The staff at the park were nice and helpful. We met the camp hosts. They advised us to take the trail near the river and it was a great trail. We will be going back soon. Great weekend trip. We camped at Tickfaw State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Very nice park. Friendly staff. Level, paved sites with wood deck, partial to full shade, most have good space/privacy. No pull-throughs, but lengthy sites. Plenty of paved roads for biking, lot of interesting boardwalk and sand hiking trails, excellent interactive nature center, fishing pond/dock, clean updated facilities, pavilions and shelters for camper and day use. Very clean, well maintained park and facilities. Good OTA tv, cell phone reception. The park also has tent camping, a large group camp building and cabins. Will return for longer stay. Highly recommend. We camped at Tickfaw State Park in a Motorhome.

Really nice park. It's quite a way to shopping, very quiet. It was flooded in August 2016, about five feet of standing water. They've done an outstanding job rebuilding the place. It has 30 RV sites and a separate section for tent campers. Nicest RV bathroom I've ever been in. We camped at Tickfaw State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Very nice, clean park in a swamp land environment in rainy weather with paved asphalt good roads and sites. Sites for RVs long but narrow, and elevated a few feet above the surrounding ground, some sites a little unlevel length wise. Many with a large wood patio, a few gravel, some no patio. A very nice clean modern bathhouse elevated on piles, with a sign on the side at the level of a flood in 2016 up to the level of the buildings elevated floor. 30 RV sites with 12,30, 50 amp and water at the back of the long sites. Lots of tall pine and deciduous trees. The 20 tent sites are in more flood prone ground with a paved section for a car, a bordered sand filled large tent area, and water only. The day we were here it had been raining and the tent sites were just feet from standing water. There is a well designed dump station close to the bathhouse. The large nature center is closed on Sunday and Monday, with a board walk looping through the swamp in the back. Trails and playground didn't get to see. The RV fee is $20 with a obligatory $6 "transaction fee" even without a reservation so $26 plus tax. We camped at Tickfaw State Park in a Motorhome.

Tickfaw is a hidden treasure. Campsites are good size and well arranged for privacy. The only issue is that it is a swamp, which floods if there is a heavy dew! We have arrived a couple of times to find the park closed due to flooding. Be sure to call ahead. We camped at Tickfaw State Park in a Travel Trailer.

This is still our favorite state park in our home state of Louisiana. We've been several times with our old camper but this stay was our first in the new camper and first in 6 years. Nothing much has changed and in my opinion, it would be a perfect 10 rating if the sites had sewer. On this visit, the water level was very low - no canoe rentals - but we still walked the numerous trails and saw plenty wildlife. The splash pad is packed on weekends and thus feels too small, would be better during the week I'm sure. If you like typical wooded campgrounds with trails and other things for kids, you'll love Tickfaw. One of La's gems for sure.
(note: our site 23, while good did have our door to the camper near the concrete drop-off and we have a 31'. Also, if your water hookup is near the front of your unit like ours, bring long hose. I had to go to Walmart for add'l hose. Hookup is way in the back of the site by the elec) We camped at Tickfaw State Park in a Travel Trailer.

We enjoyed our stay at Tickfaw State Park. There is a small water playground for the younger kids. There are numerous trails, but most of them are for hiking only, no bicycles are allowed on the trails that have boardwalks. This campground had a wonderful nature center. My kids enjoyed seeing all of the creatures, live and stuffed, and enjoyed all of the hands-on activities. I did encounter an employee in the center who treated my question as though it was a stupid question. I was disappointed in his treatment, and hope that all employees are not that discouraging of questions. We loved hiking the beautiful boardwalk trails. We stayed in campsite 2, in the full sun. There was a stump from a recently-downed tree very near our fire pit, and we did have to ask the host to come tend to weeds/grass around it before we felt comfortable lighting the fire. They were very quick to take care of the matter. We camped at Tickfaw State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

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.) We camped at Tickfaw State Park in a Travel Trailer.

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.
