First and only 10 rating I've given to any park. Lake Claiborne State Park is absolutely beautiful. The camp sites are spacious and extremely well kept. The hiking and bike trails are great. We fished right from our site on the water. I was very surprised to find this park almost empty, maybe 8-10 campers the weekend we were there. This park has become our favorite. We live in Louisiana and have been to most state parks, they are all very good but Lake Claiborne is a top-notch park on anyone's list.
Top-notch well run and maintained park. We only stayed one day & one night as we were traveling but enough to qualify this park as first-rate. Topsail Hill has a little bit of everything including cable hook-up and sewer at site. We stayed in a pull-through site since we were traveling and enjoyed our stay and this park thoroughly.
Beach camping doesn't get much better than at St Joe's Peninsula State Park. Powder white sand with beautiful dunes and the sites in Gulf breeze almost right on the beach. The Shady Pines camp area it in wooded area. One warning, the base's nearby communication system disallows cell phones from functioning except near the front park registration office. We had a 5 day family get together and rented 10 campsites grouped together. Everybody concurred that they loved the park.
Beautiful park very well maintained and kept-up. The positioning and spacing of the campsites were done quite well. We loved the 40 by 20 wooden patios that almost all the campsites have. Wonderful hiking, biking, and horse trails. The staff was excellent, very friendly and helpful but not intrusive. Happy to recommend Lake Bistineau State Park, this is one of those that is towards the top of any list.
Park is well maintained. Nice trails and wildlife. The campsites are improved with ring & BBQ, but are quite small. few sites are able to fit in slideouts. The campsites are too close together for my taste and further closed in after unhitching and parking.
Chicot is our home state park as we live only 15 miles away. The most beautiful cabins I've seen in any state park, they are more like luxurious vacation homes than cabins. Only draw back is be prepared to reserve a year or two ahead or it'll be tough to get a cabin. This park has a little of it all, great scenery and wildlife (dear, possum, racoons, armadillos). The campsites are set up well with BBQs, pits, mostly well shaded, and very varied types of sites to accommodate different taste. Excellent nature trails, biking, boating, and fishing.
Very nice campsites that are spaced well and maintained. The fishing is good with over 1200 miles of waterfront to Toledo Bend Reservoir. We specially liked the paved trails with bridges over to other park areas. The restrooms, laundry, and other public areas were clean.
