Lake Louisa State Park

LakeLouisaSPEntranceSignLake Louisa State Park is located us off US Highway 27 pretty close to Walt Disney World. We could here the fireworks going off from our campsite. There are still lots of orange trees in the area and indeed the park has about 100 acres of them within the park boundaries that they lease out to a local farmer. Sadly, they are slowly dying out with one thing and another and the park rangers will not be replacing them. Anyway, you wind up and down a twisting road all the way to the back of the park to get to the camping area. The sites are long, half have sewers on site and there is shrubbery and small trees between most of the spaces but it still feels pretty open. The bathhouses are heated using solar panels and they each have one washer and dryer a piece. To our delight they only charge $1.00 per load here.

There are three different large lakes within the main park boundaries not only Lake Louisa but Lake Hammond and Lake Dixie. They have 20 large cabins that run along Lake Dixie with fire pits, barbecue grills and picnic tables outside each. The campsites also have a picnic table, fire pit as well as clothes line posts. The only place you can swim is in Lake Louisa and it is still too cold and windy for that. There are fishing piers out into the other two lakes and quite a few people were making use of them one of the sunny days were were there. Since, the camping area is in a valley area you only get between two to three bars on your cellphone and no air TV stations without an antenna booster. This park has a quiet time of 10:00pm where most of the others are until 11:00pm.
