We opted for the non sewer hookups, and we are glad we did because that section of the campground the sites are more widespread. Very nice comfortable Campground and we are happy we stayed there. It was nice and dark, which we appreciate in the campgrounds we visit. We camped at Poverty Point Reservoir State Park in a Motorhome.

It's about 6 miles from the poverty point world heritage archaeological site. You definitely want to spend a couple hours up there.

We stayed at one of the three long level asphalt pull throughs. The electric and water connections are close to the site entrance, so that there is still 100 feet of site in front of you once connected. These sites are very wide. The price reflects a $6.00 reservation fee, even though we arrived unannounced. They are a little behind tree trimming near sites 45 and 46 along the exit road. The WiFi antenna was very close, but the signal speed was very very slow. We camped at Poverty Point Reservoir State Park in a Motorhome.

Our space was very large. We had plenty of room between us and our neighbors. We were very close to the splash park, which was an added bonus since it was so hot. There were plenty of advertised trails but they all seemed to blend together and were not well maintained. The hosts were very friendly and easily accessible if we had questions. We camped at Poverty Point Reservoir State Park in a Motorhome.

This is a GREAT state park. The Reservoir is beautiful, trails are well maintained, and it has a delightful splash pad for the kids. I don't know the age of this park, but it appears to be fairly new. The sites are gravel, spacious, with grass between sites. Each site has a picnic table, bar-b-q and fire pits. Our site was water/electric only, but some sites do have sewer hook up and there are 5 long pull throughs. The park has a laundry room but I did not use it, nor did we use the restrooms/showers. There is also a golf course nearby and club, but not something we used. Even when full on the weekend, the park was peaceful. We will definitely come here again when in this area. We camped at Poverty Point Reservoir State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

The small town of Delhi, LA is quaint, but do not offer much in the way of restaurants or shopping of any kind. Come prepared.

Poverty Point State Park has a great campground. I made reservations online and called to confirm that a 40' motorhome with slideouts would work in the space. Upon arrival the space was too narrow and not long enough, so I had to upgrade to one of the "improved" spaces. No where online could I find a description of "non-improved" vs "improved".

To upgrade my space, we could not do it over the phone. I had to come back up to the office. At the office there is no where to turn around, so I had to drive out of the park and find a place to turn around in Delhi.

Back at the office, the staff person changed my reservation to a different spot; but when she handed me the receipt, it showed I was still in the original campsite. She fought with the computer system some more and was finally able to get me a pull through spot. However, I ended up having to pay twice, which increased the price per night.

The pull-through spot I ended up in was nice, level, and clean. However, while driving through the park there were several trees that needed to be trimmed to avoid hitting the motorhome.

Overall, I was pleased with the park. I wish they offered single night stays on the weekend. Given the chance I would stay here again. We camped at Poverty Point Reservoir State Park in a Motorhome.

When I was here, the park was only about 30% occupied, and I did not see any parties or hear any loud noises. If there were any oil field workers, they were gone or very quiet. It is a relatively new campground, and the sites were clean and well-kept. My only complaint was a few bites from a nest of fire ants, but they were gone the next day after I sprinkled a little borax around the nest. I enjoyed bike riding around the lake. The price of $23 for a full hookup site was a bargain. Very good Verizon voice and data, as well. We camped at Poverty Point Reservoir State Park in a Motorhome.

This park has really gone down hill in the past years. Its a basically a workers' park now, with long-termers and workers. Certain spaces are said to be set aside for snowbirds and extended stay however its not enforced. Too much heavy traffic including construction vehicles trailers with pipeline and other work equipment. Long term stayers are on the rough side, lots of beer drinking in the evenings, sites not kept clean or neat. Speed limits don't apply to them either. This is not a place I'd want our children to play in. Manager is hostile to inquiries and office staff is obviously weary of comments and complaints about it. We'll take our money elsewhere in the future. We camped at Poverty Point Reservoir State Park in a Motorhome.

We paid $22 for a W/E site. I can't say enough how much we loved staying at this park. Even though it's in a rural area, this countryside is gorgeous and clean. The campground itself is well-kept and clean. The sites are spaced apart well and some even come with an extra-wide paved section for a toad if your unit is long. Each site was paved, flat, provides a grill, fire pit, picnic table, hanging hooks, and a tent pad. We chose a site that is under the shaded tree section and the underbrush provided us extra privacy between neighbors. We got around 6 tv stations through our antennae even from that spot, as well as low-but-stable Verizon 4G LTE data. If we were in any other site, I believe our signal would have been even stronger. The bath house was immaculate and they did a great job putting it together and the shower stayed hot. My only complaint would be the misting spray showerhead - and that's pretty much it. They even have a laundry room at the bath house with a wash basin, 2 washers, and 2 dryers for .75 cents each. I'm already planning to stop through here again when we head to FL next winter. We camped at Poverty Point Reservoir State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

There is a newly renovated Brookshires grocery store in Delhi. The nearest Walmart is in the next town over on the interstate a good 15 miles away. The prices in Brookshires was comparable if you register for their shopping card - only takes a minute and worth the savings.

This state park is very well laid out with paved interior roads and sites that are easy to maneuver. The park is well groomed and has extremely clean and attractive restrooms. Our stay during the week was quiet and peaceful. Utilities worked well. AT&T signal is available in the area. We would be happy to stay here again.

Would have given this a 10 if we had a waterfront site. But there are none. Site 42 is a long, level pull thru, with the curbside adjacent to a wood deck with the woods right behind that. Very private! A surprise was a surprisingly good free wifi. We camped at Poverty Point Reservoir State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Stayed here 2 nights. Beautiful park, especially great if you are a fisherman. Campground is very neat, clean with plenty of room between sites. We only saw two bathroom houses, one at the front of the campground and another one on the back side of it. Sites are sunny - no shade. One item to note - when making reservations, a "prime" or "premium" site is water, electric and pull-through - no sewer hookups. There are several sites with sewer hookups, they are just back-in. We would stay here again. We camped at Poverty Point Reservoir State Park in a Motorhome.

Careful of ants!

If interested in archeological sites, there is a neat place to visit about 14 miles past the state park - it is called "Poverty Point" and is the site of a prehistoric earthworks of the Poverty Point culture. (It is just past the town of Epps LA.)

We really enjoyed our stay here. Good level sites, paved. Full hook ups. There is wifi but it is pretty slow. Our site (20) was very spacious. There is a very nice lake that you can walk or bike to. We will stay here again. We camped at Poverty Point Reservoir State Park in a Motorhome.

This park is top-notch due to the ease of reservation, cost, cleanliness, and lot spacing. The service was great as well, especially the park ranger who manned the office when I arrived a bit late. I'm a clean freak, and I always worry about what the showers will be like. There was no need to worry here, as all facilities, including the laundry, were sparkling clean. I will stay here again. In fact, I liked it so much that I added a night during my stay.

Delhi is a small town, but I enjoyed it and the short drive to Vicksburg, MS to visit the Civil War sites. Camp sites range from tucked away and shaded spots, to exposed larger sites where larger RVs and boat trailers can be parked. We camped at Poverty Point Reservoir State Park in a Truck Camper.
