About: Loblolly pines and stately magnolia trees, rolling hills, spectacular seasonal flowers, and a year-round mild climate await visitors to Percy Quin State Park. One of the original state parks cleared and constructed by the Civilian Conservation Corps in the 1930s, Percy Quin is today a delightful blend of the old and new. Located just one and a half hours from New Orleans, 1700 acre Percy Quin State Park provides a colorful natural backdrop for a variety of outdoor activities.
The 100 sites available for RV camping feature picnic tables, grills, and electrical, sewage, and water hook-ups. Hot showers are available in four bathhouses located in the developed camping area. One beach (for registered guests only), a yearly camp store stocked with picnic items and souvenirs, and a central sewage dumping station are located in the developed camping area.
