There are 2 areas at Farr Park. We stayed in the area near the horse stables and arena. Although the staff gave me directions to the area, they were not clear and we went to the wrong area first and had to turn around and go back. It was basically a grass field with 30 amp power and water. The electric was broken (on the ground) at at least one site and there were wasps in the electrical pole of the site that we chose. The park was adequate for the our overnight stop and we are early risers on travel days, which was good since the only way into and out of this park is past the LSU football stadium and it was a game day. Luckily it was a 6 PM game, but they were already closing off streets at 8 a.m. We camped at Farr Park Campground & Horse Activity Center in a Fifth Wheel.

A bit challenging to find and we missed the turn. The address, which we put in the GPS and where the park is are different. Once we found the park it was not clear as to where the office was. A rainstorm was coming so we pulled into a site and set up, all the electric boxes are locked, we found one that wasn't and had everything set up before the storm hit. I am not sure what one does for electricity if you come in after hours. Called the number and found out where the office was. Only accepted cash and no discounts. CG selection around Baton Rouge is not great and this one was very nice. Thought the price was high. We camped at Farr Park Campground & Horse Activity Center in a Motorhome.

We stayed here as an overnight & although they were helpful to allow us to just pick our site, we have to agree with the rest of comments abt this park. We came in during rain and the sites were very very wet--lots of standing water. Even in the morning. We had thought to stay 2 nights but left early. Plus it's hard to drive to & out of from the main road. And all of that is unfortunate becuz it's a lovely place & very quiet--we got an awesome night's sleep. If they would simply do something abt the pads, I'd give it an 8+ We camped at Farr Park Campground & Horse Activity Center in a Fifth Wheel.

I arrived after 4:30 on a Saturday so had to go to the office after 8 AM to pay the next day. It is quite a bit out of the way, but another park in Baton Rouge wanted $50 (didn't really want a 1 night stay) or were full of workers in Port Allen. It was $12 when I was there years ago. There were about 10 sites occupied.

All new hookups. Spacious lots, grass site surface. Dump station nearby. The roads did have some standing water from rain the night before. We camped at Farr Park Campground & Horse Activity Center in a Motorhome.

The website for this park needs a lot of help. There are no directions or recommended routing for RV's. Do NOT try to turn onto Brightside from Nicholson!!! This is a very steep railroad crossing over which our front leveling jacks drug. Also, making that 90 degree turn is impossible in a large RV if there are any cars waiting on Brightside at the signal. I wish I knew a better route in, but I will try to post something if we find a more suitable route. The signage is very poor. It says to register in the office, but the sign also says it is closed on the weekends. Another camper sent me all the way across the facility to the arena activity center. Again, no signs saying anything about RV registration. It turned out there was a girl in that facility that did register us. She seemed confused when I said I could find no signage. Anyway, this is pricey for what you get. I can see what others have said about the grass sites becoming a soggy mess in the rain. They are also set up as double sites which would never fit two large RV's. I can't figure that one out. There were very few people here, so we just basically used two sites. Other than a very nice place to walk your dog, it's just a quiet spot in the country. We camped at Farr Park Campground & Horse Activity Center in a Motorhome.

Shower house and bathrooms were old, but serviceable. Muddy grass sites. Sites tend to flood after rain storms. Very near LSU. Dump station available. Roads into park were not well maintained. Great location if you are there for an event on campus. We camped at Farr Park Campground & Horse Activity Center in a Motorhome.

We have stayed at this park several times. It is a nice clean park with electric and water hookups, no sewer but they do have a dump station on the way out. We have always paid a rate of $20.00 a night to stay here. The rate is now $39.90 a night. The only difference is they have added 50 amps to all sites. I had to check a couple of sites as some had low voltage. I don't see a need for a near $20.00 rate increase for upgrading from 30 to 50 amps. We camped at Farr Park Campground & Horse Activity Center in a Fifth Wheel.

This is an open, grass field with roads, water and electricity put in to make campsites. It is VERY near LSU and convenient to downtown Baton Rouge. It is safe and quiet. The campground is separated by just a fence from fields where horses graze. We had a lovely morning view over coffee. In spite of a sign telling us to register at the arena, we registered at a small office on site. The only employee accompanied us out to the camp site and unlocked the electric box for us. She was very helpful. We were able to Uber from there to downtown, though the driver on our return trip couldn't find the campground on his navigation software. So, we directed him back. The route was pretty simple, we had been in town about 6 hours at that point and we were able to find our way. We camped at Farr Park Campground & Horse Activity Center in a Motorhome.

The beef I have with this park is that their signage is unreliable. There is a sign at the park entrance that says that outside office hours (mon-fri) pick a site and pay the next day. So we tried that ! We discovered that the electrical outlets were padlocked. A fellow camper told us that the rate for that particular area (50amp) was $39.00 . There was a 30amp section but that was behind the arena. That was worth $20.00 All these sites are in a large field in a very quiet area. The fellow also mentioned that we could dry camp for $10.00. If we wanted the electrical box unlocked we were to go see the employee in the arena office. So we did. We walked over as it wasn't that far. The girl at the office confirmed the information we had received. There was no price list posted anywhere. When we told her that we would like to dry camp she even suggested we use any of the site and we could hook up to water. We expected to use our generator so we parked in their overflow to avoid annoying other campers. From the campsite it is an easy 30min bike ride along the levee right downtown. We were there on Monday. Baton Rouge is very quiet on a Monday. We stayed 2 very enjoyable days. We camped at Farr Park Campground & Horse Activity Center in a Travel Trailer.

A nice country park in the city which is ideally located. The park was very quiet and felt very safe. Management was very nice and friendly and made you feel comfortable. This park is very close to LSU and a number of places to eat. When we are in the area we will stay again. We camped at Farr Park Campground & Horse Activity Center in a Motorhome.

A grass field, but surprisingly level site. Pick your own site as few spaces taken. Arrived on Saturday; office closed until Monday. No sewer, but dump station. We enjoyed seeing the horses play in the pasture. We camped at Farr Park Campground & Horse Activity Center in a Travel Trailer.

Large spaces on grass, near LSU and downtown.

Helpful staff. Solid 50 amp and water. no sewer but there is a dump site. Close to the river for walking.

Such a deal.

The road to the park crosses the RR tracks at a severe angle. check your maps because there are lower track crossings closer to I-12. My coach is just 32' and towing and we expected too, but did not scrape.

Park is great for dog running and there were usually people riding at the horse arena. If the ground is too wet you can park further to the campground rear on gravel. We camped at Farr Park Campground & Horse Activity Center in a Motorhome.

This park is set within a horse park arena area. Water and electric only. Gravel roads with grass parking. Older hookups but worked OK. Has bath and shower house that was clean. Friendly staff. Park is in a safe area about 2 miles from LSU. Levee walking path close by. Was there during intense rain, and really wasn't that bad, everything gets squishy here anyways. Has dump station, park suited us well for a few days visit in Baton Rouge area, price reasonable for what you get. Friendly staff.

No frills but definitely peaceful. Grass sites that the grass was a little long due to lots of rain. Otherwise, great location to LSU and perfect for a one night stay. We were one of 7 RVs in the park. We camped at Farr Park Campground & Horse Activity Center in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Depending on the size of your rig, for me, I found a much easier route to the campground via Bluebonnet to Burbank then to Nicholson. Turn Left on Skip Bertman and then left on River Road. Park is approximately 2 miles on your left. If you come on weekends, you must go to the indoor arena on site to check in and pay.
