again after clarifying the charges. - Mhlangford

First let me say the park is scenic and beautiful with MANY giant moss covered oaks, a perfect picture of the South. However it is NOT big rig friendly. There are numerous tree limbs hanging in the roads throughout the park making the drive in to your site hazardous to your roof, satellite, AC units and even awnings. We were told they don't cut the trees to keep a natural look. Enter at your own risk if you have a motorhome (ours is 40' long). The roads are paved and sites are paved mostly level but don't count on the size being accurate or usable if you have to move over to keep limbs off the roof or slides. The bathroom on the men's side was very dirty, both need work and are dated. There is a beach within walking distance but don't plan on using it. We were there for Father's Day weekend with the grandsons ready to play in the water and found a big warning at the beach- Advisory of High Bacteria and Do Not Swim!
Big rigs enter at your own risk. Plan to drive down middle of road and still have branches scrap your rig. Many pull-throughs are
short and very tight.
This could be a great park but unless they trim a lot of trees it is not safe for big rigs. - gleLOAL

We absolutely LOVE Land O Pines and you will too! It's great for families especially with children. They have many activities happening for children and adults. We loved it so much that we got a permanent campsite. For the price and the great people you will meet, this is the place to go. And NOW is the time to scoop up on some great deals on permanent sites if interested. It's really an absolutely wonderful place to camp and entertain children and adults of all ages. - Keri Dupont

We did not stay at this campground. We made our reservation while on the road. It is several miles off I-10 on a very narrow winding road. The entrance to the campground and the roads within the campground are very narrow. There were many old, dilapidated RVs in the park. There were also many dogs running loose. We were told our site was full hook-up on a pad. The pad turned out to be grass and was not large enough for our 44' motor home. We were offered another site but were not able to get into them either. We were given a full refund. The family that owns the campground were very nice and tried to be accommodating but the state of the campground and facilities were very poor. I would not recommend this campground. - J Corsetti

This is a very nice, older park that is way out in the woods so was very quite. The staff at the park were very friendly and helpful about the area. We were there for 5 nights and would recommend it to our friends and family. You have to be careful when picking a site. We lucked out with D54 because we had very heavy rains while there and our site didn't flood where most all the others were flooded. - Patsypoo02

An absolute gem! Gorgeous little State Park with roomy sites and access to the Tchefuncte River, a stereo-typically beautiful Louisiana bayou experience. Looking forward to returning! Walk down by the water at sunset for a great photo op. Everything was clean and comfortable here. Be prepared for the humidity! Gates open 8am -8pm. - SLOman

Excellent location for our purposes. Small state park on the Tchefuncte River. Spacious sites, well maintained, trees for shade. Nice walk down to the most beautiful river. Not the most level of pads, but not a huge disappointment. - TXTread

Stayed again on our way through LA, showers were awesome! Had some electric issues at the site again, microwave didn't have enough power to run properly but no surges.
The washers and dryers work great and it was awesome to be able to do laundry without leaving the park!
Had fun on the boardwalk and got some great pictures, will be back on our way back through. - Crazyjewelrymakers

Friendly staff and park was very clean. Gravel & paved roads, sites gravel or concrete pads. Mix of all. Stay at site DT-2, 44' MH leveled without problem on gravel site. Site large enough for MH & Toad = 62'. Electric, water & sewer worked okay. Park had received large amount of rain for past week so all the grass was soggy as would be expected but no standing water. Easy access for big rig off I-59 and into park. Wifi worked very well. Would stay here again. - osok

This park is easily accessed from I 59, is clean, and the staff is friendly and helpful. We always get a pull through site facing the entrance road. These sites are level and long enough for our 40ft. 5th wheel and truck. Grocery store and restaurants are nearby. We stay at this park whenever in the area. - arleen

At the top of my list. Easy access, less than one mile from Walmart and restaurants. Staff was very friendly and helpful. They have concrete pads and gravel. I was parked on concrete slab with picnic table. The only downside is if you wish to use satellite be careful where you park--lots and lots of pine trees. We could not use ours. I have been there three times and will return. - chiangraijim

It is off the beaten path, and very quiet. They lost our reservation, but luckily there was not a crowd expected. Some of the long-term residents were odd individuals that made you feel creepy, but if we stayed on our side of the campgrounds they stayed on their side. It is not an RV park, meaning the sites are not clearly established, we were allowed to par nearly anywhere we wanted and at any angles that would allow our traveling party to create a space for us to gather. The few interactions with the staff were friendly. The town of Folsum and Covington nearby were friendly small towns to occupy your time in. We really enjoyed our trip to the area. - Cap

Overall the campground was nice. Quite a ways off of the beaten path though. You have to go down 2 miles of gravel road to get there. There are some long term tenants which gives the park a less than pristine appearance but they are in an area to themselves. The sites are grass with no paving or stone, but the soil is very sandy so there is no problem with standing water. My brother and his wife and child were going with us to the Global Wildlife Center and were charged $18.00 to enter the campground. Their website states a $6.00 charge per person per day, but I didn't expect to be charged for coming to pick me up. Had a live band on Fri night, I caught the last of it but I thought it was pretty good - arfrancois

It is a campground but the staff was really nice, the pool was clean, it was a genuinely fun time. The bath houses were not up to standard but it is a campground and is appreciated that it did have showers. More specifically, the showers were functional and clean when we got there but after a packed weekend they did not look safe to use. Probably more of the guests fault than staff. The river was cool. The facilities were fun. The band was good. Spent Easter weekend and had a good time. If you are bringing a $500K motorhome expecting a five star resort, you will be unhappy. If you are planning on going camping in a family enviroment with a nice staff and nice people, then you may want to give this place a try. Really good people in this area. Don't quote me on the price, I don't remember exactly how much. - fatback

We were parked in a low lot - after a rain we were surrounded by 6 inches of water - I asked to move to the lots with cement slabs several times - told they were short term and I was there for a month - I offered to pay the premium price and still denied - left over a week early and will never return. Many sights are flooded with a little rain - If you go stay short time. - David Sansocie

Nice campground. The sites and roads are a little tight and the bathhouse needs to be updated but the location is great. I would have given this campground a much higher rating if the woman in the office hadn't been so rude. - dakotabean

Park is set in beautiful grove of pines. Owners are upgrading many areas of this older park. Some sites are narrow. Overall, clean and well kept, far enough off the main highway to be quiet. Close enough for easy access. Everyone was courteous and helpful. - T and A

This RV park is a dump. Saw 2 guys passed out drunk. One was on the side of his junk motorhome. This motorhome is at the entrance to the RV park and is jacked up on blocks with part of the hood missing. I'm told he is working on it. This park is not well kept, the sites are narrow and so are the roads. The laundry is in a metal shipping container that is heated, in cold weather, by a space heater in the winter. No AC during the summer but there is a window that opens. It also has some serious drainage problems. You have to drive on the grass when making a turn. This RV park won't be around very long. - Susie Salida

Old park which needs work. Sites are very tight. Apppeared to be lots of transient workers. Did not use any of the facilities. Would not stay here again. - Jan1Rick

We have been here since March 2014 with work and when we first came it was fine, but since the owner came in July this place is horrible!! The grass has not been cut in over 4 weeks: knee high, snakes, mosquitos,ticks, scared to walk my dog!! When asked about cutting grass the owner said "stop trying to tell me how to run my business"!! This owner is a joke!! Laundry room is in a box car with 1 door that has a gas water heater by the door & filthy! Fire hazard to say the least! Breaker box has had cover taken off & left open for anyone to touch b/c the man doing electrical work is not licensed! There is someone staying in a tent under one of the covers that has boarded up the sides!! We pay over $500 a month and get talked to with a attitude b/c we asked to get grass cut!! DO NOT STAY HERE!! - Lady J

It has been quite a few years since posting a review, but this new park got me going again.
This is a well thought out park that is only 10 months old according to the General Manager.
Located just off of I-12, and east of I-55, it is convenient to both Baton Rouge and New Orleans. I'd estimate about 45-60 minutes to either, depending upon traffic.
Exit #47 from I-12, and proceed northbound about 1/2 mile and turn right into the park entry. The entry is gated and you must be admitted to pull into the numerous arrival lanes.
The desk staff are very friendly and helpful. When asking about a dinner recommendation, the staff member was kind enough to actually print the flyer for the restaurant.
Access to our Premium Pull-Thru site was easy with a 40' Class A towing an F-150. The sites and interior roads are all well paved with concrete. My only minor gripe about the facility is the protective bollards at the entry to each camping row. Any error in judgement will be rewarded with body damage. Fortunately, this isn't likely as the actual width of each road is generous and the turn radius is gradual. In short, a small gripe.
The site itself is a fully paved and generously wide concrete apron. I parked our Class A diesel pusher on the edge of the LH side of the pad and had in excess of 3 feet of room on the RH side. In addition to this, the picnic table area is concrete, and would easily accommodate 3 full sized picnic tables.
The site is very level, requiring very little effort to achieve a perfect result. Overall site length would easily fit a 45' MH with a full sized vehicle parked at a comfortable distance from the coach.
Power, water, and sewer connections are all well sited, and function well. Water pressure appears to be approximately 45 PSI.
Once you get beyond the impeccably executed camp ground, you will have a nice man made lake for water sports, and 2 separate pools.
Overall a great park.
We will return. - Matt D

This was our first time here. The park is very clean. We stayed in the Upland section. Very spacious sites, gravel pads but they were level. Great walking trails, a little tough to ride bicycles due to the hilly terrain. We would definitely stay here again. - KDplus2

This is a nice clean park. The state park is 1700 acres and has 2 campgrounds, a water park, canoes, rafts, horses and 6 miles of walking trails. All areas are kept clean. The price is a Winter rate with a discount. If a person is from Arkansas or Delaware and have the America the beautiful card there is a 50% discount. All personnel of the park are very friendly. Great value. - goldwing2

There are two different camping sites in this park. The first is the Upperland where we have stayed both times. The sites have full hook-ups (water, electric, sewage) as well as a picnic bench, fire grill and fire pit. From the Upperland you can get on some well marked trails that go around the park. Some of these trails can be used by horses. Coming into the park there was a sign that said you can rent horses. We didn't do this but it may be of interest to some.
Also, the Upperland is in walking distance to the meeting room, group camp, and a nicely kept frisbee golf course.
The main difference in the Lowerland is that the sites are older and only have water and electric (no sewage). However most of the sites are on with a lake or slow moving bayous which are quite picturesque. But bring your bug spray. Stagnant water breeds mosquitoes.
Lowerland is more scenic, Upperland more modern.
There are rolling hills and you really don't feel like you're in Louisiana when you're there. Staff is super nice. Excellent selection of games to borrow at the front desk.
We definitely will go again. - GearDown
