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

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 are 2 campgrounds in the area, one is right off of Rt 49 and Magnolia Hill is 2 miles down the road. We choose this one to avoid the hwy noise and it didn't disappoint. The road is gravel, tight and windy and perhaps not the best road for big rig drivers without a lot of experience. But it is doable. The camp site is perched atop a mountain and very peaceful. There were only a few people there and I assume they were living there. The owner was friendly, it was an easy in and out for a quick visit. The nearby town is Natchitoches, the oldest town in LA. Very quaint, worth the visit. - Jones714

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

As others have stated, this is a "bare bones" park. We were told we could park in any of the available spaces and spent quite a bit of time looking at electrical sockets before we found one that was not broken. You also need to be aware that it is next to a truck stop and we found that they do run their engines constantly even at midnight. One major issue was that we exited through the truck stop driveway (which is connected to the park) and scrapped our front end which did cause some serious damage to our coach -- so you need to be careful when you leave. And when you are here DON'T MISS downtown Natchitoches. It is an amazing city! It makes the stay in this place worth the 5 points I gave it. - Bob Stokesbary

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

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
