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. We camped at Chicot State Park in a Travel Trailer.

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. We camped at Chicot State Park in a Travel Trailer.

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.

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.

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. We camped at Chicot State Park in a Motorhome.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

We love staying in parks with lots of trees. We enjoy staying on the south side of the park due to the trees. The north is a little plain and flat for us. Yes the north is easier to get in but if you have been camping a while then the south is not hard to get in. We have a 37 ft fifth wheel and get in no trouble and satellite works in most sites. Love staying here. Needs a little updating and some power boxes are a little far for some power cords. We camped at Chicot State Park in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at Chicot State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

The park is nice but the bathrooms were very dirty. The pool also had scum marks along the side. The lake had water lily's all over it and it did not look inviting. We had a senior pass so the cost was $8. The cost for others would be $16. I am not sure that I would go back there. We camped at Chicot State Park in a Travel Trailer.
