Can't beat free

The Hunter Camp is situated just off range road. You're surrounded by wilderness. The only amenities are a vault toilet. Fort Polk is close enough for supplies, check your gate schedules. Marines were utilizing the ranges in the area, and a couple officers came though the hunter camp just exploring.

Theres a hiking trail near by, stating no motorized vehicles, but you can mountain bike, hike and ride horses. No fishing near by unless you drive to the blue hole complex further down range road.

Apparently they're allowing logging around the camp, so do a check before you go set up.

Sitenone marked.

Simple basic camping

My wife and I camped here just before memorial day and had the entire campsite to ourselves. I imagine during hunting season this camp is quite busy, however we found it very peaceful in the off months. But hey, it’s free camping. Because of its location so deep in the woods mosquitoes, horseflies, and yellow flies were in abundance. Using a therma cell was perfect at keeping them at bay. There is a composting toilet in the middle of the campground that was very clean as it has had very little use.

Pack it in, pack it out, and free

Inside the Kisatchie National Forest, Calcasieu District, Vernon Unit. 2 loops of dispersed camping, grounds not well kept, vault toilet. There is no water and signs say pack in and pack out but there was a trash bin. Very basic place to pitch a tent and explore the area around.
