Nice stop for 1 night. Small park on grass w/ full hook ups. Very helpful host. Park has access to a small lake attached to park. Off the highway about 15 minutes, very quiet. We are traveling w/ an active dog and plenty of area to walk him and let him play in the lake. Our site was fairly level, did not unhook. - Kayak54

Stayed here for one night. I can only echo what other reviews have said. The place is a bit out of the way and you may wonder where you are going but the campground is right on a lovely lake. The sites are spread out over the campground and our site had no neighbors at all! The campground roads are dirt and I would guess they could be a mess in the rain or dusty if there has been no rain. They were fine for us and our site was level and everything worked well. The Wifi was especially good. The owners are very friendly and will go out of their way to make your stay enjoyable. There are no picnic tables but, if you ask, they will bring you a table. They say they just don't want to mow around them. The office is the owner's unit and she brings all the paper work to you at your site. We stayed in a motor home and would come back. - Bud in Florida

Just made an overnight stop here. Sites are randomly spaced, no pavement. Road in is sand or mud if rainy. Owners are very friendly and hookups work well including wi-fi. Not much to draw you here unless looking for a long-term out of the way location. Our site was not real level but acceptable. - Grumpier99

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 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

We really enjoyed our to night stay in this lovely little gem of a spot. There are two small loops. The campground has sites that vary widely from very small sites to huge spacious ones. All but one are back in. The campground is located on a peninsula with the lake on three sides so you have this 'goes on forever' twisting turning drive in but it is well worth the drive. Our site was lovely, wide and easy in and out. Bathrooms were clean and showers had abundant hot water. There was a really nice playground for the kids. The campground hosts were both attentive and friendly but not intrusive. Electric and water hook ups at the sites were in like new condition. The road was not in as good shape and had some potholes and broken edges to the roadway. Many of the site have their own fishing piers. We really enjoyed a long long walk on the trails. The place is mixed evergreen cedars and deciduous trees. The only thing that bothered me is that it appears way over due for a controlled burn. Debris was waist deep in places off the trails and pine needle straw was often three inches thick under our feet. Give the layout with a single road in and out it could get very nasty in a forest fire. No surprise, all open fires were banned during our stay. - Judy Birchland

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

Out of the way on Highway 28. But no golf carts riding around all day. Had an issue with the 50 amp service but the camp host repaired right away. Nothing fancy just a nice place to get away from the hustle. - Obrenn73

We know to arrive & setup on a Monday or Tuesday in order to grab the best campsite or 1 of the best sites.
Normal camp site prices are $15 single & $20 double.
We are retired & use America the Beautiful Pass.
Campground will fill up on Friday.
Loop B has a nice rubberized playground for children.
Site 29 is a double site at the end of the B loop, extremely large & private surrounded by trees & an easy walk to the lake for fishing from a small pier or bank if you bring tall rubber boots.
On site 29 you will need to level your trailer tires 1 1/2" on the drivers side & to disconnect as the front will be 2 inches lower than the rear.
We lost service for 2 hours after a small storm due to a branch falling on power lines. Cleco did a very good job finding the problem & correcting it in a short time.
Electric box was good & well maintained.
Water pressure requires a reducer which is a common problem during an offseason week before a weekend.
Best bet is to bring a portable wheeled sewer container to take to the dump station as needed. Dump station is 1/2 mile distant.
This is a National Forest area so there is no accumulating & burning deadfalls from the forest. Bring your own bonfire wood.
Love the many walking & bicycle trails.
Do not expect any campsite to be perfectly level, there are no concrete pads but the camping area is solid, not even a motorhome will sink when it rains.
Safety is not a problem, we have camped at Kincaid over 20 times & have left for hours at a time to fish, boat across the lake to Tunks Cypress Inn restaurant or go into town. Never had any problems with thefts.
There is a live-in manager in both section A & section B & both are very nice but put up with zero problems such as loud all night parties, speeding, golf carts which are not street legal.
Small Garbage bins in front of every campsite & are picked up every day. - JSRFrench

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

Out in the middle of nowhere, but convenient to the highway and the RV sales lot next door. Easy access. Wi-Fi worked great. - The Hughes

The park sits just off of I49 on exit 94 and is gated. There are about 38 pull-through sites that could handle most RV's, with full hook-ups with both 30/50amp service. Each site has a concrete pad and concrete patio area. Although we didn't utilize them, they have a very nice and clean restroom/shower and laundry building. - Jude2016

We were on the road for 6.5 hrs. 5/5/18. Used Rvtripwizard for nearby RV campgrounds and made a call. Everything was handled within that phone call. We got our site, full hookups, it is a gated community right off the interstate. This is a wide open park right next to I-49; noise is OK. We were given a gate code once we gave our credit card info. Level spaces, clean, a great place to stay overnight. Near lots of stores and gas stations. No complaints!! Very nice woman I spoke with over the phone. - Fred Gagne

This park was very much a surprise. We pulled in and the owners came to us in a golf cart to check us in. We were one of two motorhomes there. You are surrounded by hayfields. No store or anything, however the peacefulness and quietness of the area was magnificent. Great One night stop over. - Cathy Roark

Small but very good RV park. Great for over night, or if staying a while in Alexandria, LA if you just want a place to stay. Pretty much what everyone else has stated: nice spacious sites some in shade, some not; gravel but nice, deep, solid gravel, not just a few handfuls thrown on the dirt; small facilities (single showers and necessaries per gender) but clean. Nice couple who have turned a piece of pasture into a going concern. Would certainly stay again if going this way. - the lowdog

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

Great park! Full hook up is very nice and this park has it. Very well kept, quite and clean. Wifi is not good; tried to get online many times but kept timing out and could never log on. Overall, this is a very good park to stay at. I have a 40 ft motor home and had no problems getting in or out. I would give this park a 10 if not for the Wifi issue. - DGremilion

Stayed in site 13 in a class A 36' motorhome for 2 nights. Plenty of space between sites, concrete pad was just wide enough for the rv, roads were blacktop but narrow, one washer and one dryer but were free so who can complain, no cable and no channels over the air. Zero road noise. - AlanJune

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

We love Indian Creek and have been camping here for years. We love the spacious spots and all the trees. A beautiful lake is in view of most spots. Quiet most of the time (weekends get busy with the lake activities). The staff is awesome and very helpful. The park is patrolled by local law enforcement and park staff are always making rounds. There is a beach area and hiking trails. A small town close by with a grocery store and Dollar store for items you need. A city (Alexandria) about 30 minutes away. Keep in mind pull-thrus here are divided into two sites. So, one half may be in use and making it difficult to get into your site (you may have to back in). - rbhaaland

Beautiful clean well kept up. Electricity and water at all sites which are concrete. Lake fishing, beaches to swim, nice playgrounds for the kids. Too much to add here, please check out their web site. Full stay must be paid upon your reservation. - Curney- Vicky Derouen

We enjoy staying here. We've stayed at several different sites throughout the years...some better than others and we have our favorites. WiFi seems to finally be fixed. They keep it much cleaner than it was a couple of years ago. They only give 10% discount for seniors. Bathrooms could use air conditioning. For the most part, it's a beautiful park. - Linda Bullock
