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 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.

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.

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.

A nice State Park, clean, friendly people and very helpful. The park is 10 plus years old, but it seemed newer. Lot of hiking trails, nice lake. In sites 38-42 are BIG pull thru, sites 43-54 are shade sites I was in a 38footer if I knew these where there I would have park there. Nice camp ground I would stop here again.

Very nice and quiet park, not far at all off I-20. Ask for a shady site, as not all have shade. Plenty of room to run our dogs. Nice water fountain play area for children. Well kept bathrooms. No problem backing into our site. We camped at Poverty Point Reservoir State Park in a Travel Trailer.

We absolutely love this campground. We have family in neighboring areas and this is a great place to meet. We have a family reunion twice a year here and all of the kids that come love the water playground. Sites are nice and easy to get into. This is a newer park so most sites do not have mature trees as of yet but they have been planted. The sites in the back of the campground do have lots of shade, but those sites do not have sewage connections. The staff is very friendly and is always working to make your stay the best it can be. The showers and restrooms, along with the washer and dryers on site, are always nicely kept. Oh Yeah: the fishing in the lake is also very good.

We camped in full hook up with sewer, there are other sites available for less cost. Level sites, easy to enter, nice water pressure, lots of space between sites with greenery and landscaping. New campground and shower/bathroom/laundry facility - very nicely kept. Splash playground for kids. Hiking/Biking trail, cabins on the lake and in woods. Fishing lake - very pretty. Will come back in warmer time of year to enjoy cabin on lake with friends! Fish off the balcony. We camped at Poverty Point Reservoir State Park in a Motorhome.

We discovered this park 2 years ago on our trip West. We opted to stop again this year. This is a fairly new State Park. The facilities are in great shape, it is kept clean and in good repair. There are paved pull-throughs on Loop 2 that will accommodate the biggest rigs. The only negative is that the hookups are located at the beginning of the pull-through rather than in the middle requiring electric extensions or detachment of toad. The large lake has the gamut of water related sports, there are cabins for rent for RVers looking for a place to hold a family get-together. Staff at check-in were helpful and friendly. We camped at Poverty Point Reservoir State Park in a Motorhome.
