Friendly, accommodating staff and the park is well maintained...real gem. All roads and sites are asphalt and level, but narrow making it a challenge in a big rig. Lots of space between sites. Some shade, but grass everywhere. Good voltage, water pressure and wifi through out. All amenities and areas were clean. We will add this park to our return list. We camped at Colfax Recreation Area RV Park & Campground in a Motorhome.

Exceptionally clean, extremely nice helpful employees.

Easy access from roads & easy to back into level paved spaces.

Hookups are conveniently located, 30/50 amp, 110 outlet, sewer & water on every space.

Each space has a personal concrete pad complete with a cement table with 2 benches. Small firepit & mounted barbecue.

Young trees provide a small amount of shade.

Beside the river & has available boat launch plus boat berths.

Bathroom & shower facility which we did not use & a nice well maintained children's playground with a large shaded canopy area with benches for the adults to supervise the kids.

Excellent value with the only drawback being limited spaces (25) although an enlargement planned but all spaces are sun fronted.

We carry tarps & rope to stretch & provide a sunscreen.

Reservations well advised during peak camping times & weekends. We camped at Colfax Recreation Area RV Park & Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Closest shopping area for forgotten items is in Colfax 2 miles distant.

Excellent place to bring a boat, has a nice wharf.

Wi-Fi is included bring your IPad.

Good Local TV reception covers all the major over air networks.

A portable canopy for shade is a must, your camper awning is facing the sun.

This is a real gem of a park operated by the Red River Water Commission. The park is about 12 years old and is in excellent shape. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Usually campground Wi-Fi systems don't work too well; this free setup worked like a champ. The showers were clean and the bathhouse has a small laundry room with a free washer and dryer. If interested, you can walk out to Lock and Dam #3 Control House, knock on the door and the friendly folks inside will give you a tour of the local control room. $32 is perhaps a bit on the high side, but the park does honor the Golden Age Pass for half-price; $16 is a great deal for a campground of this caliber. It's a popular spot so reservations are recommended. We camped at Colfax Recreation Area RV Park & Campground in a Motorhome.

We called ahead and made reservations based on previous reviews, and we were very pleased. Courteous staff, clean park/restrooms/showers, and like-new facilities including lighted boat ramp and slips, and fish cleaning station. We stayed for a month and it suited us just fine, but there is only 1 place to eat or buy groceries in Colfax and you'll have to go to Alexandria if you want more selection (30 minutes away). The trees are not mature, so don't plan on shade in the summer. We will definitely stay here again! We camped at Colfax Recreation Area RV Park & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Excellent park. Long, level concrete sites, good hook ups, nicely landscaped, and just about the friendliest folks we've ever met running the park. No cable TV but good antenna reception. Wi fi ok. Lots of trails for walking and biking. Very nice playground for young children, but teens might be bored unless they like to fish. There is even a new free washer dryer for campers to use. Grocery store in town is nice but there is only one cafe in town, and it's not open for breakfast. Only down side was a terrible ant problem, which the park was spraying for every day we were there, but we did leave with an infestation in our RV. We loved the park and will definitely be back.

Ditto what everyone said before me. This was a great stay for us. We are big on COE parks and this park is equal if not better. The grounds were clean and manicured very well. The restrooms were spotless and the heaters in the men's room were very warm for a December evening. This is a very well planned and constructed park. You will not be disappointed. The park attendant made a special trip to our site to bring a Park and Red River Rec area brochure. Nice walk down to the COE office at the Red River Lock and Dam. Travelers note: DO NOT take Louisiana Highway 8 between Leesville and IH49 Exit 103. This road is not an RV friendly route. Go through Alexandria or take another route. Avoid La. 8.

Wow, what an awesome find in the middle of nowhere! Needed a place to stay while traveling on Highway 49. Was a little concerned that this park was 11 miles from the highway, but WOW! it was totally worth it! This is a state run camp and was totally clean and professionally run. Sites had at least 100' of space between them! BIg RIG FRIENDLY! Lawns were maintained very well. Paved driveways and pads. Excellent Wi-Fi. Excellent TV reception. Super clean restrooms and laundry room. The manager was very friendly and wanted to be completely sure we enjoyed our stay. I would have given it a 10+ if it had a pool, but other than that it was PERFECT! A gem of a find! We camped at Colfax Recreation Area RV Park & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a gem of a place, well maintained and set in lovely landscaped grounds, overlooking the Red River, with lots of trees. Very quiet, even on weekends, with a friendly and helpful staff. Wide level sites, lots of space between RV's, clean restrooms, picnic table on a concrete pad, fire ring, grill, only 25 sites, all 10x65 and back in, full hook up. This is not the place to be if you want shops and restaurants etc. This is a place to chill out, and relax. There is a small grocery store in town. No WiFi signal at our site, other than that this place is a 10/10. We would stay here again. We camped at Colfax Recreation Area RV Park & Campground in a Travel Trailer.

This park is still a very "young" RV park. The trees are still rather small, but growing very nicely. The Bathrooms were immaculate and warm, being that it was very cool the weekend we were here. There are only 25 sites here, which is nice because you are not on top of each other. Wi-Fi was slow, the playground is really nice for young children and very peaceful. A little off the beaten path, but worth it. The small town of Colfax is pretty much dried up other than a good grocery store and Dollar General. The park is gated and the employees were top-notch!

Great RV park. Well maintained, lots of grass, pads are paved, basically level, with good hook ups. Quiet! Location is a bit out of the way, but worth the extra time. Will definitely be back. Plenty of room for a 40 M/H and a towed. Shade trees will be an added plus in years to come. We camped at Colfax Recreation Area RV Park & Campground in a Motorhome.

This park is great. The only thing is that it is a ways from things you want to see and do but I don't hold that against them. Level sites, full hookups, 50 amp, free washer and dryer, etc. Staff is very friendly and helpful. If you are going to spend any time in the Alexandria or Natchitoches area this is the place to stay without a doubt. Plenty of room between the sites. We will stay here again.

Though we stayed here only one night, I would definitely recommend this RV campground. Everyone was so very helpful, kind, and knowledgeable. Sites are level and very spacious as well as beautifully maintained. Laundromat was awesome. Would stay here again anytime on our way east.

Driving to the Colfax Corp park makes you wonder, you are so far in the boondocks. Then you see the park, what a surprise! Easy back in sites, each one large and paved with HUGE grassy areas all around, a nice concrete pad, and all the hookups! Free Wi-Fi, free showers, free laundry. Great place to stay for a few days to relax (and fish, if that is your thing) but bring your own night life, it's way in the country. We camped at Colfax Recreation Area RV Park & Campground in a Motorhome.
