“campsites carefully blended into a lush wooded setting”

For R/V campers we've got 73 sites with water and electricity carefully blended into a lush wooded setting. The camp area has two large bath houses with clean showers and bathroom facilities to accommodate our guests. For our tent campers we have 15 tent sites with eletricity and water. Three small, rustic cabins are available for campers. They all contain kitchen areas, baths, a/c and heat. Each of our cabins will accommodate up to four persons. Three cottages are also available, accommodating up to six persons each. Black Bayou also sports a large primitive camping area for those who really like to get close to nature. A restroom and water spigot are conveniently located nearby.

The pull though slots are very wide and open.
The back in slots are asphalt and somewhat level.
Some of the sites don't have sewer but soon all will.

Restrooms and bath house:
Currently they are dated. I spoke to the Ranger on site and he said they are going to be torn down and updated with additional parking.

The private beach or swimming area is nice and is only for the RV guest. Their is a boat launch for only the RV guest as well.

The sites have picnic table and fire pits and have ample tree shade.

As for the other reviews on the rules and changes it's simple just abide by them. No issues for us and we didn't have the site inspected before we left.

We overnighted in our RV and found this campground to be nice. Went for a quick hike - the trails need some cleanup but we're guessing they are short staffed due to Coronavirus. It is very lush and natural and when we're through the virus, the Nature Ctr, Restrooms, Showers, etc. will be open making it a great option.
