Did not stay only rode through and walked around on scouting trip looking for a nice place to camp, just not what I was looking for.
Municipal campground next to a playground with what looked like one long time resident, bathrooms had chains and padlocks on the door due to vandalism (as per the sign).
Around a dozen tent pads with tables and BBQ pits and same amount of RV spots
Nice boat ramp across the street with Pearl River access.
Had pics but phone died, sorry
this campground has been around for a long time. It has great festive activities for the seasonal holidays and a general laid back mind set year round. Halloween decorations were in full effect. The campground has a river running through it making it a great option to go up river and kayak back down.
The campground is split into 2 sides - primitive and RV. A general store sits in the middle for any necessities. We setup our tent area in the primitive area near the river/beach area. It has many trails to walk through, open areas for activities, bath houses, and more.
About 30 back in gravel slots, the neighborhood is not very scenic but it’s a good location right off I-10 and 15 minutes to the French Quarter. I’m a single female traveler and I did not feel unsafe. It has showers, laundry (though a few machines don’t work), a coded gate that closes at 8pm, and a nifty human size chess set. The prices seem to change by season and during events so call in. It is by a train depot, so there is considerable noise. There’s a snow ball stand going south on Chef Hwy on the right that is worth the excursion though I promise 😂
It’s a city not a national park though one could make argument big cities are like zoos. Anyway super cheap under $20 full hookup. Sherltered behind gas station next to a free way so there is noise but not inside cab. Laundry room was clean and operating as was showers. Owner was nice enough to walk us out. No frills off street Orleans on a budget look no further
A very nice state park. Our visit was too short to enjoy much, but we definitely did enjoy it for the overnight-to-late-morning that we were there! and, there are playgrounds and a beach!
A family of raccoons must have been fed by someone, though, as they had NO fear nor qualms of coming right up to our table end one evening! 😱
I have only been to Yogi Bear for Halloween but it's the best Halloween fun ever! Everyone decorates their campsites, there's hayrides and haunted houses. They have plenty of scheduled activities to keep the kids busy all day. Have a little cash in hand as some activities do cost money (but only a few bucks). On Saturday night they close the campground roads down for 2 hours and all the kids go trick or treating. Bring lots of candy! Plan ahead, they do 3 weekends of Halloween in a row and they book crazy fast (we booked a full year in advance). I'll be honest, the campground is old and run down and I probably wouldn't visit here outside of Halloween but highly recommended for some great family Halloween fun!
This camp ground is great for summer months but outside of swimming there's not much to do or see. You pay a lot of money to park your camper in a large parking lot and swim. Campsites are close, no trees or wildlife, you can kayak on the lake but it's expensive.
There are cabins and RV sites with FULL HOOKUPS, WiFi, cable, fish cleaning stations, a pool, and a washer and dryer. The owner and operators are friendly and the place is kept clean. There’s no shade so it gets pretty hot during the summer which is the only complaint I have. We’ll definitely be back next time we stay close to Grand Isle.
This is a great little campground away from it all. Keep in mind it is away from everything, not near attractions of any sort. However, the campground is clean and quiet. There is a swimming pool in the summer, as well as the river for fishing and swimming, and fishing pond on the back side. Many amenities such as pool tables, showers, a little store, fire rings, outdoor and indoor games, etc. We wintered there for 6 months, and enjoyed it.
Love this place, small, quiet, close to Bayou & Lake Pontchatrain. Close to good restaurants & fresh seafood.
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.
Friendly, kind and helpful owners offer a kid’s playground, swimming pool and large RV campsites. Full hookups at most sites. Tent camping accommodated as well.
My kids LOVE Yogi Bear because of what it is. YOGI BEAR lol. The place is very run down and I don’t really see where the money is actually going. The sites are horrible, uneven and broken up cement. Doesn’t really pay to have the sites cemented where they are. In the back they aren’t and it really looks like you park where you want. Lots of people brag about their activities but all the times we’ve been here we’ve never known about any activities. The permanent sites here are just ratchet looking. They also have its own “neighborhood” of people living here. The golf coarse was filthy and full of mosquitoes. I’m from south Louisiana so I know about mosquitoes and this was a bit ridiculous in the middle of the day. The basketball court is all broken up and crappy looking. I just see way better Yogi Bear campgrounds out there and it’s such a shame because my kids love Yogi and this one is so close to home!!
My ex-husband and I were tricked into a membership here, years ago. The thing that sold us was we were told that the coast to coast membership that went along with the plan we were considering would give us 50% off of airline flights. LIE! We were also told that Jellystone in Robert, LA would be a cheap place to stay when we would visit a theme park that was being built in the near future in Robert. ANOTHER LIE! The owners of the park are total jerks! Our daughter's finger got caught in the fan in the ice machine that was exposed, with the grill that was supposed to be covering it that was broken and hanging by a screw. We had to take her to the ER, where she almost lost her finger. It was negligence on their part by not fixing the grill properly and they wouldn't pay for the hospital bill. We sold our membership after that and took a big loss. These people don't care about their members. They're just in this to make as much money as possible by "raping" everyone with their high prices and lies. I only gave it 1 star because I had to in order to write the review. I wouldn't recommend it to anyone!
Humble little Pelican RV Park is not for the faint of heart! For the lucky few who can appreciate a unique city-camping experience, it's an adventure all unto itself! Located off the canal in the Gentilly neighborhood of New Orleans, this area is legendary for its street-racing scene. You'll find yourself with front row seats to the action, which goes on most nights of the week and draws huge crowds from all over the world. The park is small, and what it may lack in amenities is made up for by its oversized lots and reasonable rates. An easy 6-minute drive puts you in the French Quarter, and the gated community is often a little-while home to some of New Orleans' many musicians and performers. The property owner and operator, Greg, has a heart of gold. Be sure to stop in at Smiley's Grill, located at the park's entrance, to say hi to Greg and grab a good meal for a great price, as well.
We enjoy going out to Tickfaw SP every chance we get. It has some great shady sites; paved, back-in; majority have wooden decks that are campsite level.
We also see wild life when visiting, raccoons, rabbits, many varieties of birds, and yes, snakes (it's nature, people). The snakes we have seen have been garter snakes and king snakes (non-venomous).
Great splash-pad for the kiddos in summertime. Wonderful Nature Station and great fishing, either at the pond or at the river at the end of the park.
