This is a new park located outside Bunkie, Louisiana. The park is located in the country making it very quiet, except for an occasional big rig truck on the nearby highway. The park has a water park for kids and a zip line challenge course for older kids and adults. There are three pools, two hot tubs and a covered patio. The resort has a grill service offering burgers and sandwiches, a small store, and an outside theater. All sites are on gravel with the main roads paved. There are two fishing ponds. A nearby golf course is available for 9 or 18 hole golf at a minimal cost. One concern I had was the showers. The valve to turn the water on must be pushed to allow water to come out. You cannot use both hands to wash your hair or body while the water is on. Also, you cannot regulate water temperature with these type valves. The lack of cable TV and internet is also a negative. At a cost of $45 or $50 per night, this charge is a little excessive without these amenities. There are no mature trees to offer shade for the sites. There is also no grass at the sites. The picnic tables are metal making them impossible to use on hot summer days. The staff is very friendly. There are very few pull through sites for big rigs pulling a vehicle. - chevytrkr

We stayed here 2 nights. Very nice campground. Concrete pads, utilities worked great. WIFI was good until evening when more people were using it. We were in site 200 and it was very level. Easy to get satellite coverage. We'd definitely stay here again. There isn't much to do around Marksville, so can't imagine staying here for more than a night or 2. - jacknpeg

I hereby state that my wife & I stayed for 4 days at Paragon Casino RV Resort. The Park was very clean with all concrete roads and pads. We were there with 14 other couples. - Hank Chase

This is a good value for a pretty standard RV resort. It gets busy on the weekends, but empties out during the week. Most people are probably there for the casino. My only complaint is the restrooms could have used 2 cleanings a day on weekends instead of just the usual one. I would stay here again. - Rover Travels

Far from highway--a bit rough with narrow roads and hanging trees for our 35 ft class A. Pretty trees, very narrow asphalt pads but level. Water standing on ground so beware. Place full of mosquitos. Was deserted and if the office staff is as rude to everyone as to us, I can see why. Website says $22--No, it is $28 1st night THEN $22. They have ready excuses not to honor America 50 pass so forget that. We won't be back as we don't like to pay money for rudeness. - Sharon J

There are two campgrounds here. This review is for the South campground. This is a nice park, but the shower room was pretty nasty. Really old and uninviting and a really long walk from most campsites. There was a reasonable amount of space between most sites and most seemed to be long enough to easily accommodate big rigs, but some of the roads around the loops were very steep and narrow. Could be a problem for some big rigs. And a fair number of them slope really steeply away from the road. I can't imagine ever being able to get level front to back on them. The grounds were fairly clean, but there was a bit of trash around. At $22 for electric and water PLUS a ripoff $6 "transaction fee", I think it's a bit overpriced for a public campground. It's by a lake, but the South campground is not on the lake and there is no view of it. Maybe the North campground is better, but we didn't drive up to see it. It's several miles from the south camp. They do give 50% senior pass discount, but you still get nailed with the $6 handling fee. I'm not aware of any other options in the immediate area, so this is fine for an overnight. - Pdxjoanne

Rate above does not include the silly $6 reservation fee. You also can not move or transfer sites until AFTER you have checked in.
We stayed in the south camp ground and had sites 2 through 4. The entire south campground is more geared for tents as the water / electric connections are either really far back or on the wrong side. We managed to get our travel trailer on site 3 with no problems and we had tents on 2 and 4. The restroom by the dump stations at south campground was in need of repairs, as the floor stayed wet. It also didn't help some local kids decided to discharge a fire extinguisher in the restroom. The other two restrooms in the south campground had showers. Wife said the women's showers were in stalls. The men's were both group showers which we said no thanks. Overall, the entire south campground is very un-level and backing into some sites would be a challenge. When we went to leave there are two dump stations at the south campground, for some reason everyone insisted on stopping at the first one and not pulling up to the second one, this caused a long traffic back out just to get out of the camp ground.
We did go and check out the north camp ground, it is geared all to RV's. Some of those sites are VERY close together there were 4 we saw that were completely unusable due to being in disrepair. There were two more dump stations in the north camp ground as well. We did not visit the restrooms/showers to inspect them but we heard they are much nicer.
Bring A LOT of mosquito repellent we have never had this many bug bits after a weekend of camping. Camp hosts were friendly and nice and the park has a lot to offer. Warning the pool is closed due to state budget issues but the water play ground is open. - Nizzy
