Great Value with Senior Discount

As we were driving into the Springfield, LA area from the east, our GPS wanted to take us a different route than the website directions that follow the signage to the state park. This would have had us end up on dirt roads, so definitely follow the website directions and follow the signs. Check in was quick and easy. When we booked the reservation we used the 20% military discount but found out upon arrival that LA State Parks give a 50% discount for seniors 62+ and you don’t have to be a state resident. The ranger processed a refund for us as he checked us in. You cannot beat$10 a night for this park even though its still recovering from hurricane Ida and the boardwalk trails and canoe rentals were still closed. You can also still see massive tree damage throughout the park but the campground(CG) area has been cleaned up. After check in, we proceeded to back-in site 17 with water(very good pressure) and 50/30 electric. The pad was plenty long enough for our 39’ fifth wheel and our F-450 truck as are most sites in the park. Site 17 pretty much sits off by itself and it's one of the most spacious sites in the CG. Most of the sites are pretty much a 90 degree angle to back-in but there’s enough room to swing your vehicle. If you are worried about backing, site 15 is probably the easiest back-in site the way it sits off a curve. We got 2 bars on Verizon. They actually have a laundry room with 3 washers and dryers costing both$1.75 to wash& dry. However, there was not a change machine in the laundry area. There’s a small fishing lake behind the CG down a short road between sites 15 and 17. The lake has a cool boardwalk fishing pier that was in good shape. There’s a dirt trail that goes around the lake but be aware there are some pretty good sized gators lounging about. We enjoyed our 2 nights stay and would not hesitate coming back.
