There are two different camping sites in this park. The first is the Upperland where we have stayed both times. The sites have full hook-ups (water, electric, sewage) as well as a picnic bench, fire grill and fire pit. From the Upperland you can get on some well marked trails that go around the park. Some of these trails can be used by horses. Coming into the park there was a sign that said you can rent horses. We didn't do this but it may be of interest to some.
Also, the Upperland is in walking distance to the meeting room, group camp, and a nicely kept frisbee golf course.
The main difference in the Lowerland is that the sites are older and only have water and electric (no sewage). However most of the sites are on with a lake or slow moving bayous which are quite picturesque. But bring your bug spray. Stagnant water breeds mosquitoes.
Lowerland is more scenic, Upperland more modern.
There are rolling hills and you really don't feel like you're in Louisiana when you're there. Staff is super nice. Excellent selection of games to borrow at the front desk.
We definitely will go again. - GearDown

We got to stay at a reduced rate with our US golden Age Passp0rt card. They give a discount to people from Arkansas. The park is clean and well kept. Upper campground has full hookups while the lower does not have sewer but much more shade. The walking trails are great. They seem to have something going on every weekend along with their water park in the Summer. They have a Dutch Oven Cook the second Saturday of each month, do not miss. Great food for a donation. Staff are friendly and helpful. We spent the Winter here and it is great. Only 50 miles to new Orleans. - goldwing2
