Great park, no hassle with late check in

We were running late getting to this park due to Baton Rouge traffic. The park office closes at 5pm so I called ahead. Since we had already reserved and paid online, the lady... read more

We were running late getting to this park due to Baton Rouge traffic. The park office closes at 5pm so I called ahead. Since we had already reserved and paid online, the lady gave me the gate code and said just to park in our spot. Some of the roads within the park had huge potholes. We had a gorgeous... More

We where here two years ago, park is generally a family kind of place plenty to do for a day or two. Restaurants are all over a half hour drive away. Internet is not only slow but also restricted. Roads are still rough and not my idea of big rig friendly. People that work here are great!

The park is about 20 miles out from Anacoco. We went there for a large family gathering utilizing 5 of the cabins. Check in was smooth and we were on our way. Parking for Cabin 18 was convenient. 1st impression of the interior was good. Bigger than I had envisioned. Walk in to a spacious living room with a couch,... More

We took the kids here for a day trip and they had a blast. I love the park and the area. It is right on the boarder of Texas and Louisianna so it is like being in both states at the same time. Love Toledo Bend Military Recreation area as well. If you are a veteran than you need to... More

Our Troop had planned to camp at this park, and we were not disappointed. As Scouts, they chose to use "primitive camp sites." I can tell you primitive 3,4& 5 have front row views of the lake. Site 4&5 are about 15' from the bluff; so if you have small children please be careful. Their is barricade safety tape, but... More

My husband and I decided last minute to take our teenage boys on a weekend trip to South Toledo Bend State Park, and are so delighted we did. We all enjoyed the beauty of the Lake!!! We will definitely make a return visit in the near future!

The park is beautiful. Love the primitive campsites. There was a burn ban in effect, so no hot meals was kind of disappointing, but understand that is beyond their control. My only complaint was spiders! Along the Hippie Point trail there were webs all in the trees. And on the beaches under the cliffs, there were hundreds!! Mostly Daddy Long... More

Roads are beyond yuk and parking for a toad or tow vehicle, non existant. The grass was 2 feet high in many places. Some patrons brought along personal weed eaters to clear their camping areas. I didn't notice anyone cleaning up after their pets. The beach was sandless and primarily mucky mud. Speed limit signs not obeyed by many. I... More

Had reservations from Friday - Sunday. Cannot believe how horrible the roads were! Potholes everywhere. The bathhouse was under construction & has been for months. The foliage has grown up terribly and is not as kept and clean as in the past. I am sure we can thank the State of Louisiana for employee cutbacks on staff!! So sad that... More

We planned to stay here for just one night, in an RV spot, but ended up staying for three nights due to unforeseen circumstances. However you really couldn't ask for a better place to be stuck. We visited off season so the place was really quiet and peaceful - perfect for only our second night in the RV. The site... More
