Stopped overnight and wanted a pull thru site. Due to heavy rain, pull thru sites were all soggy and wouldn't support an RV. Owner went all over until he found a site that was dry, and allowed me to use it as a pull thru even though it wasn't, so I wouldn't have to disconnect my toad. Never had so much help from an owner before. Good place for an overnight stay, but a bit of a drive off the expressway. Quite a few seasonal residents. The park also has an RV parts, repair, and sales facility along with the campground. There is also Wi-Fi, but only at a "hot spot" near the restroom/showers.

This park is a work in progress. It's only a couple years old, and the owners both work full time while getting the park up to speed. Most of the sites are gravel and stone, although a few are mainly dirt. You may want to check for that if rain is expected. There is only one toilet and two shower stalls per gender, and you may have to wait your turn during busy weekends. They have cable TV, but you need to get a de-scrambler from the owner to get the signal. WiFi is available, and signal strength is dependent upon your location. All in all a nice park that will be even nicer as time goes on. Friendly owners who deserve success in their venture! We will definitely stay here again.

Beautiful park just a few miles off I-65. Don't follow your GPS because it will take you past the entrance, and then it will be very difficult to get turned around again. Instead, watch the signs along the road as you approach the campground. If traffic noise bothers you, try to get a site further away from the highway. It's only a 2-lane highway, but it's also a truck route. The only real complaint I had was that there is only one bathroom/shower for each gender. Not nearly enough, especially since a large number of sites don't have sewer hookups, so lots of folks want to use the park shower. Other than that, it's a very nice park to spend a few days in. Lots of trees, good roads and sites, nice lake, and a walking path.

This was an RV park and RV repair facility, but the repair facility has relocated to a larger building a few miles away. Good, wide stone roads that will make for easy maneuvering for even the largest rigs. Level sites, good water pressure and power, sewer hook-ups at each site. Every site also has a wood deck The WiFi has been repaired, and works well. The clubhouse has been completely remodeled, and has two restrooms with showers. There are also washers/dryers available. Very nicely landscaped, although the trees are still young and small, and there isn't a lot of shade yet except along the western edge of the park. Definitely a nice park, but still all back-in sites.

We began stopping here for the night on our way home from Florida several years ago. The reason was that they offered a special "Snowbird" overnight site for $20.00, with electric hookup only. It was great, and we stopped the next year and found it went up to $25.00. This year, they wanted $30.00. I guess because it was later in the year and the water was turned on, but I found this excessive considering there is nothing else available for your use. When you compare it to other parks where you get full hookups, paved sites, cable TV, WiFi, restrooms with showers, etc., for about the same price, it's no longer a bargain. I don't think we'll be staying here again.

This is an attractive park, but the hookups are in inconvenient, hard to get at locations. At least in the site I was on. As to Wi-Fi, they state "Limited Wi-Fi", which is an understatement. We were less than 75' from the office, and could only connect for 30 to 60 seconds at a time, after which it would lose signal. On the plus side, they have the nicest, cleanest restrooms and showers I have seen in many years of traveling. Each is a separate bathroom with toilet, shower stall, sink, and chair, and they were all spotless. I would stay there again for the bathrooms alone.

Date of Stay:

Not real happy with this one. The bathroom and shower were both badly in need of cleaning. Also, there are two separate camping areas - an old and a new. We were assigned a site in the old section, and it was tight, the roads were crumbling, the pull through sites were only about 35' long, and some had hookups on the left, while others had hookups on the right. We drove through the new section, and it was considerably nicer with larger sites, longer pull through sites, and well maintained roads. If you choose to stay here, try to get a site in the newer camping area.

I give very few 10's, but this one deserves it. I had to look hard to find anything that could have been improved upon, but I guess it would be the WiFi, which was marginal. We were able to connect about one out of every four times we tried, and even then we frequently lost the signal. Other than that, this is an excellent park to stay at. You call the operator, and they immediately send a shuttle to take you to the casino, pool, or wherever. The only shortcoming at all was that it was located in Marksville, which is not exactly a pleasant city to visit. Other than that, well worth the visit. They also give Passport America and Good Sam discounts, plus they run specials. We paid $5.95 for the first three nights, and $22 for the weekend nights. You just can't beat that.

I was a little disappointed in this park. We had a lake front site, and across the lake is a huge power plant that made a constant loud noise. Added to that were the trains delivering coal that were constantly blowing their whistles all times of the day and night. This would have been a more pleasant experience if we had camped in a site that was actually out of sight (and sound) of the lake. That said, the park was nice enough, clean, and the lady who checked us in couldn't have been more pleasant.

Very nice campground, but not big-rig friendly. We saw one guy with a 40' 5th wheel try six times to get to his site before mastering it. Lots of hills, curves, and tight spaces, but if you can get in, it's worth it. Part of an old road used by Davy Crockett, James Bowie, Stephen F. Austin, Sam Houston, and others, can still be seen in the park. Spotless restrooms and showers.

We haven't been here for many years, and were apparently remembering it differently than it actually is. The sites were VERY small, tight, poor roads, with people running all over everyone else's site. In any event, this campground is more suited to tents, popups, and other small campers, and to younger folks with kids. If you're looking for fun with the kids, this would probably be the place for you, but if you're looking for peace and quiet, it isn't.

This is a nice park, but I had two problems with it which resulted in my low rating. First, I tried calling, repeatedly, for two days, just to make sure that they would have an open site. No one ever answered the phone, but instead they gave you a voice mail box in which to leave a message, stating that they would return the call. They never returned any of my calls. We finally decided to get off I-75 and actually drive to the park, hoping that they had a site available. They did, and in fact, there were only two other RV's there, so I don't know how they could have been too busy to answer the phone, or to return phone calls. Second, most parks restrict the camping areas to campers, and tell day users to keep out and utilize the day use areas only. Not here. Although there were only a total of three RV's sites in use, including mine, the camping area was packed with people using the sites for picnics, playing ball, using the playground, and driving around and around while blasting their stereos. In fact, two sites that I was interested in were being used by picnickers, so I had to pass them by. All in all, the park is nice, but is in need of new management to make it a bit more camper friendly.

We stayed here in area B, which is the only one with pull through sites. The sites were very hard to maneuver through, and often you didn't know if you were on a campsite, or still on the roadway. The sites themselves were very hilly, and it was almost impossible to level the rig. Water and electric hook-ups are a long way away, and we needed both an extension cord and a second water hose to make it work. The restrooms and bath house need to be torn down and replaced.

This is a nice park for a stopover, but contrary to its website, it does not have cable TV. It looks like it used to, but no longer. Also, the Wi-Fi only works if you are very near the office. Finally, and I found this to be very unusual, there was a charge to use the shower. I've paid a quarter at a few municipal parks, but this park charges $2.00 per person, which I found to be excessive. That adds an additional $4.00 per couple, per day, just to shower. Other than that, it was neat, clean, and the lady in the office was very accommodating.

This is a regular stop for us enroute south for the winter and back again. The owner couldn't be nicer, and makes sure that everything is spotless. The cable TV, WiFi, power, water, and sewer, are all handy and in good repair. The restrooms and showers are individual private rooms, and are spotless, as is the laundry, and there is an electronic keypad to gain entry to them. It's easy to get to from the expressway.
