Close to LSU

I would suggest BREC Farr Equestrian RV Park if you are interested in being close Baton Rouge or LSU. A typical fairgrounds type camping area. Sites have electric and water. Remote dump site available. Bike path trailhead is there, with extensive pathways on the levee.

Very busy campground

We had our 1st trip there over spring break.

If you want quiet time, this isn't the best place but if you like a lively and busy one, it's for you.

Large pool, store and Cafe. Playground and jump pads for kids too

They have a water problem

I want to give them a 5, but they have a water problem. It doesn’t take much rain to have standing water in many sites. Lots of the pads are old and narrow. You find yourself stepping out your coach into sloppy mud. The grade on some sites are too much for class A coaches. But if the weather is good and you get a good pad, it’s a beautiful campground.

Highly recommended, but busy on weekends.

Went for a few nights solo camping (with my dog) in late January, so we had the tent area to ourselves until Friday afternoon. Really impressed with the cleanliness of the grounds, but some of the fire pits and grills could use some work. Great variety of campsite layouts, as well as a couple of wheelchair friendly ones. Facilities were clean and plentiful. Several miles of trails showcasing the beauty of southern Louisiana. Will definitely be going back.

A parking lot.

We stayed 4 days and it served its purpose, to visit New Orleans at a reasonable price. Don't come here thinking it's the great outdoors camping spot with plenty of activities. It's basically a gravel parking lot with hook ups. We were very close to the office and still couldn't get the wifi. The park backs up to a Railroad yard but the train noise wasn't the problem. The traffic noise on the adjacent Hwy was terrible and all night. The sewer hookups stick up a foot above the ground which makes it impossible to get your discharge hose to drain without standing out there to help it. It is also in a bad part of town, if there is a good part. Now saying all that I still gave it three stars because for the price, and location to N. O. It's about the best you're going to get.

Wanted to love it more. Flooding issues

Have waited six months into our RV life to start reviews for fair comparisons. Stayed 2 nights in 35 foot RV+tow car at$31/night. We really wanted to like this park more than we did as it has great hiking trails, gorgeous natural setting, deer running around everywhere. But there seems to be a chronic flooding issue(not surprising for the location of course). All around our campsite was very flooded. And we saw other sites were the actual site had a few inches of standing water on it. Many of the hiking trails we could not do because of flooding. Even came back days later to try to hike after no rain and some parts were still flooded and very muddy. Staff at gate very friendly and helpful.

Primitive trip

Have visited twice. First visit, my original campsite was flooded and was able to switch to another site. Last trip was good but site 35 is very close to 33. The fire rings are within 30 feet of each other and can hear other campers talk, however the primitive sites were nice. They have about 4-5 trails, a splashpad, nature center and you can rent a canoe. Had alot of fun and is pet friendly.

Very nice campground

Very friendly and helpful staff. The grounds are clean. We are here Easter weekend and it's a little noisy, but not bad. We have stayed here before and we always enjoy our stay.

Convenient & Fun!

We made an impromptu one night stop here and it was totally worth it! The resort is right off the interstate with a nice large gas station right next to it. We stayed on March 31 and it was quiet but I can imagine it gets busy in the summer. Our kids loved the lazy river. We stayed in site 202 and it was ideal as we have a class A and flat tow a Jeep and didn’t want to unhook for the one night. The site was a nice level concrete lot. The only downside on this trip was the store was closed for renovations and we did need some supplies. Nothing to ruin a trip though. Would definitely come back!

Great stop for NOLA sightseeing

This state park is really pretty, full of lush Spanish moss trees, hiking trails, and historic markers.(although finding out this was a plantation for 150 slaves was unpleasant).

It’s only 45 mins to New Orleans so it’s a great place to stop, drop, and sightsee for the day.

It had full hook ups available. Free WiFi even. The spots are level and concrete… and nicely spaced. There are picnic tables and grills available for use too.

Careful - when it rains, it floods.
