This place is nice.

What can I say, tent camping, not much traffic and secluded enough with enough comfort for the kids.

Quiet and clean with nice trails

Staff was very friendly when making reservations by phone.  Park was clean and the sites while gravel, were easy to maneuver.  Bath houses were clean.

Better than expected

Our site was perfect for us. Plenty of shade at our particular site. Pad was wide enough without a slope coming out of either door. Fire pit was in a nice location and the picnic table was huge. Family was able to do plenty of bike riding around the park with only one monster hill. The park was full but spread out enough to enjoy our on space. The river area was crowded due to the day users but we found a area to keep our distance. There are some really nice sites in the upper portion of the park. The lower portion is not really ideal for our 36ft TT. But if you had a small unit it may be perfect for you. Staff was extremely friendly. We will definitely return to this park.

Good times.

First time going. Great place for the kids to go out and play. Ride bikes etc. Only negative is that the beach was over grown by grass and "beware of alligators." Kiddo and dogs had a blast. Will come back!

Quiet and Pretty

A great family atmosphere. Sites were roomy. Electric and water. Dump station available. Did not see the park host, but we reserved online. Bathrooms were clean (except the corners had cobwebs). Hiking, biking, and kayaking. We were at site 64, which is directly on the lake. Concrete pad, that was pretty level. 25 dollars a night.

Top-notch destination

Very clean, well kept state park. Hiking trails, equestrian trails, tubing, camping… they’ve got it all. Campsites are neat, well maintained. We saw maintenance staff checking things several time per day. We will definitely be back.

Nice campground

This IS NOT the Indian Creek Recreation Area located in Woodworth, LA. This campground is located in Independence, LA.

We stayed here for the weekend in Site 184. It was a great location right across from some water where you can easily put in a kayak. They also have great walking trails that shaded, maintained and easy to follow.

There are cabins that can be rented, a playground, a swimming pool and a game room for kids.

It was quite at night and during the day lots of kids riding bikes and fishing. Great family place.

This campground had a lot of what seemed liked permanent residences. They also may have been just camping sites that stayed in place. The front of the campground seemed to be where these sites are located.

A Kids Paradise

This is a campground that is very family oriented. They have bands on the weekends. The deer and pigs roam the park, visiting with the campers. A store, pool, rec room, and very clean restrooms. I do have some concerns about it though. If you are expecting quiet, it's not. (Remember kids and animals, concerts). Also watch your step, poop is every where. We even had a pig under our camper! The sites are pretty level and have full hookups. We were in site 11.

Just Go!!

We stayed for 6 nights and absolutely loved everything about it. It was quiet and serene, the red stag deer were amazing, and we loved the large pool! Bug patrol kept the ants out except for one day after it rained the night before and they couldn’t seem to keep up. Our site was at the back, kinda far from the pool, and even though we were promised a golf cart we never got one and had to drive our own vehicle to park outside the park. We did have flies and horse flies but nothing we couldn’t handle with a fly swatter. They have tiki tubing available but the busses were down, so we drove ourselves about 10-15 minutes up the road. We will definitely be back when life gets back to normal.

Loving Lake Lincoln

After this teacher/mom and her kids were sent home from school due to Covid-19, we decided that some time in nature was what we all needed as a family. Our friends and their family joined us, and we headed to Lake Lincoln State Park for a long weekend. Since it was a spur of the moment decision, there were no neighboring sites with a view of the lake to choose from. We ended up at sites 36 and 37 since access to the lake was nearby.

Our sites were very close to one another, so these would be ideal for two people traveling together. If I had not known my neighbors, I would definitely not want to stay on site 36 as its view was a direct view of our friends’ camper and their sewer connection. This did make for some great jokes later. Each site had a picnic table, a concrete pad, and a grill but no fire ring or lantern post. Sewer hook ups were a plus since the bathhouses were all shut down. We set up a tent for our college-aged son just behind the two campsites (an additional charge of $15 per night).

We all loved the amount of shade and seclusion these two sites provided. We felt like we were nestled snuggly into the pines and enjoyed a peekaboo view of the lake, a precious chapel in our “backyard,” and easy access to the lake and beach areas. We used the driver side of site 37 as our communal area for our two families and enjoyed cooking, playing games, sitting around the fire, and listening to music here. Our stay was extremely quiet even with day use visitors coming into the campground to fish and enjoy the beach area. We enjoyed several walks with our dogs touring the campground and hiking the trail. We did tour the campground but didn’t really note any specific sites that tickled our fancy. We did see several that had direct views of the lake we know we would have enjoyed. Our girls enjoyed lounging in the sun on the beach area until it was closed due to mitigation measures. We hung two hammocks easily with the multitude of trees on sites 36 and 37, and few naps were enjoyed in both during our stay. The guys did some fishing but not any catching worth speaking of, much to our dismay. More than anything, we ate well and laughed lots during our stay which is more than anyone can hope for in a vacation.

Overall, this trip cured our cabin fever during an unprecedented time in our world’s history, and we made more great memories with our dearest friends. We loved Lake Lincoln and hope to visit again in the future. Hopefully, we can do some fishing AND catching the next time around.
