I visited this state park with family in early May, and I had a wonderful time. We visited near closing time out of season, so we ended up being the only ones there. I felt like I was immersed in nature - frogs, insects, and...More

Nice, clean State Park. Not far from New Orleans yet feels like being out in the country (because it is 😀) The bath house is older but extremely clean, laundry facilities are available and reasonable. We enjoyed a week here in the cool of the...More

We spent the first 2 nights of our trip in CBD and the last 2 nights here. The campground was cheaper, cleaner, and quieter. Will definitely stay here on our next trip to New Orleans.

This was a great place to camp near New Orleans, but feel like you are way out away from the city. It is a fairly easy drive into the city if you want to tour there. It is also a great place to relax and...More

The staff at this park are very friendly, the sites are narrow and not as deep as they need to be to be able to keep off the grass. Its proximity to NOLA is a big plus, but the road we came in on was...More

Not in the park proper but within a few miles. There are battlefields to find and explore. And of course New Orleans 😁

Yes, I'm looking for a nice peaceful place to picnic and relax. I'm on the Westbank and was looking for something near or in Bellechasse.

This is a beautiful park in St Bernard parish area. Quiet, clean & very relaxing.
Hello, Interested in the camp layout from the RV campsites to the bathhouse. It appears that there is just one shower facility. Does anyone know what the walk is from campsites CI036 or CI038? (The map of the campsites doesn't reflect where the bathhouse is, but from what I can tell it looks like the campsites 01 through 013 are the closest. Unfortunately, these aren't available when we are going to be there). Any information on walking distance would be great and thanks in advance!

It really shouldn't be that far away. This camp has slots circling the bathhouse.
