1 Park near Mandeville, Louisiana

It is hard to rate this park since it was saturated with water the week we stayed there. The park is located on Lake Ponchartrain with easy access to New Orleans over the causeway ($3 toll). The sites in the campground are very close together and there are a number of sites that are very shady. We had a pull through site with FHU that was only a couple of steps from our neighbors. There are a number of trails in the park but with the rains we were not able to use them. There is a great paved rails to trails path that runs through the park and extends for several miles east and west from the park. We would stay in this park again if we were in the area. - Co-Mike

This is our first visit to a Louisiana State Park. This is a beautiful state park. It has many large trees with hanging moss. The park is used frequently as a backdrop for picture taking.
There are two campgrounds at the park: old and new. The old campground (sites 99 - 143) and new campground (sites 1 - 98). The old one has tighter spacing between sites. There are two shower buildings in each campground. The old campground has one "old" shower bldg and one "new". The new campground tends to "sell out" faster than the old one. The new campground has 4 or 5 full hookup sites while the remainder of the sites, along with the old campground, have water and electricity. There are also a large number of "unimproved (tent)" sites.
This park must have a high water table (it is on Lake Pontchartrain) since there was some standing water throughout
There is a fantastic bike trail (Tammany Trace) that crosses the road into the park.
There is a beach on Lake Pontchartrain along with a "kiddy water
Overall this was a very relaxing and enjoyable park. - shirleyj62

This is a nice campground and not just an RV park. The spaces are spacious and have a lot of room between them. Wooded but not too wooded that you can still get your satellite. Only a few of the RV sites have sewer but there is a dump site at the park exit, otherwise 50 amp power and water at the sites. I would stay here again. - jpm777
