Our Location: Lincoln Parish Park, Ruston, LA
We left Roosevelt State Park in Morton, Mississippi this morning before 9 AM. The skies were sunny, the temperature was a bit on the cool side but we were ready to pull out of the shaded park.

We took our time, enjoying the country side and the views. The roads were a bit bumpy in places but overall pretty good. Cement roadways down here tend to be pitted and humpy bumpy. We took our time stopping at the Louisiana Welcome Center where we chatted with a very nice fella that told us about this park and a number of other things of interest around here. We were trying to make up minds about which park to stay at, Lincoln Parish, Lake Claiborne SP or Lake Bistineau SP, all in Louisiana. We decided to check them out in order and we were very happy with the first one, Lincoln Parish Park.

It is a first come, first serve park, with a limit 14 day stay. It sits on a nice little bit of water that we can see out the door. Many sites, some of them backing onto the water, about 4 pull through sites, a number of back in sites, all with cement pads but the pads aren’t all level. Very clean, a number of trees but we are able to get some sunshine in our spot. No dumpsters, but numerous garbage cans around the park, every few spots there is another can. Lots of crisp, dried leaves on the ground, a bit of green polking through here and there. A little walk around had us checking out the clubhouse just up the hill behind us. It looked like a craft day with stuff sitting everywhere but not a single person in sight.

The price is very reasonable at $25 per day with no tax or other fees. They had trouble with my Visa card, there was no reason for it, other than their machine didn’t want to meet and greet it. It took some time before it would accept my Master Card but apparently it’s a common issue with their machine. Nice young lady at the check in counter couldn’t have been more sympathetic. More information about the park, no assigned spots, you pick the spot and security fills in the front office. So for those that come this way, you may want to check this park out.
