A taste of the swamps in north Louisiana. Spanish moss clad Bald Cypress trees in a stereotypical Louisiana lake. Two great boat ramps, cabins and picnic tables. Keep your small dogs on a leash or you may feed the gators. Mosquitoes big enough to land at Barksdale AFB.
I camped on two occasions while in north LA on business. Bath houses are new, clean and climate controlled. Plenty of sites to choose from when I stayed though all of the waterfront sites were taken. Family friendly, not rowdy. I’d take young kids without hesitation if mine weren’t grown.
Kind of an odd location— behind an auction yard. Nice concrete slabs for RVs. Fair gravel roads, 3 very nice log cabins, at least 2 covered RV spaces. BBQ grills and fire pits are brand new. Private pond on site. Because it is relatively new they have a few bugs to work out but I would stay there again.
Bath house, water, electric, lake, pavement bike/walking path, playground, nationally recognized mountain bike course, group pavilions, primitive camping, beautiful rv spots, great place! City of Ruston is right down the road. Gas station a few ministers from the park. Gated and need a code to get in after closing.
We enjoyed our overnight here at Beaver Dam. Quiet, and very few folks in the park the night that we stayed.
Zero verizon connection at most spots.
Did not see any staff during our 24 hours there.
Showers were GREAT. HIGH pressure and clean.
Restrooms were old(er), but clean.
Great level sites. Good shade on most sites. Great space between sites, and most had concrete pads.
