On the eastern shore of one of the country’s largest manmade reservoirs, clean and cool waters gently touch the edges of North Toledo Bend State Park. The Toledo Bend Reservoir provides visitors to the park with an opportunity for a wide variety of water-related activities in a pleasant environment. More than 900 acres of pine filled lands are available for camping, picnicking, hiking and relaxing in the heart of nature. Whether you’re picnicking for an afternoon, camping overnight or roughing it in the woods for several days, North Toledo Bend is the perfect spot.
North Toledo Bend State Park is situated on a peninsula which extends into the reservoir at the mouth of Bayou San Miguel. The land consists of rolling uplands and interconnected ravines and valleys. The park site lies in a region of major lumbering activity, with a mixed pine and hardwood forest covering most of the park.
A spacious and attractive Visitor Center complex contributes to the park’s year-round versatility and appeal. In the main building is a meeting room which can be reserved for group functions. Also within the complex is an Olympic size swimming pool and a bathhouse. A camping supply store and laundry complete the complex and provide visitors with all the necessities and extras that might be needed during a long or short stay in the park.
Adjacent to the visitor center complex is the picnic area, where picnic sites, shelters and a restroom are nestled among the pines.
