This park is big, beautiful, and well maintained. However, the campground needs a ton of work. The problem with the camping is they allocated too small of an area for the number of sites they have. The sites are on top of one another and not very well maintained. The bathrooms and showers were somewhat dysfunctional but were reasonably clean. The free laundry was the best part of the campground.

Three times we have been without power this week. Did not have sewer sites as we were told we would. Buggy even in December.

Beautiful and Nearby Lake Charles
This is a big wonderful park for hiking, day trips and picnics. If you like the scenery and want the convenience of an urban park this is perfect. The RV sites are all close together but well placed so you a a sense of privacy. We picked up plenty of nearby down dead branches and had a campfire in the fire ring. Showers and laundry were clean and fully functioning plus having a sewer hookup was great. We stayed for four days and loved it. We would definitely come back. Just a side note we are moving on from LA to TX and must say all the 4 LA state parks we visited were awesome.

For $28/night this was a good deal. Quiet, but sites are very close together. Bath houses are clean but no hot water when we were here. A cold shower on a 48° night is not for us. Trails to explore, geocaches to find, great for 1 night.

Not The Best
All in all we love the state parks of Louisana. The surroundings of this park are fantastic. The camping sites are average. Some are good some not so good. The premium site we originally picked was not so good. Big hole on the pad. We changed to a pull through and it was fine. Some sites very tight with trees. Be careful in choosing your site and you will be happy with the park

Absolutely beautiful park! What a great find! Spots are closer than other state parks we've stayed at, but still spacious. The lady at the station was kind of snippy but you only have to deal with her once. Lots of wildlife. Water and electric only at our spot, others had sewer. Dump station is close though. Can't wait to go back and stay longer.

Sam Houston Park is one of my favorites. Beautiful any time of the year. The wildlife abound, from alligators and turtles to raccoons and deer. The trails are great for hiking and biking and the river and pond have good fishing.
