Lake Louisa is located in Clermont Florida and is only 20 miles from Disney in Orlando. It is a newer park and the facilities were really nice. We stayed here in June and bugs were only bad at nightfall. We got good reception with our verizon and only ok with our sprint.
This park is one of our many Trifecta parks, meaning we can hike, bike and kayak. We were easily able to roll our Kayaks to Dixie lake from our campsite. We stayed at a site in Dixie loop sites sites 1-30. Hammond lake was across the road from our campground. The other campground (Sandhill) is equally nice with the same gravel sites, 30/50 amp electricity and water but not quite as close to the lake. There is a dump station and some of the sites have full hookup with sewer. Reserve America does not note which ones have sewer too but when I did some more research I found one review that mentioned that site #’s 16,18,20, 30, 32,33, 34 (ADA), 35,36 (ADA), 37,38,39, &40 are the sites that have sewer too. Note: Only a couple of sites offer a water view due to the foliage and the trees.
In addition to the campground for Rv,tents and trailers….this park has cute little teepees for rent, tent sites, primitive sites,group sites, 20 cabins (no pets allowed) and even an equestrian campground with stalls and a corral. There are kayak,bike and canoe rentals at the Dixie Lake area camp store which is located next to the campgrounds. When you rent a kayak - you will only be able to kayak on Hammond Lake (unless you hand carry it across the street yourself to Dixie lake if the rules allow that) There are also fishing piers at both Dixie and Hammond Lake. You can also fish and boat on Lake Louisa too. There is also a cute hidden lake called Bear Lake that you can bike or drive to and even put in your kayak or electric boat on this more remote lake. However, since there is no public boat ramp access to Lake Louisa -unless you can hand carry or roll your boat to water….you will need to go to the Palatlakaha River Park and Boat Ramp to put your larger boat into the lake (there are no docks at the park for tying up your boat)
This park has totally awesome park roads for biking, trails for mountain biking and hiking, and equestrian trails. Be sure to carry a map, I got a little lost hiking because not all the trails were well marked. We also enjoyed riding our bikes into Clermont.
There is a longer review with links at our website www.travylcouple.com if you want more info than this review and video offers you.
Quite possibly one of the best sites in central Florida. Tons of hiking. Beautiful lakes, boardwalks, and most of all it has a beach.
Close to central florida attractions, however out in bfe. Love this park, hidden gem. Hiking, fishing, lake beach…..nice place to relax
The campsites along the lake offer fantastic views. You can canoe/kayak on there 2 lakes. The hiking trail could be better maintained and it offers very little shade.
Michael this is a great Park people-friendly canoes available spent four days had a great time
Having stayed at Lake Louisa State Park serval times we’ve enjoyed very spacious sites with beautiful views and an exceptionally clean property. The multiple lake views where so peaceful, I think the beach was my favorite by far.
Lots of campsites available, everything from walk in to 90 ft campers. Multiple lakes with canoe/kayak rentals. No boat ramp on State property, however there are several within 20 miles.Lake Louisa is the largest lake, allows unlimited hp, jet skis, and has decent fishing for Bass and crappie, Lots of catfish also, with an occasional mudfish caught while fishing for other species.
Campgrounds are quiet, patrolled, very clean. Lots of walking trails to see the abundant wildlife. Although there is a warning for gators, I have been camping/fishing over a dozen times and have yet to see the first one. Children should have no problem catching bluegill at any of the lakes near campgrounds, worms are best, but crickets,minnows, and occasionally small spinners produce results.
The rolling hills of this park are breathtaking, and the wildlife is majestic, the campsites are clean and well kept…. definitely coming back
Secluded campground in natural Florida. Hookup sites were well kept and at the end of the park so there was no thru traffic. To get to the hookup sites it Is an 8-10 minute drive from park entrance. Keep that In mind when running errands (making that drive multIple times a day can be annoying). But the benefit Is a quiet campground. Amenities are very clean. Most sites have 10-30 feet between them. Sunsets are not to be missed here. Lake Louisa area and Clermont is the only hilly area of Central Florida. The pine forests here make you think you might not be in Florida. Great park for people who want Natural Florida without the tourist traps and beach towns.
so many options… kayaking horseback fishing beach trails cabins. friendly staff well kept camping area
