Beautiful campground set on the banks of the Toledo Bend reservoir, a very large clearwater lake. An easy 10 if they had sewer. Fishing is great. Park was very nice, ranger was friendly and informative. Camp hosts nice, kept campgrounds clean and neat and could answer questions about stores, restaurants, local attractions etc. Other park staff were friendly. Park was quiet, even on busy weekend, quiet hours are observed. Sites are fairly level, a lot of them have wood decks; there are gravel paths to floating docks for fishing or tying a boat up. There are two trails, both easy to walk and offer great views of the lake and surrounding area. Lots of birds here. Will camp here again in the future. We camped at South Toledo Bend State Park in a Motorhome.

We will stay here again was in site 35 - awesome view of lake. Some site had decks. If you look at map - our site around where we stayed was the best lake sites. Before September 30, prices are $28 after October $20 for premium $18 for not. We like South Toledo Bend more than North. Lot more to do and you are closer to lake. We camped at South Toledo Bend State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

South Toledo Bend State Park has plenty of shade for those hot summer days. The fishing is off the hook. There is a boat launch, fishing peers, a swimming beach, paved walking trails, a playground for the kids and beautiful views of the lake. It is a good drive from the interstate. We camped at South Toledo Bend State Park in a Motorhome.

The lady at the gatehouse was super friendly and helpful. The park is very well laid out and easy to get in and out of. The bath house and laundry rooms were very clean. The fishing piers were nice to use. There is a small beach area as well. There is a nice playground for the kids. Park rangers made several trips per day through the park so the residents were not rowdy. Quiet time started at 10PM and everyone observed it. Overall I had a very nice stay at this campground.

This is our second trip back to this park in less than two months. This trip we were in site #29, which had a nice lighted pier attached to it that overlooked a cove and the swim beach. This park is absolutely gorgeous, the only possible improvement would be to install sewer in each site. Our site required about 3 inches of leveling on one side but was large enough and clear of trees to accommodate our 43' RV with four slides and the awning. The park has very nice walking trails, plenty of beautiful bald eagles to watch, and very nice facilities for park guests. We will camp here again.

We spent 3 nights here. The campground is very nice and clean with well spaced sites. We had a water site, but the best places to get to the water are the easily accessible floating docks. There is a nice paved walking trail and a beautiful information area with nice displays and a beautiful view of the lake. Some sites are quite sloped, some have a nice wooden deck, and all are very private. The quiet hours are enforced, and the camp host did do a drive by at 10 pm. We would definitely stay here again...just loved it! We camped at South Toledo Bend State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We were in site 33 which has view of the water. All sites appear to be very large, but some are on angles and will require you to level your unit. There are 55 spaces and we were only one of two campers in park! This place is clean and QUIET. The hosts were especially friendly and helpful. We had no problem with the Wi-Fi. Can't say enough about the cleanliness of the restrooms; it was a 12 out of possible 10! We are already making plans to go back next year. We camped at South Toledo Bend State Park in a Motorhome.

The staff was very friendly and the park was adequately maintained. I thought the wireless internet worked unusually well though they block a lot of sites, some for reasons that weren't obvious to me. My site, 44, and several others around it were very out of level from front to back. The park has several nice trails, though some were poorly marked. One was totally paved and should work well for somebody in a wheel chair. It was cool so bugs and such weren't a problem but I suspect that various creepy, crawlies would be an issue during warmer times of the year. I have a gauge before the pressure reducer on my water system that goes to 100 psi. It was on the peg. A ranger told me they intentionally try to keep the pressure at 90 psi but, if my gauge was correct, it was well over that. There's not much nearby but a couple of gas station/convenience stores. The nearest supermarket was 23 miles away at the intersection of routes 171 and 8. It was brand new and very nice. I had trouble finding propane. "Norm's RV Park" about 18 miles away on route 171 south of Anacoco was the nearest. Its a dump you'd never want to stay at but they do fill tanks. I wouldn't say my stay here was unpleasant but I doubt if I'll be back. We camped at South Toledo Bend State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Great campground. This campground is very clean and the staff was very friendly. Most of the campsites offer a very large, brand new wooden deck. There are short trails throughout the park that lead you down to the lake where you will find brand new piers for boat docking and fishing. There are also canoe rentals available, which came in handy because we were unable to tow our boat. The washer and dryers were FREE!!! Very clean bathhouses. Only thing missing is a swimming pool for the kids. We definitely plan to revisit. We camped at South Toledo Bend State Park in a Motorhome.

A beautiful State Park set on the shores of Toledo Bend Lake. The campsites are wooded with many offering views of the lake. The park also provides free wifi and free washers and dryers. The visitor center is very nice and the paved trail system is good. Some negatives is that the trash containers are not in the camp area, but near the entrance requiring a long walk to dump trash. Also, many of the campsites are not level. We camped at South Toledo Bend State Park in a Motorhome.

We really enjoy camping here and they have added boat docks close to the camping sites. They also have free laundry now and are improving the camp ground which is wonderful. They removed all the trash cans from around the campsites so now you have to drive to dump your trash (not sure why). We camped at South Toledo Bend State Park in a Travel Trailer.

This State Park is really great! The park was clean, the camp sites were very nice and paved, some even had decks attached to the site because of the slope of the site. They had Wi-Fi but cell coverage was a little spotty in areas. The hiking / biking paths were awesome--they were paved!! There were several docks and bridges in the park that you could fish off of and my kids really liked that. There was a "beach" with parking. The only thing this place was missing was a swimming pool. Although, you could drive down the road and pay to swim at Bass Haven's pool (although, Bass Haven has not been taken care of and is falling into disrepair). The visitor center is amazing and we got some beautiful sunset pictures of the lake from there. We would definitely go here again! Its a super great place!

We love the park, the Wi-Fi was a treat. The lake was low but fishing is available. My grandson enjoyed the trails, we walked and rode bikes all day. The visitor center inside the park is amazing with all the native plants and animals and interactive activities. We didn't participate but the park rangers had activities planned for the weekend. We camped at South Toledo Bend State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Plenty of room with outstanding view of lake at the site we had. Also had a cool breeze blowing in from the lake. This is one of my top two favorite camp grounds in Louisiana. If it only had cell phone service. We camped at South Toledo Bend State Park in a Fifth Wheel.
