The newer campground area is more traditional in design. It has larger sites and some can accommodate the big rigs. Having said that, you need to realize that the view from your site will probably be the campers around you. The sites are bigger, but closer together than in many of the other campgrounds we visit.
I mentioned that Fontainebleau State Park is close to Mandeville. Since we found ourselves in the heart of Cajun country, we decided to diligently search for the perfect gumbo and shrimp po-boy sandwich. Sadly, we failed to find the absolute best and our search continues.Some people would say that this is something to look forward to on our next visit to Louisiana.
The park features:
- 30 and 50 amp electrical service
- Paved pads
- Water and electrical hook-ups
- One dump station
- There are some good roads for riding your bicycles
- We were able to watch ABC, CBS, Fox and NBC from New Orleans in this park via antenna
- There isn't wi-fi in the park, but AT&T's 3G and 4G service is adequate
- The restrooms and showers in this park are modern, functional and clean.
