    Do u rent fishing boats

    • Hi Diana,
      Kayaking and canoe rentals are available, including self-guided tours, but we’re not sure about fishing boats. I recommend contacting Lake Charles State Park for prices and availability on fishing boats at 870 878-6595.

  2. Arthur Harvey says:

    Why can’t I see the camp sites ? Site 47

    • Hi Arthur,
      You should be able to see all of the campsite photos for Lake Charles State Park.
      Click HERE to go to the Lake Charles State Park Campground page (campsite 47). You can also click on other campsite photos of that campground to view.

  3. Lisa Lillard says:

    Do you have a guide that identifies which campsites can accommodate a 40 ft RV?

    • Hi Lisa,
      If you click on the “Make A Reservation” button you’ll be able to see the driveway length of each campsite, check availability, pricing and make reservations.

  4. Patricia Campodonico says:

    Can I use a regular household electrical extension cord on the camp site hookups or do I need and adapter?

    • Hi Patricia,
      Generally the ‘hookups’ for RVs/Trailers require a special adapter. You can double check by calling the Lake Charles State park at: 870 878-6595

  5. How is the cell service and internet service? We are booked in site 70 and wondering about service.

    • Hi Amy, We’re not sure about the cell or internet service at Lake Charles State Park campground. Might be best to call the park and ask: 870 878-6595
