Camping at San Miguel Park

Camp-Louisiana caught up with Cheryl to talk about opportunities for great camping at San Miguel Park on the Toledo Bend Reservoir. She also gave us some insights on the best things to do in the park and where she would camp when staying at San Miguel Park.

Cheryl’s Favorite Things To Do
Some of the best things to do are picnicking at the water front shelters, fishing or swimming in the great Toledo Bend Reservoir

Cheryl’s Favorite Campsites
#2, #4, #15, #19 or #33 These are more popular because you have more open spaces between the RV sites and they are all 35-40ft. sites.

Get To Know San Miguel Park

When was San Miguel Park founded? How did it start?
San Miguel Park plans were approved August 1971. The Recreation Parks were conceived in 1969 as part of the FERC relicensing process. FERC required that recreational facilities be included in Toledo Bend Reservoir. The park has 108 acres of wooded land with 1.5 miles of shoreline.

Being right on the Toledo Bend Reservoir guests love to spend time on the water. The reservoir is known for its great fishing. But boating, jet skiing and swimming by the beach are other popular activities. If water isn’t your thing hit the trails and do some hiking or biking. During your journey take a break at a waterfront picnic shelter and have a bite to eat. There are some great bird watching opportunities while on the trails or through out the entire park.

Where is San Miguel located? What are some other attractions in the area worth checking out?
San Miguel Park is south of Zwolle and north of Pendleton Bridge, close to Zwolle. (381 San Miguel Road, Zwolle, La 71486. Phone: 318-645-6748).
