We have found another awesome park less than an hour from home.
DH plays golf often here (Delhi, LA) at Black Bear Golf Course, and came by last weekend to check out the park. We'd heard "there's no shade there!" by quite a few, along with "it's a new park, need to wait until it matures more". Not true. There are some VERY shaded lots here.
There is a water park for the kids.
Down the road a mile or so is a marina and a beach.
The sites are spacious, lots of space between camp sites. (we're actually on a small peninsula type outcropping with no neighbors on one side and on the other side they're quite a distance away)
There are some Indian mounds back behind us which were not as well developed as the others mentioned later here. These are located right on the edge of Bayou Macon/Macon Ridge.
The wifi here is the best we've experienced to date. (if that's important to ya)
Edited to add: There are also some very nice cabins here, situated out over the water.
There is also the Poverty Point Indian National Historical Mounds, the most significant "find" in the Northern Hemisphere. We went there today and it is amazing how large this area is, and the HUGE mound in the center (shaped like an eagle in flight) reportedly was built in 3 months' time, requiring 16 MILLION baskets (about 50 lbs.) of dirt hauled to and up the mound.
There is an area of the RV park that has 4 sites, totally separate from the rest of the park and would be IDEAL for a group to camp. Those are pull-thru sites. It's so private, much like your own little cove.
The largest area where we are is full hookups.
(chuckle) Folks here are *serious* about their fishing! So much so that I've seen three 5ers with their own "cricket boxes"...the kind you see in bait stands...small cabinet with legs. AND those three 5ers have small chest freezers set up outside for their fish. Evidently the fish are bitin! People are elbow to elbow in some areas of the lake here, fishing from the bank.
We'll try our poles out later on this evening. One guy 3 spaces down said his wife and son caught 50 bream last evening using crickets.
Long story long; GREAT place and we will be returning!
I'll try to post some pics when we get back home.
