This is a very nice state park located on lake Lincoln. The park is an easy drive off of I-55 (follow the signs). The park has large concrete pads many of which are lakeside. Lakeside pads have sewer connections. There is a nice swimming beach and day use area all within walking distance of the campsites. Some park facilities are old and some relatively new. All were clean. Oddly enough the newer lakeside campsites are not on a paved road. I could see it getting dusty in the summer months. Even with this minor drawback the sites are very nice and provide a gorgeous view of the lake. Definitely worth a visit!

Lake Bruin State Park recently went through renovations which added 25 additional sites (including pull-through sites), a water park for the kids and a new comfort station. The park is very clean and quiet. There is a swimming beach, playground and several fishing piers as well as boat rentals. The park is on a very beautiful oxbow lake that is gorgeous at sunset. The beauty of the lake alone is worth visit. The lake front sites are right on the water. Our site was less than 15 feet from the water's edge. Overall a very nice state park.

Lake D'Arbonne State Park is a very large park. You have to drive from the campsites to get to the tennis courts, pool area and boat launch. The park is heavily wooded and a nature lover's paradise. There are several nature trails available. There are not many lakeside pads likely due to annual flooding. Pads are asphalt and many are not level so you may want to drive through first to pick a site. The park is relatively new and very clean. It is also within easy driving distance to Farmerville where restaurants and a Wal-mart are available. We enjoyed our stay here and plan to return in late May.
