|Fontainebleau State Park Cabins Reopened|
Now Accepting Reservations
Visitors can once again experience the popular camp-style cabins built over Lake Pontchartrain at Fontainebleau State Park in Mandeville. Newly opened this summer (after Hurricane Isaac in 2012 prompted a $1.5 million renovation), the 12 cabins sleep 6-8 people each and offer screened porches and flat-screen TV's. The lake's shallow, sandy bottom in front of the cabins makes a great wading spot for kids. Book at www.ReserveLaStateParks.com
