11 Parks near Colfax, Louisiana
Aug 2016 - $16.00
This is a Federally managed facility, so the America the Beautiful Pass gets you 50% off the daily rate. It took the really nice guy on duty forever to get us checked in, but no big deal. They weren't crowded at all, maybe 10% full, probably because of the heat. The grounds were lush and very well maintained.
This site is at a dam on the Red River, so there is a boat launch and a pier for fishing. LOTS of room for the kids and dogs to run, to throw the frisbee, etc. The restrooms and showers were in good shape and clean. There are some tent sites but I recall seeing mostly back-ins. The included WiFi worked well.
Our site was shady with a nice picnic table, grill, fire ring, and a lantern pole (bring your own lantern). If the weather hadn't been so hot, we could have stayed a few days here. The only drawback is that the Red River runs between Colfax and I-49, so it's a little out of the way, but well worth the drive. - SLOman

I consider this a hidden gem. Located about 11 miles off the freeway, on the bank of the Red River, near one of its dams and locks. Very clean, and the manager stayed over to check us in. - DIckfromSD

This is a Corps of Engineers park right on the Red River about 40 minutes south of Natchitoches, LA. It is pristinely manicured with huge sites. The restrooms and showers are spotless. Satellite reception is easy as there aren't many large trees blocking the southern sky. We used our Golden Age Pass so we paid $17.50 per night. - golfkitty

This will be perfect as a base or overnight although I do think it's a little expensive. Gated facility which is great, concrete level sited and spotlessly clean but NO trees. No shade is why I gave it 9 instead of 10. - csbunz123

This was a very small park without a lot of frills. It is occupied mostly by workers who were very friendly. It was very neat and clean with level concrete pads. The restrooms/showers and laundromat were immaculate. - Fletcher15

Came here based on web site description and pictures which depicted a pretty environment and a new, clean park. Arrived to find park located in a field in an industrial area - not a single tree. There is absolutely nobody manning the premises at any time. Camp facilities are as advertised (ie. water, sewer, power, pads etc) but this is actually a work camp, inhabited almost 100% by workers. The environment was not at all welcoming for vacationers so decided to leave before even hooking up. Called for a refund (nobody on site) for the week we had paid and were bluntly refused even when we offered to pay a portion. Not impressed! - Kevin Miles

This campground has potential. It is a bit older and a lot of the sites can be a little tight to get into. They have recently installed sewer connections at some of the sites in one area and are working on renovating a lot of the campground. The pads are a little narrow and a lot of them are built up so there is a bit of a drop off when you step off the last step of your RV. If staying here you might would want to pass through the campground to find a spot that doesn't have that drop off. There are a lot that are fine. There are some spectacular views of the lake from many of the sites. Spanish moss hanging from the trees gives an added atmosphere to the campgrounds. The showers and rest rooms we entered were in need of some work but we very rarely use those facilities so was not an issue for us. The only con for us was the lack of security and the ability for anyone to enter this park at all hours and is why I give it such a low rating. I hope our unfortunate experience with this aspect was unique and not the norm for this quaint campground but it will cause us to look elsewhere when camping in this area. - Open Ranger

Nothing to do here but swim in the lake. Very dirty. I did not enjoy my stay here at all. - dollfacedbaby1

Nice quiet park. Set in the hills above a nice lake. Most sites are shaded. Pretty good size lake for bass fishing. We would stay here again in a heartbeat. Bring your supplies, though, nearest store is about 20 minutes away. - hstutes

This place truly is a hidden treasure! The campground is located on Lake Cotile and is very beautiful and peaceful. It's not too far off I-49. The owners' son did an outstanding job (after dark) of directing us onto the concrete pad, where we had full hookups and reliable 50 amp service. We had a slide issue and the owner came over and spent a couple hours helping us diagnose. Anything this campground lacks in amenities, is more than offset by the friendly, caring owners. - dad2aprincess

Paid for full amenities. The park location was great, fields of rolled hay, only 5 miles to our destination CenLa Rv center for warranty work. The restroom was closed for vandalism so we don't even know if they had a shower. The wifi (free) didn't work they said probably bad weather in vicinity but it only rained. The location was beautiful but cost should have reflected the lack of amenities. The host were young and only 3 years of ownership but very friendly. - Janiceanddennis

This is a great park. It is very quiet and peaceful. The sites are long enough for big rigs and plenty of space between each site. Individual restroom/showers are adequate and clean. I would give this park a 10 if it had more amenities but for what it has it is a 10. Since opening in September of 2012 the owners are working hard to improve and maintain the park. The office is in a mobile home adjacent to the park. We camped here for a week. We would definitely come back again. - Young at Heart

A great RV park in the middle of a wonderful area. This park is brand new (maybe a year old). Owners are very nice young couple. The park is next to a huge green field with lots of birds. Very nice and peaceful setting. Pads are level crushed gravel. Restrooms are very clean. We were here 1 week, and will most definitely stay here again. - Deck & Margot

This place is truly a dump. I am glad to hear that it is no longer a KOA. It was thrown out of the system because it is so bad. - campingrichard

I used map quest to locate this park and the directions took us about 13 miles south of their location. It was late evening and the manager was very happy to give us the correct location and guide us in. The park is small with many full timers in residence who are friendly. The sites are gravel and not level. They have a small laundry room. No shower and bathroom facilities. We stayed a week and have been back for overnights a couple times. There are small IGA's nearby, but major shopping is several miles away. If your looking for a quiet, friendly place just to get away, this is it. Also if you like cocktail hour, bring your own as this is another dry county. - kandid61

We came to area to attend a funeral and went to 5 RV parks before finding Rolling Hills. This park is well managed, clean, spacious, and has free cable TV. No other park in the area had cable TV, nor did they feel safe. The manager and staff were so nice and helpful. Don't waste your time with other parks in the Alexandria area. - acampingwego

We knew coming in that this place wasn't a "resort" by any stretch, but our fairly low expectations were not even met. We were just looking for a decent place to park for a few nights while visiting family in the area. Most of the park is occupied by transient workers living out of their trailers or rental units on the property, with only a couple of spaces for over nighters. Sites are gravel and close together with a narrow strip of grass between. No tables, fire pits, or shade. Our site had low water pressure (about 20 psi) and several active ant mounds on the gravel pad. The manager leveled the mound right outside our door and sprayed it with something, but they just resurfaced elsewhere. A pretty miserable place, fortunately we didn't spend much time there except to sleep. We won't be staying here again. - gtfiver

Very nice campgrounds located around the Kincaid Lake forest area. Advisable to scout the area & secure a prime location early. 1st come 1st serve.
Very nice boat launch with a beach, picnic, barbecue area with a limited number of shaded canopy areas. The bathrooms at the boat dock are large & the lake beach areas are large.
Be advised numerous campsites are difficult to back a large rig, very limited number of pull thru sites, many require leveling the trailer & no sewer hookups.
Bathroom shower facilities within the campground are older, no security as this is a public facility. - JSRFrench

This is a beautiful park that is very well maintained. The campsites have very long pads and are quite spacious. At the rear of each site, they had poured small gravel which made a really nice area to sit behind your camper. There was a grill, patio table, and fire ring at each site. The water had two faucets, one for your hose and another in case you needed it for something else so you don't have to unhook your hose. There was an excellent playground for children, very well maintained with what I think was a floor of ground rubber which made a very soft floor in case of falls. The bathrooms and showers were very clean, air conditioned, completely updated. Beautiful lake and paved roads throughout. Prices are $15 and $20 and they honor the America the Beautiful Discount card. - Travellite14

Campground run by the State of Louisiana Rapides Parrish Police Jury.
Stayed in the older section in the double space at the far end #12.
Excellent walking trails, fair small fishing pier down a hill.
Electric & water only but dumping station is on the way out or use a portable for extended stays.
Each section has a live-in Manager that cleans showers & rest rooms.
There is a boat launch 1/4 mile away, a lake beach swimming area & this is a forested type campground not a resort.
Because it is within a National Forest - you must bring in any bonfire wood & it is illegal to gather wood to burn in the provided fire ring.
No Wi-Fi available or cable TV - older State Campground. - JSRFrench

Valentine Lake campground, another outstanding NFS park! Had a site backed right up to the lake; shady, peaceful. - mockturtle

This site is a bit off the main road on a nice lake with swim beaches and hiking trails all over the place. The sites are not all that level but we got a nice flat one. The "single" sites are all a bit tight and if you have slides on both sides you may want to go into one of their double sites and pay the extra $5. This is a National FS CG and we had the old farts card and only paid $7.50. I found out as we were leaving that they want you to pay $9/night. The bath rooms were clean and Verizon Wi-Fi worked very, very slowly. For being out in the woods you could hear a lot of distant car, plane, train, and boat noise. Nothing too disturbing, but it was always there. They have a new play ground for the kids. Lots of hiking/biking trails. All and all a nice CG. Paved roads and pads. - pumper9x9

This is a new RV park. It is very clean and neat. There are restrooms and showers, but nothing else. The hook-ups were good and the sites were very wide and easy to access. Very quiet. Would stay here again if in the area. - RV Lover

3 parking spots behind the Best Western. Okay for overnight stay. Water and 30 Amp (no 50). Walk to restaurants . You can use the pool and other facilities. Complimentary breakfast. All utilities will be at the rear. If parking lot is empty, no problem backing in. They do not accept reservations, so call ahead. - texpilot
