Great Campground With Many Activities On Site and Surrounding Areas

My understanding is that this campground is currently closed due to the impacts of Hurricane Ida and efforts are being made to get it opened back up soon.

We tent camped on an rv site (May 2020) and set up our tent on natural ground beyond the asphalt pad.  The other campers in our area were…

Clean bathrooms and beautiful park

The moss trees give this park such a beautiful vibe! The facilities were extra large and clean, huge park, lots to explore. No wifi. Great beach area, trails and views of the lake. We will be back!

Don't bother

Well, the only reason I'm giving 2 stars is because of the people who work there, otherwise it would have been none. I almost got stuck twice because the spots aren't on solid ground and the spaces are too close together. They are a mix of sand and dirt. Place was a mess after Hurricane Ida, but…

Beautiful State Park

This is not my first time here but I am really impressed with some of the upgrades. Many sites now have long concrete pads. My 37’ 5th wheel and truck easily fit on the site.

Very convient

The beach was a 5 minute walk from the campground. The park was clean with clean restrooms and nice people mainly quiet. Kind of narrow paths so be careful if your bringing a big trailer that doesn’t turn so sharp.

Quiet, clean peaceful

We’ve stayed here a number of times and have always enjoy our stay. It’s a nice quiet and clean park on the banks of the Tchefunte River just above Madisonville. 45 minutes from New Orleans. Check out some of the local restaurants in Madisonville.

Okay for overnighter

Got in late at night, so was nice of a ranger to call me with the gate combination. Hard to navigate the campground at night, and, when I finally found our reserved site, someone else had taken it. Didn’t look like a reserved sign was posted. The next site over was open—and also without a reserved…

Quiet

Decent spot about 45 minutes from New Orleans. Makes sure you purchase a permit. It's about 11 dollars. And it's for a year. Well worth it to get. There are porter potties. No hookups. Make sure to pack in and pack out.

Fontainebleau State Park

There are two campgrounds here. The north and south the north campground has more trees. There are no sewer hookups there is a dump station. There are no activities planned here so you're on your own. It is close to anything you need within 10 mi. The campground is located on the shores of lake…

Very nice, but lots of bugs

This site was quite nice.  Loved the beach area and the picnic areas, and the live oaks are to die for.  There are also historical relics there and an museum which were very very nice.  

Only downfall we could see was the sheer amount of bugs.  We brought a bug zapper, thank god, and that…

Close to the city

Didn’t really enjoy the campground, didn’t feel like a very safe area and it was not that nice. But great location as far as close to NOLA!

Very close to New Orleans, are not so good

If you're just stopping by for a night in New Orleans this is the camp ground to go with! Very affordable, paid $30 for full hookup, compared to other RV sites near the city were about triple the price. You can Uber into the french quarter for about $12 and takes 15 minutes. However it's not a very…

Great Getaway

Had a pull in site. Great view, spacious sites, lots of trees and space. Horrible deer flies. Make sure you bring a screen tent to enjoy the outdoor sitting. Lots of critters…raccoons, squirrels, and deer. Will definitely be back

Quiet, shady park

Although a little inconvenient, it is a nice clean park.  The staff will help you back into you spot, which are all perpendicular to the street.  All the roads to the area are narrow and low hanging wires.  Be careful as you approach.  Most of the NOLA activities are on the other side of town.
