The sites were spacious and had plenty of room between sites, even though the park was mostly full it didn't feel cramped and we couldn't see the people on either side of our lot. We were in site 11 which had a screened in shelter with a picnic table inside and out, which was super nice for getting away from the mosquitoes. We were a couple of sites from the nearest bathroom, but a little far from the bathrooms with showers. It is very close to the fishing pier which was nice because everytime you went to the restroom you could look down at the pond and one morning I saw a great blue heron in my walk back from the restroom. The mosquitoes were not too terrible, but we all got a bad case of chiggers even though we had bug repellant on. It was the all natural repellant so not sure if it works on chiggers. The part of caddo lake in the park is a very small portion of the lake, but is filled with cypress trees. We took a boat tour with captain Ron's pontoon tours which took us into a different part of the lake that was filled with bigger cypress trees. You should definitely go on a boat tour if you want a better view of the bald cypress. Our tour guide was Byron, wasn't crazy about him or his snarky attitude. It was $20/person for an hour tour on a covered pontoon. We called the morning of the tour and went at noon although they do have several tours in a day. I think there are some cheaper options out there, but we just took the first guy that answered the phone. For good eats in Jefferson we ate at Kits Kornbread and Pies and the bayou cafe and bakery, the homemade bread and sinful brownies are to die for! The general store has ice cream!
