Beautiful State of Louisiana campground with a lake for boating / fishing.
We stayed as a 2 trailer combo in adjoining sites next to the lake with walking access to the beach. Extremely popular in the summer & around holidays so phone ahead early as in on Monday morning 8am to make reservations using a credit card.
Best sites are #54, 56,57,58,59 but require leveling.
Paved pads are not always level, be sure to bring leveling pads.
No sewer hookup so bring your portable travel buddy sewer container to bring to the dumping station if your stay exceeds your grey water fill.
Beautiful clean State campground, this is not a resort. Sites have a picnic table. because this is a woodland camping area, the area immediately around the site is never level.
Staff is incredibly friendly & helpful unless you decide to not follow the rules.
There are 2 beaches, 1 is for campers only. Boat launch for using the lake & is an extremely popular spot during weekends in the summer. - JSRFrench
I'm a local; we live wiithin 5 miles of Indian Creek. We LOVE it here and I hate to give it good reviews for fear of attracting people to it. :) We have had so many good times here. We usually get a group of us and we all bring our boats, etc. My kids go to the nearby school and during the summer, all of their friends are here too. So it is very much a local hangout, but don't worry, we are friendly. We usually get here on Wednesday or Thursday to get a good spot. We are friendly, though, so feel free to introduce yourself. We usually run trout lines at dusk and almost always catch a few. I have so many beautiful photos that I get made into canvas prints and hang in my house. As I wax romantic about Indian Creek, you should know not all spots are level and the amenities probably leave some to be desired, but the overall feel of the place (woods and lake) is so incredibly peaceful and relaxing that it is really easy to overlook any dings. There is a playground for the kids and as others have mentioned, two small beaches for swimming (the water is usually very clear). Summer gets super-busy and I actually prefer camping here in cooler weather, as there are fewer people. The Kisatchie National Forest is across the highway (remnants of old Camp Claiborne nearby), the fish hatchery gives tours and be sure to check out the Southern Forest Heritage Museum-- just a cool mostly outdoor site. Most of the plant nurseries in Forest Hill sell to the public. There is a good Mexican restaurant in Forest Hill named Mi Tierra and the Catholic Church in Woodworth (Mary Mother of Jesus) does a dine in, take out dinner on the first Monday of the month for about $7.00 a plate. (Everything is delicious). Alexandria isn't fashionable and yes, the layout is a train wreck, the shopping is mostly poor, but Woodworth is a beautiful place that has a town population of about 1200. It is the speed trap capital of Louisiana, with 62% of its income coming from speeding tickets. So watch your speed! Woodworth is a real hidden gem in Louisiana. - Rvparkmama
We arrived here just before 4pm. The gate was closed and there was a sign that said "Only Primitive Campsites Available". We turned to leave and a nice lady came out with a campground map and asked us how many nights we wanted to stay. We told her only 1. With this she let us in and there were plenty of sites available. Evidently, the staff is gearing up for the Memorial Day weekend. If you come in after the office is closed, drive around (to the left) of the office building. Don't camp in the sites that they state that are paid for. Our dog enjoyed a nice swim in the lake. Our pad was concrete and level (somewhat). We would definitely come here again - quite and beautiful. - msunnergren
