The best camping near Lake Claiborne State Park guide

Overview

About

As far as Louisiana state parks go, this one packs in the natural beauty. There's a sandy beach for relaxing and a picturesque lake for water activities. Six serene nature trails let you enjoy the surroundings. Park guides offer hiking tours and present nature-based programs for entertainment.

Pull your RV into one of the 87 campsites, each with water and electrical hookups. Try roughing it with a stay at the primitive camping area. There are 10 deluxe cabins available for rent if you're more akin to glamping. Park facilities, including a pavilion and meeting room, require reservations and a daily fee.

Try your hand at disc golf at one of the two 18-basket courses. The park also offers excellent spots for avid bird-watchers to explore. Boat rentals are available, whether you prefer a kayak, canoe or flat bottom boat. Golf carts are permitted on the property but require an additional fee.

Notable campgrounds

  • Whispering Pines Campground: A serene spot surrounded by towering pines, ideal for reconnecting with nature.
  • Lakeview Campground: Offers breathtaking views of the lake, perfect for sunrise and sunset watchers.
  • Big Creek Campground: A favorite for anglers and boaters, with easy access to the water.

Tips for snagging a campsite

  • Book early, especially for peak seasons, to ensure your spot at this popular park.
  • Consider mid-week stays for better availability and a quieter camping experience.
  • Keep an eye on cancellation policies for last-minute openings.
  • Explore nearby camping options to maximize your chances of securing a reservation.

When to go

The best time to visit Lake Claiborne State Park is during the spring and fall when the weather is mild and the natural beauty is at its peak. Summer brings more visitors and higher temperatures, while winter can be less crowded but cooler.

Know before you go

  • Check the weather forecast and pack accordingly to ensure a comfortable visit.
  • Be aware of park hours, typically from 8:30am to 5pm, and plan your activities within this timeframe.
  • Remember to bring insect repellent and sunscreen for protection during your outdoor adventures.
  • Stay informed about any trail closures or area restrictions that may be in effect during your visit.
  • Facilities such as restrooms and picnic areas are available, but it's wise to bring extra supplies just in case.
