The park staff called me Saturday morning to tell me that they were cancelling my reservations for the week due to flooding. I am really not surprised since there has been so much rain in the area recently. I toured the park previously and was surprised that the restrooms were about 20 ft off the ground on piers ... I should have suspected they had a flooding problem. The restrooms and showers were very clean and the floors were dry. The laundry room boast a half dozen top load washers and dryers (free to use) plus a couple of snack machines. I tasted the water and it was clean and pure ... no iron or sulfur taste. I will try this park again in a drier season. All of the sites were smooth surfaced and level and many were very deep >70 ft, with patio's picnic tables and a fire ring. The dump station is in front of the comfort station on a pull thru lane... it doesn't appear on the park's map. It is best to camp here when not in the "rainy season' due to frequent flooding. Only 30 sites and 30 tent sites available. Have all your supplies prior to getting to the campground as it is about 15 miles to groceries and supplies. We camped at Tickfaw State Park in a Travel Trailer.

This is a nice Louisiana State Park located in an isolate forest surrounded by swamp with a bayou leading to the Tickfaw River. The nearest town is Springfield about 10 miles away so bring what you need. It is literally at the end of the road so don't give up you will get there. Tickfaw has 30 RV sites, 30 tent sites and 14 nice looking cabins. It has a nature center, splash Park for the kids and several nature trails. The interior roads and site parking pads are paved and in good condition. The sites are spacious, quite and private. Each has a wooden deck, lantern poll, fire ring, and table. The campground is cut out of tall oaks, pines and Cyprus trees so satellite reception was a no-go. Verizon had 2/4 bars and off air TV reception was good for all networks. There is WiFi and it work reasonably well at site #7. The bathhouse is very clean and well maintained. The laundry has 5 washers and 2 dryers. All looked relatively new, worked great and are free to use. We camped at Tickfaw State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Our two-night stay was cut short due to a storm front. We stayed just one night, visited the nature center, and took a short hike on a boardwalk trail. Nice staff advised us on incoming weather. Shower/toilet building was clean and in good condition. Campground was quite full, but very quiet. We were with our children, ages 7 & 8, who enjoyed the nature center and the easy hike. We camped at Tickfaw State Park in a Motorhome.

Great park. Most sites have wood patio area, some do not. Spotless bathhouse and free laundry. Great nature trails. Recommended sites: 1, 3, 7, 9, 13, 15, 16, 17, 19, 21, 23, 25, 27, and 29. 1 & 3 are handicap accessible. 27 & 29 are more secluded and the ones we will try to reserve next time.

Walmart about 10 miles down the road , this park is WAY out in the boonies , quiet though. water hook up was way at the back of the site so had to use extra hose for our water supply. most sites have a patio deck next to the site , sites mostly level although a little narrow . clean park

We stayed here by accident really. We got tired and decided to stop for the night, and saw a sign for the park. We were very pleasantly surprised. The park was flooded in 2016 and rebuilt. Everything is nice and new. Friendly camp host. Biggest drawback was dump station instead of campsite sewer hookups. Beautiful park though. Funny thing is that they padlock the gate at night so if you plan to leave before 8 am, you are locked in and can't leave without being let out. There is also a $6 fee in addition to the camping fee for the first night. Our site was very level. We didn't unhook, and slept comfortably because it was so level. Some sites have small wooden decks on them as well. Park has 3 acre catch & release pond, nature center, river access and (according to the park host) alligators that leave people alone. We camped at Tickfaw State Park in a Travel Trailer.

You are not going to just happen onto this park - not a lot around. There are some pretty small roads getting to the park, but manageable. It is a very pleasant, quiet park. Even on Thanksgiving weekend, it seemed very calm with only the sound of kids playing. The sites are long and level with strong 50 amp hookups and water. The campground is well tended and manicured. We were able to get DirecTV satellite by using our portable dish and placing it near the road. Verizon signal was strong for both voice and data. Sites are well spaced. We would stay here again if wanting a quiet, calm few days. It is not a good choice if you want to view the sites around New Orleans and environs. There was supposed to be park WiFi and it showed up as a channel but would not get internet. They informed us that the internet had been down since sometime the year before when there was a bad flood in the Park. We would visit this park again if in need of some quiet down days. We camped at Tickfaw State Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

There are about 3 miles or so of hiking trails in the park, about half on board walks. It is also pleasant biking on the park roads. There is not a lot around the park. Come with the supplies that you will need for your stay. We actually left a few days earlier than we had planned because we ran out of things to do.

Love this park! Nice and quiet. Clean restrooms and despite being in a swamp, hardly any mosquitoes! We were lucky to have an ADA site which is all paved. We camped at Tickfaw State Park in a Travel Trailer.

This was our first trip camping at this park but it definitely won't be our last. The sites were spacious and all have grills, fire rings and lantern hooks. Ours was semi shaded with privacy on 2 sides. The park has a nice nature center and plenty of trails going through the swamp areas as well as a playground and water park. They also offered canoeing, fishing and volleyball but we didn't visit those areas. We camped at Tickfaw State Park in a Travel Trailer.

It's a good 15-20 minuets to town so stock up on ice, groceries, firewood before you get there. Also, rv Park to water park and playground is about 1 mile so bikes are a nice option.

Very nice park. Friendly staff. Level, paved sites with wood deck, partial to full shade, most have good space/privacy. No pull-throughs, but lengthy sites. Plenty of paved roads for biking, lot of interesting boardwalk and sand hiking trails, excellent interactive nature center, fishing pond/dock, clean updated facilities, pavilions and shelters for camper and day use. Very clean, well maintained park and facilities. Good OTA tv, cell phone reception. The park also has tent camping, a large group camp building and cabins. Will return for longer stay. Highly recommend. We camped at Tickfaw State Park in a Motorhome.

Tickfaw is a hidden treasure. Campsites are good size and well arranged for privacy. The only issue is that it is a swamp, which floods if there is a heavy dew! We have arrived a couple of times to find the park closed due to flooding. Be sure to call ahead. We camped at Tickfaw State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Very nice, clean park in a swamp land environment in rainy weather with paved asphalt good roads and sites. Sites for RVs long but narrow, and elevated a few feet above the surrounding ground, some sites a little unlevel length wise. Many with a large wood patio, a few gravel, some no patio. A very nice clean modern bathhouse elevated on piles, with a sign on the side at the level of a flood in 2016 up to the level of the buildings elevated floor. 30 RV sites with 12,30, 50 amp and water at the back of the long sites. Lots of tall pine and deciduous trees. The 20 tent sites are in more flood prone ground with a paved section for a car, a bordered sand filled large tent area, and water only. The day we were here it had been raining and the tent sites were just feet from standing water. There is a well designed dump station close to the bathhouse. The large nature center is closed on Sunday and Monday, with a board walk looping through the swamp in the back. Trails and playground didn't get to see. The RV fee is $20 with a obligatory $6 "transaction fee" even without a reservation so $26 plus tax. We camped at Tickfaw State Park in a Motorhome.

Really nice park. It's quite a way to shopping, very quiet. It was flooded in August 2016, about five feet of standing water. They've done an outstanding job rebuilding the place. It has 30 RV sites and a separate section for tent campers. Nicest RV bathroom I've ever been in. We camped at Tickfaw State Park in a Travel Trailer.
