We spent 4 days in their deluxe cabin on the lake. The cabin spacious and well equipped (except a bottle opener). Wonderful place for nature lovers: alligators swim by or hang out under the cabin, deer graze by the road, raccoons join your BBQ picnic...More

I've been going to Chicot since 1962. I love the vastness of it, the many trees and you can pick a campsite based on total privacy or sites closer together for family gatherings. The only drawback to Chicot is that they have made their sites...More

RV camping was perfect. However, walking through the park we saw a creepy guy in a late model car driving towards the south campground. When we got back to our campground, he was just coming out of the deserted bathroom, got in his car, and...More

This is a great park with over 100 camp sites. From tent campers to Class A's, everyone should be able to find a place. We stayed in a 32' foot 5th wheel. One has to be careful as some sites are not level, and trees...More

Deluxe cabins are great. Very clean on the inside. Only complaint is the glass walls are getting dirty. We have been going there twice a year for about 15 years and every time they seem to be a litter more dirty slightly hindering the view....More

We live close to New Orleans and it took us at least 3 hours, but it was easy driving. One thing to remember is that there isn't much around the park so if you aren't bringing a picnic make sure to plan your meals... More
