6 Parks near Franklinton, Louisiana
Feb 2017 - $20.00
Beautiful, peaceful park. Perfect if you are looking to get away from it all. If you are looking for a park to keep you busy with activities, this is not the place for you. This park offers beautiful nature, a creek, several ponds/lakes, hiking trails, equestrian trails and a river but no swimming pool, game room, or "fuss". The bottom land sites are quiet and spacious, easy lake and river access and most sites offer seclusion from even the "neighbors". However, the bottomland sites have no sewer hookup. The upland sites aren't in very close proximity to the water and they are a little closer to your neighbors but they do have sewer hookups. Overall, nice park. - kbg12379

My family enjoys this park. This was our first time visiting after the devastating floods of 2016. We were somewhat surprised that the park was still so affected. The Bottomland camping area still showed clear signs of the flooding. There was a pervasive mud color from where the water line was. So from the ground to about 2-3 up, all the foliage was brown. Above that, it was green. Also, there were some potholes in the road that weren't there prior to the flooding. Originally we had been in site 33 in the Bottomlands which we had pre-selected last year based on its natural beauty and proximity to the water. But after we got there and saw what we did, we moved to the Upperland area which was just fine. - GearDown

We stayed in the upland section and consider this to be the nicest state park we've stayed in. The roads are paved and limestone pads where rv's park with full hookups. Wifi doesn't work even though your phone or ipad shows there is a signal. Staff is very friendly and helpful and keep the campground very clean. - malojeer

We had a blast. This was our first trip with the 4-wheeler. The trails were great. The bands were very good and played Friday and Saturday nights. After the bands were finished, everyone honored quiet time. We did not hear another 4-wheeler until 8 am. It was a very family oriented environment. A lot for kids to participate in for the "redneck o-limp-hicks." The staff was very friendly and helpful. We would definitely recommend and return. - Rhonda C.

Went here for the weekend to ride my ATV. It is a great place to camp and ride your ATV. The trails are a nice feature and you really get to ride your ATV while camping in a quiet place. There were not many people here when we camped. There are a few permanent residents in the park; however, there is tons of room. The owners are very nice and its a great place for star gazing or just relaxing. I would not go here if not for the trails for ATV riding. Its far off the beaten path, but nice. - pizota1313

This is a fun campground with very friendly owners. The 4-wheeler trails are great and the mud pit is great fun. We have always had a good time at this campground. - crweigel

It is off the beaten path, and very quiet. They lost our reservation, but luckily there was not a crowd expected. Some of the long-term residents were odd individuals that made you feel creepy, but if we stayed on our side of the campgrounds they stayed on their side. It is not an RV park, meaning the sites are not clearly established, we were allowed to par nearly anywhere we wanted and at any angles that would allow our traveling party to create a space for us to gather. The few interactions with the staff were friendly. The town of Folsum and Covington nearby were friendly small towns to occupy your time in. We really enjoyed our trip to the area. - Cap

Overall the campground was nice. Quite a ways off of the beaten path though. You have to go down 2 miles of gravel road to get there. There are some long term tenants which gives the park a less than pristine appearance but they are in an area to themselves. The sites are grass with no paving or stone, but the soil is very sandy so there is no problem with standing water. My brother and his wife and child were going with us to the Global Wildlife Center and were charged $18.00 to enter the campground. Their website states a $6.00 charge per person per day, but I didn't expect to be charged for coming to pick me up. Had a live band on Fri night, I caught the last of it but I thought it was pretty good - arfrancois

It is a campground but the staff was really nice, the pool was clean, it was a genuinely fun time. The bath houses were not up to standard but it is a campground and is appreciated that it did have showers. More specifically, the showers were functional and clean when we got there but after a packed weekend they did not look safe to use. Probably more of the guests fault than staff. The river was cool. The facilities were fun. The band was good. Spent Easter weekend and had a good time. If you are bringing a $500K motorhome expecting a five star resort, you will be unhappy. If you are planning on going camping in a family enviroment with a nice staff and nice people, then you may want to give this place a try. Really good people in this area. Don't quote me on the price, I don't remember exactly how much. - fatback

We absolutely LOVE Land O Pines and you will too! It's great for families especially with children. They have many activities happening for children and adults. We loved it so much that we got a permanent campsite. For the price and the great people you will meet, this is the place to go. And NOW is the time to scoop up on some great deals on permanent sites if interested. It's really an absolutely wonderful place to camp and entertain children and adults of all ages. - Keri Dupont

We did not stay at this campground. We made our reservation while on the road. It is several miles off I-10 on a very narrow winding road. The entrance to the campground and the roads within the campground are very narrow. There were many old, dilapidated RVs in the park. There were also many dogs running loose. We were told our site was full hook-up on a pad. The pad turned out to be grass and was not large enough for our 44' motor home. We were offered another site but were not able to get into them either. We were given a full refund. The family that owns the campground were very nice and tried to be accommodating but the state of the campground and facilities were very poor. I would not recommend this campground. - J Corsetti

This is a very nice, older park that is way out in the woods so was very quite. The staff at the park were very friendly and helpful about the area. We were there for 5 nights and would recommend it to our friends and family. You have to be careful when picking a site. We lucked out with D54 because we had very heavy rains while there and our site didn't flood where most all the others were flooded. - Patsypoo02

This is a horse ranch w/amenities. Pull thru level, hard packed site. FHU w/50A. Very peaceful, country setting. GPS took us right to it.
We stayed 2 nights and they honored both nights with PA discount.
We would stay again and ride the horses again. We were in a motor home. - D Curf

Other than being a bit overpriced and not having the correct size sewer hookups on some sites, this place is very nice. Very gracious hostess that will lead you to your site. They have karaoke and horse back riding. We were in motorhome and had no problem getting in an out. Very peaceful and quiet at night. We really enjoyed our stay and will be back for sure. - BryanK.

Upon arrival you will check in at the sparsely supplied camp store. The staff is very friendly and helpful in getting your RV to its spot. Most of the sites are grass or dirt, and unlevel. There are plenty of activities throughout the day, including horseback riding, swimming, fishing, and arts and crafts. The bath houses and pools are clean.
Dust is an issue here as there are no paved roads. The staff did water the road down one afternoon, which helped some.
It is somewhat expensive considering what other campgrounds offer for less money. However, my 4 year old granddaughter had a great time. - DSLACamper

This was a nice place but I dropped the rank because the showers on the end we stayed at had broken panels out of the door. The river was very nice. Just bring bug spray. The skeeters were huge. - Jesse Rodgers

Bogue Chitto Park is great place to go on hot summer days. The water park is fairly large and the river is quit refreshing. They offer tubing and canoeing on the river and bring your horse if you have one, there are several miles of trails. A very spacious park. The upper ground campsite are paved with very clean bathrooms. - jeff moore

We hesitated to stop here when the latest review was several years old, but we thought we'd take a chance when we needed an overnight stop. The rate we paid was with the senior pass so I hesitate to complain. $14 for water and electric is not bad. It is clear this campground has gone downhill since the 2007 reviews though. The sites are dirt and all run together. There are not many that can accommodate our 40' size. There were overflowing garbage cans at each site. I will say that the young man working was very pleasant and helpful and seemed distressed that he couldn't get all the garbage picked up while attending to his other duties as well. He was all alone. If we were smaller, I think we'd probably use this park again in transit. Due to our size, I doubt we will. - Gypsy Turtles
