10 Reviews of Fairview Riverside State Park
Wonderful place

My family went and stayed here for a weekend and enjoyed ourselves very much. It was a cold weekend and was very pleased that the bathrooms were heated.

Very nice state park

Quiet, clean, well kept park with pretty river side views. We stayed here for 11 nights in Feb while traveling though the area. We used it as a base camp to go into New Orleans for a weekend (50 mins). The staff is very active in keeping the park clean and maintained. Our favorite things:

  1. Great views for short walks
  2. Close drive to groceries, resteraunts, and services.
  3. 3-4 complimentary washers and dryers (not common).
  4. paved pads for RV. (larger RVs like ours use the entire width but smaller rvs get some patio.)
  5. Overflow parking for our truck.
  6. Bathrooms were clean everytime I went, which is just as much about the guests as the staff. Our least favorite things: Like a lot of state parks there is not a sewer connection (they do have a dump station) but we knew that going in. We were close to the on-site facilities and stretched our tanks for the 11 days.

We would stay here again.

Very quiet and relaxing campground.

A quiet and well maintained campground. We always enjoy our stopover night here on the drive to Alabama. It is our go-to place. The Otis House tour and other artifacts are interesting and worth the time. We routinely walk the campground road and trails each trip. Once we spotted a few alligators near the boat ramp area. There is also an eagle’s nest viewable from the Swamp Trail. It is very peaceful sitting on the boardwalk bordering the Tchefuncte River. The restroom/shower are individual rooms and huge. The park manager and staff are always pleasant and helpful.

Small campground, State Park, 2 sections, 1 section above Bayou, 2nd section has boat launch a camping spots.

Love this place, small, quiet, close to Bayou & Lake Pontchatrain. Close to good restaurants & fresh seafood.

Beautiful Views: Louisiana at it’s best!

This is such a lovely park! Just north of Lake Pontchartrain on the river, it’s quaint and clean. We only stayed one evening, but our sunset walk was worth it! Be mindful to choose a spot with lots of shade- we didn’t and regretted it.

Nice Park Tucked Away

Nice State Park on the Tchefuncte River in St.Tammany Parish. Bathhouses are clean and single use so you can take care of using the bathroom, showering, drying your hair…etc all in one private room. RV spots are concrete. Water and electric hookups, no sewer, but they do provide a dump station, has a nice play area for kids, and provides primitive camping spots as well. There is a fishing dock, and a wooden pier trail. We like staying here near our family.

nice park

nice family camping, great for bike riding, fishing and camp fires. some nice water front lots. sorry it was raining when we went so not many pictures.

No Gators in January

Had a great time. Reserved 3 primate spots for new years weekend. 13 ppl total - 6 adults, 7 kids (ages 4-14). There was a great boat launch spot for the kids to put kayaks and canoes in the water (brought our own gear - no rental)

Pros: quiet and peaceful, no active gators in January, clean and nice bath houses (heated), beautiful setting and views of the river.

Cons: very short hiking trail

Very Nice! Great Views! Great Sites!

Loved this CG - very nice and great sites. Amazing views across the water. Check it out for sure!

Fairview-Riverside State Park, Madisonville, LA

Nice campground, grass kept cut nice, trees with shade, spots for both tents and rv's/campers. Nice boardwalk and short trail, but no long hiking trails. Great access point to Tchefuncte River. Park is close to town also.
