Weekends are very crowded with people, boats, boat trailers, & multiple vehicles per site. Weekdays were better. Hiking trails are nice. Plenty of fishing possibilities. 1 restroom was being remodeled during our stay. No TV with antenna. Site kind of rough, used many leveling blocks. We camped at South Toledo Bend State Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Shop for groceries before you arrive, no large stores close by.

We frequently visit state parks in Louisiana and this is one of the most beautiful state parks we have stayed at. Sites are very clean, our site had a huge deck and a boat dock on the water so we could tie our boat up when in the camper. Staff was very friendly, park ranger did regular patrol and everyone was treated like family. Fishing was great, my 9 year old daughter caught fish all 5 days we were there. The sites are not very level, so you may need to bring some extra blocks, but the atmosphere in the park makes up for the unlevel sites. The bath house was under construction for remodeling so only one side was open with a schedule posted for men and women usage. We did not use the bath house so I cannot comment on them. Boat dock was in very good shape and can launch any size boat. They had been having a lot of rain prior to our arrival, so a couple of the roads had some potholes, but not too bad. The parish road leading up to the state park is in pretty bad shape, but it is not part of the state park, just be careful and go slow in that bad section. We have already made reservations to spend another week here. We camped at South Toledo Bend State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Great fishing on Toledo Bend. Rated the #1 bass lake in the country by Bassmaster. Hodges Garden is near by, along with several other historical sites. Closest grocery store is 30 minutes away, so pack what you need unless you like to travel to the grocery store.

We really loved this park, despite the fact that our site had no sewer connection. Water and electric worked fine. WiFi was very spotty though. The park's interior roads are in need of some repair, but overall the park was gorgeous. The park hosts were constantly working to ensure that the park was clean - we never even saw a cigarette butt on the ground. And the location was perfect - we launched our canoe every day right behind our RV. We also saw bald eagles each day during our paddling, and we caught black bass on the lake. This park was a very, very pleasant place to spend time, and we will most definitely return. We camped at South Toledo Bend State Park in a Motorhome.

Very nice park for camping, with good access to the lake if you like fishing. We stayed in spot 27, which gives us walking access to one of the boat dock to keep our boat. Boat docks have power and lighting, which allows easy charging of your boat battery or do some night fishing. If park had more full hook-ups it would be perfect. We camped at South Toledo Bend State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
