This was another great Louisiana State Park. Sites were nicely spaced. Most all backed up to the woods. Most all had wood decks attached to the paved pads. Restrooms were clean and convenient. The park had multiple areas of interest, i.e., pond, river, hiking trails, nature center. Would give this park a 10 if cell service was a little stronger. Highly recommend. (P.S. Check out Charlie's and Lil' Miss Winnies for food in Springfield, and Paul's in next town of Ponchatoula for breakfast or lunch and antique shopping.)

Just got our new RV on the same day we stayed here. Originally headed out for another park but decided to stay close to home. After spending the day closing on the trailer, getting home from the dealership, and buying supplies we were tired and it was dark already. Arrived at the park and asked if they had any open sites which she said there was only one. Once in the camp ground area there were several sites that were booked with no one on them.
Backing in our 26' RV for the first time in the dark was interesting. Camp was rather quiet as expected and enjoyable. We only had a 25' drinking water hose for the trailer and had to hit up Walmart to get another hose so it would reach. The hook ups are rather far back from the pad on all sites after looking at them all the next day.
We had new sheets and towels we had not washed yet so we utilized the laundromat in the camp ground. $1 each to wash and dry machines were old but did an impressive job. We camped at Tickfaw State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Small gem (only 30 RV sites) WELL WORTH the 11 miles from I-12; long paved sites nicely treed and spaced for privacy (some with decks!); bird boardwalks; friendly rangers. Only drawback: dated bathrooms/showers. We camped at Tickfaw State Park in a Motorhome.

What a great campground! Long level paved sites with deck. Clean bath rooms & laundry. OK WiFi. 3 nature trails to explore and a very nice nature center. Very friendly park rangers and camp host. Gates are locked at night. Would stay here again for sure. We camped at Tickfaw State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

A bit of a drive takes you from I-12 to a sweet little park in the woods. We were in Site 4, which is pretty much in the open. A simple paved spot, with no "patio" area, which many of the others have. Only a few sites are available for reservations, which we had. I used my "Geezer" pass and got a refund via mail or to my credit card. The girl at the check-in wasn't sure which method would be used. Lots of great boardwalk trails and a fishing pond. Go out early on your hike to see the numerous birds. Life in the swampland is amazing. Well worth the ten miles or so travel. We camped at Tickfaw State Park in a Motorhome.

A very nice Louisiana State Park, but way off the main road. Actually part of the park is a swamp, and the park was closed off due to flooding the week before, so call to make sure it is open before driving there. The sites and drives are well paved tarmac and nicely spaced with well mowed grass. The bath house is fairly new, clean, and built high on stilts to keep it out of floods. There is a tent campground loop also separate from the RVs. A large nice looking nature center is there, but closed on Sunday and Monday. There is a water splash for kids, and two nice board walks through the swamps. All the Louisiana campgrounds we have stayed at have been very well done. A 9 only because far off the road to get to. I would stay there again. We camped at Tickfaw State Park in a Motorhome.

The campground is located 32 miles east of Baton Rouge off I-12. It has newly paved driveways for all of its 30 large RV sites. However, the driveways are elevated and only 10 feet wide, making it difficult for backing in 5th wheels and trailers. All sites have an elevated wood deck, BBQ, fire ring, and lantern post. The RV sites have water and electric (20, 30, 50 amp). There are also 20 tent sites with water only. There is a laundry ($1 wash, $1 dry), free internet, and showers, but no recycling. There is a water park for children, several bike and hiking trails, a fishing pond, and canoeing opportunities (rentals available) along the Tickfaw River. We camped at Tickfaw State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Such a beautiful setting, and a truly fascinating experience! The sites are about 50 feet or more, and at such angles that you always feel as if you are alone with nature. The boardwalks through the swamp are incredible. We have investigated all of them in the past 3 days, and have never been disappointed! You can lay in bed with windows open and hear the birds and other animals and feel like you are camping under the stars. I would come back here again and again!!

Nice level sites, good Wi-Fi signal. Excellent nature center, bring your bike to ride around the park. We stayed on site 22, narrow site very tight with a slide out and awning. Would stay again, difficult to book on weekends in the summer. We camped at Tickfaw State Park in a Travel Trailer.

We stayed here two nights and loved the place. Long backin sites with wooden decks. Lots of places to walk to and a very nice nature center. Our only problem was the fire ant nest next to the driveway. We were able to use our roof top satellite dish. We would stay here again. We camped at Tickfaw State Park in a Motorhome.

We love this park. Only reason for not getting a 10 is the lack of sewer hookups. Level pads, most with wooden decks, fire rings and BBQ pits. Nature center, crafts for kids, wooden boardwalks, splash pad, lake with trail encircling it, etc. Beyond what most state parks offer. We camped at Tickfaw State Park in a Motorhome.

Water/Electric, no sewage . The park was full, schools in LA are out the entire week of Thanksgiving. Clean well maintained facilities. Individual shower/toilet suites. Coin Laundry on site. The park's focus is nature and wetlands. We camped at Tickfaw State Park in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a beautiful park. The restrooms were very clean. The park was mowed and there's no trash anywhere. The sites are large and paved. Many have a wood deck. There are numerous trails and a large children's water park which we, as adults enjoyed too. The boat ramp is nice and allows access to the Ticfaw River. We kayaked and enjoyed the scenery. There is plenty of biking too. The cabins are very nice with AC and flat screen TV and were getting new Sealy mattresses while we were here. We will definitely stay here again. We camped at Tickfaw State Park in a Fifth Wheel.
A beautiful state park, small, so reserve early. Very quiet, with several board walked trails, plenty of area to bike and hike. One of the cleanest S/P's we've seen. The sites are long and level, most sites have a wood deck area which is very nice, sites are well spaced and give you a nice sense of room and privacy. Fishing pond, canoeing, water spout park for the kids, picnic areas galore. We can see why so many people claim Tickfaw SP as their "favorite". It's going to be one of ours.
