Louisiana State Parks do not offer any discounts for out of state residents unless you are from the states of Maryland or Delaware and have the Federal Senior Pass. The fee is for one night and includes the camping fee of $22 and a $6 administration fee. If you make a reservation it must be for 2 nights minimum, but you can drive up and pay for one night if they have anything open. The sites are very unleveled. We were assigned a site that did not work for our unit at all, but changed to an empty site with no problem. The water and electric are so far back at the site that we needed extensions to reach our unit. The roads around the park and campground need a lot of work. Many of the sites would be impossible to get an RV leveled. The one bathhouse in this loop is modern with individual unisex rooms with toilet and shower area in each room. That would be the best thing to say about this campground. There is only one bathhouse for many, many sites. Because the bathhouse is so far from a large number of the sites, cars & trucks race up & down the campground road to the bathhouse all night. There is a trailer sized electricity generator or compressor of some type next to the dump station that turns on and off with a huge buzz. If that bothers you, do not take a site near the dump station. We camped at Chicot State Park in a Travel Trailer.Undo

This is another beautiful Louisiana State Park. We had a beautiful flat site that backed up to the woods and also had woods on the door side. Some of the sites have decks. We were in the south loop and preferred it to the north loop except their bathrooms were nicer. When is the last time you saw a trough urinal and gang showers in a bathroom? Antiquated, yes. Clean, yes. Some of the sites have terrible slopes so be careful when choosing a site. Lots to do in this park and I'm sure it's really beautiful in the spring and fall. I'd be concerned in the summer about bugs because of the amount of water around. The park is hilly. The WiFi was pretty useless but our Verizon MiFi worked well. ATT&T did not work so well. They really need to update the bathrooms in the south loop and make more of them available especially to the farthest end of the loop. Would definitely stay here again.

This is a fine park. The only issue might be that some of the sites are not very level. We camped in the north loop and didn't have a problem. The WiFi worked very well whenever we needed it, both with a laptop and our smartphones. The Arboretum is a definite plus for the park. The restrooms were always very clean.

Went here for Easter and had a good time with the family. The spots were very unlevel and very close to one another and erosion seems to be an issue in many of the spots. We camped in the newer northern section. The restrooms and showers were fairly clean. The campground was nice and clean even though this weekend it was full. Trash pick up seemed to happen every morning. There were lots of trails for bike riders and hikers. WiFi did not work very well at all regardless of what time we tried to use it.

Roads are narrow in places and make backing into sites tricky. Electrical panel was on wrong side on our site. Employee at office was very nice and accommodating. Only stayed one night due to bad weather moving through. Many excellent walking and bike trails available. We stayed in the south loop, we heard north loop was much nicer put did not go and check it out. We camped at Chicot State Park in a Fifth Wheel.Undo

Stayed on North end with friends. Clean and peaceful. Will come back. Cabins are so pretty on the lake. South End has wooden decks, but small lots. I like North end best. We camped at Chicot State Park in a Fifth Wheel.Undo

About 10 miles west of Interstate 49 along winding small road (see the real country side), park is on very hilly area with adequate paved sites, E/W at sites. Moderate sized lake with amazing number of large cypress trees growing in it; this being the most interesting feature to the park for me. There are facilities like swimming pool, boat put, in that I didn't really look at. Overall I just had a sort of oppressive feeling about the campground itself; just not pretty.

The park has two areas for RVs. We stayed in the North Landing Camping area which was quite roomy. Interior sites are flatter than the ones on the outside. Reserve America listed our site as flat but it still sloped quite a bit. Adjacent sites were worse though. Good wheel chocks are a must. Reserve America also listed many sites as not having sufficient room for slides however, I did not see any sites with restrictions and most campers had slides extended. HughesNet Wi-Fi is available which was slow but worked. AT&T cell phone coverage was weak but worked most of the time. New showers were private and clean. Power service at most sites is 30 amp. The South Landing Camping area was much more cramped and may not be suitable for big rigs. The park is large with plenty of trails for hiking or mountain biking and an arboretum with special activities. The lake was down during our visit so boating and fishing were not allowed. Beautiful park. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit. We camped at Chicot State Park in a Fifth Wheel.Undo

I went for my birthday and had a blast with my family. We love the wooden decks. We enjoyed the trails and nature. The park is redoing the cabins and they are beautiful. The lake was low but the docks would make it nice for fishing. There is also a beautiful pool, open in the summer. We camped at Chicot State Park in a Travel Trailer.Undo

We have camped here several times. It is one of the older LA state parks with two campgrounds, north and south landing. Some of the sites in the south landing can be tricky because of inclined approach to pad site and some are narrow. The majority of north landing sites are big rig friendly. A recently opened arboretum is awesome with great interpretive programs and trails. There is plenty of wildlife, hiking, canoeing, boating,mountain biking and friendly cajun campers. New bathhouse in the north landing and recently repaved roads have made it more pleasant. We will definitely visit again. We camped at Chicot State Park in a Fifth Wheel.Undo

Large beautiful state park. The only negative I found was that the campsites are not well kept. I had to clean broken glass, burnt upholstery, and other trash out of the fire ring and pit just to use them. I rated this park a 7 because of the un-kept campsite. Since they charge a fee for these sites, they should make sure they are well kept for the campers. The pool is large, great fishing piers available, and a very nice playground area. We stayed in the South Loop. Most of the sites I found were level in the loops. If you are on the main road through the south loop, watch out for the unlevel pads and sites where you have to walk down a steep hill to your pit/fire ring. We drove to the north loop. There is a very nice Comfort Station there. The only laundry facility in the park is in the North Loop; 4 mile drive from the South Loop. Finally, our site did not have a 50 amp connection so be prepared. We camped at Chicot State Park in a Travel Trailer.Undo

Great place to go camping. Well lit campground. Park rangers constantly patrolling keeping an eye out for people doing wrong or even on our kids. Didn't have any problems letting my daughter ride her bike around the campground. Great pool with lifeguards on duty. Concession stand. Wi-Fi available. This was a great place and we will be back. I think they must have even sprayed for mosquitoes. We had no problem with any bugs of any kind while we were there. And in Louisiana, that's saying something!

Beautiful campground with lots of trees and beautiful lake. Staff at the front gate were very friendly and knowledgable. I would have given the park a 10/10 but we lost electricity one night for almost 4 hours, no bad weather. The park has 2 emergency numbers for after hours, the first number was disconnected, and the other number was for the on call park ranger. It was a pager, and my phone call was never returned. We camped here for 6 nights. We camped at Chicot State Park in a Travel Trailer.Undo

Spent Easter weekend at Chicot. Very wooded and shaded, nice scenery and great hiking/biking trail around the lake. Nice fishing piers on the lake if you don't have a boat. Also offer boat rentals. Site was paved with trash can, bbq pit, picnic table, but no fire ring. Parking is very limited, barely enough room for camper and one vehicle. Did come across a few ticks. Bathrooms were outdated and not too clean. Trash was only picked up one day out of the three full days here. North camping site is 4 miles from South site. Plenty of children riding bikes and very family oriented, not too loud at night. We enjoyed our stay, would come back again and recommend this park to others.

There are two sections to camp in, the South and the North Landings. The South has 108 sites but be ware if you have a large rig this area is very tight and the sites are small, but it does have a swimming pool which could be important if you have kids. Now the North Landing has 100 sites and most are large. If you are using a satellite this is your best bet for reception. They are in the process of building a new bathhouse which should be ready by the spring of 2010. I would never consider staying in the South section.
