I absolutely love this park! My husband and I rented a cabin (#15) over spring break just to try something different. Every year we go to the beach but this year it was exceptionally cold. To rent a cabin or camping spot you have to visit reserveamerica.com; this place stays booked so it is important to make your reservations in... More

There are areas to rent bike and kayaks and it has clean bathrooms. Park also has cabins for rent with spectacular views. I would visit again but with plenty of water bottles since only found one vending small store. One of the lakes has a 'beach area' good for kids cause it also has a playground.

We've been to Lake Louisa several times and I can confirm it's my favorite camping spot. It's incredibly quiet, hiking/nature trails for miles, beautiful scenery, many birds of prey flying overhead (a black vulture landed in our site twice), no problems with raccoons, etc. Many campsites have natural privacy from your neighbors. The bath house and laundry facilities are quite... More

The trails are pleasant and you can rent canoes there. We had a picnic my the lake and then went for a hike. It was a pleasant day out.

Took a drive down from Ocala to ride in Lake Louisa. It was breathtaking. The rangers at the front of the park are very nice. The equestrian area is way in the back but spacious. Trails are great and well marked and maintained. Views are terrific. Can't wait to go again !

very nice campground with nice sites and clean bathrooms. Would recommend this campground in central FL. Not far from grocery stores and other tourist attractions.

Given the terrain of central Florida, I guess I should not have been surprised at the appearance of this park. The lake is nice - with a big sign warning of alligators - but on even a March day, it was hot with no trees for cover. The dead cypress all along the lake shore look eerie. I wouldn't call... More
