An excellent example of progressive campground design, Loleta has many sites, and all its facilities are designed for people with special needs. Once the site of a burgeoning timber town in the late 1800s, Loleta Recreation Area now serves as a popular summer retreat for the citizens of Marienville and its surrounding area and for families interested in a weekend of casual camping. The focus of the recreation area is its small lake, which occupies the site of the old lumber mill pond. The Civilian Conservation Corps constructed the current lake along with the boathouse and picnic areas in the 1930s. The lake features a beach, as well as a volleyball court, a play area, picnic tables, running water, and showers. On summer days, even in midweek, this part of the park gets fairly busy. Also, several hiking trails offer short, easy walks through the park environs.
