We come here all the time, often riding our bikes from Mandeville and into the Park. $3/person but you can buy a year pass that is worth the money. Lots of trails and the beach at Lake Pontchartrain.

Great place for camping. They have camps over the water for rent but you need reservations in advance. The park has a large water front on Lake Pontchartrain besides the wooded forest.

We needed a bit of R&R from the city and this place was the perfect retreat. Between the beautiful trails and expansive guest areas we really enjoyed our time.

Used to be a pool there a long time ago. After hurricane Katrina, they took out pool, built nice pier, beach, playground and splash pad but no pool anymore.

there are many trails. the beach has no life guards so it really doesn't close. the park entrance closes about 9 (I think) but if you are camping there is an entry code. so this is only a problem for day visitors
