If not for the noise of the sawmill next door, this would be a 10. Charming host and country setting, quiet weekends. - Roadkraut

Older, smaller, well-maintained campground. Easy access from I-49. Grassy, flat sites. New picnic tables, no fire ring. Enjoyed our overnight stay very much. Quiet on a January weeknight. Sawmill across the road, stopped working at 3:00, but starting at 6:00AM. - ahh-scapers

Very nice little campground easily accessed from I-49. The sites are level. Interior roads are narrow, gravel and dirt. Sites are gravel and grass. There's a pretty catch-and-release lake on the grounds. Great place to just kick back and relax.
The laundry has 2 washers ($1.25) and 2 dryers ($1.25). There are very friendly dogs that roam freely through the campground. The dogs aren't a problem, but no one picks up after they poop. - mrpeepers

Easy on and off Highway 6, some road noise, but did not bother us. 6 miles to Many, 5 miles to Robeline, 20 miles to Natchitoches. Good free Wi-Fi. Good utilities. Large rock sites and lot. Very nice laundry. Water is brown and very soft, but no sediment, no staining, tastes good. Playground for children. Nearby pond for fishing. No problem with Verizon signal for phone or MiFi. Sites are fairly close, but few campers so we had plenty room. Only downside is, no dumpster. You must call for info, rates, etc., then put money in slot in office door. Envelopes are available. This was very handy for us to visit in area. - User1392

Rough interior roads, no level sites. Soft ground at sites, jacks sunk in with no ground support, took an hour to dig out. Large sites. Nice people. 5 miles from town. Would not stay here again. - runamuka

"Campground" is stretching it. This is a field cleared out of the woods with electric/water/sewer connections. There's wi-fi, but it's VERY slow and spotty. The "site" was grass & dirt, with a little gravel thrown in, but I had to use boards under the levelers so they wouldn't sink into the ground. And the whole place is unlevel; my front wheels are off the ground. "Streets" are graveled paths worn into the ground. From the time you turn off of the highway the gravel road is bumpy, preparing you for the campground "streets". I stayed here because it's the least expensive, believe it or not, of all the campgrounds in the Natchitoches area. It will do as a base because I don't use campground amenities except laundry. - rv1guy2cats

A relatively new park trying to get established. A nice, very quiet place in the country about 5 miles north of Natchitoches. Good utilities. Turn in on a narrow dirt road with low hanging limbs; they will brush the top of a motorhome. Entrance to park is narrow and very rough, needs grading badly. The entire park is very rough and unlevel, but after trying two sites, we were able to level. The office is not manned, but calling one of the 4 numbers will get someone there by late afternoon to check you in. Friendly, nice people. No issues other than ants; they came home with us. Gravel and tree trimming will make a huge difference. Considering the choices around Natchitoches, it's one of the top 2. - windyridge

Alright for overnight. Pad not level, required unhooking to level for night. Hookups at front requiring double hoses. Road up the hill rather interesting, glad we did not meet oncoming traffic. Owner not on site, friendly on phone. Overpriced for what it is. Most sites seemed to be long term. - pwdorris

Nice atmosphere, friendly people, clean grounds. Easy access to town. Watch carefully for the sign on the highway, it's a little hard to see. Enjoyed our stay and would go back. - D Autrey

Very laid back, quiet park. The owner does not stay on part but responds well if needed. I would have given a better rating but the road getting into the the park could be intimidating to inexperienced drivers. - MikeandNancy

There is very little choice of campgrounds in the area. We were traveling through the area and needed a place for the night. Getting into the campground was somewhat difficult due to the access road. The park was behind a truck stop and it was noisy all night from the diesel engines. We later learned that access could be made through the truck stop and that is how we left the park. The park itself was filled with mostly long term residents. The restrooms were clean and accessible with a pass code. (That we obtained by returning to the office, only to learn that it was posted on a white board outside the office door.) Not much security. It was easy to navigate around the park but the sites were not well-marked. The power pedestal was questionable as the door was not well-secured. Water pressure changed as more campers arrived and hooked up. Would not return. - grandma0942

This campground has two locations. The office is at Campground 1. We camped at Campground 2 located behind a commercial building on a busy highway. The single restroom and laundry room are in this building. The location, on the shore of Lake Sibley, is beautiful. It is disappointing the quality of the campground does not match the location. Poorly defined sites with hookups randomly scattered about on a dirt and gravel lot. Piles of trash here and there and a couple of dilapidated structures containing trash and junk. There was also several long term tenants with equipment, etc. stacked outside their RV's. We were here during the Natchitoches Christmas Festival so the campground was full. Because the sites are so disorderly, people arriving first parked however their rig best fit making it difficult for the later arrivals to navigate - a couple of large rigs gave up and went elsewhere. After registering online, we received no confirmation of having a particular site assigned nor directions. When we arrived, there was no one in the office and it took multiple calls to reach anyone. When we did, the person did not have access to the registration information and told us to take a certain site only to later find this had been given to someone else. In short, this is a junky, poorly managed campground. We will go somewhere else if ever in Natchitoches again. - judb

Pulled in here early on a Friday afternoon to spend a couple of days as there isn't much to choose from in the area. The park is easy to get to & from I-49. After climbing up the steep but short hill off the main road, discovered the entire campground was full.
The park is behind a truck stop. It is very small and was built on a slight slope so leveling might be an issue depending on your RV's ability to level.
The interior road is gravel. The sites are a mixture of pull throughs & back ins. The pull throughs are in the middle with the back-ins along the outer edge. There appeared to be some long term residents. There is a tree line along the outer edge of the park so satellite reception might be impacted. The sites in the center appeared to have a better line of sight to the sky for satellite reception.
Office is only open from about 3:30 to 5 so any contact with staff outside of those hours is by phone. Make reservations if you want to stay here. Or you can contact the Chamber of Commerce for a listing of other RV parks in the area. - bsb814

We almost didn't stay here because of the other reviewer's post. I'm so glad we did. After a hot day, the shade was a blessed relief. It's well set back off a quiet road, just a few miles out of town. The park is well looked after, spotless restrooms. We didn't find the driveway to be all that steep. I called the number on the office door, left a message, and they called me back right away. There aren't a lot of activities but that wasn't something we were looking for. - ivansmom

Way OVERPRICED. We camped in a 30 ft fifth wheel. No one at the office the entire stay and would not be. Told to put the check in the mail slot in the door. Horrible entry road up a steep hill. Wifi, electric worked but 30 amp breaker kicked off with hair dryer. Grass sites, close together most with no table or fire ring. Bathrooms okay but not very clean. Pets were allowed but not outside unless on leash with owner, not tied out when you were inside trailer. There has to be a better place to stay in the area. Will not be back, worth about $10-20. Do not try this in a bigrig or large motorhome you may not be able to negotiate the dirt road and no adequate way to turn around within the location. - YNP Doc

Not sure resort is the word I would use to describe this place, but it's a nice enough campground regardless. Very woodsy with plenty of space between sites, it's well laid out and easy to navigate. Beware that you're in a forest, so trees may likely block satellite reception. We stayed here one night while I transit to Key West and found that it's a bit off the beaten path for an overnight ear. Still, if I were local I probably would enjoy this as a weekend getaway. - ajmurray

Very clean if you can get a water front slot get it. Has a nice beach and slips to house your boat over night. Also it has accommodating boat launch and very nice facilities. - bigredcherokee

We like to visit here to get away. The lake is nice and the beach is also nice. The full hookup sites tend to stay full but the dump station allows two trailers to dump at the same time. We have never had to wait long to clean out our holding tanks when it was time to leave. We actually met some really nice people while cleaning out the holding tanks who pointed us to a nice campground on another lake. There is also a nice general store on the premises that serves some really great lunches during the busy season. The trailer sites are concrete and most are fairly level. There is plenty of shade but it makes it difficult to get a satellite signal and TV reception. I have been able to get satellite by using a portable dish and have actually shared my portable dish with the neighbor who had a motor home with the dish on top and couldn't get reception. Cell reception is also poor with both Verizon and AT&T but we were able to use a cell booster to get one. I would highly recommend this campground. Oh yeah, make sure you visit Red River Drug Store and also Nichols Sporting Goods in Coushatta. They have some really unique goods we found making this area really fun for us to visit. - Open Ranger

We stayed here for 2 nights to visit the area as there isn't much to choose from.
The park is easy to get to & from I-49 but it is several miles from the Interstate in town.
The park is very small. It is behind a business. The park's office is located at the other park (Nakatosh Campground #1) so you have to go there during the business hours if you want to pay by credit card.
The interior road is gravel. The road is in poor condition and doesn't show signs of being cared for.
The sites are a mixture of pull throughs & back ins. The pull through sites were not long enough for our 40' MH with the toad. All of the sites have some type of slope. They are in poor condition showing signs of ruts and VERY questionable utility connections. The hook ups appear to have been added on over time with fuses rather than breakers, exposed wires and broken fixtures. The electrical connections were different at each site so we had to hunt for an open site with a 50 AMP connection plug. There were no other amenities at the sites.
Our electrical system started malfunctioning. The refrigerator was the first appliance to show a problem followed by the inverter. It seemed to occur when more guests hooked up to the park's electrical system. As soon as we arrived at a newer park with better utility connections, the problem was corrected.
It seemed that about half of the sites where occupied by long term residents.
There was only a line of trees along the Western side of the park to interfere with satellite reception.
Surprisingly the WiFi connection was good but it required a password.
There wasn't a fenced pet area. There wasn't sufficient space to walk dogs along the park's roads but there was a grassy area between the park and the adjacent restaurant's parking lot. There were no bag dispensers or receptacles around the park to pick up waste.
There was a nearby dumpster to throw away your garbage.
The restroom/showers or laundry room were located in the back of the building that housed another business. They required an access code to enter.
For being in a hazardous/severe weather area, there was no underground storm shelter and none of the buildings were designated as shelters.
Would never stay here again! - bsb814

The park was nice and very quiet. It has 2 fishing areas, swimming area and a kids playground. There was quite a bit of boat traffic with the boat launch but noise was not an issue even with us being set up right on the water. Sites were paved and fairly level but water and electrical hookups were far off from the pad. We barely had enough water hose to make the connection so an extra hose would be helpful. The bathrooms were clean but need some upgrading especially in the showers. The lights were burnt along the jetty but the Pier lights worked fine. We caught a few fish but mainly Catfish. We will stay again soon. - Rnaogea

My family and I stayed at this park for two months while we moved. It is a beautiful park that is set up really well. The sites have full hookups. They are paved and level. The lake, pier, and beach are great. There is a playground and fish cleaning station. The staff is friendly. The only reason that I give this campground a 9 is because the site we had was on a hill and mud washed over our pad during a hard rain. - The Dowdy's

We have stayed at this park several times and each time it has been very enjoyable. Looking forward to the next visit. Highly recommended. - JBarker

PROs: Waterfront sites only a few feet from the bulk headed lake. Beautiful views. Slab level and wide. Looks like the park had some strong investment in infrastructure at one time, with concrete parking, boat docks, a nice long fishing pier, boat ramp, club house etc. A couple of covered sites but they were rented to long term tenants. CONs: A whole list. At the core is that there is little maintenance. Whole place has a run down feel to it. Like it was once really nice but now is badly run down. - Grass was mowed but not edged so buildings had 4 ft high weeds growing around them. Playground equipment had tall weeds around it. - Broken beer bottle in breeze way between restrooms that remained during our 3 day visit. Which means the restrooms were not cleaned. - Sewer connection at our site had a broken cap so we could not screw in hose. Looked broken for a long time. So we smelled the sewer when wind was right. - We arrived at 5pm, office closed at 4pm. There was no arrival packet so we had to call the after hours number and wait for someone to show up to open office and tell us site number. There was no map, no instructions about trash or amenities, nothing but a site number. End of fishing pier had some sort of adjustable platform that was broken off and floating in water for a long time. There are no pet cleanup stations. Had to find dumpster on our own, no trash pickup. No laundry that we could find. Had we found a review of the place earlier we would have found a different RV park on the lake. - Robin G Grimes
