1 Park near Ruston, Louisiana
Jun 2015 - $25.00
We stayed here for an overnight and found the park to be very nice and the facilities adequate. Here are a few notes:
(1) Only 2 sites are concrete; the rest are asphalt, so bring your jack pads.
(2) The small lake and walking / biking trail was very nice. They also have a great playground.
(3) Reservations are only first come, first served. You pick your site when you arrive. We stayed in #15, which is the longest pull thru.
(4) Almost all sites will require some minor leveling. Bring your boards. Ours sloped 3" toward the passenger side.
(5) Some sewer connections, including ours, were uphill from the pad. The 50amp service and water were great, with plenty of pressure and stable power.
(6) I wouldn't bring more than a 40' rig to this park. There is a tight hill that twists. We took it slowly and had no problem, but had we been any longer, I would be leery.
(7) There is a good place to disconnect / re-connect your toad at the entrance. The road into the campground is a mile or so from the entrance.
(8) The park is very convenient to Ruston, only ~4 miles off the interstate and barely outside the city.
(9) They lock the gate at night, but they'll give you a gate code so you can get back in after dinner. (No worries!) We dealt with 2 park employees during our stay and both were super nice and helpful.
(10) The park internet is useless, but our Verizon Mifi worked fine.
Overall, this is a great stopping place for us, and we will be back. If we have time, we might stay 2 nights to spend more time exploring this very large and beautiful park. (Our rig is a 39' Holiday Rambler.) - dad2aprincess

Beautiful park, nice spaced sites. No cable, no satellite,but enough ota channels for overnight. Campground is in the middle of a grove of really tall trees. Friendly staff. - User3294

This was our 2nd stay at this park and we still have the opinion this is a great park to sit a few days and just enjoy the quietness and beauty of the lake. We were in site 27 (same as last time) and were able to position our portable satellite dish to get excellent reception. There are trails for hiking in addition to the concrete path around the lake. For those of you who geocache, there are caches within the park. Since we travel I-20 at least once a year, this will always be on our list of places to take a couple of days to just relax. Our only problem is our "couple of days" usually stretches into 4-6 days. - TN RVers
