6 Parks near Mount Hermon, Louisiana
Jun 2016 - $13.00
Coming in on a Saturday night we didn't have reservations because Mississippi requires you to book Friday and Saturday night. Worked out well as we got a senior discount and no reservation fee! Park is very pretty and the lake is beautiful. Bathrooms are air conditioned which seems to be rare in state parks. Showers were decent and had hot water. One of the toilets was left running all night and I never saw a camp host. My site was a little hard to back into as the roads were narrow. - Ocotillo

I grew up camping here. only 8 miles from home. It is a great local attraction. - Mitch Dorr

We've stayed here several times in years past. It's been a while since we were here last but we love this park. The park is nestled in the woods and the lake is beautiful. There currently is no fishing in the lake because it was just restocked after being drawn down for repairs on the dam. However, boating is still allowed. Fishing is supposed to resume in 2017. There is also a golf course on the property.
The staff is very friendly and there is a "camp store" in the campground that has the essentials for camping. I suggest taking a walk on the South end of the lake around the dam area. Very nice scenery. There are also cabins and group cabins for rent. There is a great seafood restaurant about 10 minutes North of the campground entrance called Mr. Whiskers. Very good food, friendly staff and good prices. Check it out.
We had 3 campers in our group and enjoyed the weekend. We cooked out, sat out by a roaring campfire, walked the property, and had a great time. - mike9767

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

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

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

A real melting pot of a campground. Everything from tent campers to 40' fivers. From shirtless, tattooed guys to well dressed couples walking their dogs. If you do not mesh well with all types, this may not be your place. Lots and lots of beer drinking. If you want to let it all hang out and have a great time tubing this is your place. If you want a nice serene, quiet weekend with the kids as we do, try Percy Quinn State Park right down the road. Some turns in the C.G. are a little tight. We caught a rainy weekend. The gravel roads held up nice and standing water did not seem to be a problem. We did have a good time but we seem to get along with all types. - Cajun_A-Bear

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

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

This was our first time here. The park is very clean. We stayed in the Upland section. Very spacious sites, gravel pads but they were level. Great walking trails, a little tough to ride bicycles due to the hilly terrain. We would definitely stay here again. - KDplus2

This is a nice clean park. The state park is 1700 acres and has 2 campgrounds, a water park, canoes, rafts, horses and 6 miles of walking trails. All areas are kept clean. The price is a Winter rate with a discount. If a person is from Arkansas or Delaware and have the America the beautiful card there is a 50% discount. All personnel of the park are very friendly. Great value. - goldwing2

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
