Description

Big open parking lot on Lake Rousseau.
No signage with park hours or overnight restrictions. Building at one end that has a light that stays on all night, but other than that it’s quiet and hardly any noise from the street.
There’s a porta-potty, and 3 covered docks with picnic tables on the lake.
One bar of service with Sprint, but worked well enough.

Highlights:
Fireflies at night, lots of stars, big grassy areas perfect if you have a pet, felt safe and quiet enough to sleep with my back doors open to let a breeze in.
Picnic tables on dock were perfect for coffee in the morning. Even had an alligator keep me company while I journaled. (he was nice and stayed in the water.)

Latest Check-Ins

As stated before, large open parking lot with a boat launch. Mostly fishing culture, with many friendly fishermen that leave after dark. One of the quietest and most peaceful parking lots I’ve stayed in. Big enough for a big rig, as many fishermen tow their boats into here. 3-4 bars Verizon service. Porta potty. Arrived at 5pm and stayed until 10am. Lots of birds turtles and alligators in the water besides fish :)

Report Check-In

Last of the fishermen cleared out an hour after dark, just my little van and a class A on the other side of the big paved lot. A couple carloads of kids raced in at 2am to (I’m guessing) drink a few beers but they were surprisingly quiet. Didn’t hear them leave.
Quiet, no signs prohibiting overnights, mostly level. Would stay here again.
