The list seems endless for the short maiden run in this area.
Just a little heads up on Poverty Point. As they are still a relatively new park, they don't have hardly any shaded sites (or didn't two years ago), but the vast majority are totally in the open, thus will be hot in Louisiana summer sunshine. Might be a better place to visit in cooler weather.
Darbonne is very shaded
Jimmie Davis has good shade with only a few in the open. Same with Lake Claiborne.
Another nice park you may not be aware of is Lincoln Parish Park north of Ruston off HWY 33. They have full hookups with sewer. The sites are a little closer together than the state parks, but are fairly level. The sites backed up to the lake are nice and they even have some pull thru sites. They let you reserve a spot in the campground, but not a specific site. It's first come, get's choice of available sites. You might want to scope them out if you are in the area.
Another reason I would pick Darbonne or Lincoln Parish on a maiden voyage, is their proximity to local Wal-marts .......when you discover all the things you wished you had brought. LOL
