Worst WMA Land Ever Visited

This WMA land is the worst that I have ever stayed at. If you stay here and don’t need to leave your vehicle your probably safe. We ended up staying here on our drive from Texas to Alabama and thought it was a great spot on the map to stop as its close to the highway(Historic Highway 80). The location was great due to the proximity to the highway and there was very minimal road noise. Since we got their late at night we were unable to really get a full lay of the land. We pulled in and used the turnaround and setup camp. After an incident that night with our dog rolling in human feces we knew we wouldn’t like the site of the camp in the morning. After we cleaned him(thank goodness we had lots of water and dog shampoo) we went to bed only to hear barking of stray dogs. The next morning we kept our dogs on a tight leash and were in disarray with the amount of garbage and trash around the camping area. Overall don’t stay here unless you absolutely have to. The road in is Gravel and.05 miles from a paved road. Russell Sage WMA is open Year round. There are 1-5 campsites at this location and the maximum RV length is 25 feet. You may stay 14 days at Russell Sage WMA.

Nice little campground

Upgrades have recently been made to a good campground. Nice small fishing lake and swimming pool modern bath houses really nice cabins.

Good quality, right off the interstate, good for a stopover

The layout is a bit tricky to navigate with a trailer, spots are close and the turns are sharp with bad angles. There’s a cute pond with a bridge and bench. Other than that it’s in a developed area near a truck stop, an exhibition center, across the interstate there are many restaurant selections, and there’s a tractor supply.

Amazing state park, sadly underfunded. Still worth a trip.

Pretty state park, swimming pool during summer, gorgeous trails on an enchanting bayou, wooded back in slots with a camp host, not much to do in Bastrop but this park is a great attraction. No sewage but there is a dump station. There is also tent camping, cabins, and equestrian camping and trails but there have been budget cuts that prevent horse trail maintenance and road repairs, so you don’t know what you’ll get sometimes. The park has playgrounds and pavilions.

Ideal for a several day getaway-lots to do

Great back in sites, well manicured slots and park. The RV park is spread out so you don’t feel claustrophobic. The lake is beautiful and is known in the community for its fishing. There’s certain seasons that specific types spawn and the park is HOPPING. Hard to get a spot. So much to do in this park, and the World Heritage Site is just a 20 minute drive up the road and a $4 entrance fee for a drive through tour. There are options for slots with or without sewage.

Beautiful location and high quality park

Right off of I-20 and on a scenic lake that the sun sets over. The mall is right across the interstate with many good restaurants. There are bathrooms and showers, a nice playground, basic RV supplies for purchase, pull through sites, full hookups, the office has a full kitchen, pool table, piano, and event room. I stayed long term and there were several other college girls staying there for school (like I was). The staff took good care of us and made a priority out of putting us all near each other. There is a full time maintenance staff, dumpster and dump station. It is a KOA park.

Mostly for permanent house trailers, bad part of town

I had planned on staying here, but opted for Ouachita RV park down the road because I did not feel safe. It accommodates RVs and has full hookups and a dump station, but the atmosphere isn’t worth the cheaper price. It is mainly a house trailer park.

Scenic and Restful

Lincoln Parrish Park is a relaxing and beautiful place to park it for one night or six. The park is clean, well maintained and easily navigated. They offer both RV and primitive camping along with a seperate day use area. The lake has a nice path so a walk around it is great exercise and gives the opportunity to see fish jumping and lots of ducks. Pricing is reasonable and the views are relaxing.

Very nice park

It’s a really nice place to camp. They do have restrooms but they need more attention put towards them. They have a big pavilion with a massive grill if your just interested in day use only. The fishing piers are well built and very nice. No showers and it’s primitive camping only…but I would recommend this park.

Small, good kayaking

The park is on the smaller side with plenty of cabins and good places to kayak, canoe, and fish. The bayou is very nice. The pool is a little run down looking as of late summer 2019. We went trial hiking but this was a little difficult as the walking trails aren’t really maintained (the horse trails are maintained and clearly marked).

Nice State Park

Nice hilly trails, very nice lake views, TONS of deer, nice little beach area. Very similar to Lake Darbonne State Park just a little older and shabbier, still very nice.

Great Park

Nice hilly trails for hiking, huge/nice pool, nice cabins, fishing piers, plenty of tent and RV spots. I've never seen it overly crowded. Really one of the state's nicer parks.

Beautiful Campground

Nice level sites.  Many outside sites are well shaded, clean.

Funny

A nice scene

Fun

Just great

Not the greatest place

Overgrown and neglected. I drove the miles to visit, so I stayed anyway. It can be done! Would be cool spot if it was cleaned and properly maintained.

Beautiful Area

Very nice campground, great area for kids. Campsite was right on the lake and had a gorgeous sunset. Bathrooms werent the greatest but still good. The only really bad thing was that there was poison ivy all around our campsight.

Beautiful

Just what I needed today. Quiet and clean

BEAUTIFUL LAKE

Very pretty camping area. We stayed here at site 14. Had a long pier over the water, and plenty of space between campers. Not level ground, but we managed with enough blocks to get it level. This was a back in site. Water and electric, no sewer, but had a dump station. Absolutely no cell service. Lake Claiborne was a gorgeous lake yo kayak on.

Beautiful secluded clean

This campground is wonderful clean grounds nice shower facility well lit. Beautiful lake with splash pad and park for the kids to play nice beach area . If you don't want to bring your Camper they have nice spacious cabins for rent year round reasonably priced too. Best vacation we've had in a while!

Great overnight 👍

Stayed 1 night in site 26, PT FHU on grass. Close to the interstate, quiet and beautiful sunset next to the pond, safe and tons of big pull thrus. This is our second time staying here. We did not use the amenities as we are self-sufficient and did not meet the staff as we were in/out after hours. It rained all night and was a little wet; the sites are grass. Will def stay again 👍

Stunning Views with Great Amenities

We tent camp here in early Spring in the camping area #2 and comeback weekend after weekend. Many wonderfully marked hiking trails, two of the best frisbe golf courses in Louisiana. There's a nice little beach where the kids can play and a playground area as well. The bathrooms are clean and warm (welcome in the winter and spring). The pavement is well kept and great for kids to ride bikes or scooters. The King of the Moutain Trail is my favorite becaues of it's wooden bridge and tiny waterfall.

Beautiful wooded campground. Very spacious

This campground has some pull through sites which are very convenient. Nice lake with a walking path. Quiet, spacious lots. Really enjoyed our stay here.

Secluded Beauty

Secluded in the North Louisiana Farms, on Lake D’arbonne, with large forest trails. Immense campground with back to forest or lake front and all have RV hookup. RV pumping station available. Campsites bear beach and trails. Cabins near the group pavillians and building. Renovated bathrooms and laundry. Kayak and canoe for rent for day. Boat dock and fishing pier.

Hidden...

This park, known more for their mountain biking courses than camping, is literally hidden in a neighborhood. Nice park with some primitive camping feel.

Great park!

Great park. Usually busy. Nice lake for swimming and fishing.

Great park for boaters and fishing!

Decent campgrounds. Some hiking trails. Little beach area to swim and catch some rays

Very nice renovated facilities!

This is a hidden gem north of Bastrop, Louisiana. Have camped here on multiple occasions. Every time there have been very few campers so it's almost like having the entire campgrounds to yourself. Raccoons are very curious and obviously human fed because they will walk right up to you. Best feature in the park is the Chemin-A-Haut Creek were 1000 year old Cypress trees are scattered throughout. Rent a kayak or canoe to paddle to them.
