1 Park near Mandeville, Louisiana
Aug 2015 - $28.00
$28 a night plus the silly $6 reservation fee LA state parks charge.
Bring a lawn mower with you doesn't look like the grass has been cut in the camp ground for over a month!
Got a pull through site close to the comfort station. Site space was ample and was easy to get in and out. Looking at most pull through sites in the "new campground" the pedestal is on the wrong side, our electric reached no problem had to make a Walmart run for another 25' hose.
Sites 73, 74(pull through), 75 and 76 are the only ones with sewer connections.
Restrooms very clean camp host was doing a good job keeping them stocked. Showers looked nice and clean but we choose to use ours.
Trash cans through out the camp ground had flies all around them could stand to be cleaned and sprayed a little better.
Day use area fills up with locals enjoying the lake / beach but they do stay out of the camp ground.
Some of the camp sites are turning into gravel as the asphalt has aged and shifted they are just filling in with gravel. If maintenance is not performed the entire camp ground will be gravel in the next few years.
I would have given this park 5 stars had it not been for the flies and the grass.
I was able to connect to the WiFi and get an IP address but could not surf. Verizon signal is excellent here since you are basically in the city so we used our hot spot. - Nizzy

The campground has low hanging limbs that you need to watch and the grass wasn't cut in the campsites. For $30.00 a night I considered this high for water and electricity. My site was tight for my 40 foot rig. The pull through sites are loops and therefore the size is deceiving. Will have to admit, the Park does have some beautiful trees. - bkboren

This is a huge park right on the north shore of Lake Pontchartrain. There are only 5 FHU sites, so be sure to make your reservation early if you need sewer. This is a heavily treed park, but we were able to get satellite reception from our separate tripod set up near the front of the rig at the street. Just ask for a satellite friendly site when making your reservation. The restrooms/showers are clean and conveniently located. LA state parks honor America the Beautiful passes (50% off) if your home state reciprocates. Unfortunately, Texas does not so we had to pay full price. I would definitely stay here again if coming to the New Orleans area. - golfkitty
