Where do you like to camp in LA?

We have only been fairly local and we have been here less than a year. Lake Bistineau is beautiful. Lot's of cypress. Great fishing but not so great for Mosquitos. The roads need some work too. The facilities are in need of updating but clean. The nicest campground hosts I have ever met! We really like Lake Claiborne. It is beautifully maintained and there is a beach. My kids are water bugs. The roads are newly paved and the facilities are newer and clean. We are heading to Claiborne this weekend for Mother's Day! If you don't mind a little road trip, Hot Springs National Park is incredibly beautiful! We were there for a week last summer. Heads up! They don't have showers. We didn't know and we still had a popup at the time😳

I think that they boiled them and used a blow torch to blacken them...... I kindly told the manager at both places that I would not feed my dog their crappy steaks.

Never eat steak at the beach. Go to Black Angus Steak house.

Gonna smack my sister in law up side the head. She didn't tell us the RV park was finished. Think she was trying to tell us something? We're on our way to visit with her now. Use to stay at Navarre Beach Campground. This year trying something new - staying at Gulf Shores/Pensacola west KOA. This Koa has a dog park and they allow American Bulldogs. Makes this a good stop. We be trucking out to Pensacola Beach. I like the food at Hemmingways and DH like Hooters for the hmmmmm hamburgers; Person ally, I like the fried pickles and Fried Fish sandwiches. Looking forward to trying new park next year.

I live in Natchitoches and have seen both Bistineau and Claiborne, but never camped at either. Always looking for some long weekend locations. Those certainly are in the running. Thats for the report.

Love Natchitoches! We came through for the Christmas festivities. The lights were great! We went to a little pub there too. Typical bar food but the atmosphere was fun. Any good camping down your way?

No. I've written koa to try and get a good cg here. No reply. We have several places with hook ups only good for passing thru. Better ones about 45 miles west on Toledo bend.

Wondering which place you ate. Mommas oyster house, poppas bar and grill or pioneer pub. Mommas has good seafood and rib eyes.

Pioneer Pub was the place. It was a Saturday night and crazy busy. We had two hungry little boys to feed and that seemed like the easiest option. The gator bites were good
