Previous review info is spot on. Beautiful park in a remote location. We were in the area to go to NCAA Regional baseball tournament in Lafayette . We did not fish but it looks to be an excellent place to camp and fish. We camped at Lake Fausse Pointe State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Great state park setting. Nice level and tree shaded sites with good access. Being there in early April it was very sparsely occupied. Even though there wasn’t much competition you had to get in line to do laundry with the free washers and dryers. Apparently the locals find the fishing excellent, but as a Floridian I would advise you to steer clear of the alligators. Wi-Fi is filtered by the State which is annoying. Be sure to have all your provisions before coming here as the nearest store is a long, long way away. We did pick up some fresh peeled crawfish at Blanchard’s Seafood which is only about 10 miles away. Now if that sounds far, its only halfway to the store! This place is so remote my GPS didn’t know where it was (I’m serious about that). If I’m ever on the run from the law, or an ex-wife, I will definitely come back here. We camped at Lake Fausse Pointe State Park in a Motorhome.

What a gem. Excellent hiking, canoeing and so peaceful. Well that is until the weekends but most people settle down by 11 pm. Bathrooms are clean but old. No recycling. The park didn't inform us they had free Wi-Fi, figured it out a couple days in then 2 days later a storm knocked it out. Also didn't inform us there were free washer and dryers in the campground. Drive into Saint Martinville and stop at the Longfellow-Evangeline State Park; it was really informative and beautiful. Wild life is abundant. We camped at Lake Fausse Pointe State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Some sites hard to get into due to the narrow roads in campground. The power and water pedestals are on the right side of the site which means you have to pass electric and water lines under the camper if your connections are on the drivers side. Be prepared with supplies as there are no stores near by. Bath houses kind of dirty due to busy weekend but appear to be taken care of. The best time to camp is in the winter so the mosquito's don't carry you off. We will return We camped at Lake Fausse Pointe State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Rate reflects America the Beautiful senior pass rate for a LA resident. This is a very pretty state park. Staff was very friendly; though the park is short handed with respect to personnel so there is not a lot of presence. Gates are locked at night so there was not a lot of traffic cruising through the park. As we have found to be common in southern Louisiana state parks, the “locals" tend to take over on the weekends and rules are not enforced which creates additional traffic with cars and boats. Also, the rules as to number of vehicles and people allowed at campsites are not well-enforced. Sites are fairly level, 30/50A electric, water, but no sites with sewer. Sites and park grounds are kept clean; trash was emptied regularly. Camp hosts were very friendly and visible. No Verizon service. Water pressure is OK, electric stays on.There is only one dump and it’s on the road out of the park, so at peak departure times the waits can be a little lengthy. Mosquitoes were terrible; you must spray with repellent in order to stay outside. There is a boat launch and numerous areas to fish from the docks and banks. Cypress tress and other hardwoods provide ample shade. Wi-Fi is provided and works very well; sometimes it slows a little during peak time. Laundry room was clean and operational. We would stay here again. We camped at Lake Fausse Pointe State Park in a Motorhome.

We really liked this campground. The site we had reserved, site 77, had a bit of a drop off and would not have worked for us. Changing to another site worked out wonderful. Sites are very well spaced, nice shade in our site. The staff and ranger where very helpful. The ranger and camp host stopped by frequently. The campground is quiet at night, and the host checked each site after someone left to be sure it was picked up. We did not want to leave and wished we could stay longer. We would definitely stay here again. We camped at Lake Fausse Pointe State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a beautiful park. The best sites are along the river and each has a small deck over the water. Wonderful place to sit, read, and watch the alligators swim by. A great central location for visiting Cajun Country. We camped at Lake Fausse Pointe State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Very nice park located across the levee in the Atchafalaya Basin, and connected to Lake Dauterive. We had a campsite on the water and our boat was able to remain in the water at the dock behind our camp. Very nice bike trails, and park was well maintained. Security is constantly providing patrols, and all employees are very friendly and knowledgable. The only thing I would like to see improved is the opening of the splash pad. Last year there was some issues, it was closed and never re-opened. Would be the perfect place for kids if the splash pad would be open.

This is a great campground. The Wi-Fi signal is strong here. The hiking trails are well-mapped and easy to find. Lots of wildlife in the area. The road from the north is narrow and runs along the levees and is a bit curvy, but we made it fine in our 31' motorhome with toad. Our neighbors were a bit noisy with their music, but what can one do? It's well laid-out and easy to find your way around. Beautiful scenery, especially with the trees just starting to leaf out. We love it! We camped at Lake Fausse Pointe State Park in a Motorhome.

Sites were clean, as was the entire park. Staff was both friendly and helpful. Some sites were fairly close together, but overall decent spacing. Water/electric were on the wrong side on many of the sites, but our electrical cord was able to reach. I think that some of the sites would be difficult to back in a long motorhome because of the narrow road and the narrow pads. Lots of wildlife around, and lots of places to fish as well. Can highly recommend! We camped at Lake Fausse Pointe State Park in a Motorhome.

The parks is only a 9 if you enjoy remoteness, which I do. Fishing, nature and miles from any where. We ate a St John's Restaurant in St Martainsville it was wonderful. The park is great and we will return. No Verizon reception. The parks Wi-Fi is fast. We camped at Lake Fausse Pointe State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

I agree with all of the comments from previous reviews. However, I would add a few more comments. The Golden Age pass has not been accepted here since July 1, 2010 even though their website and reservation agent said it was. The rate however can't be beat at $16. Also, beware of the narrow entrances to your space as previously mentioned. We picked site #4 for the length but could not get our 40' motor home backed in. We switched to #10 which is great for big rigs. There is no cell connection but great Wi-Fi. We camped at Lake Fausse Pointe State Park in a Motorhome.

This is a smaller state park; however, it is very functional with all of the attractions within walking distance of each other. Several of the loop sites are difficult to back into because of the narrow road, steep drop off, and wood post. This park is located in the middle of the Basin so expect to deal with more flying insects than usual. Also, unless you are a real outdoorsmen, I would suggest avoiding the longer hiking trails during the summer months. The horseflies are a constant nag and you really cannot enjoy your hike or bike ride. Strong Deet repeliant helps; but does not keep them from hitting you in the head. The water park is great and the nature center visit is a must. We camped at Lake Fausse Pointe State Park in a Travel Trailer.

This is a great park. I would have given it a 10 if sewer hookups were available and the bathrooms were cleaner. Our site backed up to the lake and was perfect. Has very nice Camp Hosts. It's a long drive of about 23 miles from I-10, on a two lane road to get here. Some of it was rough. We were lucky enough to be told not to use GPS to get here. Others did not know that, and were sent down a very rough, gravel road. So get directions from the office. We would return when we want to have another swamp adventure. The $9 rate was because of Golden Access. We camped at Lake Fausse Pointe State Park in a Motorhome.

We used to stay in the cabins at this park at least once a year. I think this is THE park that got me hooked on camping enough to make me buy a used pop-up and go more often. We only live about 4 hours from this beautiful state park, and it's one of the best I've ever camped at. Lush forestry, quiet, way out in the boonies kind of stuff here! I've never NOT seen an alligator at this park. The comfort station is top notch! The Wi-Fi is strong. The sites are paved, shaded and pretty darn level. The water park is great for cooling off. Cell phone service is sketchy: but that's because you're so far away from the hustle and bustle of the big city. Fishing is always good: even from the banks, but canoe rental makes it even better. The hiking trails are beautiful, but, SERIOUSLY, bring LOTS OF REPELLENT!!! This is SWAMP COUNTRY in every aspect of the term! The mosquitoes will beat and rob you at gun point!! You will not find a friendlier staff. Its a good 12 mile drive to any type of grocery store: so STOCK UP ahead of time. All of the waterfront sites have piers and are excellent for early morning fishing, gator watching, and evening bat watching. I LOVE this campground, it is easily in my favorite top 3 in the country! We camped at Lake Fausse Pointe State Park in a Tent Trailer.
