From Communities Digital News: Louisiana Adventure at Fontainebleau State Park

By Matt Payne


Mandeville, Louisiana – As we pulled into Fontainebleau State Park located on the north shore of Louisiana’s famed Lake Pontchartrain, it was silent, still and impossibly dark.

By day, the ten-minute drive from the park’s entrance to its renowned and recently renovated over-the-water lakefront cabins is a beautiful one highlighted by lake views, tangled wood and moss-draped oak trees.

By night, it is far more curious. Punctuating the otherwise opaque night, glowing at every height imaginable and in all directions, were eyes.
