Been there - done that - don't need to go back. Grossly overpriced for what it is. The web site says it is 1.6 miles from I-10. Wrong. The road leading to it is 1.6 miles, but the park is actually right beside the right of way fence to the Interstate. The entrance road is very narrow with steep ditch on each side. Just hope no one is coming. Impossible for a big RV and any other vehicle to pass. We camped at Punkin Park Campground in a Motorhome.

a one night stay, wouldn't stay here longer. it's way over priced. And the back of the park could be really nice without all the junk trailers back there. We camped at Punkin Park Campground in a Motorhome.

We stayed at this part on Christmas night on way to Florida. We had a long drive that day and were looking for a basic park for overnight stay and good night sleep. Website stated $29 but when last minute reservations were made was told website was out of date and rate was $40 including discount. Management was nice and helpful and was obviously trying to update the park. However, even with a couple of recent slabs, rest of park is dirt. Sewer connections were poorly maintained and cable connections did not work. In addition, I-10 is right outside your door. There had not been anything about proximity to I-10 or we would not have stayed here. We stayed here in travel trailer but would not stay here again. We camped at Punkin Park Campground in a Travel Trailer.

I paid the weekly rate for parts of June & July. This is an old park with new owners. They are working hard everyday to update the park. The pull thru sites are concrete and have room for the picnic table. The staff is excellent, helpful and friendly, both during the week and weekends. We camped at Punkin Park Campground in a Motorhome.

Not hard to find, just follow your navigator. Gravel roads with concrete pads next to the office, grass the rest. Concrete pads are VERY large and include the picnic table. Girl in office was friendly on check-in. Pool area looked nice. Big place and if full, would be pretty crowded. Walked my dog a lot and saw the very long-term people in the back, but they are pretty separated from the rest. Place was very clean and grass was mowed, gravel roads were level and smooth, trash was picked up. Not a bad spot to spend the night or maybe two. We camped at Punkin Park Campground in a Motorhome.

I noticed that they had a new sign, and that many of the monthly campers were cleaned up. The sites around the pool are now concrete. It is a work in progress because the park buildings, laundry room and bathrooms are still out of date. The improvements were not overwhelming, but a sign that this little park is heading in the right direction. I hope to see more progress on my next visit. We camped at Punkin Park Campground in a Motorhome.

This is not the worst in the world but it is trying. The roads not impassable but are rough and pot-holed. My electrical box was a thing to behold and fear. You are almost on the shoulder of the interstate and you think the 18 wheelers are coming through the window. Two good points, it has pull-through sites if you are done driving for the day and need a place to stop. Secondly, it’s close to Campingworld. We camped at Punkin Park Campground in a Motorhome.

Great spot for us close to family in Hammond. Road going in is narrow as previously noted, but it is very lightly traveled. The entrance is tight but not a problem for careful drivers. The interior roads need a lot of work, many potholes filled with water on this visit. Place can get muddy when saturated by heavy rain as on our visit this time. Sewers are on septic system and our site had a problem, possibly caused by the recent frequent heavy rains. We had no problems on past visits. Our price is based on a weekly rate. We have used the park before but it is not really a "destination" park. We camped at Punkin Park Campground in a Motorhome.

Do not consider this park if you have an RV over 36 ft. Especially if you have a tow. The road to the park is very narrow as is the entrance. The park is also very close to the Interstate, so is noisy. Gravel/grass sites with low spots that collect water when it rains which then become muddy. Lots of permanents. The lake is nice to walk your dog but we will not stay here again. We camped at Punkin Park Campground in a Motorhome.

As other reviewers have mentioned, this is a good park for a place to stay for a few days. It is clean, felt safe, and the staff was friendly and helpful. There was a lot of noise from the Interstate, but since it was steady, it was easy to ignore. The Wi-Fi was steady, and the cable list was good. It you just need a convenient place to park near Hammond, this is a good choice. We camped at Punkin Park Campground in a Travel Trailer.

We stayed here for an overnight stop on the way through on I-12. We ended up approx 100 yards off the Interstate, the traffic noise was very loud. The grounds have gravel and dirt roads, the sites are grass and level. Its located on a dead end road that is a little difficult to find at night. Cable was poor and Wi-Fi was nonexistent. Lots of permanent guests. It is located close to a Camping World and a large RV dealer. 50 amp and water worked fine. There are only one or two pull-through sites and we got the last one. Good area for a dog walk west of the park around a lake. It you can take the noise its not bad for a quick stopover. We camped at Punkin Park Campground in a Fifth Wheel.
