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.

Tips for other Campers:

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.

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.

Tips for other Campers:

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.)

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.

Tips for other Campers:

Nearby Vicksburg, MS is a must-see for Civil War enthusiasts.

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.

Fee was for water and electric. Beautiful park. Helpful staff. Level and spacious sites. Mainly back-in. Clean throughout. Invaded by ladybugs. Lovely walking at Poverty Point Historic State Park. We will stay here again. We camped at Poverty Point Reservoir State Park in a Motorhome.

A gated State Park! Very nice spacious, private sites. The pull through sites are not full hook up. Several hiking trails. Part of waterfowl migration route so good bird watching. Easy to reach from I-20. Very clean (and cheap) laundry room. Native American mounds on grounds. Wide shoulder on road for bicycling around lake. We camped at Poverty Point Reservoir State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Very clean, quiet spot to spend a week relaxing. Sites were level cement pads with full hookups, they were although back-ins. The pull-through sites did not have sewer hook up but the back-in worked fine. We camped at Poverty Point Reservoir State Park in a Motorhome.

We were planning on boondocking near here for the night and decided to check in to this park, got a discount rate (half off) with my hubby's MD State Disability Golden Access Pass so we only paid $17.50 for the night! The lady at the front desk was soooooo friendly. Even my teenage sons liked this park, the walking trails and nature all around. All sites are paved and level, and we were able to access over the air TV channels with our regular antennae. Bath house was clean and beautiful. I would stay here again if in the area. Less than an hour drive to West Monroe if going to Duck Commander!!! We camped at Poverty Point Reservoir State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Rate is based on Senior Pass Discount for LA resident. This is a nice enough state park. There are some historic mounds located on the park itself. The laundry room was clean. Power is steady and water pressure was high. Sunday–Thursday…this park is a 10. It is very quiet, through it stays fairly busy. There is a lot of traffic though the camping loop which includes outside visitors for the splash park. Most people including the staff ignore the 15 mph. On Fridays, the park becomes a 1. Any sign of rules is out the door. First time in a state camp ground we've seen 2 wheeled camping units allowed in one site. Golf carts, though against park rules, are brought in and freely used by anyone with a handicapped placard available to them regardless as to whether they are mobility impaired. Pet leashes were ignored. We saw children in one camp urinating on the lawn with an adult standing there in approval. The one positive thing we can say about the weekends was that quiet hours did tend to be observed. We might visit here again. We camped at Poverty Point Reservoir State Park in a Motorhome.

The rate is for a 50 amp electric and water pull-through site, which is considered premium and is $6 more. There is a $6 reservation fee even though we did not have a reservation and were just walk-ups. So, the stated rate of $22 per night is not bad but once you do the add-ons, it is very expensive for a simple overnight on the way to a destination. The lady checking us in was perhaps the most unhelpful and unfriendly campground worker we have come across in a long time. We tried asking her about the sites available and she was either unable or unwilling to provide any information. The campground is nicely laid out with some very long sites. There is little vegetation for privacy. Only a few sites have shade. Once we got to the campground, we changed sites to get one with shade. There is noise from the highway that goes by in front of the park, not the Interstate which is about 3 miles away. It is not bad at night. There are no big security lights which makes the campground nice and dark at night, which we like. There is WiFi but it was very slow and you are restricted from going to many sites, so we were unable to use it. Our Verizon phone and data plan worked well. The very interesting Poverty Point State Archaeology Site is only about 14 miles away and is definitely worth a visit. Because of the cost, we would likely pass on this campground as a simple overnight. We camped at Poverty Point Reservoir State Park in a Motorhome.

This is a nicely laid out campground with nice spacing between sites; concrete pads. The 50 amp electric power and water pressure were right on target. Nice walking trails, not a lot of tree cover yet in the FHU site areas. We would definitely stay here again. We camped at Poverty Point Reservoir State Park in a Motorhome.

This is a beautiful park that is an easy drive from I-20. The staff is great and shopping is not far away. They have WiFi but we did not use it. Our Verizon phone and data worked great. The sites are large and it was easy to get around with our 37' RV. I rated it an eight because there is quite a bit of road noise because the park is very close to a busy state highway. It did quiet down at night, though. We would stay here again. We camped at Poverty Point Reservoir State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a lovely park in a beautiful setting. It has wonderful walking trails, very nice large sites. It is very well designed. It was not very crowded while we were there, but enjoyed the area and the solitude. We did enjoy the surrounding area. If we are in the area again we would definitely stay again.

A nice surprise. The pull through sites are long, wide, and paved. We did hear some traffic on the nearby road and the train in town could also be heard. The park offered several nice hiking trails and a large lake. The Wi-Fi had a strong signal. It had restrictions on streaming downloads (read Netflex, etc) that also restricted other sites we normally use. We camped at Poverty Point Reservoir State Park in a Motorhome.
